The ultimate mehndi soundtrack


Maha Amin April 13, 2010

KARACHI: Everyone wants their wedding to be perfect.

Every detail of a wedding is planned out in advance, the playlist for the mehndi is thought, discussed, pondered over, revised, altered, finalised and even then something always goes wrong.

That is why planning for a wedding begins a year in advance. The playlist is one of the most important aspects of the mehndi ceremony and is reworked repeatedly until it is just right. One may think the playlist is not that complicated - after all, it is just a bunch of songs people feel like dancing to. But the list makes the party! It has to set the mood, otherwise you’ll be stuck listening to Sukhbir all night.
