Nothing beats the opulence and glamor of an Indian wedding. If you’ve attended a few, you know what we’re talking about. If you’ve received invites to marriage ceremonies in the upcoming days, we have five tips that’ll help you choose the right ensemble.
1) Say yes to sarees
Though salwar kameezes, lehengas and Anarkalis are all popular ensemble choices for Indian weddings, this is your chance to wear the fanciest designer sarees in your wardrobe. Choose from a wide range of sarees in materials ranging from chiffons to silks to nets and more. Apart from this, the timeless nature of sarees will make every purchase a worthwhile investment.
2) Dress for different wedding events
Thanks to varying regional practices and traditions, each Indian wedding will be uniquely different from the other. Therefore, choose sarees that correspond to different marriage functions. For example, wear a saree with heavy Zari work for the main event, a green saree to the Mehendi and a sequined piece in black and gold to the reception. Similarly, if you’re attending a destination wedding or have to conform to a dress code, buy sarees accordingly.
3) Choose bright warm colors over reds
This goes without saying, but don’t wear red to an Indian wedding since it’s the bride’s color. However, you can still choose from an array of bold oranges, golds, yellows, and pinks.
4) Embellishments are your friend
Heavy embroidery, appliques, threadwork, stone work, sequins, Zari buttis, woven borders – there are no limits to the kind of embellishments you can flaunt on your sarees while attending an Indian wedding.
5) Brighten up dull shades
Though all sarees may look great on you, steer clear of dull colors like greys, whites, and browns during weddings. If you do have to choose these shades, make sure they’re bought alive with complementary shades or metallic threadwork.
You can either sport elaborate heirloom jewellery or go with a statement piece or two to complement your sarees. Similarly, use accessories like clutches and heels to complete the look. We hope these tips help you choose the right look for upcoming wedding events. Go to the Soch site right away to select from our extensive range of designer sarees.
