If it’s just a handful of you, plan it as a surprise in the middle of the sangeet for everyone else. Freeze midway in the dance and slay the challenge like a boss 👊🏼 (It’ll be soo fun to watch uncles do the waare there while you’re frozen😂)

#2 Savour the moment you tie the Knot

Freeze the moment when you get married, thats literally a moment you want to hold on to! Examples are everything – This South Indian wedding filmed by Eesam nailed the trend! The couple froze their moment of love for posterity quite literally. And everyone played along from their friends to the PanditJI learning new trends! P.S. We love the tamil wedding song from Two States in the background, perfect for the pious moment *goosebumps*

#3 Freeze on the Floor

Or make a game everyone plays for the cocktail, pick a song and freeze each time that comes on! Sorta like your own warped version of Dj wale babu – where you have to freeze the minue the Dj babu plays the freeze tune please! Examples are Everything – This idea is fun when its done by everyone! If you think that’s hard to coordinate, check out this wedding where 200 guests nailed the challenge together! Whoa!! This “epic” wedding shoot made waves online a few days back 😍

#4 Enter in style

If you’re filmy enough, ask your guests to freeze during your bridal entry, when you cascade towards BAE for the Jaimala and time stands still! Full on bollywood style! Go one up, and play looking at you by calvin harris while you do this! *Swoon* 💖
