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).

It all started with our first Indian wedding back in 1994. Who would have thought that 24 years later, our team of 12 amazing DJs would be traveling around the world, creating unforgettable memories for countless couples? We feel truly blessed to be doing what we love and loving what we do. Over the years, we've earned the trust of thousands of couples who have allowed us to be a part of the biggest and best days of their lives. With that in mind, we set out to find ways to help couples during every step of their journey, from engagement to marriage. 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 8 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Brides, we based it on the following::

  • We have seen many brides 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 8 Entrance Songs for Brides are ranked based on what we have seen used most often within the last few years. 

Top 8 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Brides

1) Desi Girl - Dostana

The first song on the Top 8 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Brides list is the ultimate pro-girl anthem that has been used the most often in recent years. It's no surprise if you see Priyanka Chopra making a grand entrance to this song during her Sangeet ceremony with Nick Jonas. Dharma Productions knows the importance of music in their films, and this song has become a timeless favorite that people still dance to and enjoy years after its release.

2) London Thumakda - Queen

3) Radha - Student Of The Year

Despite initially thinking that this song was only suitable for brides named Radha, its popularity has helped it secure the third spot on our Top 8 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Brides list. Many brides have chosen to use this song for their Sangeet entrances because they love it, have danced to it before, and feel that it brings the right energy and vibe to their special day.

Another hit from Dharma Productions, but not every bride may appreciate the tongue-in-cheek humor of this particular song on the Top 8 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Brides list. While some people take the lyrics of songs very literally, most people choose songs based on the overall feel, beat, and hook.

5) Radha - Jab Harry Met Sejal

Although it may seem like a duplicate on the Top 8 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Brides list, Radha actually appears twice with completely different songs from different movies. We have carefully chosen the parts of each song that we feel will resonate most with brides. However, it's important to choose a DJ who understands how to play the right song at the right moment, as a poorly timed song can ruin a key moment in your wedding.

6) Cutie Pie - Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

Like London Thumakda, this fourth and final Dharma Production song on the Top 8 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Brides list is also set in a wedding scene and has a fun, upbeat tempo. While we advise couples to only listen to the song and not watch the video, it can be difficult to resist the allure of Bollywood songs that are shot in a wedding setting. It's no wonder these songs are used so often for wedding events. Fill out the form on this page and we will send you an email with all these songs on a playlist.

7) Banno - Tanu Weds Manu Returns

Both Anushka Sharma and Kangana Ranaut make two appearances each on the Top 8 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Brides list. Banno was another instant hit, and it's no surprise why it was played at every wedding for a while. While the word "sexy" may not be suitable for some, it doesn't bother most people. If you're a laid-back bride who wants to have fun, this song will be perfect for you.



8) Pallo Latke - Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana

Bollywood music is known for working in waves, and the Top 8 Sangeet Entrance Songs for Brides list ends with a classic Bollywood song that has been remade. This is not surprising as Bollywood has a history of producing remakes. Think about how many times you've danced to Himesh Reshammiya or Yo Yo Honey Singh songs. Bollywood has also given us popular item numbers like Munni and Sheila. Currently, we are in a phase of remakes and rap, and almost any new, upbeat Bollywood song has a rap on it.  Most of these views are from people trying to learn the dance steps for their performance, but it shows how popular these songs have become. You can use these songs for your entrance and add your own unique twist to it.
