It is singularly your duty to handle the dance performances during the roka, mehendi, and sagai. With the plethora of cousins and friends volunteering/not willing to dance, you will have to take it on your shoulders to sort out the dancing sequences.

Phew! We told you it is more laborious than it looks.
Right from helping them with their wedding outfit on stage to double-checking their trousseau packing, give them an extra hand that they can rely on.
