A Wedding in Salwar - Bridesmaid Special

If you’re sister or bff is getting married, chances are that you are part of her entourage of bridesmaids. This occasion demands something very special and it will be a memory to cherish forever. To make the big day and the other ceremonies count, you need to look fabulous as well. Because without some Instagram worthy wedding looks, are you really even the perfect bridesmaid? As a bridesmaid, you will have a lot of work like running around, attending to guests and other stuff. Salwar suits can be your go-to options in this scenario, as they look great, are super comfortable and far easier to manage than heavy lehengas or sarees. So be the perfect bridesmaid and rule the wedding in a gorgeous salwar.

Morning Haldi

The haldi ceremony often becomes a messy affair and wearing a pretty yellow Indian salwar suit can be your best option. You must enjoy too, and this will let you play around, run around and pose for as many pictures as you want. 

The Sangeet and Mehendi

For the sangeet, a full-length salwar with some embellishment or detailing work best. A color like emerald, peacock blue, magenta or violet looks great for evenings. Choose one which twirls when you move around and you’ll see many heads turning towards you too. 

The Trends

If you want to look a little different, try the latest trend in Indian dresses salwar kameez. You can look at contrasting colors, cigarette pants, jodhpuris or palazzos with kameez to try a different fusion look. Accessorize with jhumkas and mangtikas to make it look sufficiently Indian for a wedding. Try the new front open kameez with printed pants. These can be quite the showstoppers amidst mundane saree looks in a wedding. 

The Work

Choose one piece of the salwar kameez that you like the maximum detailing on and wear one outfit with that. For example, if dupatta is your favorite, wear a plain velvet or silk suit with a heavily embellished or embroidered dupatta. Kameez with detailing can be of various kinds so pick according to your wishes. For the experimental ones, printed or embroidered pants look great too if you can carry them off! 

The Material

Choose luxurious materials like velvet, silk, chiffon, and georgette than boast of a sheen. They work best in bright, colorful and opulent events like weddings.

Salwars can be your most comfortable wear and yet can be quite different from the ordinary crowd. Also, remember, you can never steal the bride’s thunder in a salwar, and she’ll love you for it.
