Best End of Ceremony Songs for Indian Weddings (Recessional)

One of the most overlooked moments when Indian wedding planning is once the wedding ceremony is over. Normally couples in traditional Indian weddings used to pose for 100 pictures in their mandap and then awkwardly bounce to go change for their reception.


However now couples from all cultures think about the best wedding recessional songs to play as this is basically how they walk down the aisle post marriage.





Usually we think about couples in Western weddings only walking down the aisle and into the decked out luxury car with the "Just married" decal but in modern Indian weddings music is also a new star of the show.
