Aaya Laariye (Gurmukhi: ਆਇਆ ਲਾੜੀਏ, Shahmukhi, Shahmukhi: آیا لاڑیے) "Oh, bride, he came", is a traditional Punjabi bridal song.

It describes typical scenes of a Punjabi marriage: the groom wearing a headpiece called "sihra", the bride and friends putting on a jeweled adornment called the "jhoomar", the bride's wreath adorned with flower buds, the betrothal gift called the "shagan", a wind instrument called the "shehnai", et cetera.

The music is also traditional, but arranged for Coke Studio by the Pakistani band Strings, under the direction of the composer Shuja Haider.

The singers are the actress and singer Meesha Shafi, who has become a renowned interpreter of Punjabi songs, and the playback singer Naeem Abbas Rufi, who made his debut as a featured artist with this song in Coke Studio season 9.
