The Photo Diary

The wedding season is here in all its glory, which means it's time for the entire squad to get together for sangeet dance practice sessions! As anyone who's ever performed at a wedding would tell you, these practice sessions are the most enjoyable part of every wedding and will leave you with memories (and videos) that you'll value for the rest of your life. Even crazy discussions about the bridal lehenga, wedding invitations and wedding decor happen here. Luckily, Bollywood loves weddings just as much as we do, and gives us awesome Hindi wedding songs every year. Refer to our curated playlist of top Bollywood wedding dance songs and get-set for a rocking sangeet night! 

For the bride and the bridesmaids

The bridesmaids' dance is the most glamorous performance of the night with lots of twirling girls showing off their best dance moves to some chirpy wedding songs. We suggest starting the night with this one because our lovely bridesmaids know how to get the audience's attention. From classy to dhinchak, we have wedding dance songs for all kinds of bride squads. What do you pick?

Laung Gawacha

Here, the groom's sisters take to the stage on the Nucleya reprisal for the hit number, choreographed by Lachak Choreography.

Lagdi Hai Thaai (Simran)

If you want ideas for a Lagdi Hai Thaai dance performance, we recommend a wedding do captured by CoolBluez Photography or this lip-dub version captured by Adjan Photos.

Girls Like To Swing (Dil Dhadakne Do)

Happy Dancing Feet used this song to choreograph a stunning bride squad dance performance recently.

Chittiyan Kalaiyan (Roy)

Three years after Roy released, this song is still entrenched in our collective mindspaces, often turning into a hot favourite for group dance performances. Consider using it for yours too.

Saiyaan Superstar (Leela)

For the bride and groom

We love the romantic first dances in a wedding gown just as much as the crazy couple dance-offs. Get both moods together in your couple dance by creating a medley playlist. We suggest starting with a mushy Bollywood number and then surprising your guests with a fun wedding dance song that suits you as a couple. Here are some popular suggestions:

For the romantic couple -

We also recommend:

Enna Sona (Ok Jaanu) 

Often, people combine an Enna Sona dance performance with 'Shape of You' by Ed Sreehan (like the Vidya Vox variant) or Despacito. You can take cues from how this couple did it. It's also a song that works well if the groom wants to sing paeans for his lady love, as captured in this wedding film for JasParam by Strange Sadhu Weddings.

Humsafar – Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya

Darkhast – Shivaay

Nazdeekiyan - Shaandaar

Raabta – Raabta

For the groom’s squad

The groom’s squad is responsible for adding swag to the sangeet, which is why they can pick almost any Bollywood wedding dance song and turn it into a sangeet number. Punjabi songs are a must-have here because even a bad dancer can pull off some fun dhol moves.

High Rated Gabru – Guru Randhawa

Cutie Pie – Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

Na ja – Pav Dharia

9 se 12- Judwa 2

Suit - Hindi Medium

For the family members

When planning the sangeet, you dare not ignore the family dance performances because nobody lights up the dance floor like the mama mamis and chacha chachis of the house. Watch them show off their Dharmender and Meena Kumari moves to some fun marriage songs and take the party by storm!

Galla Goodiyan – Dil Dhadkne Do

Maahi Ve – Kal Ho Na Ho

Navrai Majhi – English Vinglish

Say shava shava – Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham

Everyone in the wedding party comes together for these 2-minute performances on such wedding dance songs that become the highlight of all pre-wedding functions. Don't forget the behind-the-scenes videos and boomerangs, which will always be special for you and your special ones. Don't hesitate to hire a professional wedding choreographer who will take away the stress of planning and make you enjoy the practice sessions even more. The other important partner will be your wedding videographers and photographers, so make sure they know when the scale and style of your performances. 

Happy dancing!
