The Baraat is a bridegroom's wedding procession in India and Pakistan. It is customary for the bridegroom to travel to the wedding venue (often the bride’s house) on a mare, accompanied by his family members.

The baraat can become a large procession, with its own band, drummer and dancers. The groom and his horse are covered in finery and do not usually take part in the dancing and singing; that is left to the "baraatis" or people accompanying the procession. The term baraati is also more generically used to describe any invitee from the groom's side.

The baraat, is accompanied by the rhythm of the dhol. The groom is sometimes greeted with garlands and aarti.
