The rituals and customs of an Anand Karaj (Sikh wedding ceremony) are very different from a Kalyanam (Tamil wedding). Similarly, a Maharashtrian wedding and a Bengali wedding are not alike. But the common thread that is conspicuous in any desi Shaadi, is dancing. Whether it is coordinated Bollywood style dancing at the sangeet, grooving to the dhol during the baraat or drunk dancing to the tunes of the DJ at the cocktail, any celebration is incomplete without it.
And if it is a Sikh wedding, there’s got to be bhangra. Which happened with a twist at the engagement ceremony of Simer and Simmi. Instead of the couple making an entry, the guests made a quite a splash by dancing their hearts out. Twitter user @SinghLions shared a video of the fun bhangra entry.

Isn’t this a great way to enter a party? We can’t wait to try it out the next time a friend or cousin gets married. Would you do it too?
