Indian weddings are all about chaos and craziness coming together magically to culminate into this big memorable affair for all involved. From last minute shopping, ups and downs and the chaos, your sister helps you sail through everything till things finally falling in place. From late night songs & dances, giving you secrets from the bachelor party and helping the coming together of two hearts and families, your sister is right there, doing it all for you. Its Sisters before Misters, right girls? So, go on, help her find the perfect outfits for all the functions of your wedding :
1. Sister of Bride Outfits for Mehendi Ceremony
When it comes to Indian weddings, it is the next in line. the sister of bride, that people watch out for. Apart from the bride of course! She’s the one who’s not restricted by the wedding rules. She can wear what she wants, follow trends and be experimental. Usually, mehendi ceremonies are at home and if not clubbed with Sangeet ceremony, you can opt for simple outfits like a palazzo and kurta combination or a dhoti and top combination, like seen below. We all love lehengas, but let’s keep them for the sangeet 😉
2. Sister of Bride Outfits for Sangeet Ceremony
Lehengas are best for Sangeet ceremonies since they have a lot of volume (ghera) so that when you dance, the lehenga twirls around to create a beautiful sight! Opt for pastel hues, lime greens, blush pinks and mints with subtle embellishments so that you don’t out-do the bride! Experiment with the necks of the blouse. Try halter necks, illusion neck, deep backs, deep v’s or deep front key-holes! After all, you can’t be as experimental this when you’re a bride. 😉
Try subtle floral printed lehengas that are contrasted with embellished crop blouses or cape blouses. Cape blouses with lehengas or sarees are currently trending and we definitely recommend you to try out this trend.
3. Sister of Bride Outfits for the Pheras
Colours like sunshine yellow and orange red are perfect for the Pheras. Opt out of traditional anarkalis and choose a lehenga and kurta combination or lehenga and short anarkali combination. The silhouette is playful and is perfect especially if you are the younger sister because we believe that your outfit should suit your age.
4. Sister of Bride Outfits for the Reception
Gowns, Sarees and Lehengas are usually preferred by sisters for the reception. Do it with a twist! Pair your gowns with long jackets. This trend was seen in Rohit Bal’s collection at the recent Lakme Fashion Week 2016 and is a must-try. Remember Aishwarya Rai’s recent Jacket-Gown appearance at Cannes?
We love it when Indian silhouettes are worn in new avatars with global influences. Opt for lehengas with off-shoulder peplum blouses or palazzos with a long asymmetrical top showing off the midriff in muted colors like greys, blues and blush pinks. Avoid too much bling, let the bride have it. Instead focus on embroideries, cuts and silhouettes. Go for minimal accessories to lend a dreamy and glamorous feel to this look.
Do the unusual with these legging-sarees. The belted silk sarees with leggings can be worn with an off-shoulder blouse or a jacket blouse or a simple full-sleeve blouse.
We hope we helped you in choosing the right silhouettes and adapting the latest trends!
