This song is quirky, fun and can be enjoyed by all the guests especially the Punjabi uncles.
For most Desis, shaadi season lasts all year round.
The continual nach-gana, masti, wedding shopping, celebration, sangeet practices, bachelor parties – all the vital components for a big fat Desi wedding!
And where there are Asian weddings, there has to be a dedicated Bollywood style sangeet night. There is not a single occasion that our dear Bollywood doesn’t have a song already prepared. You name it, they’ve got it!
Bollywood songs offer a platter full of emotions suitable for Desi weddings right from emotional bidaai to naughty teaser ones.
The entire sangeet and mehndi ceremony depend on the selection of the perfect wedding songs full of fun and excitement that will force you from your seat to dance. We’ve handpicked a few of our favourites.
‘Mehndi Laga Ke Rakhna’ (Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge)
This classic song from DDLJ has remained on wedding playlists for the last decade. It’s perfect for the couple to officially flirt and tease each other in front of the whole world, just before their wedding.
‘Gal Mitthi Mitthi’ (Aisha)
This superb Punjabi song is one of the few good things to come out of Aisha. Easy to choreograph, it can be enjoyed by the younger members of the family, mostly the groom and his best men.
‘Navrai Majhi’ (English Vinglish)
It will be a crime to be the mother of the bride and not dance on this song. This beautiful marathi song has the perfect lyrics for mother who is ready to give away her daughter.
‘Ainvayi Ainvayi’ (Band Baaja Baaraat)
Made popular by the quirky dance moves and Ranveer Singh’s air guitar, this song is great for big groups to dance to. Let down your hair and unleash your inner rock god!

This song is from the fresh lot and will be played this wedding season for sure. It is quirky, fun and can be enjoyed by all the guests especially the Punjabi uncles!
‘London Thumakda’ (Queen)
This song is easily ‘the wedding song of 2014’. With crazy beats and eccentric lyrics, you can guarantee that there won’t be a single person in the room who won’t dance on this song.
‘Bole Chudiyan’ (K3G)
This song has to be performed by the bride and the bridesmaids if the bride is a drama queen who loves being filmy. Mimicking the dance steps which Kareena does is as easy and graceful as it can get.
‘Saajan Ji Ghar’ (Kuch Kuch Hota Hai)
This adorable song is a song which can be performed by the groom’s side to tease the bride-to-be. It talks about the groom who has come to take away his love, but how she is shying away and making excuses.
‘Wah Wah Ramji’ (Hum Aapke Hain Koun)
This song is a hymn for the groom’s brother and the bride’s sister. Ever since the movie came out, there is not a single Indian wedding where the brother and the sister respectively have not performed on this classic Salman-Madhuri song.
‘Radha’ (Student Of The Year)
This song can be throughly enjoyed by the friends of the couple who tease each other and may even fall in love during the wedding fever.
