Is it your BFF's wedding and you're wondering what to wear without burning a hole in your pocket? You don't need to spend thousands on that dream lehenga or the gorgeous saree. It's all about finding the perfect yet not-so-expensive outfit. Nothing excites us more than our BFF's wedding. The event gives us mixed emotions but the dominating one is the excitement and happiness. Which best friend wouldn't like to grab some of the bride's limelight and look her best on her BFF's special day?
We know how difficult it is to decide what to wear and what not for a wedding. Many of us would like to experiment a bit but the idea that it could turn out to be a complete disaster quickly makes us change our mind.
So, stop fretting about what style of outfit to wear and the accessories to choose. After all, too much stress can make you break out in pimples, and you don't want that do you? Given below are the dress codes for you for each occasion: Mehendi, Sangeet, Wedding and Reception. Just go through the list and you are sorted:
1. A dhoti for a change!
For that chic and offbeat look, put on your favourite anarkali kurta and dhoti set. The vibrant colour and the delicacy of it would make it just perfect for your bestie's sangeet or mehendi ceremony. Pair it with matching juttis and don't forget to wear those oversized sunnies for an afternoon function.
2. A kalamkari saree
A printed kalamkari red saree with traditional motifs will look very elegant. Wear it with a black blouse for your bestie's engagement or for the smaller but intimate functions. Borrow your mom's statement ethnic necklace to complete your look.
3. A crop top with a heavy skirt
Put on a raw silk crop top/blouse with a white high-waist skirt that breaks into various other colours at the bottom of it. This is one outfit that'll make you stand out at your bestie's reception. A statement ring and gorgeous danglers are all you need with this ensemble.
One can never go wrong with a long anarkali suit and it gets even better if it is a piece as vibrant and festive as this one. A leheriya kurta matched with vibrant jacket and heavy embroidery is sure to fetch you tonnes of compliments. Wear it for her engagement or sangeet with pretty chaandbalis.
A lehenga with a fashionably cut blouse and dupatta is a classic for weddings. The unstitched piece can be fitted to your size and it's just what you need for the bestie ki shaadi. Wear lots of chunky bangles and put on a maangtika to shine bright on your BFF's big day.
Still confused what to wear? Open up your wardrobe, and the first two things you get in hand, just mix-match and wear. For example - a high collared kurta paired with light colored structured pants looks so classy! A stylish and comfy pick, this one's sure to flatter all body types and will look absolutely fabulous with stilettos. Wear your danglers and you're good to go.
7. A royal look
As this is your BFF's wedding, you need to look different and pretty. A semi-stitched royal silk lehenga set is a show stealer. Heavily embroidered, this is one outfit that'll make you stand out and how! Slick back your hair in a tight bun, put on a tiny bindi and wear those pretty jhumkas. We swear, all eyes will be on you, girl!
8. Go for yellow!
Usually yellow and red are the colours which are seen the most in a wedding. While your bestie will be wearing a heavy embroidered red coloured lehenga, you can create a contrast with her and put on a yellow-coloured attire. A yellow anarkali will make you look all nice, bright and festive! You can totally wear this for her haldi ceremony or even the mehendi. Pair it with pretty gold flats, put on a bright lipstick and don't forget to flash your brightest smile for all those selfies!
9. Palazzo love
Love palazzos? Well, any kurta or an anarkali paired with a palazzo set is all you need for your bestie's reception. With a little embroidery and glamorous colour, this contemporary set is just as stylish as it can get. Soft curls, pretty juttis and a pair of chaandbaalis are all you need.
10. Wear white for a change
Usually everyone ends up wearing vibrant colour like red, green, blue, yellow or others. An elegant and sophisticated white kurta with a gorgeous printed skirt is definitely going on the top of your list to stand out from the crowd. This set is perfect for a delicate and dreamy look. Leave your hair open and pair it with delicate earrings.
