Weddings earlier were serious affair with rigid rituals, songs to melt hearts, and emotional outbursts. They still are, but with a more relaxed atmosphere where families enjoys the rituals with music and dance.
This is reflected most in the Sangeet ceremony where all the close relatives and friends give dance performances. It is interesting to witness the elders swinging to the old wedding songs or couples dancing on romantic numbers. Even sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews give wedding dance performances. This is where choreographers for Sangeet come in.
