2 Events, 2 outfits. We will help you find the perfect ones.
For their wedding you will need 2 different outfits for their events. Per the invitation, the events are formal Indian , so we are here to find you the perfect options! Indian festive clothes are usually beautiful, unique, and easy and fun to dance in.
Since it’s in San Francisco in November, there is a wide range of fabrics and styles you can wear comfortably.
Saturday morning is the Ceremony: The Ceremony consists of many intricate symbolic steps and rituals for their wedding, this will be your chance to wear some fancy Indian attire. .
Saturday night is the Reception: This includes dinner and lots of music and dancing.
What to Wear
Women: Wear a Lehenga, Anarkali, or Gown. If you want to wear a sari, this is your time to do it since you will be seated for a good portion of it and saris are the most traditional Indian outfit. Do NOT wear red (the bride will be wearing red) or black.
Men: Wear your fanciest kurta. These will often have a bit more embroidery or gold work on them. Perhaps they have more of a collar or an embellished stole. Again, don’t wear red or black.
Women: Your most embellished/heaviest lehenga, anarkali, or gown. We often get guests worried that if they wear jewelry or a heavy lehenga they might be more done up than the bride...that will NOT happen. Trust us. Big earrings or other jewelry are also encouraged! You can wear black now and even red if you want.
Men: Suits are usually worn for this event. Otherwise continue the festivities with a heavier Sherwani.
Now that you know what to wear, have a great time!!
