We always spend most of our time discovering gorgeous outfits, accessories, kind of makeup and hairdo to match the style you have opted for if you are attending a wedding. The only issue is that wedding dress codes can vary wildly depending on the venue, so you need options, from heavier lehengas for the sister of the bride, to dhoti capes for a bridesmaid and pretty saris that a wedding guest can wear.
We have picked the best outfits you can wear to every type of wedding function – from lighter outfits for a baraat to what the sister of the bride can wear to the day wedding ceremony. We’ve even picked our favorites for the Mehendi event, Puja, Cocktail party & Reception!
Baraat: We all know baraat is one of the most highly anticipated moments of any Indian wedding, where the groom and his friends will be all set to make an impactful entry, where bride’s sisters and close female friends play important roles as well. They may be dressed up in a color that coordinates with bride’s dress. Unlike a western wedding, it’s not necessary for all the bridesmaids to be dressed up in similar dresses. They may opt for same colour with different dresses or they may opt for the same dress in different colours. But we believe in Comfort over Style after all dancing is everything during baraat. You can go for hand embroidered anakarlis, or sharara suits to help you dancing.
Haldi: One of the most colorful event of a wedding is Haldi. For Haldi ceremony, you can choose to go for light lehengas, kurtis, anarkalis, gowns, Indo-western outfits as well. You can team up your outfit with some pretty floral jewelries too! You also can play around with colours and make it more fun. Plan it up, set a theme, rock and roll.
Mehendi: Most fun, entertainment is all you can expect from mehendi. Friends and family all together having a good time when the bride is getting ready to marry the love of her life. Some chit-chat, posing to the camera with great style cause no harm. You can go for heavy embroidered blouse with a palazzo which gives you an classic look or Golden metallic lehenga for the authentic vibe or embroidered blouse with classic dhoti pants to rock the show.
Wedding: What to wear to a wedding day! Despite of having all good outfits, we will be busy thinking as to what to wear to The event to make an impactful entry. Here we go, Classic black lehenga with crystal embellishments and with a smoking hot blouse with hand embroidered dupatta is all you need to grab the attention while a banarasi lehenga is in the competition too. Or an ivory sari with silver embroidery lehenga saree is too an option!
Reception/Cocktail party: Time to have some fun! Your cocktail and reception events will be the times when you can literally let your hair down, give your heavy lehengas a miss and opt for some stylish silhouettes and edgy designs. They are the perfect occasions to opt for stunning cocktail dresses & reception gowns to dance your night away. There are more options out there like an organza saree for a royal look, a classy red gown to steal the show or if you are looking for statement, then had embroidered lehenga shown here is the answer for it.
