Indian Wedding Ceremonies and Outfit Ideas
Here are the major Indian wedding ceremonies and outfit ideas for the occasions. Winter is the best season as one can dress up without the fear of the rising temperature and humidity in a country like India. One gets the freedom to choose from a number of dresses either from offline stores or even online from various sites such as Like A Diva. Though a wedding can be called a single big event of life, Indian weddings cannot be called a single day affair.
It starts with Haldi, followed by Mehendi, Sangeet and then finally the wedding followed by the reception. These events are all unique in themselves and demand a dress that would suit the occasion and at the same time keep you comfortable and carefree. This article will discuss about various dresses that one can wear this wedding season such as Indian suits, designer sharara suits, red salwar kameez etc. You may also consider buying these dresses such as salwar kameez online from various shopping sites.
Haldi in an Indian wedding marks the onset of the official wedding ceremonies. Covered with yellow ornate flowers and go to yellow colour outfit, one can point out the Haldi day wedding pictures easily. A crop-top paired with a long skirt with a floral print is the most bought Haldi outfit by the brides to be. In case you are looking for a dress to attend the ceremony, do go for bell sleeves, velvet kurtas, Indian suits or subtle gold toned sharara suits.
Mehendi marks the 2nd day of the official marriage ceremonies and the rich colour of henna is complemented by the subtle yet slightly darker colour outfits. Various shades of green such as Olive, Bottle or even ‘Mehendi green’ are trending. Brides go for a colourful and classy green Gota Patti ghaghra or designer sharara suits more often and in case you are looking for something subtle yet quirky do give a thought to the trending ornate green or turquoise suits that can be paired up with embellished dupattas this wedding season.
Of all the ceremonies, Sangeet calls for a glam look from the bride as well as the bridesmaids. If you are the one looking for a sangeet outfit this wedding season, why not try the metallic embellished colours this season providing you with a classy and sassy look? Refreshing and mesmerising wrap-up sarees, Lehengas, Anarkali suits or a red salwar kameez too are the most opted outfits this wedding season.
Of all the ceremonies, the wedding or D-day is the most awaited day. While some brides like to keep it simple and elegant, others go for ravishing bold colours both of which are equally admired and praised. In the case of a day wedding, opting for subtle pastel shades is trending this season while a night wedding calls for heavy, embellished bold colours such as maroon, golden, or even pure blood red attires. One can opt for either the ever-trending Maharani bridal lehenga and pair it with a heavy bold neck piece or even try out Nayantara’s fitted neck jewel wedding blouse with a self-work saree.
Some like to keep it simple and elegant with a Banarasi or Kanjivaram silk saree look while others opt for bold statement sequin sarees paired with an embellished or ornate blouse. Bold colours have so far worked wonders on the reception day but pastel, gold toned or organza sarees are the latest fashion trends of the season. Also, don’t forget to try the plain blingy bordered sarees too and pair them with the contrasting statement jewellery of your choice.
