Hi Anisha,

Thanks for writing in! If dressing sense is not your forte, I’d suggest going for simple cuts and fuss-free dresses. Avoid annoyances like ruffles, lace or poofy – not only are they high-maintenance but are also tricky to pull off. So go for A-line gowns, lehengas or saree-gowns.

Indian Wedding Dresses for Bride’s Sister

Here are some simple and elegant ideas for the wedding itself:

  1. A-Cut lehenga with metallic choli: Metallic cholis are easy to look good in, and they’ll also make you stand out, looking like the bride’s family. Go for pale gold, copper or moonlight silver.

2. Gowns are great for engagements and receptions. They are easy to carry and being dupatta-free will be helpful because you can run around doing wedding planning tasks (which get unavoidable, of course!).

3. Sangeet and mehendi are great time to try Indo-western outfits like saree gowns, long kurtas with long skirts, etc. You can also try dhoti with a peplum kurti.

Colors to Choose

Go for something that suits your skin-tone, and something you love wearing.

How to Accessorize

Matching heels and necklaces and/or earrings work well. They don’t need to be too heavy. Just go for what you’re comfortable wearing. Sometimes even a simple pearl necklace looks perfect! Add a matching clutch to complete the look. Avoid anything too shiny or tacky, although embellishments look good at weddings! You can also add a watch or bangles to match.

Hair & Makeup

Lighter makeup is always the way to go if you’re not much comfortable with anything too much. Just tell your makeup artist to go for lighter colors and keep it less. Buns, soft curls and straightened hair, all look great at weddings. Just go for what suits your face.
