Tips for Attending an Indian Wedding
Many first-timers wonder what do guests wear to an Indian wedding, so that they can dress themselves accordingly. While there is no specific dress code at Indian weddings, dressing modestly is a must, meaning no bare shoulders and bare knees. For female wedding guests, a traditional sari or lehenga is perfect to show some respect to the religious wedding rituals, but it doesn't matter if you don't have. For men, suits and sherwani (a long coat-like garment) are fine.
Western wear for Indian wedding ceremony is also acceptable. While for men, it is preferable to wear more colorful button down instead of white one. For women, avoid short skirts, and tight or revealing tops; and adorn your suite with brightly colored accessories.
When it comes to the color of clothes, always choose bright colors, which are always welcomed at this auspicious occasion. But try not to wear bright red, which is traditional reserved for the bride. Black and white colors should also be avoided as they are considered as colors of mourning or bad luck.
Jewelries are also very important part of Indian outfits. Bindis and bangles are most common jewelries for Indian wedding guests. A pair of chand balis or jhumkas is good adornment for your ears. Necklace with Indian touch, even a simple gold chain with a sparkling pendant, is perfect accessory to adorn your neck. Payals and mang tikkas can also be your choice to go with your wedding sari or lehenga. For male guests, choose a gold chain or jewelled buttons to make your outfit complete.
