Dance is an important element for an Indian wedding. We Indians love to dance so much that we have a wedding function solely dedicated to it. The Sangeet ceremony is a great opportunity to let your hair down and just have fun. We know that the planning of a ladies Sangeet night takes a lot of consideration and thought, so we're here to take some of your load off. Read ahead to know how you can plan a rocking ladies Sangeet night.
Ladies Sangeet Night Themes
1. Award night:
Fancy giving out some awards for the night? Have the MC of your show hand out awards to the family members. This surely will make your ladies Sangeet night a memorable event. To take it to the next level, have a red carpet moment where a family member asks you questions before entering the venue. This is a theme which is both glamorous and fancy.
2. Then and Now:
Another interesting theme for your ladies Sangeet is the 'Then and Now' theme. Wherein the relatives can pay homage to the bride and groom's life with songs and dance performances. In this particular theme, you can include everybody. The kids can be a part of the 'childhood phase' of the performance and the teens can be a part of the 'teen phase' of the performance. The friends of the bride can act out the 'adult phase' and perform how the bride and the groom met. This theme is both interesting as well as emotional for everybody and makes a perfect match.
Are you a Bollywood buff? Then this is a fun theme to try out on your Sangeet too, with loads of posters, prints and cushions. Each of you can dress like your favourite actor and their iconic characters. Select the Bollywood era in which you want your ladies Sangeet night to be set and dance your night away.
4. Favourite series:
In this era of 'Netflix and Chill', many of the millennial brides are keeping the theme of their Sangeet night based on their favourite Tv series. If F.R.I.E.N.D.S is a series that you've come to love, you can have your ladies Sangeet night set in a Central Perk-themed venue and you can add a trivia round about the same series and whoever gets the right answer, gets a prize.
To make your celebrations even more fun and exciting, we have some entertaining games for you that you can play and have a rocking Sangeet night.
Who doesn't love a good dance-off? If you're planning to do a combined Sangeet ceremony, a dance-off between the bride's family and the groom's family is a great way to break the ice.
2. Questions about the Bride and Groom:
You can ask the MC to ask questions about the bride and the groom. You can put up small prizes for the people who answer correctly.
3. Drinking Contests:
You can combine this one with the game above. Whether you want them to drink when they fail to answer or when they answer correctly is up to you. Either way, they'll be drunk and drunk memories are the best memories.
