There’s no denying that wedding season is indeed one of our favourite parts of the year. With all the dancing, delectable food, catching up with your crew and the general shenanigans, what’s not to love? But there’s a flip side to back-to-back weddings - the universal "What should I wear?' quandary. Luckily for you, we’ve put together a fail-safe wedding wardrobe handbook for you. So whether you’re attending your BFF’s grand palace wedding or celebrating your cousin’s nuptials, we have put together the perfect looks. Here's what to wear to wedding functions this season!

Hen Night

The hen night or bachelorette is the only underground wedding event where the bride can really let loose. Dress depending on what’s in store for her last soiree before the exchange of rings. Team a colourful tank with white shorts and gladiator flats for a yacht party, a sequinned high-low hemline top with skinny pants and heels for drinks at a swanky bar, and a kitschy dress for a private party in a hotel suite. The key is to keep it comfortable yet chic.

Vivid, breezy and colourful should be your agenda when dressing for a mehendi. A printed anarkali with churidar, smart tunic and leggings or a short kurta with a dash of embellishment are your best bets. Don’t go overboard with the embroidery, as the mehendi is largely a casual day or early evening affair. We’re crushing on shades like tangerine, lavender, burgundy and blush pink this season. Accessorize with statement earrings and avoid bangles to leave your hands free for the intricate mehendi designs.

POPxo recommends: Namrata Joshipura Mustard Yellow & Peach Churidar Kurta with Dupatta (Rs. 20,900), Indian by Manish Arora Pink Churidar Kurta with Dupatta (Rs. 13,950), Rohit & Rahul Magenta Asymmetric Hemline Tunic (Rs. 5,950),  and  Indian by Manish Arora Blue & Orange Anarkali Churidar Kurta with Dupatta (Rs. 15,950); all on Myntra

Go flirty and elegant at the sangeet - be it in a lehenga, anarkali or flared tunic - especially if you’ll be dancing on stage. You can also experiment with the au courant trend of palazzo pants worn with an embellished kurta. Girly colours like pink, coral and red are your best bets, while black works well if the sangeet is followed by a cocktail party. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something you can dance the night away in!

POPxo recommends: JJ Valaya Maroon & Beige Ombre Lehenga Choli with Dupatta (Rs. 75,000), Rohit & Rahul Coral Orange Asymmetric Hemline Salwar Suit (Rs. 12,500),  Indian by Manish Arora Pink & Black Anarkali Churidar Kurta with Dupatta (Rs. 14,950), and Indian by Manish Arora Multicoloured Chanderi Silk Churidar Kurta with Dupatta (Rs. 13,950); all on Myntra

First up, don’t steal the bride’s thunder by turning up in a siren-red outfit. A good ol' salwar suit won’t disappoint. Even if you decide to opt for a subtle outfit, use bold makeup to elevate the look. Opt for pastel shades for a day wedding and deep tones for an evening affair.

POPxo recommends:  Namrata Joshipura Blue Churidar Kurta with Dupatta (Rs. 25,000), Namrata Joshipura Women Beige Churidar Kurta (Rs. 19,500), Rohit & Rahul Coral Red Salwar Suit with Dupatta (Rs. 11,500) and Indian by Manish Arora Blue & Green Churidar Kurta with Dupatta (Rs. 14,950); all on Myntra

The reception is a good opportunity for some experimentation. A net sari and blouse is perfect if you wish to go traditional. You can opt for an offbeat blouse to give your sari a unique spin too. If you’re close to the bride or groom, go all out in an ornate lehenga. We’d advise a smart jacket style blouse for a winter wedding. And if you’ve had enough of Indian wear already, why not slip into a surreal, princess-like gown?

POPxo recommends: Ritu Kumar Rust Orange Embroidered Bridal Saree (Rs. 20,900), JJ Valaya Teal Blue & Burgundy Lehenga Choli with Dupatta (Rs. 90,000), JJ Valaya Cream-Coloured Embroidered Maxi Dress (Rs. 65,000), Ritu Kumar Red Bridal Saree (Rs. 19,990); all on Myntra
