As the wedding season is around the corner everybody is trying to look their best in the wedding. In this age of picture perfect instagram posts, where a photograph indeed says a thousand words, it is essential to level up your style game. This becomes more crucial when you are the sister of the groom or bride. Indian wedding ceremonies are no less than an individual festival so you obviously require multiple outfits. Since these events will happen once in a blue moon therefore here are some outfit ideas for you to wear in different wedding rituals:
Sangeet and Mehandi
The pre-wedding function kicks off with sangeet and mehandi, which are usually combined together. These events are filled with vibrant colours, enjoyable music and a good deal of dance. Along with being stylish, you must feel completely at ease while showing your best moves during sangeet. You won’t let your dance unfinished only because of an uncomfortable outfit. It will be good to avoid long sleeve clothes as they might be ruined while applying mehandi or henna. Outfits like patiala suits and salwar kurta along with chunky jewelry, including earrings, bangles and mangtika, are good options. You can also twirl in a long skirt with a crop top during sangeet. Pearl necklace with simple earrings will make this outfit dazzling. Bangles or bracelets will also enhance your overall look.
Long kurta paired with palazzo will ramp up your style quotient. A bright color always goes well with the vibe of this event. Keep the jewelry subdued with this bright outfit.
You can also take some inspiration from Bollywood. Various movies showcase their own unique style of patiala suits.
Haldi is another pre-wedding ceremony performed in the morning of the big day. Haldi, aka turmeric, is applied to both bride and groom. Yellow is inarguably the colour of this event. You can choose a yellow sharara or gharara for a gorgeous look. These pieces are reminiscent of ancient Indian culture. Sharara was introduced in the Indian subcontinent by Mughals while gharara belongs to the Lucknowi heritage. Some light jewelry with minimal details will work here.
Being the sister of the bride or groom, you,ve got to look impressive on this day. Sarees are flawless options for the wedding. From ruffles to belted silhouettes, options are varied. You only need to find out the style that works best for you. Pair your saree with heavy gold or silver jewelry to remain on top of your style game.
This is the final function of the whole wedding ceremony. Reception is more like a grand party where newly weds come in public for the very first time. It is usually held by the groom's family. Bride also makes acquaintances with the relatives from the groom's side. Slinky gowns would be an ideal piece of clothing for this event. Not only will they add an oomph to your style but also you will look charming wearing it. You can wear simple studs and let the gown do it's talking.
If you want to experiment with your style, jumpsuits are the way to go. These are comfortable yet stylish outfits. You will be at ease while walking in these. Hoops with a chain necklace will work well with this outfit.
These outfits and jewelry ideas will work best for you when you wear everything with a big bright smile!
