TYPES OF INDIAN OUTFITS
Indian Wedding outfits are incredibly fun to wear and filled with bright colors that will make you feel like you’re attending a red carpet affair. Following is a guide to some of the most common Indian dresses:
WHAT IS A LEHENGA?
- Cropped blouse (choli)
- Scarf (dupatta)
Lehengas, depending on their heaviness of embellishments and embroidery can be worn mostly at all wedding occasions - engagements, mehendis and sangeets (lighter embroidery lehengas) or weddings and receptions (heavier embroidery lehengas). These days you can also find some contemporary lehengas with capes and jackets.
WHAT IS AN ANARKALI?
Anarkali is a comfortable option if you don’t want to go overboard. They are very versatile, offer full coverage and are easy to wear. You can also wear it during any festive occasions such as Diwali Parties, Indian Baby Showers etc.
WHAT IS A KURTA & SHARARA SET?
- Dupatta or vest
The biggest difference between a Kurta and Sharara is pant style. Kurtas either have narrow (churidaar) or straight pant style where as Shararas have typically wide-legged, flowy pants. The Sharara outfit is a fun and playful option. It is best for a Sangeet, Mehndi, or Wedding event.
WHAT IS A SAREE?
A traditional saree is typically worn for the wedding ceremonies, but you can also wear a contemporary saree for the reception for a glam look.
