Wondering how to plan a sangeet ceremony that makes it the best party of your life? We’re here to guide you on transforming this celebration into an extraordinary event.
In the past decade or so, Sangeet ceremonies have evolved significantly. Unlike the traditional gatherings of 10-15 years ago, today’s celebrations have themes, encompassing everything from music and decor to dance. The radiance of a Sangeet ceremony is vibrant, making it an eagerly anticipated event for all.
Earlier, the night before a wedding was anticipated with excitement. It was a time of joy, with female family members dancing with the bride. Men would eventually join in, adding to the festivities as the night progressed. The grand finale had the rhythmic beats of the dhol, with the wedding party attempting to synchronize their steps to the lively tunes.
Fast forward to today, and the dynamics have undergone a complete transformation. Brides no longer have reserves about showcasing their dance moves before the wedding. The couple joins forces, dancing together with guests from both sides of the aisle. Some even merge the Sangeet night with a cocktail event, introducing an element of cheer with beverages.
Here’s how to elevate your sangeet ceremony to a night that remains etched in memory-
One of the highlights of a Sangeet is the thematic approach that takes center stage. It’s no longer about simply hiring the best DJ and dancing to Bollywood tunes in a conventional setting. Instead, modern wedding planners ensure that this pre-wedding extravaganza becomes a reflection of the couple’s history, interests, and journey. Personal touches manifest in the décor, dance performances, stage setup, gifts, food, and every other facet of the celebration.
A theme-based Sangeet ceremony also adds an element of anticipation for guests who eagerly await surprises. Therefore, if a wedding is on the horizon for your family, ensure that your wedding planner crafts the Sangeet around a captivating theme.
