  1. The Crop-top Lehengas

As you must have seen, girls are flaunting their bellies with chic crop-top lehengas, which not only give a traditional look but adds a glamour quotient. One can opt for plain and printed ones with a heavily sequined dupatta for Sangeet or Mehendi, or try out a heavy look for weddings with sequins, zari work, crystal or stone embellishments. For the plain printed lehengas, one can choose quirky colors to up your style.

2. Sarees 

Sarees are a must have in traditional Indian weddings, but one can experiment with their look by altering the blouses in an innovative way, which totally changes the feel of your personality. Boat neck, off the shoulder, back patterns and collar neck are some examples of the blouse patterns that one can use to add a layer of grace to your look. A georgette or chiffon sari can suit any occasion.

3. Anarkalis

Anarkalis carries its roots way back to the Mughal era and the enamor of this wear still graces the bridal wear section in India. One can choose the full-length Anarkali dress flow till the ankle or more) for wearing on bridal occasions and the best works being zari, stone embellishments or sequins, while most are opting for floral designs as they add shimmer to your look.

4. Patialas

It is the most bright and vivid part of Indian wedding because seldom do we see girls or women not wearing Patiala for weddings. It gives the much needed live look to one’s personality and one can opt for block zari work on Patiala. Too much of shimmer in the dress could overwhelm and so a balance must be checked for.

5. Palazzos

Apart from being a daily sight in offices and public transport, palazzos can rock your outfit on weddings. They express freedom, glam, beauty and panache, all at the same time. I wonder if you would miss wearing one at any wedding. Remember the one which Deepika wore in the Delhi-wali-girlfriend song? Wasn’t her look glamorous? One can team the Palazzo over a heavily sequined crop top or long Pakistani kurti or a short kameez to achieve the look.
