Our couples love us because of our knowledge and experience with many different music genres. It's natural for Indian wedding couples to seek our advice on what would be the best fit for them for all of the key wedding moments. Half of the Indian weddings we DJ are with both the bride and groom being of South Asian descent (Hindu, Christian or Muslim). The other half of the weddings we do are mixed or fusion weddings where one person is from South Asian descent and the other is not (White, Black, Hispanic or Asian).
It's hard to believe that it all started with our first Indian wedding back in 1994. Fast forward 24 years, and our humble beginnings have evolved into a team of 12 incredible DJs who travel the world, creating unforgettable memories for couples. We feel truly blessed to do what we love and love what we do, having been trusted by thousands of couples to make their most special days even more extraordinary. With this in mind, we wanted to find a way to help couples throughout their entire wedding journey, from the moment they get engaged to their big day. The first part of our blogs focused on Venues, followed by Vendors, and now it's time for Music.
We have seen the importance of Sangeets grow tremendously over the last few years. For some cultures its more important and fun than the reception. Some of our Hindu Gujarati couples that used to have Garbas the night before have moved to either having a Sangeet instead or a combination of Garba and Sangeet mixed together. These events start with performances, followed by garba, rass and then open dancing with mostly Bollywood music.. Sangeets have always been a huge part of our Hindu Punjabi couples' wedding weekend. The evening starts with performances and ends with lots of dancing consisting of mostly Bollywood and Bhangra music. Our Ismaili couples see the biggest change when it comes to pre-wedding events. The festive event used to be a Pithi and then over the years it has become a combination of a Pithi/Sangeet. Traditional ceremonies followed by performances and ending with an open dance floor with mostly Bollywood music. This is usually the most fun night for these couples because they have more dancing on this day verses other days. Other Muslim couples have a similar event with the Mehndi night having performances followed by open dancing. For some Muslim couples, this is the only night with dancing. We love this night because we help people have fun and it gives us a chance to understand what the crowd will like the next day.
When coming up with the Top 12 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Couples, we based it on the following:
- We have seen many couples either use these songs or consider using these songs.
- We wanted to give you many options so you can use the best one for you and your second favorite for your wedding party that is making an entrance right before you if you didn't want to share a song with them (most people use the same song).
- We kept a fun night in mind that needed an energetic entrance.
- Focus on listening to the song and not watching the video. Don't overlook the perfect song because you don't like the video. No one will see the video, they will all be watching you.
The following Top 12 Entrance Songs for Couples are ranked based on what we have seen used most often within the last few years.

4) Dilliwali Girlfriend - Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani
Although Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone's "Dilliwali Girlfriend" is still a popular choice for Sangeet entrances, it has been moved out of the top three due to the line that implies the groom left his ex-girlfriend to be with the bride.
