Clothes every bridesmaid must invest in
Once your friend decides to get hitched, the sadness of her getting hitched and maybe a bit away from you set in. Then comes the euphoria of her getting hitched, the wedding functions and planning on how to look stellar. Yes, it’s your best friend’s marriage but you are a star in your own right and often we end up dressing up to the tee; after all, your friend is important.
‘Yaar ki Shaadi’ is the best time and dressing for your best friend’s wedding is a tricky task as you have to find a dress that fits the wedding’s theme and venue, but also not so fabulous that it overshadows the bride on her big day. So if your best friend is also getting married, here are few tips to help you pick an amazing outfit for yourself.
Colours to wear
Apart from not wearing red on the wedding, there is no demarcation on how to dress up for your friend’s wedding. But to shine out pick away from the usual green, reds and pinks. Try orange, black, gold, purple or a bright cheery yellow for a day event.
Suits or kurtis
The best way to quick dress up is wearing a nice kurti. This works well for smaller wedding functions like the haldi or ladies sangeet or pooja. We love the range of these designer suits. The idea is to look dressed up but still chic. Add some heavy accessories and you are done.
A light yet pretty lehenga in bold colours makes a style statement. We love a deep purple and gold combination to stand out or a bright orange lehenga for the sangeet. The lehenga should be light, not to restrict your killer dance moves. Take a pick of a bridal lehenga from gorgeous ones available online.
Raid your mother’s closet
Your mother’s closet can come to your rescue every time you need wedding related attire. Pick her chiffon or silk sarees, add your dose of style by wearing them with a sexy corset or a crop top. You can also pick her wedding lehenga and get a new dupatta and blouse with it. Try a deep blue brocade saree for the engagement and a chiffon saree for the mehendi. Ask her first though!
A classic gown
You can never go wrong with a classic yet sexy gown. Buy one in a good fabric like silk and keep it to a single colour to look prettier. Make sure it has a deep back to look attractive and sexy. You can accessories according to the wedding function.
