Indian inspiration #2

Thanks for the comments on saris; I will have a look in the market at the weekend and see what I can find :)

Thinking back to Nidhi's wedding made me remember the absolute best thing about it.... a couple of days before the wedding is the Sangeet, which seems to be nothing more than a big party to get everyone in the mood. There's lots of dancing and lots of food & booze. There are two things about the Sangeet that would be awesome at our wedding:
1. I really want to have a 'getting everyone in the mood' party. How much fun?
2. During the party, the friends, family and finally the couple themselves tell the story of their relationship through a series of seriously fun choreographed and rehearsed Bollywood dances. So all the brides school friends did a dance, then the cousins, the groom's siblings etc etc. None of them lasted more than a couple of minutes, but they had all rehearsed them and it was AMAZING. Everyone dancing and singing (or lip-synching!) together. So much love in that room!
Now all I have to do is convince all our cynical London friends that they want to express their happiness in our wedding through the medium of dance. Hmmmm.

I'd do dance to show my enthusiasm. But I'm probably in the minority.

How fun!
