If your bestie’s wedding is just around the corner or if you are the bride-to-be and looking for some style inspiration, you have landed in the right place. We are presenting a style guide for a winter wedding wardrobe with stunning Indian wedding dresses that will help you turn heads and grab eyeballs.
If you have been invited to an Indian wedding this winter, fret not, we got you covered. From chic lehenga choli to traditional sarees, you can flaunt every type of Indian outfit during various ceremonies that last for a few days.
Go with Long Sleeves
During the cold season, it’s not a wise idea to sport sleeveless anarkali suits or lehengas and sarees with sleeveless blouses. Long sleeves add elegance to an outfit and are a saviour during a winter wedding.
We are crushing on this cherry red anarkali suit available at Like A Diva online. Embellished with exquisite zari embroidery, the floor-length ensemble with long sleeves is an ideal choice to slip into for a wedding reception.
For the Sangeet ceremony, full sleeves lehenga choli is apt. Slip into this swirling floral lehenga set and steal the show. Sequins and zari detailing add to the charm of this outfit. Complete the ethnic look with traditional jewellery.
For the Mehendi ceremony, you can adorn yourself with a mehendi green saree. Matching or contrast long sleeves blouse will complete the look.
High Neck Designs
The cold season is not the time to sport summery necklines, so you can opt for high-neck styles. An outfit with a mandarin collar will be apt for the season and will also make you look graceful.
Whether you choose to wear an Anarkali suit, palazzo suit, saree blouse or lehenga choli, make sure your outfit features a mandarin collar or any other style of neckline that is trendy yet covered.
This amazing sage green anarkali suit will steal your heart. It’s perfect for any Indian wedding ceremony, especially the Mehendi function.
Best Fabric for Cold Weather
Chilly winds can leave you shivering and it is the last thing you would want to happen to you at the next wedding you are slated to attend. So try to pick thick or dense fabrics such as velvet and raw silk for your outfits. Who would like to carry stoles or wear cardigans to ruin the style?
Go with the winter colour palette. Blue, purple, black, red are the most popular hues that look awesome in dense fabrics, especially velvet.
This look is the cosiest, comfortable and stylish if you do not want to end up clattering your teeth. You can sport an anarkali style long top with a front slit and team it with a lehenga. Complete the look with an extravagant dupatta.
Another option could be an anarkali top with both side slits paired with a lehenga or skirt. Mostly such anarkali sets come with a pair of pants, this would save your legs. Also, make sure that the lehenga has a cancan lining attached to it, this will add another layer and lend an extra volume to your ensemble.
Jacket style anarkali suits are ideal to make a style statement. Heavy work embellished jackets create a great wedding look. Lehenga with long jacket style top or kurti can be worn for the sangeet ceremony. You can even go with a velvet full sleeve jacket anarkali outfit for the pheras so that you can beat the chill without the need for a cardigan or a stole.
Banarasi Silk Saree
Indian sarees are popular the world over and a wedding is the perfect occasion to drape the most flattering Indian garment.
Traditional or designer sarees can be picked up as per your liking and can be teamed with a full sleeves blouse featuring a mandarin collar.
For a winter wedding, it is recommended that you shop for a Banarasi silk saree. Artfully woven with silk threads, it showcases magnificent craftsmanship that reflects in the aesthetic drape.
