The actual process of wedding starts with arrival of groom with the barat at the marriage venue. This may be the house of the bride or any other designated place. So, this moment is quite important and it should be fun filled and memorable for the groom as well as the complete guests.
While many things and ritual happens when the groom enters the marriage venue, the songs form an important part of that.

The friends as well as other members of barat party find no bind on their joy when they dance to their best on the songs like “aaj mere yaar ki shaddi hai”. The sound of various musical instruments reaches the skies and the members of bride party get ready with garlands in their hands to welcome the barat. Thus, the wedding bands give the anticipation to other party.
As per the Indian tradition, the women members of bride party sing very romantic and heart touching songs in grand welcome of the groom and his men. The women urge father, brother, uncles, grandparents and other family members of the bride party to take dhoti, paan-beera (beetal leaves mixed with masalas) and welcome the groom, his father and other member with great humbleness and pride.
