Jaggo at Punjabi Weddings

Jaggo at Punjabi weddings is a beloved pre-wedding ceremony, tradition in Punjabi weddings. Centuries ago before invitation stationary and electricity, the bride and groom’s relatives would walk through the village, carrying pots on their heads with oil candles inside, singing songs to inform and invite the villagers to the wedding.

Jaggo literally translates to “wake-up!”

Today it’s a pre-wedding celebration, much like a mehndi or sangeet, full of song, dance, fun and laughter!
