Wedding Sangeet | #AakanshaKaRaj | Wedding Memories

Hi Folks,

As promised, here are the pictures from my Wedding Sangeet. But first…

For those who don’t know about the Indian Wedding Ceremony called Sangeet; it is a gathering where family and friends of the coupleΒ come together to sing and dance.

Sangeet itself means music and since India is highly influenced by music & dance (blame it on the Indian Cinema), a wedding is incomplete without having a night full of festivities where the near and dear ones (of the bride & groom) get together and dance the night away!

Of late, the trend has been a tad bit fancy. Families who can splurge end up calling famous (& talented, of course) artists or bands or DJs to set the party on fire. Since ours was a #BigFatWedding, we had all three for every single ceremony. We kinda believe in…

GO BIG OR GO HOME!

#GuiltyAsCharged !!!

DECOR

I trust you know by now that my entire wedding was based on a travel theme and every single ceremony had a city as it’s central theme. Decor and outfit guide for guests was decided basis this.

Sangeet had the theme of ROYAL RAJASTHAN.
