Wedding season is here, and so is all the fun, dressing up, and shopping for the events. Whether you’re in the bridal party or a regular guest, what to wear is always a question. Lehengas and sarees are always a safer option but if you’re bored of the same old drapes, there are so many other options to choose from.
Depending on your budget, and style preference, you can opt for shararas, gowns, kaftans, or coord sets. If experimenting is not a problem, we suggest giving a brocade three-piece suit a shot, to stand out.
Here are 7 outfits beyond lehenga to wear to a wedding
1. Breezy floral skirt set
Channel your inner bohemian goddess like Janhvi Kapoor with a skirt set in a breezy fabric for day events like haldi or mehendi. Effortlessly stylish, the outfit from Saaksha and Kinni has been minimally styled, letting the pattern and a chunky neckpiece be the centre of attention.
For footwear, go for gladiator heels or strappy flats, accessorise with a potli bag, and you’re good to go.
2. Good old kurta set
Nothing beats the charm of a good old kurta set, and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s beautiful turquoise kurta set from Devnaagri is proof. Styled by Lakshmi Lehr, the actress paired the set with beautiful silver jhumkas from Silver Streak Store, keeping it elegant and poised.
3. Floral rhapsody
Being a bridesmaid comes with its own set of duties, the first one being looking good. This Anamika Khanna set on Rashmika Mandanna, bright and beautiful is just what you need to make a statement at the wedding.
We love that the actress has paired it with a messy updo, and kept the jewellery minimal. With glowing skin like that, keep the makeup simple.
4. Classic anarkali for the win
Perfect for a mehendi or haldi event, this Puneet Balana anarkali set worn by Karisma Kapur is what sartorial dreams are made of. The actress has styled the gorgeous green outfit with long dangling earrings, and golden kolhapuris, keeping it chic.
To add some more glam to the look, switch the flats for metallic heels.
5. Bejewelled glamour
For events like cocktail parties, opt for something form-fitting like this Club London dress worn by Malaika Arora. The actress who barely ever misses with her fashion choices, paired the solid dress with jaw-dropping jewels from Sunita Shekhawat, and Christian Louboutin's embellished Goldora heels only add to the drama.
6. Androgenously regal
Bend the gender norms, and make a statement like the actress Poorna Jagannathan does in this Anita Dongre Benarasi Silk Jivin Sherwani. Styled to the tee, Poorna wore this ensemble to Diwali celebrations at The White House and made fashion lovers go crazy.
Androgenous and still in a softer shade like pastel pink, this outfit is really the best of both worlds.
7. Sharp in a blazer set
Perfect for a winter wedding, this Son Chidiya cropped blazer set from the recently launched bridal collection from House Of Masaba is hard to miss. While the collection mainly focuses on brides looking to go beyond traditional red ensembles, it certainly has interesting pieces for wedding guests too.
Keeping her hair straight parted, Kareena Kapoor Khan, goes for a subtle glam makeup look, letting her outfit be the talking point.
