If the couple has chosen a beautiful historical city as their wedding venue, there’s bound to be some sightseeing involved. Opt for comfortable garb, like a chic cotton or linen kurti. Avoid heavy fabrics, as you will want to remain cool, calm and collected for all the walking involved. A bright hued kurti would be perfect for the wedding festivities.
At the Beach
A seaside destination wedding also calls for some fun on the beach! However, since you’re a part of the wedding posse, you cannot simply don your casual fare. Be a trendsetter in a colourful printed kaftan dress with embellished flat sandals. This flowy outfit will not only look gorgeous, but will also allow your skin to breathe. Finish off your look with a highlighter for that perfect dewy skin.
No wedding is complete without a cocktail party! This is your chance to go all out in a luxe gown. Choose a full-length gown for drama and an air of mystery. Sheer gowns are all the rage these days, so pick one in a colour that suits your skin tone and pair it with a bold lip colour. If you are the bride, stand out from the crowd in a full-skirted gown, in a powerful shade like red.
Brides, make sure your wedding trousseau is in sync with the exotic locale. Skip the traditional, heavy bridal lehenga and pick an outfit in a lighter, fresh colour-scheme. Look radiant in a sparkly lehenga in pastel hues like baby pink or peach. As for friends of the bride, go with the same ‘light’ theme and drape a beautiful net or lace saree in a bright colour.
We hope you enjoyed our tips on dressing up for a destination wedding! Just keep this in mind while you pack and you’ll be all set to make heads turn. Don’t forget to have some fun!
