Mehndi, sangeet, marriage ceremony, reception, and so on! The big fat Indian wedding is all about the multitude of ceremonies that happen over a good few days, each of them a grand event in themselves. And just like the ceremonies, the bride and groom outfits for each need to be diverse. If you’re one of those tying the knot this year, this list will help you avoid some common mistakes and look your best on the most special day of your life.
Coordinate Your Outfits
This may seem banal to start with but coordinating outfits with your bride or groom is a perfect way to make an impression and flaunt your love for each other. You don’t need to go overboard with the idea and match everything, simply coordinate the colours of your dupatta or the sherwani and lehenga and you’re good to go.
Balance Style with Comfort
Sure, it is important to look chic and flattering on your wedding, but it is equally important to feel comfortable. Keep in mind, Indian wedding ceremonies are long and tiring, and some even include dancing! Make sure you choose an outfit that has a perfect balance of style and comfort.
Take it Easy with the Make-Up
Simplicity is the best ornament you can wear at your wedding. While it is acceptable to complement your lehenga or sherwani with some jewellery, it is not always a good idea to laden your face with excessive make-up. Just put enough to accentuate your natural features and you’ll shine through with elegance.
Pick the Right Footwear
Heels are not for every bride. Likewise, Mojaris are not for every groom, no matter how fancy and appropriate they look. Be it your sangeet, wedding or reception, your footwear should be something you are comfortable spending hours standing or dancing in.
Whether you’re the bride or groom, if you’re having an Indian wedding, be sure to embrace the true beauty of Indian traditions. Pick at least one accessory or piece of clothing that has a cultural value, like a “Kalgi” or brooch on the turban in case of the groom, and a maang tikka, nathni (nose piece) or Gajra in case of the bride.
