OFFBEAT SONGS FOR BRIDES WHO WANT TO GO VIRAL ON INSTAGRAM
Whether you want a minimum or a big fat celebration, be a minimalist or an OTT bride, the one thing that remains is the urge to hit a million views on your wedding reels, be the face of wedding pages, and revolutionize bridal trends as we know them.
Waltz in bridal dances, which thankfully, is no longer restricted to the traditional sangeet. Thanks, Shivangi Bafna. Your wedding had more dances than guests, and we’re not complaining. It definitely gave us some inspiration for good. With weddings getting more personalized as per the couple’s preferences (read the bride’s), there’s room for so much creativity, personality, drama, and va va voom.
Here’s a low-down of some songs for every bride, every mood, and every occasion.
Kick-starting your wedding celebrations can often be sentimental. Why not seal the moment with a father-daughter dance on I feel good from Anjana-Anjani and a little welcome for your groom-to-be on aaja re more saiyyan, Coke Studio? If you’re not the emo kind, bring a slice of your personality to the stage with phatte tak nachna and give your inlaws a taste of the storm they’re blissfully about to embrace. And if you really wanna talk trends, balaam thanedar with big black aviators is a fail-safe.
A Bollywood-buff bride deserves her sajna ji vaari vaari moment for the solo. For the classic, demure one, naino wale ne from Padmavat and main to piya se naina lada aayi re from Coke Studio are elegant choices. Of course, your friends are gonna tell your love story to the world, let it be with humne suna hai, tumne jeevan saathi chuna hai and join them at the end. You might just start a trend with this one, who knows!
And, when Mr groom comes to the floor, we say face-off. Ladki kyu from Hum Tum is just a preview of your life ahead, thanks to the banter. Sapne me milta hai is also a suggestion if you just can’t stop flirting with your partner. Later, when you wanna get up, close and personal, a medley of shukran allah and adhura lafz is the way to romance.
Now that you have no filter, zero annoying relatives and at least three shots of vodka in you, it’s time to get steamy. Yes, we’re going down and dirty with mayya mayya and ooh la la. Want to show off your moves just a tad more? Aga bai with its signature belly steps is the way to go. And, bring that party home with some good ol’ UP Bihar lootne. Insta would love to make a tipsy bride trending!
Before you’re doused in tubs of haldi, make sure to shake a leg with your parents dearest on aaya lariye, Coke Studio, and with your girlfriends on pardesiya, yeh sach hai piya. And when you’re drenched in the goodness of haldi and fragrant flowers, grab your main man and groove to chunnari chunnari. For a surprise performance for him, the remix version of bin tere sanam mar mitenge hum is an offbeat pick, sure to catch him off-guard. Vibrant hues and dancing to the lost melodies can do wonders for your grid.
Wanna follow a trend? Sajna, tere liye sajna, sensationalised by the likes of Karishma Tanna and influencer Meghna Chandwani is always a good idea. Should you want to make a statement of your own, ab kya kare dil deewana can be the next it-bridal song. And if the oldworld charm is what entices you, laal ishq and ek dil, ek jaan are Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s melodies that lend themselves to the bridal regalia. Finally, if you want to be a sassy 90s bride in 2023, thoda sa pagla, thoda siyana is your track.
