Glamour, great food, customs and a bunch of traditional ceremonies- this is what a big fat Indian wedding is all about. If you are lucky to be going to an Indian wedding, then you must take good care of your dressing and outfit, the rest will be taken care of on its own! Indian weddings come with great pomp and show, therefore the outfits need to be glittery yet sophisticated. Here is our top pick on how to dress for Indian weddings so that the shutterbugs follow you wherever you go!
As a general thumb rule, avoid drab colors like black and white for Indian weddings. Instead pick chirpy and lively colors like pink, green, maroon or peach. Save the color red for the bride as it may look too tawdry on a guest. Opt for dresses done with thread work, glitters and shining stones which can make your outfit look even more eye-catchy.
When we are talking about Indian weddings, what can be better than a saree! A saree is apt for all types of occasions, thanks to the various designs and prints available. When you are going to be a part of an Indian wedding, consider choosing pink, peach and cream colors for the saree. Accomplish with some great eye makeup and minimal jewelry.
Yet another Indian attire that works like a charm! Lehenga choli with dupatta is a 3-set dress that includes a long skirt, a figure hugging blouse and a long dupatta. Opt for classy Gota, phulkari and zari work lehenga. Choose sequined and embroidered blouse and dupatta and finally complete your look with the perfect makeup!
This is yet another version of the traditional lehenga choli twisted with the touch of modernity and elegance. Crop tops suit best to those who want to go for something simple yet classy. Team it up with a long floral skirt and you are done for the day! A multi-tasking fashion statement that can literally make the onlookers go gaga over you!
If you want to add a twist to your regular dressing type, choose a long sequined jacket and pair it up with cigarette pants. If you are not so keen about spangled work on the jacket, go for floral ones that should give you the required feminine look. Cigarette pants can embellish your overall look for the better!
When you are not particularly sure of what you want to pick for the night, go for something that you can carry off well. A kurti never goes wrong for that matter! But simple salwar or tights under kurti are passé. Go for a lehenga underneath. A long kurti would do the job while a contrast colored lehenga adds the desired glamour to the outfit.
There are possibly so many other choices that you can stock up on. While dress and outfits make you the center of attraction in an Indian wedding, do not forget to pay attention to your makeup, jewelry and footwear. Pair these up together and create your glowing look for the next wedding season!
