Planning Guide: Everything You Should Know About Clubbing Your Mehendi And Sangeet Ceremonies

Indian weddings are known for their sacred customs and rituals. For the world, these weddings are a serious affair and are considered to be full of traditions that need to be followed but, they do not know that our weddings have a lot of elements of fun and frolic too. The mehendi function, that is one of the main functions for the bride and her family, is extremely happening and entertaining.

There is also sangeet, known as ‘guan’, that is yet another major function for both groom and bride’s family, wherein all close relatives and friends come together to celebrate the happiness of the couple by performing on various foot-tapping Bollywood numbers.

Yet another con of clubbing these two functions is that you may not be able to perform freely and with ease. Your dance movements may be restricted because of your mehendi. Also, a couple dance that needs you two to hold hands and come close, may not be possible as it can spoil your mehendi and his hands and sometimes even his clothes.
