There’s a reason we call it the big fat Indian wedding. There’s a list of events panned out days before the wedding. There’s always some music in the background, the place is lit up with lovely fairy lights and adorned with flowers. In the midst of all the glamour, people are happy and smiling. But, the wedding season calls for more than that to stand out! Here are some tips to get heads turning:
With May being the summer season, its best to choose attire that will keep you comfortable in the heat. Pick smart linen shirts, light cotton trousers for a day event, like the mehendi ceremony. A sky blue shirt teamed with a pair of white trousers or a simple white shirt paired with dark coloured chinos will work wonders for you.
A sleek kurta is an all-time-favourite fashion statement. It’s really comfortable and makes you stand out from the crowd. You can experiment with various designs and fits depending on the function you have to attend. A simple kurta in shades of yellow for the Haldi, or with a Nehru jacket to set the dance floor ablaze on the night of the Sangeet – you will make a lasting impression. For the main wedding event, adopt an ethnic theme and dress up in a stunning sherwani with a pair of mojdis.
You can never go wrong with a suit. Without a worry, suit up for the reception or the cocktail night and move around the crowd with ease. Be sure to pick out the best fitting suit and if you already own one, make sure you get it altered perfectly. Check out ways to make your old suit look brand new here.
The right accessories are sure to amp your look to another level. You can add a tan brown leather belt with a linen shirt and elegant dress shoes with your suit. Pick up a pair of mojdis to go all out. Also, to add a regional twist, you can wear a pair of Kolhapuri Chappals.
