Witness an Indian wedding ceremony

Do you think a foreigner can participate or watch a weeding ceremony while his visit in India ?
I always heard that a indian wedding is something that you cant miss and I will be in the north of India next january and I would like to have this experience.
here is my itinerary while in India.
Delhi 29/30 dec
Udaipur 31/01 jan
Jodhpur 02/03 jan
Nimaj 04/05 jan
Jaipur 06/07/08 jan
Agra 09/10 jan
Kajuraho 11 jan
Varanasi 12/13 jan
Delhi 14/15 jan
It would be great if we could see a weeding cerimony.
Thanks again,
Fernando - Brazil

Well, I was invited to one (in Bhubaneshwar), but it was pure serendipity - I certainly didn't arrange it!

It's not likely you would be invited because weddings are a family affair.

You can watch wedding processions in the street as they make their way to the wedding venue, but probably not much more than that.

Indian weddings? Easy. Follow the Dogster rules.

When you find one - and you will - go stand outside the door and look in. Be very interested. Stand around. You'll be invited in, at least 70% of the time. Simple.

Unless you look like a hippie freak axe murderer.

Don't stay too long. Do what everybody else does. Then leave.

Dogster, I should have waited for you to reply first! You're tops when it comes to advice. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
