  • Lehenga Choli

Depending on the work and style of the lehenga choli, it can be worn by the bride as well the bride and groom’s family and friends without looking overdressed. The lehenga has seen a lot of styles being added to the list; flared, fish cut, trailing hemline and the puffed up lehenga. The latest to join the fusion bandwagon in Indian ethnic wear is the fusion lehenga choli where girls are replacing the choli with a crop top, peplum top or adding a cape over a bralette being used as a choli.

  • Shararas

You wouldn’t want to attend a wedding and not wear a sharara on at least one occasion. Light pastel shades are currently the top picks for shararas. Short Kurtas and heavy embellished dupatta look amazing with a flared sharara. Another variant in this is the gharara which has a snug fit till the knee and then flares down below. A jhoomar in your hair and chandbalis in your ear will give you a dreamy look straight out of the movies. Take a potli bag along with you and see the heads turn in awe and admiration.

  • Indo-western gowns

Gowns that come with an open jacket or gowns that have a pallu pre-stitched to them, also known as the saree gown, are the perfect example of an Indo western gown. Traditional detailing and fabric with western cuts make it the perfect dress for evening functions like a cocktail party. The style can be one depending on your comfort level and you can select from a one-shoulder, off-shoulder, flowy gown, layered gown or a straight fit mermaid gown. A small box clutch, nude pumps, a tiara, and some chandeliers are all you need to look like a diva.
