The Ultimate *Shaadi* Playlist: The Best Songs For All Your Wedding Festivities!

What do you think makes a perfect wedding? Good food- Checked. Wedding dress- Checked. Booze- Checked. But nothing makes or breaks a wedding like a great playlist for the countless pre and post-wedding festivities. However, shortlisting Bollywood songs for your wedding, mehendi, haldi or bridal entry can be the last thing on your mind, especially when you have tons of other things on priority.

To help you with this overwhelming and time-consuming task, here’s a comprehensive list of Hindi songs for weddings that assures everyone including your guests hit the dance floor.

For Mehendi

Planning to dance on the good ol’ Mehndi laga ke rakhna from DDLJ or Mehendi hai rachnewali from Zubeidaa? Well, we got a better plan! It’s not that any of these oldies are any boring, but they have been done to death at weddings in the past and may not surprise your audience anymore. Ditch them this time and groove to these latest numbers that are making it to the top of our mehendi playlist.

Swag Saha Nahi Jaye- Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi


If you love bhangra, you will absolutely love this dance number. The beats and the Punjabi vibes will help you bring out your bridal swag on your mehendi night.
