It’s officially wedding season which means it’s time to bring out all your favorite ethnic Indian outfits. I love Indian wear but I do think that it can get very expensive sometimes. With so many events to attend, there’s only so much you can buy in which case, renting becomes an amazing option. You can pick from a multitude of designer wear for every different function without spending much.
That is exactly what I’ve done in this post. I rented two beautiful garments from Stage3 ‘s website, one for the cocktail event and the other one for the wedding. Both the garments are very easy to carry(which is always my priority) and are simple yet stylish. Weddings can be really hectic so choosing an outfit that is comfortable is going to save you a lot of energy!
For the wedding outfit, I went for pastels. A nice mint-green, pleated lehenga paired with an embroidered peach blouse coupled with a printed dupatta is what instantly grabbed my attention. Despite being a lehenga, the design has a very modern feel to it. The rich work on the collar is a blessing since it almost eliminates the need to wear any heavy jewelry.
I went for a simple mang-tika along with some thick, embellished bangles and hath-phool(hand harnesses). You guys know that I love to balance out my looks with hair and makeup so I kept the hair poker straight(basic) and went for very subtle makeup. I did play on the eyes a bit by adding some beautiful falsies but kept the rest of it pretty neutral.

Cocktail functions involve a lot of dancing a lot of booze(well, for most people) so outfits that give you the freedom to move are the ones that you should go for! Sarees can be really complicated if you’re not used to wearing them. A pant saree is the perfect fix for such situations. It’s a modern twist on our beloved ethnic wear and I absolutely love it!
For the cocktail event, I went for a very sleek and sexy look. I took an ultra modern pant saree to keep it monotoned but went for a pop of color on my lips. The entire saree is jet black with a grey panel on one side. It comes with a full-sleeved blouse and the outfit in itself is a showstealer! I added some statement earrings and two chunky bangles while keeping the look very sleek and minimal.

That was it for this post. I hope it helps you with all the confusion around Indian wedding related outfits. I’ll be back with some DIY(mix and match) outfit ideas that can you easily pick up from your own wardrobe. If you have any queries, you can always drop me a message on my Instagram/Facebook Page. I’d love to help you with it!
Until then, lot’s of love.
