An Indian wedding is no less than a red carpet event.
With the celebrations being everything ott and glamorous, it’s a mandate to ditch normalcy and flaunt a certain celebrity aura.
Be it your besties wedding, your cousin’s mehndi function or an elite reception gathering, dressing up for that stand out appearance is a task that requires sincere efforts. But if the end result renders you your showstopper moment, then we say a little bit of hard work is totally worth it.
To make life easier, and to give some extra boost to your wedding shopping efficiency, we have created a comprehensive list of dresses spotted on our very own Bollywood fashionistas help you curate a wedding wardrobe with that touch of celebrity sparkle.
So, read on lovelies to know exactly what to wear this season.
The Bride’s Mother
For fashion mongers, the second most important person after the bride is her mother.
An epitome of elegance and grace is what defines a bride’s mother. Hence outfits that correspond to this angelic mirage would be the absolute right picks.
A Banarasi Saree For the Wedding
A banarsi drape in bright reds, orange and pinks is an all time favorite. A hybrid of glamour and class, a heritage piece that spells India’s traditional skill would be our top pick. Courtesy designers like Raw Mango, Payal Khandwala and Gaurang Shah, the weaves have made a superstar comeback making it the hottest trend of the season.
Most recently we spotted Mohenjodaro fame, actress Pooja Hegde draped in a beautiful red and gold Banarsi six yards embellished with a contrasting blue banarsi border.
Light Lehenga For Morning Functions
For one of those morning functions bloom in a beautiful light lehenga in hearty pastels.
Actress Tisca Chopra’s pastel lehenga set from Raw Mango is a welcome break from the usual wedding staples. We particularly love the way the stylist at MissPunvanity chose to drape the dupatta. Dressy yet understated this look is sure to get you all the compliments reminding you of your yester years.
A Saree For The Reception
A gorgeous saree will never turn you down. After a heavy deck up in the wedding function a light yet beautiful piece will keep those compliments coming your way. After a heavy dose of wedding shades, opt to go for muted english tones like lavenders and blues. Keeping your attire understated, allow your statement heavy jewellery pieces to do all the talking for you at the party.
A saree veteran actress Sridevi recently wore caught our attention. The light blue tulle saree embellished with an antique gold border from Manish Malhotra is a refreshing take on glamour.
The Bride’s Sister
A bride’s sister is most literally a bride’s “Maid”. Entrusted with all the odd-jobs during
her sister’s wedding the sister should ensure her outfits are chic yet comfortable.
Lehenga For The Wedding
Own the wedding soiree wearing pretty lehenga. To turn heads and amp up the heat, pair your prettiness with a sexy choli.
Anita Dongre’s plush gota work lehenga spotted on the leggy lass, Athiya Shetty makes for the perfect cut. Gota work is the perfect choice courtesy all that weightless gaudiness it renders to its bearer. You can run all the wedding errands and still be the showstopper.
A Dreamy Gown For The Reception
For the reception evening, a dreamy gown that heightens your prettiness should be the ideal pick. Soft tones with delicate embellishments is all you need.
An outfit similar to what Tamannaah Bhatia wore recently is our preferred pick. The peach gown from the house of Neeta Lulla adorned with floral applique work looks delicate with the cape sleeve ensuring the outfit is high on both beauty and trend.
Floor Length For Mehendi
A pastel floor length lit up with pretty embroidery is our top pick for the mehendi function of your sister.
Mira’s outfit gave us some serious goals for dressing up this wedding season. We are in love with the icy mint and peach floor length from AM PM.
The Bride’s Bestie
Saree With A Cape Or Fringes For The Wedding
Bollywood is still enjoying the fringed benefits. Carry an extraordinary fringed saree to your bestie’s wedding and you are sure to be the talk of the evening. Alternatively, with capes still trending high wearing a cape saree to your bestie’s wedding is bound to grab eyeballs.
We heart this Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla fringed six yards which will ensure you hit all the high notes on the style radar this wedding season.
We are still lusting over Kalki’s Sabyasachi cape saree she wore to the IIFA awards this year. An eclectic mix of grace and style indeed.
Patterned Ensemble For The Mehendi
With all that fun that surrounds a bestie’s mehendi function, make sure you wrap yourself in colors and patterns that look high on energy.
The Anamika Khanna one-piece, Sridevi was spotted carrying recently checks all the boxes for the mehendi party.
An Embellished Gown For The Reception
With all that glitterati associated with a grand reception, we are definite of the impact a glamorous studded figure hugging gown.
Raveena’s Falguni and Shane number does pure justice to any elite reception evening.
Equipped with this trend report for the upcoming wedding season, march into the boutiques ladies and pick the piece that will render you your celebrity moment.
