Your super stylish bestie and recently married cousin have already given you enough advice on what to wear for your sangeet, cocktail, pheras. You too have also dedicatedly bookmarked several looks you’d love to wear for your key wedding functions. But what about the more intimate (but equally important) soirees—a dinner thrown by your relatives or the first festival with your in-laws—that no one talks about? If that is the area you are looking for some style inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. We break it down for you brides.
Lunch with the in-laws
You will be wearing ample bright colours in the days to come. Tone it down for lunch with your in-laws and their friends. An elegant ivory sari with jewellery in the same shade will make them love you even more.
Whether thrown by your parents’ best friends or your favourite cousins, keep it simple and chic yet not underdressed. A boxy crop blouse and lehenga skirt will do the trick. Go traditional (think juttis and potli) with your accessories too.
The welcome lunch at the onset of your wedding festivities will set the tone for your sartorial ratings. Keep the OTT looks for the functions to come—a luxurious anarkali and palazzo set with statement jewellery is all you need.
The last event of your wedding festivities gives you leeway to skip the lehenga. You are probably tired from all the dressing up. A contemporary draped dhoti and crop blouse set keeps it stylish but also oh-so-comfortable, so that you can dance without a care.
Your first festival
Go traditional with a gota lehenga but don’t shun the modernity altogether. Let your blouse take care of that. This look is perfect for card party hopping at Diwali.
