Summer weddings are just around the corner and every true fashionista knows that the key to getting flawless occasion looks every time is planning. It’s very easy to get caught up in the routine hustle of life and procrastinate on shopping for the upcoming events in your calendar. Resulting in a mad dash to the finish line that ends with blowing up your wallet and your mind because it’s too late in the game to change things or look for something new. Even worse you could end up not shopping at all and turn up in something you’ve already worn several times before. Fashion victim labels aside you’ll probably regret not being more pro-active and getting your act together on time.
You might not have the same problems if online shopping is your therapy and the click-click of checkout takes you to your happy place. But you might have an issue with learning to edit your ensembles and preventing yourself from buying way too much stuff. If you’re a serious shopaholic then you probably have way too many things hanging in your closet right this minute. The problem? They’re probably dated because every new Indian wedding season brings with it refreshing styles. You can argue about the classics but let’s face it that floor length anarkali from 2 years ago just isn’t going to look on trend at a wedding in 2018. Neither will the diamante lehenga set that cost a fortune but you keep around cause promised yourself that you would wear it enough to justify the ridiculous price tag.
Lastly, if neither under-dressing nor overindulging is your problem but you do need to get a few nifty pieces to see you through all the Indian weddings then you’ve landed on the right spot. We’ve curated head to toe ensembles all available on a single website so you can get yourself kitted in a jiffy without any hassles. There are two options for each Indian wedding occasion with all the accessories making it even easier to make your selections.
Formal or informal, every Indian wedding does have some kind of a cocktail party for the younger family and friends. It’s the one time that you’ll need to wear something western but it certainly cannot be your basic jeans and tees.
Unleash your wild side in the Leopard Print Gown by Aida that will certainly stand out in a sea of one-dimensional colours. Bling it up with Black and White Blush Earrings by Roopa Vora and an Ojas Blood Agate Bracelet by Neha Jewelry. Finish off the glamorous look with stunning EXID heels by Veruschka and a shaded T-Weave Silver Box Clutch by Devina Juneja.
Cocktail Dressing Option 1
If it’s a smaller gathering that won’t require as much dressing up then mix it up with some fusion magic in a jumpsuit. Pair the Blue And Grey Two Toned Jumpsuit by Aida with the Reeba Mint Green Crystal and Kundan Necklace for an indo-western ensemble. A pair of nude Dew Veruschka pumps and the Autumn Inspired Cutwork Clutch by Devina Juneja will balance everything beautifully.
Cocktail Dressing Option 2
You know you will be dancing all night so be smart and choose ensembles that will help rather than hinder in the revelry. Voluminous and heavy lehengas or complicated draped sarees are better left for other occasions.
We’re totally crushing on the lehenga-palazzo hybrid in the Azraqui Sharara Set by Bodhitree. Don’t drown yourself in heavy jewellery but keep it simple with Green Latkan Chaandbali Earrings by Shillpa Purii. A potli bag is ideal because you can sling it over your shoulder without having to worry about leaving it unattended so the Navy Embroidered Potli Bag by Anita Dongre makes for a fantastic sangeet accessory. Top off the super colourful look with some decidedly neutral Zoila heels by Veruschka.
Sangeet Dressing Option 1
Yet another super comfy yet trendy option is the Soft Blush Wine Kurta Set by Renee Label. You will absolutely adore the freedom of dhoti trousers and wonder where they’ve been all your life while you tear up the dance floor with your moves. Stick with minimal jewellery with the Moon Chaandbali Earrings by Shillpa Purii and the Floral Motif Cuff by Roopa Vohra. Lastly, do a cosy double whammy yet be totally on point in Sansa Wedges by Veruschka.
Sangeet Dressing Option 2
With all the exciting functions done it’s time to get down to the serious business of attending the wedding. And if you’ve partied right then you will welcome the slow change of pace and the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the Indian wedding ceremony.
Yes, we know an Indian wedding is incomplete without bright and bold colours but recently there has been a significant shift towards pretty pastels. The Blush Pink Georgette Lehenga by Renee Label will have you looking like royalty thanks to its immaculate embroidery. It’s also the time to go all out with your jewellery so forget about separates and embrace the set of the Rivayat Kundan Necklace With Earrings And Mangtikka by Paisley Pop. Pair this already stunning ensemble with a matching Coral Double Paisley Box Clutch by The Purple Sack and gold Tribeca pumps by Veruschka.
Wedding Dressing Option 1
If you just cannot fathom attending an Indian wedding without wearing red then go fully ethnic with the Rose Red Butti Sari by Renee Label. Complete it with the layered charm of the Rohina Kundan Necklace by Paisley Pop, simple Cut Work Pearl Studed Earrings by Silvermerc and a statement ring like the 3D Flower With Metal Chain Ring by Ayushi Mittal. Finish off with red Victoria Peep Toes by Veruschka and the Golden Garden Bliss Clutch by The Purple Sack.
Wedding Dressing Option 2
It’s time to get contemporary with your reception ensembles. Depending on the style of the reception you will be attending, there will be some walking and socialising involved so airy and lightweight outfits will work best.
The vintage charm of the Tulle Laced Garden Saree by Abhishek Vermaa will make you unmistakeable in any crowd. Keep the jewellery and accessories extremely subdued so as not to take away from the gorgeousness of the saree. The Dhriti White Druzy Chandbaali Earrings by Paisley Pop and the Peach Zardosi Vintage Rose Pattern Clutch by Tresclassy for jewellery coupled with the Annie kitten heels by Veruschka are all you need to make a lasting impression.
Reception Dressing Option 1
If a saree is not your thing and you would rather go all western for the reception then go with the Tangerine Off Shoulder Gown by Renee Label. With a fully embroidered bodice there is really no need for too many ornaments lest you end up looking like a Christmas tree. Basic Cream Lapiz Lazuli Earrings by Ayushi Mittal and a Pink Yellow Druzy Ring by Roopa Vohra will do the trick. Complete the winning combination with sequined Gigi pumps by Veruschka and the matching Dainty Carrot Red Clutch by The Purple Sack.
