Our brands

    It’s a well-known fact that loud, catchy numbers are what Indian weddings are made of – apart from a healthy dose of Sabyasachi and biryani. From DJs to traditional fare like tabla and guitar performances alongside bands that do covers or original music, it’s all about blending tradition with new-age sounds and creating a contemporary vibe. What’s big is the dancing, which in turn means the right playlist. So we picked out the top 20 songs that really define the quintessential Indian wedding playlist – whether it’s the baraat dancing or the Sangeet night couple performances. 

    For the bride’s performance

    For the bride, it’s all about creating the right ambience and mood with her music  – that means, softer notes, romantic slow songs that also add a bit of fun to the mix. 

    Ghar More Pardesiya – Kalank

    Dilbar – Satyameva Jayate 

    Tareefan – Veere Di Wedding 

    Yeh Moh Moh Ke Daage – Dum Laga Ke Haisha 

    Meri Mummy Nu Pasand Nahi Tu – Sunanda Sharma

    Couple songs

    A good mix would be one that has both romantic songs and those that showcase some great couple moves. 

    Aankh Maarey – Simmba

    Slow Motion – Bharat 

    Morni Banke – Badhaai Ho 

    Akh Lad Jaave – Loveyatri 

    Radha – Harry Met Sejal 

    Family performances

    It’s not easy finding music for the entire family to dance on – but some classic Punjabi numbers coupled with old school remixes should suffice. 

    Gud Nal Ishq Mitha – Navraj Hans

    Gallan Goodiya – Dil Dhadak Ne Do 

    Jawaani song – Student Of The Year 2

    Dheeme Dheeme, Pati, Patni Aur Woh

    Your best friends are all about naughty fun and the songs you pick need to reflect that. We picked out some that are evergreen and the rest are, well, easy to choreograph

    Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiya – Student Of The Year 2

    First Class – Kalank 

    Bom Diggy Bom –  Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

    Groom’s solo

    This one’s a bit tricky since most grooms find it hard to find a tune that matches their dancing skills to their emotions. But we managed to find a few that work for their style.

    Sweetheart hai – Kedarnath
