Sangeet means music, and is a pre-wedding celebratory function for Punjabi(s) and North Indians though now getting popular with the South Indians too.
It is traditionally a ladies musical party since the ladies who attend the function in colorful finery, sing and dance the night away. All of them at the function looked in a robust mood and all dressed up in grand fashion.
The food was great. In fact it was the first time I attended one and it was great to have witnessed the traditional celebration.
The groom presented his bride with a bouquet of flowers and just before he entered the hall, there was fireworks on display.
What a night it was!
Well, I got to wear the saree after a long time, haha. My mom was thrilled. She is always complaining that my sister and I don’t wear it as often as she would like us to. I had picked out a Malayali sari to wear but she asked me to wear something colorful and grand since that was how the guests would dress for a Sangeet. I was glad I followed her advice because when I got there, everyone was all dolled up and colorfully attired.
The bride looked absolutely gorgeous. Blessings to the couple on their auspicious occasion.
