The haldi ceremony in an Indian wedding has a lot of significance. While haldi is applied to both the bride and the groom for a number of auspicious reasons, this ceremony is also a chance for all the young and old of the family to come together and have a gala time. And while we are talking about fun times, how can marriage songs played for haldi be left behind? So, here’s a list of haldi songs for you to download and enjoy during the ceremony:
1. Navrai Majhi - English Vinglish
This old marathi haldi song got a fresh Bollywood makeover when Sridevi shook a leg in English Vinglish on this number! Perfect to be played for the bride’s haldi, Navrai Majhi is one song that will get everyone grooving.

While this one is quite an old Bollywood Haldi song, it is still very popularly played as a marriage song by the bride’s side during the ceremony.
