Sita Kalyana Vaibhogame is one of the most popular Carnatic Thyagaraja Kriti composed by Shri Tyaagaraaja Swami in Raga Shankaraabharanam (Sankarabharanam).
'Seetha kalyana vaibogame' is generally sung in Indian marriages. The song starts with 'Sita kalyana vaibogame' means praising the Rama Seetha wedding.
When Lord Hanuman sees Seetha, he performs the Seetha Rama wedding in his heart and sings this song.

Meaning: from "Compositions of Tyagaraja" by TK Govinda Rao:

How grand and imposing the wedding of SIta is! Praised by AnjanEya, this Hero of countless exploits, having the sun and the moon as His eyes, and possessing a frame of ravishing beauty is an unfailing Protector of His devotees and Bestower of prosperity and Beatitude, which is a part of His LIlas. He causes terror in the minds of RAkshasas. His calmness and composure reveal Him as one who has no more desires to be fulfilled. Sporting a radiant blue hue, He is the source of Bliss for the world. Resider of AyOdhya, He is the Prop of the entire world. A peerless warrior in battles, He is beyond the ken of men of arrogance and haughtiness. He is tall and courageous, reminding one of the great Mount MEru. He is the Hero figuring in the Scriptures. With an unmatched form, He is the mainstay of His devotees, whose sins He wipes out graciously. Celebrated by Lord Siva in song and music, He is the raft enabling deserving mortals to cross the ocean of SamsAra. That is the aim of His incarnation in the solar race, He whom TyAgarAja worships.
