Indian weddings are all about emotions and moments that families share when two people come together to tie the knot.

This emotional song from the movie Raazi will surely bring happy tears in everyone’s eyes.

Mehndi Hai Rachne Wali
Some emotional songs touch the soul and this song from the movie Zubaida is one evergreen song that delivers just that.

Slow track with Shehnai playing in the background makes it an apt song to be played at the Sangeet function.
Maye Ni Maye
We have mentioned many emotional songs where the mother is expressing her emotions for her daughter. Now let’s talk about the bride-to-be expressing her emotions of becoming a bride, conveying to the mother that she feels blessed to be getting married to the man of her dreams. This legendary song will never go out of fashion, making it a number one choice for brides-to-be and mothers to show their grooves on at the Sangeet function with elan.
Another traditional and one of the fun emotional songs for the bride-to-be and her mother to groove on is Banno from the movie Tanu Weds Manu Returns. This song with a hint of Haryanvi language is full of swag, quite literally, and will be a perfect number to show how quirky the mother-daughter are not only in their style, but their dance moves too!
The bride-to-be and her mother can either select a song based on how much they feel connected to a particular song the most or based on how fast or easy-to-follow the tempo of the song is. The duo can go with one single song or can ask a mixing expert to convert a couple of these emotional songs into a medley as well. Whatever connects to the heart and soul right!
