Outfit - Rimple & Harpreet Narula
Festivities and lights are the flavour of the month. With many of us still nostalgic from all the 'shor sharaba' which the Diwali season brought in, it's now time to prep for this year's shaadi season. Wedding is one of the biggest festivals in the Indian community. Ever heard of the big fat Indian wedding? It's true! We Indians like to celebrate the happy day with full masti and swag. The wedding celebrations usually last 4-5 days. Its starts from Cocktail/Sangeet, then comes the Mehendi followed by the main Shaadi function.
With so many functions comes the stress of finding those perfect outfits. Every occasion has a special meaning attached to it and if you're a girl reading this, you've gone through the hassle of finding a good Indianwear boutique atleast once in your life. I remember those endless visits to Shahput Jaat when my cousin was getting married. What an absolute nightmare it was! Even though online shopping has made our lives a lot more easier today but I still feel nothing compares to the tactile feeling of trying your Indian outfit at a physical store. The drapes, the falls and the fit is the key to finding or rather investing in a good outfit.
This post is for all the lovely ladies who love the Shaadi season but can never decide what to wear for that upcoming Punjabi wedding. Let's start with the first function which is the Cocktail/Sangeet. It is a favourite with the youngsters of the family. From fighting to pick the songs to the rehearsals to the dance performances, it's one big party. Now how do you decide what to wear? This depends on a number of factors like who is getting married? How do you want to dress up? If there is a particular style you have in mind? When I pick my outfit for the sangeet, I usually go for a lahenga or an ethnic skirt. I feel they look really graceful while dancing on the stage. Also they look dressier than other traditional Indianwear. I'm a little old school when it comes to dressing for weddings and I normally choose not to wear cocktail dresses and gowns.
In this post I am wearing a Rimple and Harpreet Narula creation. The designer duo are one of my most favourites. Their garments are so intricately embroidered and they fit like a dream. I first discovered the duo at the India Couture Week 2014 and instantly fell in love with their designs. I love how every single piece has it's own story to tell. This anarkali jacket and skirt combination is from their collection 'Hiraeth', a collection inspired from the relics of Uzbekistan. This handwoven creation feels nothing less than royalty and the colours just makes the whole outfit stand shine. You can shop this look from their Defence colony outlet. Bright colours for Sangeet paired up with dangling Chandbalis is my all time favourite look for this occasion.
Get your look on point for the next Sangeet function with this post and stay tuned for our Mehendi
