Asian shaadi celebrations would involve the entertainment activities from the family members and also from professionals of different fields.
The wedding celebrations last for more than one week and each day some or the other entertainment programs are done to entertain the guests and the family members. Various art forms are made to perform and this is a symbol of the culture of different communities.

These two days are chosen for most entertainment programs as it is on these days that most number visitors turn up to wish the couples. The most preferred Indian shaadi entertainment is music.

Those people who are ready to spend more would bring in some actors or actresses for some performance.
The next most proffered entertainment activity during an South asian shaadi is magic shows.
