Best Songs For Indian Wedding Videos, Trailers And Album Editing: From Old Classics To New-Age Hits

The concept of wedding trailers and cinematic videos in India has reached to a completely different level. In recent years, most couples have demanded a cinematic wedding film from their photography team. The concept of compiling the entire wedding into a cinematic video of 30 to 60 seconds is what every couple eagerly waits for after their marriage. From paying huge amount of money for cinematic wedding films to sharing wedding videos on different social media platforms, the fever for wedding trailers has taken over the wedding photography business in Indian weddings completely.

However, one of the key elements of a wedding film is the songs chosen by the video editors and producers for the video. Therefore, choosing the right songs per your clients' tastes and demands is crucial. Otherwise, it could turn out to be random slow-motioned clips stuffed together on a song that doesn’t match the vibe.

It’s not a cakewalk to choose the right songs for the bride’s entry, emotional vidaai moments, and couple’s performance, which is why song selection is often called the backbone of a wedding film. Thus, we have compiled a series of famous songs, including evergreen classics and soulful hits of recent times, that can enhance the beauty of a wedding film ten folds.
