Jai Ho /// What to wear to an Indian wedding

Fashion, Travel

In January I had the great pleasure of attending the most spectacular Indian wedding in New Delhi. Of course the question that plagued me for weeks before the trip was what on earth do I wear?? This is where I landed up…

Engagement party – I wore a beautiful gold, purple and pink Lehenga from well priced shop called Goldy Nest

Mehndi – Pyjamas. I was meant to wear a beautiful emerald sari but was struck down with dreaded Delhi Belly

Ceremony – For the morning event, I wore a fitted black and white dress from French Connection, sparkly gold Saint  Laurent shoes and a lilac pashmina.

For the evening event, I wanted to wear a gown with a touch of Indian glamour so added a pearl Maang Tikka (head jewellery) to a black BCBG long dress. I also wore my gold Saint Laurent shoes and a gold pashmina and a purple Burberry python clutch. 

Before going I received a list of rules, don’t wear white as it’s the colour or mourning, don’t wear black as it’s not fashionable etc. Women there wore every type of dress (traditional as well as western) in every colour…

Lesson learnt…wear anything as long as it’s fabulous.
