Because the song Doli saja ke rakhna is not to be taken lightly and your bridal entry will be an authentic epitome to be remembered forever.
Pro Tip: Add fabric to the design to avoid getting entangled in the flowers while getting off the Doli.
6. A Bollywood Dance Entrance
Bollywood movies are known for their superb dance and song numbers. If you are a natural dancer or singer, instead of the plain walk why not turn your wedding entrance into a Bollywood style dance number.
