For Gujaratis, the dandia raas night (or sanji) is a non-religious celebration that's part of each bride and grooms journey to getting married. I happen to be one of the few people I know who is fairly clueless about garba steps and haven't really been to garba in years. I'd be the one person at our dandia raas night who doesn't know what she's doing. I was thinking because it's not religious and therefore not necessary, maybe we would skip it. I could put the money we'd save in renting a hall, booking someone to play music, decorations, snacks, dandia, etc into a mehndi night or into our reception.
Have any of you done this? Does this sound like a bad idea?
