Choosing the perfect outfit for Indian weddings is hard. The additional unique customs and rituals based on the religious or cultural elements of the functions make following the dress-code a whole ordeal. Don’t worry, we at Nilibar Ludhiana are here to pass down 60+ years of Indian fashion wisdom to you. Here are 5 tips to keep in mind while choosing an Indian outfit for the 2021 wedding season or the next ceremony you’re invited to –
1. Following the Theme is Key
Most functions have a thematic element to them so keep that in mind. There might be several functions that you will attend so strategically you’re your looks per the theme.
These yellow lehengas with floral embroidery are perfect for the Haldi ceremony. The embroidery gives them a traditional elegance which is amplified by the contrasting color palette of magenta and bottle green.
These green lehengas with short sleeves are perfect for a Mehendi ceremony as they don’t restrict movement but make the process of henna application on your hands and arms smooth.
2. Don’t Forget the Dupatta
A Dupatta is often necessary in order to cover your head for certain rituals. Make sure your outfit has this pretty wedding essential.
Light-weight dupattas are great all year round, but especially as summer approaches. The embroidery and sequin embellishment on the dupattas makes them special.
You honestly can’t go wrong with either a contrasting or a monotone dupatta.
3. Go for Auspicious colors
In some Indian religions wearing black or white outfits is considered inauspicious. So, do your research and choose happy colors. Pro tip: Pink will always make you glow!
Some auspicious hues include, emerald-green and pink for Muslims, blue and orange for Sikhs, red for Hindus, and White for Christians.
4. Comfort is Stylish
It’s crucial to breathe and move around freely. Functions are long and your outfit determines how you feel. The length of the outfit should be right for you as you’d want to be able to stand, walk and dance easily.
Pro-tip for Sikh Weddings: Test if you can sit cross-legged on the floor in your dress. If you can’t you know that it isn’t the right fit for you!
