Destination Wedding: Style Guide | Wedding guest edition
An Indian wedding is a big affair! It’s no less than an elaborate carnival where the two families are having the time of their lives. Out of all the Indian wedding trends, destination weddings are something most people look forward to. It’s a great way to celebrate and relax at the same time. If you’re a guest going for a destination wedding, here are a few tips to ensure you look your best and catch those admiring looks!
Dress according to the weather
It’s always advisable to check the weather of the destination before packing. If the wedding is taking place at a tropical island, carry anarkalis and indo western gowns in light flowy fabrics. Fabrics like chiffon, georgette, and crepe are breathable and will help you stay cool. If the wedding is taking place in a colder location, velvets are your bestie. A velvet lehenga or jodhpuri are great as they look royal and are actually warm enough to not let the cold touch you.
Dress as per the code
There are usually wedding themes involved in a destination wedding. A dress code for all the functions is usually provided by the hosts. It’s advisable to follow the dress code as it is appropriate for the ceremonies. But if there is a certain color theme provided and you don’t have the outfit in the suggested colour, you can add an accent piece from the color family. For instance, if the color is blue, you can carry a blue dupatta with your lehenga and still be a part of the dress code.
Choose light accessories
It’s always a hassle to carry jewelry when one is travelling. Switch your real gold jewelry with imitation ones if it’s a possibility. It will ease out your anxiety of theft as well. Gold plated vilandi sets are an ideal accessory option. You can also pack statement earrings and kadas as they pair well with almost all outfits.
A destination wedding is a brilliant opportunity to relax and enjoy the festivities. So look your best and bask in the admiring looks of fellow guests with the help of the above tips.
