Every girl has millions of dreams of that perfect day in her life: her wedding day! We are aware of the anxiety every bride-to-be goes through while selecting her wedding lehenga. But the struggle does not end there! Every bride wants to look perfect at all her wedding functions and she wants those perfect picture shots too! We bring for you amazing pre-wedding outfit styles inspired by our lovely Bollywood divas for different functions to add some more jazz to your very own wedding goals.
Trust us, they are just not lehengas and anarkalis.
1. Short Kurti and Maxi skirt
For your engagement, ditch the OTT lehengas and go for a short ethnic embroidered or embellished kurti with a flowing maxi skirt, just like Alia. You can also add a dupatta for a complete ethnic look and be that *ladki beautiful*. Add some contemporary statement maang tikas or mid finger rings and enhance your look with the sleek hairstyle. You can try this beautiful pastel skirt and style it with a heavy ethnic dupatta.
2. Heavy Ethnic Gown
All the brides reading this, you can save your gorgeous ‘Kareena wala lehengas’ for the wedding and the reception functions and choose some different pre-wedding outfit styles for the other functions. Switch to an ethnic gown like Deepika Padukone, which she is wearing in this snap. Choose some colors like golden, red, pink or any other bright color and your gown will be your dream outfit for sure. Ethnic gowns give a poise and elegance to your personality. Go for braids or buns for the hairstyle so that you carry this look with ease.
3. Gown with an Ethnic Trench
Ethnic gowns look royal and elegant, truly. Can we miss those beautiful gowns which the actresses flaunt in Bhansali movies? Even you can have your golden embellished gown stitched just like that of Anushka Sharma. You can also buy a ready made if you get one. This gown looks more attractive because of the maxi trench paired with it. Jewelry in the same color as of the gown will make your look more appealing.
For Haldi Function
4. Statement Blouse with Saari
The auspicious yellow saree or ghaghra is a must for the haldi function. You can glam up your look this day also and you can turn your simple saree to an elegant outfit by wearing a statement blouse like the ‘khoobsoorat’ diva, Sonam Kapoor. By statement blouse, we mean colorful, patch worked, mirror worked or simply a heavy and bright blouse. Make sure your blouse is heavier in design than your saree or ghagra. This statement blouse could be paired with a simple saree for the haldi function, making you the queen of pre-wedding outfit styles.
5. Dhoti Draped Saree
You can wear your saree by draping it in different ways and create some unique looks. When you need to wear that yellow saree at the haldi function, don’t drape it simply and be regular, instead, you can experiment with your look and drape it in a dhoti style, wearing jeggings or cigarette pants underneath in the same way as Sonam Kapoor. This would look sexy, sassy and you will be the coolest bride of the season with lots of outfit variations. Also, it is easy to carry! Pre-wedding outfit styles were never this hassle-free! Phew!
For Mehndi Function
6. Crop Top and Palazzos
Mehndi functions are super special for every bride. After all, a mehndi day photo shoot is so mandatory for all the social media showbizz. You can experiment with your look on this day by wearing some Indo-western outfit. Shilpa Shetty gives a perfect Indo-western outfit inspiration through this sexy embellished crop top and palazzos. This is a beautiful fusion look which is bright, bold and beautiful. Buy similar palazzo pants here.
7. Chiffon Shirt and Traditional Maxi Skirt
We all loved and adored Anushka Sharma’s outfit in the song ‘cutie pie’. You can immediately copy this look for your mehndi function and get that *atti fantastic tashan*. Style a plain chiffon full sleeved shirt, with rolled calves and an ethnic maxi skirt or ghagra. Wear some contemporary accessories to jazz up your look. This is one of the most loved and trending pre-wedding outfit styles for the brides, this season. Get a ruffled shirt here and style it with an ethnic skirt. This will look great.
8. Dhoti Pants and Short Kurti
Being minimalistic and pretty should be your fashion mantra for the Mehndi function because all you need to do is sit with your straight hands and feet and pose for the cameras. Choose some beautiful and colorful outfit for this day with new patterns and trends. You can wear a short ethnic embroidered kurta with dhoti pants to get an Alia Bhatt inspired look. Buy a similar patiala here.
For Sangeet Night
9. Cold Shoulder Top and Floral Maxi Skirt
We recommend you to wear something very pretty but something not so heavy for the sangeet night because it’s your function and you need to enjoy and dance and not get distracted by your outfit. Florals are very much in trend now and they look really beautiful. So, pair a floral maxi skirt with a cold shoulder top for the dancing night. If you wear a floral skirt, go for some loud crop top which must satisfy your sangeet outfit. Take inspiration from Shraddha Kapoor and go on dancing ‘Chham Chham Chham’ at your sangeet function. Shop the floral maxi skirt here and cold shoulder top here.
10. Ethnic Jackets
Ethnic jackets are very attractive and elegant at the same time and are the perfect outfit for the sangeet function because they are easy to carry and flaunt. Maxi ethnic jackets could be paired with leggings, palazzos or even straight fitted maxi skirt for the sangeet look. Deepika wears the perfect ethnic jacket in this look and looks very ‘lovely’. Shop your ethnic jacket here.
You can take inspiration from these styles and get it finalized in your favorite color, pattern, designs and fabrics. Try different kinds of outfits in your wedding ceremonies so that you look sexy and gorgeous in each and every function. Also, you should try different hairstyles to make a look more appealing.
Happy Wedding, girlies! <3 <3
