Dressing for your best friend’s wedding is a tricky task. You want to find The Dress that fits the wedding’s theme and venue, but not one so fabulous that it overshadows the bride on her big day. Weddings are so much fun and if you aren’t the one planning it; there isn’t much to stress about. Although with today’s wedding trends changing so rapidly, it can be hard to know what to wear to your friend’s wedding. Is white still off the table? What about red or black? What does black tie optional mean? And the most frightening of all, what if there is no dress code attire specified on the invite?
Here goes our wish list for you for your best friend’s wedding.
Dhoti is an traditional piece that looks great with almost everything. From crop tops to kurtis, you can pair a dhoti with anything and everything.
A modern twist to a traditional version of the dhoti is dhoti pants, paired here with the lime asymmetrical organza kurta for a modern girl who wants to have a traditional look with a contemporary touch. The kurta is subtly hand embroidered with floral design which make it apt for informal fun haldi event.
Styling : Statement earrings and a ring to accessorise and traditional golden peep-toe jutis are all you need to dance on all the peppy number during the Haldi ceremony.
Mehendi means you’re on duty. You’ve to feed the bride, dance and get henna on your hands too! We suggest a slip kurti and palazzo for this occasion.
Slip kurti with palazzo are highly popular among women today when it comes to ethnic wear. They have class, elegance, tradition and beauty all combined in one single attire. This ivory zari work slip kurti with ivory butti georgette palazzo and shaded pink and mint dupatta with scallop edging is a great choice for mehendi.
Styling : Cannot give the ‘pasa’ a pass! No slip kurti – palazzo suit look will be complete without a beautiful piece of jewellery called the ‘pasa’. There are multiple options for you to choose from. You can go for pearls or stone work. For the more traditional and royal look, you can also opt for pasas made of kundan.
