One of the most popular pre-wedding functions, the Sangeet ceremony is an opulent celebration of the meeting and mixing of two families in the much awaited union of their beloved children. Although more visible and commercialized in north and central Indian weddings, the sangeet events are a class of their own in Tamil Matrimony. It offers immense respite from the hassles and hectic wedding preparations. All the women of the family come together well in advance and carry spoons and dholaks (percussive instruments), surround the beaming bride and belt out traditional and popular wedding songs.
The subjects of the thumping songs vary from daily life of girls to teasing the coy bride. Some songs also speak of the parents’ pain while sending their beloved daughter to her new house.
- Creating new ideas: The sky is the limit while planning a sangeet event. You have no set rules and order in this regard. Here’s a scope of pouring out all the bridal dreams you’ve cultivated thus far. You have the leverage to go overboard if you have a proper, permissive budget. The dress you choose for your sangeet is definitely one of the best in the bridal trousseau. It comes second only to the opulent wedding ensemble. However, unlike the wedding dress, you are free to experiment with several designs and styles. The bride can choose to adorn an ensemble instead of a sari or lehenga. Even if she wears a lehenga or a dress as opulent as that, she can go with any design, cut or color.
- The dress variation: There are leading designers designing some modern and funky lehengas that enable you to turn up the looks and glam quotient. It will still allow you adequate comfort and you can dance sans worrying. There’s the groom and his gentlemen brigade turning out in kurta pajamas or the latest indo-western dresses like kurtas with dhoti pants. You can also wear a Nehru jacket or waistcoat over it.
- Induce games: Apart from the loud songs and dancing, your sangeet ceremony in Tamil Matrimony might include interactive games like riddles and karaoke. You can arrange award-like functions where they laud you for your performances. There’s enough room to get creative with the snacks and cocktails. You can hire a professional bartender to entertain invitees with his special antics. You can induce further competition between respective groups of the bride and groom. These are Guess Who and tug of war. You can also be very innovative with the modern sangeet event’s theme. It can be your Tamil film night, magic theme or princess dream. Some folks also go for disco night or casino night.
- Getting your basics right: Event management firms can look after the entire event. It starts from selecting the perfect setting to selecting the best choreographer. They can also arrange celebs for participating in performances.
The professionals manage each detail from song to food selection, from photography to lighting. All you have to do is show up for the wedding and make yourselves the star of the show.
