Generally, the marriage ceremony takes place at the bridegroom's residence. A day before of marriage date, the bridegroom has to send his people with a group of a band party to bring a new bride.  They decorate the new bride with different beautiful attire. All the expenditures are beared by the bride groom's party. No dowry is paid by the bride's party to the bridegroom. If the bride's parents want to give something, they have to take special permission from Jamatia Hoda.
