The wedding day is not the only day in an Indian wedding. We like things to be extravagant and larger than life, so we have a range of other functions accompanying the big wedding day. It is a series of functions, having its own importance in their own way. Also, our cultural roots, to which we are very attached dictate that we have these other functions, all of which have some symbolic meaning and cultural significance. All these functions demand a different look depending on various factors.
First up is the Sangeet, which is filled with fun and frolic. Be sure to be high on fashion and you have limitless potential to actually show off your creativity as there are no boundations when it comes to the colours and styles that you can pull off. Dance till your feet hurt and twirl the night away in floor length anarkalis or gorgeous lehengas. If Indian attire is not on your mind and you want to retire from being all coy and demure, go for a graceful and fitted western gown.
Most of the times, a Cocktail party is not a separate event but instead, is combined with the sangeet. If that is not the case for you, grab onto this opportunity to show off your best fashion style. You can wear subtle colours like pastels, ivory or a beautiful pink either in a gorgeous saree, or a graceful gown. Indo-western style gowns are also getting popular these days.
On Mehendi, the bride to be gets henna (or Mehendi) applied on her hands, arms and legs and has a lot of fun with her friends and cousins. Ensure that your outfit is something loose and comfortable along with being super trendy. You can style yourself with a vibrant crop top lehenga, patiala-shahi salwar kameez with a beautiful pattern or embroidery work on it, a unique dhoti with a kurti and jacket or even a sharara so that you can get mehendi applied on your legs with ease.
Engagement is a chance for the bride to play her best glam game and give a graceful touch to her attire. Depending on her tastes and style, the bride-to-be can opt for numerous outfits for that special touch of grace, sophistication and elegance because an engagement is just as lavish and exuberant as the main wedding day since it is the day the match is fixed. Among these are options for dresses like lehenga with brocade work, a gown with sequins on it or perhaps a zari embroidered tulle saree.
Wedding is the most important function for obvious reasons. The choice of your wedding dress depends on your origins to a large extent. Brides to be in the Southern part of our country dress themselves up in off white sarees with a thick border on them or they can also wear these sarees in a ravishing shade of red. Up north, brides usually opt for lehengas in bright shades like red, pink, maroon etc. Bengali brides usually wear a Banarasi silk sarees in red, maroon, pink or even off white. Sikh brides wear gorgeous and heavily embroidered salwar kameez. Whatever colour you choose, make sure the colour suits you. You should also keep the wedding decor in mind to pick the right colour of your wedding dress as well.
