An Indian wedding includes an array of traditional ceremonies, rituals, customs and more. Whether you have been invited to a Hindu, Muslim or Sikh traditional wedding ceremony, your number one question may be what to wear to an Indian wedding. The following tips will help you put on the right attire that is suitable for a traditional Indian wedding.
What to Wear to an Indian Wedding?
1. Proper Dress Code
For the religious ceremony, you should wear a traditional sari and attire, but that is not required. If you choose not to wear the traditional Indian attire, remember to avoid baring the shoulders, low cut tops, skirts or other revealing pieces.
2. Colors Not To Wear
Bright colors are highly encouraged at Indian weddings and only a few colors should be avoided when choosing your wedding attire. Do not wear white or black as there are the colors worn at funerals and for morning. Red should also be avoided since this is the color that the bride tends to wear.
3. Comfort Is a Must
Indian ceremonies are often long drawn-out and time-consuming events. You want to make sure your attire is comfortable and not tight. You also want to consider the Indian traditions and culture: Anything too revealing or tight can make other guests feel uncomfortable.
4. Dress to Impress
You want to be comfortable, but you do not want to dress too casually. To fit in, buy a traditional wedding saree, lehengas or anarkali suit. Wear something festive for the occasion and do not forget about the little details. Place extra attention on your make up, hair and dazzling accessories.
6. Jewellery, Bling and Sparkling Things
Jewellery is a key focus for many of the women that attend an Indian wedding, so do not feel uncomfortable if you are getting stared at. Choose at least one special piece to wear around your neck and matching earrings to emphasis it. Bangles are also a common jewellery accessory that you will see most of the women wearing. Jewellery pieces should be your focus when deciding what to wear to an Indian wedding.
