If you have ever been to a Punjabi wedding or get a chance to attend one, you are guaranteed two things - loads of dancing and gallons of drinking.

Punjabis know how to celebrate an event and make it a night to remember for everyone - whether it’s a roka ceremony or a big fat wedding.

Here are some of the things that happen at every Punjabi wedding.
