Our brides and grooms 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 24 years later, the company would grow into a team of 12 amazing DJ's that travel 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.
When coming up with the Top 6 Indian Wedding Grooms Entrance Songs, we based it on the following::
- Although some grooms are coming into instrumental music or no music at all, most still plan on entering into songs with words. This blog only focuses on Bollywood music that works perfectly for entrances.
- We have seen many grooms either use these songs or consider using these songs.
- We wanted to give you lots of options so you can use the best one for you and your second favorite for your groomsmen, if they are making an entrance right before you.
- We have put together this list with a mix of upbeat songs that are current and classics.
- 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 6 Indian Wedding Grooms Entrance Songs are ranked based on what we have seen used most often within the last few years.
1) Tainu Leke from Salaam-E-Ishq
Salman Khan & Priyanka Chopra take the first position on our Top 6 Indian Wedding Grooms Entrance Songs list. In the last few years, we have seen this used the most often. In fact, as we write this blog, it was used last weekend for a wedding we just did. Don't be surprised if you see Nick Jonas using this track as his entrance song when he marries Priyanka in real life.

2) Sajanji Ghar Aye from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai
This 1998 song is a classic. The Top 6 Indian Wedding Grooms Entrance Songs wouldn't be complete without the second most popular track used for entrances over 2 decades later. Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are going to be on this list the most often. It seems they always figure out a way to put weddings songs into their movies. A great way for grooms to be involved with their wedding, is music selection. Earn some brownie points by sending your fiance this blog on the perfect instrumental music for her to walk into at your wedding ceremony.
3) Aaj Se Teri from Padman
Arijit Singh is one of the best current singers in India. This is the newest song on the Top 6 Indian Wedding Grooms Entrance Songs list. When we put this on on Music Monday post on Instagram, we got a lot of grooms excited. We release a lot of wedding tips in our posts and behind the scenes action in our stories.

Often our couples look for songs that haven't been played before (at least not often), don't be surprised if this song becomes a groom favorite soon.

4) Mehndi Laga Ke from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol make their second and final appearance on this list. DDLJ is a cult classic and deserves to be one of the Top 6 Indian Wedding Grooms Entrance Songs even though its the oldest song on this list (1995). Most grooms were born around this time. If your parents made you hear this growing up and you like the song, it might be a great option for you to use this track. I think by 2020 this song will make a comeback since it will be 25 years since the album has released. If you still need a decorator, check out the Top 7.
5) Shubhaarambh from Kai Po Che!
Chetan Bhagat is one the best contemporary book writes in India. Bollywood movies based on his books always have great music. We have noticed that since this song came out in 2013, it's been used most often by our Gujarati grooms. The song has both Gujarati and Hindi in it. For some strange reason, T-Series never posted the official version of this song online. We have a crystal clear audio version for all our grooms that choose this song, but we had to use an unofficial video for you to hear the song on our blog. Fill out the form on this page and we will send you an email with all these songs on a playlist. Need a planner for your wedding? Check out the Top 10.
6) Gal Mithi Mithi Bol from Aisha
The final spot on the Top 6 Indian Wedding Grooms Entrance Songs list goes to this Sonam Kapoor movie. She recently got married and I would bet this song got used somewhere during the celebrations. This song usually get picked by our South Indian or Punjabi grooms. Each region likes different parts of this song. The music has a South Indian feel and the beats sound Punjabi. It's also great for mixed/fusion couples. If you want to keep up with new music or are looking for some great tips to make your wedding fun, follow us on Instagram.
