Favourite 20 Tamil Bridal Entrance Songs

by Assessor

One of the unique parts about being the bride getting married in a traditional, Tamil Hindu ceremony is that you have two grand entrances. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Tamil Hindu weddings, the bride typically joins the ceremony in one outfit (usually a saree) and completes the ceremony in her second outfit. The brides first entrance is for the purification rituals and blessing of the Thali/Koorai (bridal saree ) after which, the bride leaves to change into her Koorai saree. It is after the bride returns in her Koorai that the groom ties the thali (See what we did there)

It never occurred to us how special this truly is until we brought along a non-Tamil friend with us to a family wedding. Having been her first Tamil Hindu wedding, she was amazed at pretty much everything, but the one thing that blew her mind was that the bride got two head turning entrances!

“She gets TWO entrances in DIFFERENT outfits? I’m definitely having a Tamil Ceremony!”

With having two entrances comes the job of picking two songs for each entrance. Some brides chose to let the Traditional Nadhaswaram and Thavil players carry on with the Mangalya Vadyam during their entrance, while others chose to have a specific song playing. Being a Tamil bride means you have more options than the classic ” Here Comes the Bride!”

For those brides who are looking to have songs played during their entrance, we at Tie • The • Thali have compiled a list of songs ranging from old classics to new compositions that we believe will highlight every brides arrival at a Hindu wedding! (PS: For those of you looking for wedding worthy songs for highlight reels, playlists etc. , make sure you check out our full wedding playlist: Ultimate Tamil Wedding Songs – Playlist )
