Things are looking differently in 2021- because of “He who must not be named” (If you don’t get the reference, we cannot be friends)—so, Keeping all that in mind, what to wear to an Indian wedding has changed too. But the excitement is still the same! The thrill of lining up your outfits for pre and post-wedding festivities is like serotonin.
Here is a quick brief of my outfits as a bridesmaid at an Indian wedding this season.
DAY 1- Haldi and Pelli Kuturu
The color theme for the day was yellow. And, if you know me, then no extra points for guessing what I did with my mom’s Uppada silk saree. I got it stitched into an anarkali by Takshati Shade Story. They did a fantastic job with it, and I am not even one bit exaggerating. So, it would be best if you guys gave it a try.
I completed the outfit with pearl accessories since I am into anything pearls these days. I purchased the necklaces from Sri Krishna Pearls, Somajiguda, and the earrings I picked up from HI-LIFE Exhibition; the stall name is Traditional Jewellery. Unfortunately, they don’t have a social media account, but they mostly showcase their products in exhibitions. Keep an eye out.
DAY 2- Raathi kutnaalu and Maila Polu.
I don’t want to get into the nitty-gritty of what these Indian wedding functions are about because that would make this post way too long. But, I think most Telangana weddings have these, and people living in this state might be familiar with it.
The event was very low-key hence chose a simple outfit and accessorized it. This skirt is again stitched using my mom’s Garden Vareli’s saree. Navya Dachepally’s brand stitched this for me. I paired it with an off-white crop top from Max Fashion, and the kundan pearl necklace is from The Trinkaholic.
DAY 2- Eduru kollu
This outfit was sweetly gifted to me by my in-laws. I purchased it from a store called “Shilpa” in Banjara hills.
DAY 3- D DAY.
Would you believe it if I say that this half saree is from my school days? I think my mom purchased this when I was in 8th Std. Then, of course, I got the blouse stitched again. DUH! The blouse piece is made of pure silk, which I got from the general bazaar and dyed at the same shop and stitched by Takshati shadestory again.
