Q. I am trying to figure out the entertainment for my wedding functions. We will have a typical North Indian Wedding with Sangeet, Mehendi and Baraat. Should I get DJ for of those events? What are some other options besides hiring a DJ?
A. Dear Bride-to-be: Indian weddings tend to be week long festivities. As Indians, we are big on music, dance, and entertainment. While you would want to hire a DJ or band for your wedding reception, you do have other options for your pre-wedding functions:
1. Do you know anyone in your family who can play a dholak? For your Mehendi, you can get a group of your aunts together to sing traditional North Indian songs to the beats of dholak. It would make the occasion more festive and lively.
3. Thank God for iPod Playlists! You can very well create your own Mehendi and Sangeet Bollywood songs’ playlists. Here is a reference for you: Indian Wedding Music.
4. For your Baraat, you can have a combination of iPod playlists, live dhol player and bhangra dancers. The Bhangra dancers and dhol player will definitely infuse “masti” and get people dancing.
