Weddings are an integral part of our Indian culture. The wedding industry in India is multi-million dollar industry which is flourishing on the fact that the BIG FAT INDIAN Weddings are not just about the shaadi day but also a dozen other functions. The list of functions are endless, and so is the endless confusion on what to wear on each of these days. The tension doubles if you are a bridesmaid or the groom’s sister. To help bridesmaid in this regard, we have come up with these 4 fabulous ethnic looks to freshen up your style.
1.Traditional two piece lehenga for bridesmaid
Shaadi and lehenga are almost two synonymous words. Nothing can be more elegant and ethnic than a two piece lehenga choli to wear at a sagan party or on the main wedding day. Pink is almost every girl’s favorite color. Namrata looks stunning in this pink lehenga that she has paired with big golden danglers and a golden maang tikka. To spice up the look Geetanjali Salon, CP gave her a low bun with a neat look from the front. Dupatta is difficult to carry with heavy dresses so it’s always a better idea to secure it with a pin. She has taken the dupatta on one of her shoulders and draped it halfway around her waist from one end. So, I hope all the bridesmaid reading this find the below look easy to carry.
2. Long Jacket with pencil pants
A new trend that has taken the center stage are the long jackets paired up with pencil pants. In this look, Namrata has worn an elegant off-white jacket. It is very simple to wear, just lock the pearl buttons at the front and you are all set. It has beautiful sleeves with mirror work on them and a mirrored waist band. The mirror detailing on the side slits accentuates the entire look. The jacket looks classy and stands out with the tie dye pants. I love the beautiful mix of bright colors used in the pencil pants. This kind of look can be carried off at a Mehendi function. So bridesmaid, look different on each function.
3. Long Palazzo suit
This is another ethnic look that Namrata is featuring in here. Long shirts with palazzo is very much in these days. They look really elegant and classy. She is wearing a traditional long shirt in peach color which has button detailing in front. The palazzo in golden color adds a rich look to the dress. The dupatta is a mix of yellow and peach color and has golden beads engrossed all over. This kind of look can be carried off at kirtan/ chowki function.
Gowns are the favorite Indo-western outfits that hang in our wardrobe. Namrata has worn a fabulous off-white gown here with golden stone work on the neck. Her hair-do in a side bun looks really pretty with artsy artificial flowers put on it. This look adds glam for a sagan function. To accessorize this look, Namrata chose to wear buttoned earrings and a beautiful hand harness.
So go bridesmaids, stock these looks in your wardrobe for this wedding season and feel special as all eyes are sure to turn around at you.
