Did I just mention that November is here? My oh my 2016 is running fast! Even Diwali is over. But the most happening part of the year is left. Did you get a hint? Yes its the wedding season! Come November and a host of soirees are there to be attended and celebrated.
|I loved donning lehengas for attending friend's weddings!|
I may be married for almost six years now but I have loved attending weddings since I can remember! The best part about weddings? Dressing up for the occasion. And if its a near one's wedding, then you have a host of ceremonies to attend. That means you need a wardrobe full of ethnic wear to rock these ceremonies.
This November I have two school friends's wedding coming, a colleagues's brother and a close family friend. That means I am engaged half of this month attending ceremonies. That also means I have to figure out my ethnic wardrobe. For me the easiest yet the chicest form of ethnic wear is the Lehenga.
A typical fat Indian wedding consists of a series of ceremonies like The Sagan Ceremony, Roka ceremony, Mehendi , Sangeet, Cocktail Party, Reception and the actual Wedding ceremony. All these ocassions require different levels of dressing both for the bride and groom as well as their guests. So here I am rounding up my favourite kind of Lehengas to be worn in different ceremonies.
1. The Sagan Ceremony:
This is a less traditional ocassion and the bride usually opts for an Indo Western outfit. Hence her guest too can experiment with her wear. For 'less traditional lehengas', look up here.
A bride's close friends are invited to this soiree. I prefer a no frill no fuss no dupatta lehanga as one needs to remain free and mobile. After all the friends' palms are adorned with henna too. Find this no fuss lehenga here.
A not heavy yet a beautiful and fancy Lehenga. Find it here.
4. Cocktail Party// Reception:
The fanciest and chicest lehenga to be worn on this day. Nor too traditional, yet still rooted to Indian origin. Find this chic lehenga here.
5. The Wedding:
The heaviest and the most traditional Lehenga has to be saved for this ocassion. A combination of traditional colours with Indian embroidery does the trick. Find this gorgeous Lehenga here.
