It’s no more just about the ladies alone at the sangeet night. Both the bride and groom prefer to hold a joint sangeet night to enjoy with their family and friends. If planned the right way, it can be the most special event in the wedding ceremony!
- Sangeet celebrations have changed dramatically with changing times
- Today,sangeet parties are all about thematic-dance,songs,decor,dresses
- These thematic sangeet ceremonies are done by professional wedding planners
My first memory of a wedding ceremony still remains seeing my uncles and the other elderly men in the family gyrating on peppy dhol beats long after the women of the family were done singing and dancing on the sangeet night. In the name of DJ, there were guys anda gaudily dressed attractive lady from the orchestra who sang any number that made the crowd stand up and dance. That was fun!
Fortunately and unfortunately for some, the sangeet night today has become a professionally managed sequential fun night. There is some kind of order in the event now which means more participation and double the fun. Most people opt for a wedding planner who also offers the services of a professionally trained choreographer to train and teach non-dancers in the wedding party.
The closest family, cousins and friends can choose songs that they can all do group dance on. The choreographer can always hold training sessions for them. Even the elderly in the family can be a part of this fun night by swinging on their all-time favourites that go well with the theme. Make it a group dance so that they do not feel awkward going up on the stage alone.
To make it extra special, ask the wedding planner to suggest a theme and weave everything in it, all performances, songs and acts. A skit is the most popular of all. It’s one way to show the bride and the groom their journey through life by the way of performances on songs. Beyond this, there can be a toast to the bride and groom by very close friends and family. This can be a surprise for them.
There could be loads of other ideas to make sangeet night a fun and special night. A wedding planner can suggest more ways to do so.
