After celebrating a ton of weddings this decade, it is 2020 and finally safe to say that the heart and soul of every Indian wedding is the wedding music and for this very crucial reason, we cannot keep calm as the wedding season in 2019 has given us songs that wouldn't let us leave the dance floor! Be it the serene bridal entry, the groom's swag entry to the bidaai the playlist has it all covered with the trending tunes of 2019.
The DJ-waale babus have made sure that every gaana hit the chords right and drove us crazy for good or gave us goosebumps for all the happy reasons! Here are a handful of our favourites for every chance you get to dance at the wedding ceremonies - a blast from the past that will give us goals for 2020.
The Graceful Walk Down The Aisle

The dreamy and subtle, yet extravagant #Virushka wedding gave us some real inspiration in 2019 and for years to come. Her walk down the aisle with the phoolon ki chadar in her gorgeous Sabyasachi floral lehenga has made many of us weak in our knees.
This song has made sure that every girl's dream to enter the wedding graciously was made real!
The Unforgettable Swagger Entry
The year 2019 has seen a variety of swagger grooms entering their wedding in all sorts of innovative and cool ways - from Royal Enfields to horses to autos, the year has seen it all. However, the classic song Tenu Leke will never cease to raid the groom's playlist for the perfect entry.
Ready the horses to take your bride away yet with Tenu Leke on the backdrop?
The Bride's Thumka
The brides in 2020 have made sure to grace the big day with a jaw-dropping performance. It was either the engagement or the Sangeet and even the pre-wedding shoot has seen the brides flaunting the thumkas, and it was a treat to watch the lady of the hour twirl gracefully in her lehenga.
The brides did choose a lot of trending songs, but our favourite pick for the year would absolutely be Morni Banke.
The Groom's Jhatka
The groom has always been the surprise element of the wedding ceremonies and you never know what has he got in store! Most of the sangeet performances of 2019 has seen the groom surprised the crowd by joining his squad in dancing or by flashmob-ing the bride's troop too!
Aankh Marey with the modern mixes and the feel of the 90s was a rage in 2019 and the steps were nothing short of awesome!
The Dainty Bridesmaids
From Madhuri's hand on the forehead step to Kareena's Bole Chudiyan, we are sure your bride squad ahs it all prepared and practised to make it perfect to the T for the BFF's big day! They are the glam factors and they will leave no stone unturned to make their dance performance the one with the extra oomph factor!
With all their beauty and sass, their thumkas were seen in sync with Jass Manak's Lehanga in the weddings of 2019 and this song is sure to make it big in 2020 too!
There is no denying that the groom's squad adds to all the fun and excitement. From teasing to drunken dances to running for the sudden chores, they are the gifts of god to a wedding ceremony!
To celebrate the big day and the blessing of having a dashing squad, the groomsmen in 2019 have picked Naah Goriye as their Sangeet anthem and god bless those moves because we are loving it!
The Most-awaited Romance
To the fairytale come-true moment of your life and to the vows of happily forever and after, the bride and groom's dance is the most awaited performance! Be it your first dance or be it one for fun on Sangeet, your dance has got to be the best catch and it will be a memory for a lifetime to hold on to!
From the Bhangra number Koka by Badshah to the slow and romantic Perfect by Ed Sheeran, this wedding season the couples have gone the stretch to dance their shoes off on stage! But our favourite picks have to be Kaun Nachdi for the fun couples and Duniyaa for the utterly-butterly romantic ones!
The Family Tashan

The song Gallan Goodiyan had taken the year by a storm when the entire family participated in the dance and got us all super excited, but Anil Kapoor is a blessing to Indian wedding songs' playlist and his Gud Naal Ishq Mitha with the new twist has made it THE wedding song for the family in 2019 and we bet you cannot stop tapping your feet!
The Dhol and Band Baja still play a very significant role in the wedding ceremonies, but most of these Bollywood songs have also surprised us by taking the limelight at Indian weddings and the pre-wedding ceremonies! The songs are famous, the steps get you hooked, and who doesn't love all the masala that the pop music in India brings to a celebration?
