When I was little, my mother told me about a groom who arrived at her friend’s daughter’s wedding in a golden chariot pulled by a white horse. To a 5-year-old fully versed in the World of Disney, that just sounded absolutely magical. Over the years we’ve all heard about our auntie’s brother’s son who arrived on an elephant. Or in a stretch Range Rover.

While talking to brides for this issue, we met Sonali, whose now-husband Prayes arrived on the day of their wedding in a helicopter and then boarded (boarded?) an elephant to the ceremony. Yes, a helicopter and an elephant.

So my question for you, dear readers: What is the most creative or extreme way you’ve seen a groom arrive at a desi wedding?

Watch Prayes’ arrival on YouTube after the jump.

    I haven’t seen an entrance more extreme than that, but after watching the video I now get Roxy’s hoi-hoi-hoi reference in Snap Happy. 🙂
