This Wedding Season's Desi Bridesmaid Dress Code Guide
The wedding season is in full swing and you’ve likely been invited to be a part of the “I do” crew. Whether it’s your sister’s wedding or your best friend's, being a member of the bride tribe along with being fun and exciting is also quite demanding. The role requires you to constantly be on your toes while taking care of the bride’s needs. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t look good while tackling a bridal emergency! One thing to keep in mind while selecting your outfit is that it’s the bride’s big day, so let her be the one shining in the spotlight.
Here’s everything you need to know to pick the perfect bridesmaid outfit for yourself :
Stay Away From The Traditional Red

If there is a pre-decided colour scheme for the bridesmaids, choose an outfit to match that. If not, it’s best to avoid picking the traditional red colour as that’s always reserved for the bride. Choose from a plethora of colours from jewel tones to pastels and a lot more. Take a cue from Kiara Advani’s look and incorporate some shimmer and shine into your look as well.
Pick Lightweight Fabrics

There’s a lot of running around to be done and you don’t want to be weighed down by your outfit, do you? Plus there’s so much dancing you’re going to be doing. Pick lightweight fabrics that are easy to move in. Alia Bhatt looks easy-breezy in an aqua blue and yellow lehenga for a Mehendi function.
Say Yes To Fun Prints

Apart from fun colour combinations, you can also choose some beautiful print options on lightweight fabrics. Floral prints are the most popular but you can find geometric and abstract ones too. Take inspiration from Katrina Kaif’s look and wear a floral printed lehenga in the colour of your choice.
Swap Out Your Blouse For A Crop Top

Wear an ethnic crop top instead of a conventional blouse to save yourself from the hassle of draping a dupatta. Ethnic crop tops can be worn with everything from lehengas to palazzo pants. They’re perfect for the millennial bridesmaids. Janhvi Kapoor pairs a pastel blue, butterfly patterned lehenga with a ruffled white crop top.
Lehenga’s Aren’t The Only Option

There are a lot of silhouette options other than the lehenga. From shararas, saris, salwar suits and Anarkalis to cigarettes, palazzo and dhoti pants, take your pick. You could even choose alternatives for the conventional dupatta like capes and jackets.
