We got you the essential playlist for 2019 Indian weddings

It’s a well-known fact that loud, catchy numbers are what Indian weddings are made of – apart from a healthy dose of Sabyasachi and biryani. From DJs to traditional fare like tabla and guitar performances alongside bands that do covers or original music, it’s all about blending tradition with new-age sounds and creating a contemporary vibe. What’s big is the dancing, which in turn means the right playlist. So we picked out the top 20 songs that really define the quintessential Indian wedding playlist – whether it’s the baraat dancing or the Sangeet night couple performances. 

For the bride’s performance


For the bride, it’s all about creating the right ambience and mood with her music  – that means, softer notes, romantic slow songs that also add a bit of fun to the mix. 

Ghar More Pardesiya – Kalank

Dilbar – Satyameva Jayate 

Tareefan – Veere Di Wedding 

Yeh Moh Moh Ke Daage – Dum Laga Ke Haisha 

Meri Mummy Nu Pasand Nahi Tu – Sunanda Sharma

Couple songs

A good mix would be one that has both romantic songs and those that showcase some great couple moves. 

Aankh Maarey – Simmba

Slow Motion – Bharat 

Morni Banke – Badhaai Ho 

Akh Lad Jaave – Loveyatri 

Radha – Harry Met Sejal 

Family performances

It’s not easy finding music for the entire family to dance on – but some classic Punjabi numbers coupled with old school remixes should suffice. 

Gud Nal Ishq Mitha – Navraj Hans

Gallan Goodiya – Dil Dhadak Ne Do 

Jawaani song – Student Of The Year 2

Dheeme Dheeme, Pati, Patni Aur Woh 

Navrai Majhi – English Vinglish

BFF dances

Your best friends are all about naughty fun and the songs you pick need to reflect that. We picked out some that are evergreen and the rest are, well, easy to choreograph

Nachde Na Sare – Baar Baar Dekho 

Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiya – Student Of The Year 2

First Class – Kalank 

Bom Diggy Bom –  Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

Zingaat – Dadhak 

Groom’s solo

This one’s a bit tricky since most grooms find it hard to find a tune that matches their dancing skills to their emotions. But we managed to find a few that work for their style. 

Proper Patola – Badsaah 

Sweetheart hai – Kedarnath 

Badri ki Dulhania – Badrinath ki Dulhania

Nashe Di Chadh Gayi – Befikre

Coca Cola Tu – Luka Chuppi
