Indian Sikh Destination Wedding in Lake Como
Rehearsal Day & Wedding Day
1. Rehearsal – a Day before the Wedding
A day before your Sikh Indian Wedding Italy, we have a mandatory rehearsal meeting with the couple, their parents, significant members of the family and resort planner to go through the timeline of the wedding day sequence.
Details of the Baraat, Milnee and bridal processional, along with start and finish times are confirmed. Resorts can sometimes be massive, up to a mile long, and coordinating early morning logistics is extremely important.
The couple is ‘walked’ through the entire wedding protocol, including Matha Tek, Kalgi removal, Ardas and Palla Ceremony. They practice walking the 4 Lavaan and are assisted with prolonged sitting for the ceremony.
Feel free to check out our FAQ page for answers to questions or concerns you may have regarding your Indian Sikh Wedding in Italy. Over the years, countless couples have thanked us for the introduction and rehearsal meeting.
2. Oversee Ceremony Setup
Early in the morning before sunrise, on the wedding day, we arrive at the ceremony area to make sure the decor company arranges the area according to the agreed specs. We oversee the respectful transformation of the space into a Gurudwara-type ambiance. Once the decor setup is complete, we arrange the Altar and Kirtan stages with respective religious materials.
Following this, we make sure the sound system is set precisely so we have pristine, clear, unobstructed sound during your Como Lake Sikh Indian Wedding ceremony.

3. Baraat &
Many families choose to have traditional cultural wedding ceremonies before the wedding. This can include the groom’s sisters putting on the Kalgi and Sehra.
Even at a Indian Sikh Destination Wedding in Lake Como, many times the groom often arrives on a horse for the Milnee Ceremony, with his family, relatives, and friends dancing alongside the symbolic dhol player.
Prior to the Milnee we assist and delegate the tying of head coverings. This is followed by a brief introduction, overview

Interfaith & Multi-Racial Couples

We welcome all cultures and all human traditions to celebrate their Sikh ceremony in Tuscany Italy.
