Sangeet is one of the most energetic and radiant pre-wedding ceremonies that is enjoyed by all. The word Sangeet in hindi means music and thus the Sangeet Ceremony is full of music, songs, dance and enjoyment. This musical night is not only for the union of the couple but also to create a bond between the two families. This Ceremony brings down the barriers between the two families and creates a fun environment.
Basically Sangeet Ceremony takes place a day before the wedding day, being as lavish or as low key depending upon the families and their budget. It is not just a function of dance and music but also holds lot of significance traditionally. It started in north India and later spread across the country. Sangeet Ceremony is conducted to celebrate the two hearts coming together.
The choreographers teach cool dance steps that are performed on a grand stage to the entire relative bandwagon. The relative perform in pairs or in groups, several sets of uncle and aunties from each side, the bride’s and groom’s parents have a set and prepare dance performances on popular Bollywood songs. The cousins from each side usually dance in groups or will perform skits. The bride and the groom take part in the performance by dancing on romantic numbers. I am sure you must be practicing your dance performance and want to shine in the ceremony. Well, for this you need a right pair of outfit, accessories and footwear that will compliment your look and keep you comfortable while dancing.
Sangeet Outfit for Own Wedding
As I mentioned above Sangeet Ceremony is very tiring with lots of fun and enjoyment as you have to dance the whole evening. If it’s your own wedding pairing up your outfit with your partner is a must, this will enhance your dance performance and also make you look like an idle couple. Go for same colour Lehenga and Sherwani making sure Blouse and Pajama is of same colour or go for full same colour outfit. It will also work great with contrasting Gown and Kurta Colour.
Sangeet Outfit for Cousins Wedding
Hell yes! It’s your cousins wedding and you have to rock the dance floor with right moves and right outfit. I know it is difficult to carry Skirt and Saree while dancing thus try to go for light weight that will help you dance gracefully. Make sure the colours are bright and create a good colour contrast with your Bouse or Crop Top. Gold and Silver Embroidery on the Dupatta will make you Shine out.
Sangeet Outfit for Friend’s Wedding
How can you leave your friend alone to rock the dance floor you should also join her! This can only be fulfilled by styling appropriately for Sangeet Ceremony. Here I have mentioned some Styling tips that will help you get the right look. It is quite obvious that you won’t get dressed up like the bride, but surely you can opt for simple and contrasting colour Chudidar Suits, go for Anarkali with good embroidery and border that will enhance your look. For elegant and stylish look try to go for Dhoti Pants and Crop top or a Kurti.
Accessories for Sangeet
Accessorizing the right outfit for pre-wedding ceremonies is very confusing because you need good designs that match your outfit and also which enhances the look. You should go for a Necklace, Earring and Maang Tikka that will complement each other, make sure they are of same design as different ones may break your look. Try to go for Hand Harness or Bangles, make sure you don’t wear them together unless it’s your own wedding.
Footwear for Sangeet Ceremony
I know you must be having huge collection of heels but which sadly doesn’t go well with all of your ethnic wear. If you want right footwear for your ethnic wear, try Jootis is a Traditional Indian Footwear. It will be very comfortable while dancing as they have no heels and are flat. If you don’t want flats and want some heels go for golden or coloured stoned heels that will match any Indian Wear. Keep Sandal as last option as they generally don’t go well with Lehengas and Sarees. Here you go, Sangeet ready!
