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. But before the party begins, there are a few more intimate moments to go through; one being the mother son dance. Most of the time the groom will choose an Indian song for his dance with his mother, but we wanted to give you a mix of Indian and American songs that are great for a mother son dance.
