If you're one of those brides who's doing a lot of DIY stuff ( Read Decor and Food) and organising her own mehendi and sangeet, then this one's gonna be a big help! A lot of us don't usually hire a DJ for the smaller, more intimate functions like the mehendi and the haldi, so "What do I play on my iPod dock?" is a big question. Without further ado, here are some old and new songs you can blindly download and play - some old and some new, but all perfect for the bride who wants it wholesome.
The Cult Song : Mehendi Laga ke Rakhna, DDLJ
This one's a golden oldie but it will make everyone smile. No mehendi is complete without playing this iconic track from the every favourite DDLJ, and this one has got to be on your playlist!
Soulful Number: Kabira Encore, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
Yes, that's what the alternate version which was filmed during Kalki's wedding in the movie is called, and it is one of the best wedding or mehendi songs to come out in a long time!
Get the Family Dancing: Baari Barsi, Band Baaja Baraat
Another perfect traditional song but packed with a punch - this one's our eternal favourite!
The Fun Starter: Rola Pe Gaya, Patiala House
This is the 'modern' version of the song above, with Hard Kaur rapping to it! Pretty good fun.
The Punjabi 'Tappe': Madhorama Pencha, Monsoon Wedding
A folk song with catchy beats, this one is also another perfect number for the Mehendi - get all your BFF's to swing.
The Emo Song: Soni Banno, Kal Ho Na Ho
This one is a typical mehendi-haldi song with the shehnai. Get the version without the sad part in the middle preferably!
Old Folk : Mehendi ni Mehendi, Harshdeep Kaur
Another oldie, but one that fits Indian weddings perfectly! Play it to set the initial mood, and then move on to faster numbers!
After these slowish numbers, time to move on to the faster tracks!
Get your girls on the floor : London Thumakda
Can it get better than this?This one song is enough to get everyone up and dancing, plus - there are so many DJ-approved versions too.
Fun Fun & Fun : Punjabi Wedding Song , Hasee Toh Phasee
The Bride Dancing: Banno Tera Swagger, Tanu Weds Manu Returns
The ultimate new anthem for the weddings, this one is also perfect to set the mood during your Mehendi and make you look like #girlboss.
Sweet & Peppy: Gal Mithi Mithi Bol, Aisha
Any Punjabi wedding Mehendi is incomplete without playing this song! Plus how cool is it to dance to this song wearing sunglasses!
Melodious: Navrai Majhi, English Vinglish
You might not recognise this by name, but once you play it, you'll remember! Another festive song for a Mehendi, one with Marathi roots!
Attitude huh: Gulaabo, Shaandaar
More of a Bachelorette song, this one is also a mood-setter for the Mehendi!
Everyones favourite: Chittiyan Kalaiyaan, Roy
Another peppy number that's bound to get everyone dancing... that too with the same steps, but honestly, this one is too good for mehendi.
Unusual but fun: Daingad Daingad, Humpty Sharma ki Dulhaniya
Another rustic song in which you can involve the whole family to come and shake a leg just like the video! How cute will that be!
Genda Phool, Dilli 6
If you're looking for something more upbeat, then this one will do the trick! A must-have in the Mehendi playlist!
Romantic : Manwa Laage, Happy New Year
Sure, this song doesn't really have a Mehendi ceremony in the video, but it still makes for a good Mehendi song!
Brings back memories: Bole Chudiyan, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum
This is another one that's a hit with the audience! We bet there'll be girls who know every step to this one!
Have a song you think will fit this bill, let us know!!
