We like to believe there’s nothing more festive than an Indian wedding. Try recalling all the weddings you’ve seen in Bollywood movies so far and you get the picture.
Most Indian weddings are divided into three parts – pre-wedding ceremonies, the main event and the post-wedding reception. You can be invited to one, all three or more events based on how close you are to the family. Since this can overwhelm anyone, we’ve chosen a few pieces to add to your wardrobe so that you’re ready for any wedding invite that comes your way this year.
