The entry of the bride is something that everybody awaits and looks forward to, almost as much as the groom. As the bride enters, all eyes are upon her, so her entrance must be spectacular. Generally, her friends and female cousins accompany the bride as she enters the wedding pandal. However, these days her brothers may also accompany the bride under a sheet of flowers, like a princess.
For those who want to keep it elegant and simple, the bride entering with her father looks extremely graceful and is sure to bring a tear to your eyes. And then there are brides who want to make a mind-blowing entrance and enter with a bang. There are brides who have entered on a horse, on a bike, rickshaw, dune buggy and even dancing while entering with dhol wallas! What all these brides have in common is that they have all entered to the accompaniment of songs and music.
The music that should accompany the bride’s entrance should be as amazing as her entrance, and this is something that you just cannot leave for the DJ. There are so many upbeat Bollywood wedding songs for your wedding functions but for your bridal entry, here are a few tracks that are sure to rock this wedding season. You can make your choice from any of these, depending on the kind of entry you are planning to make.
