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).
In 1994, we did our first Indian wedding. Who would have guessed that 25 years later, the company would grow into a team of 12 amazing DJ's that travel around the world making memories for couples. We are truly blessed to do what we love and love what we do. Thousands of couples have trusted us with the biggest and best days of their lives. We wanted to figure out a way to help couples during various parts of their journey from getting engaged to being married. The first part of our blogs focused on Venues, followed by Vendors, and now it's time for Music.
The reception is one of the most fun parts of the entire weekend. Couples look forward to this event the most. They get to finally let loose and party with friends and family. You have to set the right tone for the night. If you are excited and energized then people will feed off that energy and do the same. Your bridesmaids entrance plays a big role in the vibe for the night. Because let's be real, who run the world? GIRLS! There is a number of ways the bridesmaids can make their entrance by coming in dancing and singing the words, some have choreographed moves, and some come in smiling and waving. Whatever your preference, pick a song that is upbeat and the crowd can clap along too. Most of the time the bridesmaids are choosing American songs for their entrance, but we wanted to give you a mix of Indian and American songs for their entrance.

- We have seen many weddings where the bridesmaids either use these songs or consider using these songs.
- We kept a fun night in mind that needed an energetic entrance.

15) Pallo Latke - Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana
If someone does something and people like it, expect for it to happen over and over again. It happens with singers and types of songs. Think about how many Himesh Reshammiya songs you knew the words to (you know you did) or how many times you sang Yo Yo Honey Singh (aaaaaa). Don't feel bad, we all did it. Bollywood kept spitting out Item Numbers (Munni, Sheila, etc). Currently we are in a phase of remakes and rap. I feel like I hear a new remake every week and almost any type of upbeat new song Bollywood song has a rap on it. Some remakes are good and some are bad. Some raps are horrible and some are decent. With over 170 Million views, they are doing something right. Most of these views are people figuring out steps for their performance but it shows you how popular this remake has become and you can use it for your entrance.

16) Banno - Tanu Weds Manu Returns
Anushka Sharma makes her second appearance while Kangana Ranaut makes her first on the Top 18 Indian Wedding Reception Bridesmaids Entrance Songs list.. Banno was another instant hit. There was a time you would hear it at every wedding. It would be used more often for entrances if it didn't have the word sexy (or as they say Saaaxy) in it. I don't think most people mind, but again if lyrics are your thing, this may not be for you. If you are a relaxed bride that wants to have fun, this will work for you.
17) Kudi Gujarat Di - Sweetiee Weds NRI
Another great sing along song you can use for the bridesmaids entrance. You don't have to be Gujarati to use this song; we've seen this used by a lot of non-Gujarati people. It's one of the better remakes of it's time with a stronger beat and cleaner sound. If you still need a venue for your wedding weekend, check out our blog for the Top 22 Venues in DFW.
