I am so super excited about this post! On May 18, 2013, I attended my first ever Indian/Hindu Marriage Ceremony, and it was for one of my co-residents, Nidhi, someone I absolutely adore and has become my shopping buddy and fellow foodie, and her lovely fiancee Bunty!
I definitely had to do some research to figure out what to wear to this ceremony. Some of the things that I learned as far as how to dress:
1. The blingier, the better. Lots of jewelry is worn by the bride and all of the female wedding guests
2. Try to wear a sari if you can. You’ll definitely fit right in.
3. Black and white are no-no’s. It’s all about BRIGHT COLORS!
Now as far as numbers 1 and 2 went…I was at a loss. As some of you may have noticed, I don’t usually wear jewelry as part of my outfit posts (or in my everyday life actually lol). And I definitely didn’t know how or where to find a fab sari for the occasion. But bright colors! I can definitely do! So I decided to compromise with a brightly colored dress with some blingy accents and go from there. Here’s the result!
Dress – Forever21 / Shoes – Burlington Coat Factory / Bangles – Target / Clutch – DSW / Scarf – TJ Maxx / Umbrella – DSW
I had such a good time and the food was AMAZING! I LOVE Indian food and there was sooooo much of it! I had no idea that you literally eat…ALL day! lol I was in heaven!
Wishing Nidhi and Bunty all the best in their new marriage (and lots of beautiful babies! lol)
2 down, one more wedding to go! Last post in the HCTWG trilogy is coming up on July 9th. But have no fear; there will be a new post on the blog next Tuesday 🙂
