Indian weddings and richly embroidered or embellished, heavy Indian wedding dresses go hand in hand. No one, I repeat, no one can think of not buying a nice, richly-hued Indian outfit for an Indian wedding. Be that of a friend’s, relative’s or one’s own.
Quite on the same note, India is known to be that place that is richly laden with the exuberance of rich cultures, languages, traditions, practices and attires. The wedding rituals too, well, quite obviously, varies from one to another.
But even so much diversification, the brides are united on one note. They usually choose to get married in traditional Indian dresses. Let’s read below some of the most common Indian dresses worn in weddings.
The Traditional Indian Wedding Dresses
- Salwar Kameez: A comfortable pair of Salwar Kameez is a common yet a great option for a wedding dress. Intricately embroidered or embellished, designer salwar suits can be a great option for morning events on the Wedding day. Brides or bridesmaids can also go bold with a modern Palazzo or Sharara suit.
- Anarkali Suits: The floor-touching, flared kurta, paired with a churidar, palazzo or lehenga and a dupatta, looks absolutely stunning. For the morning look go for yellows, blues and pastel shades and for the D-day or reception look, choose red, maroon, wine, pink or orange. You can also choose to go for a beige shade. They look classy and regal.
- Lehenga: Brides never forget to add a designer lehenga in their trousseau. Sequinned, or zari embroidered, in silk or in net, available in a variety of colours, each designer lehenga looks absolutely gorgeous as a traditional wedding dress.
- Indian Sarees: Be it the traditional silk sarees or the modern designer sarees, brides often cannot choose between the two, and end up buying a lot of pieces. The drape of a saree, the traditional jewellery, soft makeup and a hairdo with flowers make the brides look the brightest.
