It’s that time of the year again. When everybody around you is getting married and your Facebook timeline is flooded with wedding photos. Oh, and let’s not forget how everybody will now gang up to give you sheepish grins and utter, ‘you’re next’. Wedding season is definitely a time when you’re at a loss for words and clothes. Unfortunately, there’s little you can do about everything else. But when it comes to your wedding guest wardrobe, we can be of help. We assure you we’d love for you to be well put-together when you’re attending your bestie’s mehendi or your cousin’s engagement. Which is why, here are some Indian wedding outfit ideas for guests. You can sport these ensembles not just on the wedding day but also on pre-wedding occasions. Check out what we’ve curated.
The Mehendi Outfit
Tired of wearing lehengas and suits? Well, then this is THE outfit to sport right now. Wear an co-ord set and layer it with a contrasting ethnic shrug to steal everyone’s thunder. This is a great pick for day wear, so we’re suggesting you wear it to a mehendi or haldi ceremony. Complete the look with ethnic jewellery, a blingy bag or minaudière, and shoes, and you’re good to go.
The Cocktail Look
Ditch the A-line silhouette or even the the done and dusted gowns for a dhoti skirt and crop top set. Now the beauty of a dhoti skirt is that it flatters most body types. We recommend you choose a set with pieces that either contrast each other or are coordinated. You can also wear a kamarbandh with this ensemble to make it interesting. Pro Tip: Low waists are out of fashion, so wear this skirt exactly at the waistline.
An Engagement Ensemble
When it comes to Indian weddings, suits are the easiest to wear. But if you’re looking to make your outfit stand out, wear one in an unusual colour like opal or mint green. An Indian outfit is best with traditional work, so you can try a suit with muted zardozi or gota patti work. Ditch flared pants for a straight cut piece, and we bet you’ll be all set to shine.
