This is a very important part that needs to be given due consideration. You must make the song selection with utmost care… one aspect is that the song chosen should go well with the person going to dance for the song, another is that the song selection should not be monotonous. To make the show lively enough to grab the attention of the guests during entire time, there must be a variety in the songs. It can be a mix of slow songs and some peppy numbers, songs describing the excitement of the bride and groom and may be some emotional songs where the bride and her mother experience the pangs of separation from each other, some folk songs dedicated to marriage and bride and some love songs. To give more life to the show, don’t forget to add some top hindi dance numbers. The song chosen for the Bride and Groom should not preferably be a fast number. It should have a special meaning for the happy couple and should convey to the guests the unique bond they share.
Other ideas to make the show more variable and exciting are, a medley of songs rather than someone dancing on one full song, a dance parody that can also be based on a theme, a dandiya dance, a “diya” dance (carrying battery operated candles), a song sung by some ladies in the family (this can also include some teasing either for all couples in your family or for your “samdhi”) or may be a small skit.
The show should be a mix of solo dance performances, kids dance, couple dances, ladies group dance, girls and boys group dances, couple dances, and may be one performance where the entire family comes on the stage.
