How to Dress for a Summer Wedding – Part II

The night parties during a summer wedding, that’s a breather from the heat! You can finally bring out those heavy outfits kept aside.


The Sangeet is fun for everyone! If it’s coupled with the mehendi function, then that’s one outfit less to ponder about, but if not?

The outfit: A traditional Indian sangeet calls for your midnight blue sari gown or your emerald green/burgundy lehenga. Are you going to be on the stage? Wear something striking since you don’t want to look dull and blend in the background in your dance on stage.

Rent: Rs. 11,500

The jewelry: Your classic kundan jewelry is what you pick to match your lehengas and sarees for this occasion. If you’re expecting a long night on the dance floor, you may want to pick out your costume jewelry so you don’t keep checking your ears for fear of losing an expensive pair!

The Cocktail would be a guests’ favourite function to attend. Everyone’s got their best outfits on here.

The outfit: Flaunt a cocktail gown with some stunning cuts. If you’re really interested in pushing the style envelope, a crop-top and skirt, sharara-jumpsuit or pant saree can look really chic too.

The Jewelry: Bring out your diamond jewelry to pair with those cocktail and sari gowns. It’s the night where your bling isn’t too blingy!

The reception is a celebration of the commitment the couple just made to each other, and also the one function where everybody’s stamina and enthusiasm has started to fade.

The outfit: You want to dress formally, but you want to stay clear of the high necklines and full sleeves in this heat. A saree may not be in everyone’s comfort zone and lehengas seem too done by this function! We still have our floor length anarkali gowns to opt for! An elegant anarkali gown with mildly heavy embroidery can give you that formal look with a trace of tradition too.

The jewelry: This is your chance to wear your heaviest jewelry, the sets you would ordinarily keep away from the dance floor. The guests at this function aren’t pre occupied with sangeet dances, mehendi on their hands or the rituals of any ceremony. This is the party to mingle, so look your best!
