Cocktail Fashion This Wedding Season


Those who know Indian weddings know the whole gamut of ceremonies and the whole bustle around the multiple-day extravaganza. While we all know what we’d like to wear for all the traditional ceremonies, not so for the reception. Marked in flamboyance, the reception is usually the last wedding function. It is now common to have a cocktail party at the reception. The fashion apt for this function is western or indo-western gowns or flowy, flirty Georgette Sarees. Read more as we take this topic further.


Titles are changed and this is your first function post-wedding. This is the time to channel your inner maharani and let them know the fashionable side of you. From Low-key dressing to flamboyant, that you take depending upon the kind of function and what you’d like to wear.

Lehengas are the best bet for the new bride and the guests alike, and No I am not talking about the traditional ones. The designer ones with a modern twist will do the trick. Sequins are in and these sequins embellished lehengas in fresh hues are taking the internet by storm. Not only the new bride but these are quite a craze among sisters and the bridesmaids too. These light designer Lehengas are a blessing for the Shaadi season. Since you’d be getting invited to many weddings, the trick to saving some budget is to pair it with lighter or heavier jewelry to change the look. Other accessories that bail you out in swag are capes and collars. Match them with your lehenga to create a unique look and re-use the lehenga like a pro.

If you have got bored of the lehenga look having worn them for most of the functions, here’s the versatile saree for you. The sequins are so in and are worn in sarees, lehengas, and even kurtas. And boy they look chique! Two hoots for all the sexy colors that you get in sequined sarees. Try blunt gold or suave wine color for all the head turns. The fabric for this occasion is strictly something that flows like a georgette, Chinon, chiffon, etc. Yet delicate Organza with delicate embroidery paired with a heavy satin blouse and draped innovatively is your guide to ruling all hearts. It's sheer royalty. An elegant saree paired with beautiful embroidery around the neck of the blouse takes your fashion game several notches up. So does an embroidered saree that is tastefully paired with the choicest of jewelry.

Our blessings to the one who invented floor-length kurtas and front-open kurtas. These are the glam partners for dressing up for this cocktail party. These elegant, intricately embroidered open-front floor-length kurtas are the pick of the season, for these are classy and easy to carry after days of heavy jazzed-up looks and no rest. Whether you are the host or an invitee, this one is worth trying.
