Whenever you attend any party or function, you see every kind of music playing in the background. Moreover, any wedding/engagement is incomplete without music or sangeet! From all the gaana bajanas and shor sharabas to ladies playing dholak and dancing and singing the traditional/cultural songs or geet, the sangeet is first one function which everyone loves attending.
So, if you want to make your sangeet a special one and to put some spice to it, Shaadimagic will provide you with some planning with fun filled activities! Make sure you fix the sangeet function a day or two before your wedding because some people from both bride and groom’s side cannot attend as they might be busy with the D-day shopping and other planning’s.
Besides singing and dancing, we have listed down few tips for you to make a big sangeet function at your place:
Dance floor Ideas
One can have a dance floor in the centre where all the low seating sofas are placed with cushions and bolsters. You can also make it a fun game by playing antakshri between bride and groom’s family. Including whistles to cheer your team by whistling loud can be a good idea!
Tambola as an Idea:
Everybody is familiar with this game, which is mostly played during family gatherings or Kitty parties. You can also twist the game a bit to make it more enjoyable for everybody. For this, instead of chits with number, you can have songs on it. If a song is there on chit, you have to dance on the song or sing. How cool the sangeet party will be then?

For the awards, you can include trophies, available in market at cheap prices, with some funky titles or some gift vouchers.
Photo booth Idea:
You can get more creative by having a special photo booth at the sangeet. This new trendy idea can be the most attractive thing for your sangeet ceremony. Your photographer will click the pictures of all the guests attending the function and get printed these lovely images in a collage or a sangeet album.

When we talk about music, it’s not only for your sangeet, but for the Baarat too. When the groom visits bride place on the wedding day with allthe band and baja, the baraatis are the one who dance like no one is watching you (we all must have experience this).
