Believe it or not but Punjabi weddings are one of the most fun-filled weddings in Indian traditions. It is not just the fun, but small-small emotional moments that make them the ‘Big Fat Punjabi Weddings’. And, it is these small things that are funny yet full of emotions that we observe at Punjabi weddings. Wouldn’t you agree, that all these things always happen at a Punjabi wedding without fail?
So, we are here to talk about all the things we see at Punjabi weddings:
1) Late Baraat- Isn’t This Obvious In A Punjabi wedding?
If you have ever been a part of Punjabi wedding then you must have seen that baraats are usually late to the wedding venue. And, why not, they have to dance a lot and without some fun dance moves, the baraat doesn’t move ahead. Especially, the aunties are seen performing in the baraat.

2) They Take Their Bar Wherever They Go
Yes! This is true. Have you ever seen a Punjabi without a glass of whiskey in his hand? That is how ‘Punjabiyan di battery charge rehndi hai’.
3) Dhol Walas – Bari Barsi
No Punjabi wedding is a big fat punjabi wedding without Dhol Walas and specially without Bari Barsi being played. Also, the DJ has to play ‘Sadi Rail Gaddi’ where all the guests have to come on the DJ floor for the dance.
4) People Throwing Money While Dancing
Celebration is just incomplete without people throwing money. That is just the way to show how happy they are.
