Here to help you with the Indian Wedding Attire


There is one thing that Indian weddings all have in common: colour!

Indian wedding guest outfits should be bright, festive, and rich in colour. 

Men’s Attire:

Kurta is a light, loose, collarless tunic that falls to about the knees.  It comes with matching pants.  The kurta can be worn alone or with a sleeveless waistcoat (called a nehru jacket). 

For an indo western twist:

Men can wear a collarless shirt with a colourful Nehru jacket and chinos / trousers.

The Lehenga

A lehenga is another popular option, but unlike a saree, this is typically a two-piece outfit consisting of a crop top and full skirt. This outfit is Sonum’s favourite – most comfortable and easy to wear!
