From the time I got married, this category is the most meaningful to me. If I were in Mumbai, honestly I wouldn’t really bother about wedding guest fashion….Mumbai is quite laid back as some of you might agree. But Delhi on the other hand is crazy when it comes to weddings.
Its probably the same amount of stress for wedding guests as it is for the bride to decide what to wear for someones wedding. Can’t repeat outfits in which picture has been clicked, season wise dressing, follow trends..take approval from MIL. The biggest one. Its c-r-a-z-y-y-y-y-y-y-y.
So this ones close to my heart.
In this post, you will see options ranging from casual (fusion) lehengas to anarkalis, gowns and anything and everything that looks right and importantly re-usable by everyone. After all, buying that one outfit for that one occasion is just not possible all the time.
FAVORITE ANARKALI LOOKS
I love Ridhi Mehra style. She does classy yet wearable pieces, and this time was no different. Her outfits resonates her vision of simple yet elegant and a lot of celebs are endorsing her style which is great. The key thing to remember when picking up a wedding guest outfit is that it shouldn’t outdo the brides outfit. Like complete no no.
No matter what anyone would say, its always a good idea to have one or two of these pieces which are multi-usable for any occasion.
A CLASSIC SAREE BY SANTOSH PAREKH
A classic kanjeevaram never goes wrong, and these sarees were definitely worth a mention. I loved how the saree was the main bit of the outfit and the blouse was kept simple. I never go for head to toe bling/opulent…so this took care of that bit quite well. Whether you are a new bride or otherwise, a classic saree such as this is a mandate for any trousseau.
Sabyasachi rocked the velvet with fur look this year, and it was fabulous. The designer is the epitome of bridal luxury outfits and one can see how. Imagine owning a Sabyasachi saree this beautiful. Each one is a prized possession and I can’t stop admiring the beauty of these sarees. One word – gorgeous !
SOME OTHER SAREE LOVE FROM LFW WINTER/FESTIVE 2016
Like OMG this outfit…I am crying here, because I don’t own this outfit. Do you love it as much as I do? Manish Malhotra is really making a comeback with crazy good outfits this year…I am almost in two minds thinking if he is giving solid competition to the otherwise Sabyasachi dominated industry. What do you think?
ROYAL FLOOR LENGTH COATS BY SABYASACHI
“I’ve always liked long coats for Indian women. They’re typically larger framed, and not too tall, so if you’re wearing one colour from top to toe, it gives you that linear look, because it stretches your frame, and simultaneously shrinks you horizontally. And now with so many destination weddings, women don’t want to fill up their suitcases with an entire lehenga. The can-can takes a lot of space, but a coat with a pair of trousers is perfect for wedding celebrations.”
“After her wedding, I think a bride could wear one of these coats with an Indian choker with a tucked-in shirt, skinny jeans or even leather pants. Add that goth quotient with ornamental shoes, like a spiked Louboutin and a beautiful exotic bag.”
