Simple Lehengas To Wear To Indian Weddings
06 th Oct 2015

Attention all  mothers, sisters, friends, acquaintances and colleagues of the bride! You have an impending grand Indian wedding to attend and while you are expected to be dressed to the nines it is also an unwritten rule of wedding guest etiquette that upstaging the bride is a massive faux pas.

Treading the fine line between being dressed well but not extravagantly at an Indian wedding is quite similar to walking the tight rope atop a high rise.

It requires a special skill and attention to minute details to ensure that you are dressed appropriately, respectfully and most importantly in a way that doesn't steal focus from the bride. For those of you facing this conundrum as guests, simple lehengas are perfect for providing that delicate balance between dressy and understated.

Brides whose own style falls on the subtle end of the spectrum can also resort to simple lehengas that can be dressed up or down depending on the magnitude of the festivities. Simple lehengas have the added advantage of being versatile enough to be styled in different ways and worn at several weddings making them worthy investments. While there is nothing worse than an over dressed guest at a wedding, there is also nothing more embarrassing than a bride who looks like she’s attending someone else’s wedding rather than the star of her own. Simple lehengas afford both brides and guests the flexibility to be paired with jewellery, accessories, hairstyles and make up that can range from minimalistic to glamorous and everything in between.

When selecting simple lehengas steer clear of too much embroidery and focus on luxurious fabrics, rich colour combinations and structured silhouettes instead. An amalgamation of all these elements will lead to an ensemble that is elegant and opulent at the same time. Get creative with your styling and capture the mood of the function with the clever use of statement baubles and appropriate hair and makeup for a look that is well groomed, trendy and chic.

Use the below simple lehenga looks as inspirations for styling your own look or copy them exactly to make things easier on yourself. And don’t worry. We won’t tell.

Look 1: Mehendi

A vibrant coloured simple lehenga like the Hot Pink Raw Silk Lehenga by Spoilt Chic will look absolutely stunning for a Mehendi. Style it with some gold accessories like Enchanting Kundan Earrings by Yosshita and Neha, a Pink Floral Clutch by Meera Mahadevia and finish it off with a side braid and gold smokey eye makeup. The clutch bag with its embellished handles will come in handy when your henna is still drying and the dancing gets under way.

Look 2: Sangeet

There is no better time than the sangeet to go indo-western and spunky with your outfit. Take a cue from the Distinctive Fusion Set by Kanelle featuring a wrap skirt with front pleats and a fully embellished high neck gold crop top. This simple lehenga is sure to have you embracing your inner metallic goddess. Accessorise with some druzy stone Charming Black Earrings and Jeweled Statement Cuff both by Roopa Vora for a spunky twist. Add a touch of glam with smokey eyes and a messy up do.

Look 3: Wedding

Stand out in a sea of traditional reds, greens and yellows with a pastel hued simple lehenga like the Chic Net Brocade Lehenga by Anita Dongre. Keep the accessories minimalistic with a pair of stud earrings, a Floral Motif Basket Weave Cuff by Roopa Vora and a Gold Fiesta Clutch Bag by The Purple Sack. Style your hair in loose curls and sport a bright red pout for a make up look that embodies easy chic.

Look 4: Reception

There is no better time for experimentation than at the reception. Save your stylish best for last with a look that exudes charm from top to bottom. Show off some leg in a sheer simple lehenga like the Striking Mod Lehenga by Sougat Paul. Offset the blue lace long top with a gold choker like the Pretty Hammered Necklace by Ritika Sachdeva. Get bold with striking blue smokey eyes and a side bun topped off with a Blue and Red Maharani Clutch by Meera Mahadevia for all your party essentials.
