Court in Baraut weddings follow a prescribed format that has been handed down through the centuries. The wedding ceremony goes on until the couple decides to get married again, in which case they renew their wedding vows. It is customary to bless the bride and groom with white powder and add a grain of salt to perform the 'thank you' ritual. After the marriage ceremony, the bride and groom should visit their respective homes to offer their blessings to the new family. Another difference between a civil marriage and a court marriage in Baraut is the dowry. In a civil marriage, the dowry is given by the bride's family to the groom. This dowry is known as a mali, which is a sum of money paid to the bride's family to be transferred to the bride's hands. By tradition, the dowry is only given if the bride is young and beautiful. The process of getting a civil wedding conducted in Baraut begins when the representative of the bride's family visits the home of the groom. The families are not necessarily present during the entire wedding ceremonies. Court in Baraut weddings are usually conducted in a private place such as the court of justice or the local palace. The wedding celebrations can last from one day to three days depending on how long the couple or their families want it to be. Sometimes the bride and groom go to the court of justice for the civil wedding and then move to the local palace for the traditional wedding.
The people of Araya Samaj marriages are extremely religious and follow the rites and traditions of their religion strictly. The weddings in this religion are not very flashy or exciting. There are no fireworks or show. It is all about exchanging the vows and taking an oath to stay true to each other till death separates the couple forever.
