The Sangeet

The Sangeet was unlike any function I've ever been to. I'm pretty sure all of New Delhi was invited :) It was luxurious and gorgeous and just such a GRAND party. Devina and my brother looked like a princeess and prince - full out. She was dressed in a beautiful white lengha and looked downright stunning. My brother was wearing a matching white achkin and just fit her perfectly. They looked regal to say the least.

 Sangeet means Music and it is the night days before the wedding meant for merriment, music, dancing and complete celebrating of the couple and the wedding to come. Just letting loose! Traditional sangeets generally are held at the home amongst the ladies singing and ladies but these days it is a Great excuse to have a big old bash at a hall. I've got a glimpse of the professional pics and they really did the events, esp the sangeet, justice. Here are a few that friends and family have shared. Enjoy! :)
