Wedding Songs Post! In Honor of My Cousin Getting Engaged

Have I mentioned that we have been short staffed at work due to a killer flu that is making it’s way through the employees for the past TWO WEEKS???  Anyway, I don’t always have as much time to write a post in the middle of the day as I could wish.  So I am going to make up for that with a quick fun songs post.

Clearly I am a witch.  I mentioned in my Veere Di Wedding review that all 3 of my cousins might get engaged soon, and here is the first domino down, my Aunt just emailed the family that my cousin’s boyfriend proposed.  And the wedding is next summer.  Wonderful news, very happy for her, etc. etc.

(Mubarak!  From me and Anil Kapoor!)


But this isn’t a place to talk about touching family news, this is a place for me to be lighthearted.  And, from the lighthearted side of things, there is a year to get this wedding right.  So let me offer some suggestions!  For my aunt/cousin, or anyone else who might be planning a large wedding.

(Ranveer and Dips, if you happen to be thinking about weddings, not saying you are, but if you are, you could read this post.  No pressure)


There is the possibility of the dance teacher and massive coordinated dance number (not including me, I gave them the idea, that’s good enough, I’m not dancing).


Also, surprise guests reignating old flames, that’s always fun!  Try to arrange that!



(But skip the champagne spray, I always suspected it was more sticky and icky rather than joyful)


Allow plenty of time for complex hidden emotions to be expressed through lengthy song sequences.



Obviously coordinated outfits for the guests are a must.  Again, excepting myself from this for giving the idea.  I will be Karisma, all standing out by being different from the back-up dancers.


Turbans!  All the male guests should have to wear turbans!


Also, sword fights with huge vegetables.


If possible, try to avoid having a total downer whiney guest who goes on and on about their broken heart.


Also try to avoid horrible ear worm nonsense songs.


Also try to avoid sad and unsafe fire play.


But most of all, DO try to get Shahrukh to come for the entertainment.


Or time machine in young Amitabh, I want to give you options.


In a pinch, if you can get neither Shahrukh or Young Amitabh, I will accept Madhuri doing a dance number.


There!  The Perfect Wedding!  Just follow my rules, and it will all be wonderful.  Oh, and also try to have a central couple that is in love with each other.  I suppose, technically, that is the most important part, you can dump all the rest.



UPDATE: A special add, just for Claudia as a thank you for always posting links in her discussion boards, “Raula”!

  1. I was just listening to a fun and catchy Assamese song (I have no clue what it is about) But it sounds like it would be well suited for a party/celebratory environment


    • Good point! I was trying not to overdose on Shahrukh. But I will put it in, just for you 🙂

      • Soooo sweet 🙂 I really love Raula because of the ‘mixed’ marriage…the way all of them irrespective their roots, enjoyed this celebration which wasn’t a ‘big thing’ in terms of festivity but a healthy big thing for groom and bride and their families (& friends). It was a very nice counterpoint to the ‘grand’ marriage Harry ‘crashed’ in Mumbai.


  2. “If possible, try to avoid having a total downer whiney guest who goes on and on about their broken heart.” Love it! What a great song for such an annoying but necessary plot point.


    • Ranbir is just the worst in that moment! I know his heart is breaking, but it’s Anushka’s wedding day! It’s supposed to be the happiest day of her life, and he is ruining it.
