Weddings in the early days were a very serious affair with rigid rituals, songs to melt hearts, and emotional outbursts. They still are, but with a more relaxed atmosphere where families enjoy every ritual with music and dance.
This is reflected most in the Sangeet ceremony where all the close relatives and friends give dance performances. It is the Sangeet ceremony that adds glamour and spice to the weddings. It is interesting to witness the elderly swinging to the old wedding songs or couples dancing on romantic numbers. Even sisters and brothers, niece and nephews give wedding dance performances. This is where choreographers for sangeet come in.
