One of the first events acting as a build-up to a wedding is the Mehandi ceremony. Loved by the ladies and girls alike, this event involves applying  Mehandi to the bride and all the ladies. It is always a fun-filled event and therefore needs some music. Here are some popular Mehandi songs:

  • Mehandi Laga Ke Rakhna (Film- Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge) (the eternal favorite)
  • Kudiyan De Vich (Tanu Weds Menu)
  • Mehandi Mehendi (Film- Chori Chori Chupke Chupke)
  • Mehandi Rachan Lagi (Folk song of Rajasthan)

2. Sangeet Mein Sangeet Ho Jaaye

Abhi to party shuru hui hai

The Sangeet is easily one of the most popular festivities at a wedding. It is our very own version of the Western bridal shower event. A few members of the guy’s family are also invited. A good amount of playfulness ensues between the two sides. Let’s look at a Sangeet through the songs:

  • Phatte Tak Nachna (Film- Dolly Ki Doli)
  • Saturday Saturday (Film- Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya)
  • Iski Uski (Two States)
  • Abhi To Party Shuru Hui Hai (Film – Khoobsurat)
