Just like every other year, 2017 had also been a crazy joyride for bridal fashion. We saw so many new trends doing the rounds in the bridal market that we’re left spellbound. So we took a step back and scrounged through IRA’s wedding trousseau that are set to scorch the stage in 2018 as well.

1. Gown dresses

Indian weddings are gala affairs replete with pomp, show and colour. While there is no set dress-code as such for the guests attending Indian weddings, it helps if you turn up in Indian wear. To a wedding, you wanna wear something heavy. Unless you want to use some of your wedding trosseau’s sarees, wear a gorgeous designer Indian gown. It can be flashy or plain, depending on your personal preference.

 

2. Lehengas

If your wedding lehenga is not voluminous and lavish, simply go for it by toning down the look with less make up and minimal accessories. Drape the dupatta elegantly on one shoulder and sparkle at the event with grace.

 

3. Anarkalis

When it comes to attending a wedding as a guest, an anarkali suit is the best option. It is trendy, elegant and dressy, all at once, without being overwhelming. We have some gorgeous anarkalis in great styles that we know you’ll love. Pair the outfit with a nice clutch and shiny footwear and you are all set to roll at the wedding.

 

4. Sarees

You can wear a nice saree in silk, crepe, chiffon or georgette that has embellishments and detailing to make it dressy and festive. We’ve picked elegant and classy pieces from our collection that are perfect for a wedding guest.
Choose a heavy saree for the baraat – in a bright color but avoid flashy rhinestones or stuff and wear something traditional but rich-looking like a Banarasi saree. Saffron, gold, crimson, eggplant and sapphire blue are some of the opulent color options.

 

 

Add the bling factor!

The one thing that gets religiously observed at Indian weddings is the jewellery. Limit your selection to one statement neckpiece, beautiful earrings and a couple of bangles to go with your wedding saree or wedding lehenga.

In conclusion…

Indian weddings are a celebration of colour and style. Go all out and wear clothes that reflect the happy and momentous occasion that a wedding is. While you are at the wedding, shake a leg and participate in the festivities. We are sure that you will cherish the memories and your pictures will bear testimony to all the fun you had! We hope this guests guide will help you dress for your next Indian wedding!
