Brides: Watch Your Baraat Arrive at the Marriott Newport Beach Hotel & Spa, Indian Wedding Venue

One of the most exciting times for a South Asian bride, is the moments before she steps out to walk down the aisle. The Marriott Newport Beach has two beautiful ceremony venues that are ideal for Indian weddings; and she can watch the baraat arrive from both. Not many venues have staging areas situated where she can watch, making it a memorable and unique experience!

When I help couples find their wedding venue, these are the subtle details that we point out as when you start planning an Indian wedding it can be pretty overwhelming with the options, ideas, considerations, not to mention that often you, your fiance/fianc√©e, both parents and siblings are often, all involved in decision making. And this is one of those things that you wouldn’t necessarily think of when your mind is swirling with bigger things like budgets, decor, clothes and jewelry. But this is one of those things that you’ll remember forever – the butterflies in your stomach and the huge smile on your face as you watch the baraat dancing their way to…you!

The Seaview Terrace features an adjoining path directly from the baraat area, where guests can seamlessly enter the ceremony space and the families can do the milni. The best part is a bridal staging suite where the bride can peak through and watch as guests arrive and watch part of the baraat! So exciting! Not a lot of venues have a room where the bride can see all the action.
