Sangeet & Mehendi

7:00 PM - 10:00 PM, April 5, 2024

Calatea, Cala Luna Boutique Hotel

Join us for dinner, drinks and a pre-wedding celebration with an evening of mehndi(henna), dancing, music and merriment to celebrate the couple.

Traditionally, a sangeet spanned up to ten days before the wedding, but now it's a one-night celebration filled with joy and happiness for the couple. Similar to a rehearsal dinner or welcome party, it takes place the night before the wedding, involving close friends and family to kick off the wedding weekend. What sets a sangeet apart is its five key elements: dance performances, food, drinks, henna, and a dance floor for everyone.

Close friends and relatives create choreographed dance routines for the couple, and sometimes, the couple surprise their guests with performances. The dance floor is always lively during a sangeet!

Div & Ryan would love to see their friends and family perform at the sangeet.

  • WHEN: Calatea, Cala Luna Boutique Hotel
  • WHERE: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • ATTIRE: Indian attire is encouraged (more info here)
