2020 might be cancelled but we’re not letting that take away from the magic of weddings. The larger than life decor, the gorgeous clothes and the wedding ceremonies in itself, it’s something we’re always looking forward to! And when it’s an intimate affair with your closest ones, the best parts of it is choosing the perfect wedding outfits for women and men. When it’s a day for celebrating love and family, the occasion calls for bringing out your fashionable best, bling and all! Part of the zoom wedding gang? Don’t shy away from dressing torso-up and putting in some extra effort into hair and makeup!
Here are our favourite looks for the season:
Charm Over Cocktails for Him
We love our cocktail nights because that’s when the stories worth remembering happen! Planning to steal the spotlight? Do that in this classic tuxedo except we’re skipping black for the darkest shade of purple in this men’s suit for a cocktail party. Skip the bow tie to keep it casual for a zoom wedding or go the extra mile. This bow tie . Don’t forget to add the finishing touches with an evening fragrance that’ll make an instant impression in your wedding outfit, and a charming one at that!
Chic in Black for Her
Nothing better than a slinky black dress for a cocktail night but that’s been done too many times to count so we’re bringing in some ethnic wear for women while choosing evening dresses for weddings. We’re loving this black kurta-dress with a zari embroidered dupatta, that gives us so much space to experiment with colours! Planning to keep it simple? Go with these chandelier earrings and bring the colour in with a deep, red lip . Or with a fuschia or peach! Pair the look with some strappy block heels and don’t forget to carry a clutch which might just end up being the star of your outfit if it’s a shimmery grey-blue sling like this one.
Paisley Days for Him
Day weddings have a completely different vibe compared to evening events so ethnic wear for men for day weddings surely has to be different as well! Go for a subdued red printed kurta with a paisley and floral pattern and add a Nehru jacket in a complementing colour, such as a pastel peach tone. Solid black chinos tie the entire look together and as a finishing touch, add a pocket square in deep crimson. Sunglasses are a must-have for day time wedding outfits and these irregular shaped frames with a tortoiseshell and gold rim are perfect for an event! For footwear, go for leather monks which hit the sweet spot between formal and fancy!
Mustard Dream for Her
Floral decor, open venues and natural light! What could be a better setting for a wedding? If you want to radiate sunshine at a day wedding, yellow is the colour to go for while choosing a wedding outfit for women. This bright, patterned skirt with a mellow sheen is such a statement! But we are not going simple on the top either, with this muted gold and cream brocade kurta that you can either tuck in or leave outside the skirt. Complement the wide neckline with a gold choker to keep your collarbones in focus and throw on some rose tinted cat eyed glasses . Finishing touches come with some fresh flowers tucked into your messy bun (we prefer mogras and white roses) and a pair of embellished juttis so that nothing stops you from dancing your heart out in your wedding outfit.
An Artsy Affair for Him
A Jodhpuri bandhgala that fits well is a staple in ethnic wear for men so we’re making a staple exquisite with this batik print bandhgala suit. Add a deep blue pocket square to complement the grey and a pair of well-crafted silver cufflinks in an abstract shape. It’s an artsy, suave take on a traditional fit so wear it with a touch of confidence. Start prepping for the event a day in advance with glow boosting oil with sandalwood and vetiver to give your skin that radiant glow. And if it’s a zoom wedding, slick your hair back neatly for a fresh out of the shower look.
Earthy Delight for Her
Take a step away from the reds and pinks of the crowd’s evening dresses for women with this elegant palazzo suit set in brown and gold. The rayon is extremely flowy and the foil print gives a subtle sheen that’ll be enhanced with a golden chanderi dupatta with an embellished border. We’re going for gold with these pearl drop earrings. Pair the look with smokey eyes for some extra mystery and plump, glossy lips with a nude lip gloss. Don’t forget a classic fragrance, such as this Gucci Eau De Toilette with intimate lilac and warm amber.
