There comes a time in a girl’s life when she starts receiving more invites to destination weddings than to sweet sixteen birthday parties. And if that’s you, it’s time to get your priorities straight.
No, we don’t mean you need to urgently find that 6 foot something guy who is going to put a Harry Winston on your finger! What is meant is that you need to get the perfect mere-yaar-ki-shaadi-hai
wardrobe. Here are five fabulous wedding outfits you can put together for your friend’s special day.
1. Adorable and Peachy
We might act like complete badasses durings every hour of the day but there is no way in hell we want any of the elders to think that about us. This perfect peach number by Gaurav Gupta will firstly, make everyone adore you and second & most importantly, make them completely ignore your acts of debauchery.

2. TImelessly Traditional
Trends come and go but you can absolutely never go wrong with the classic desi
-girl sari. Use a bunch of bangles and an old style clutch (yes, a potli
) to add a traditional touch and you’re good to go!

3. Lehenga Magic
Your collection won’t ever be complete without a totally out of the world lehenga
. And if out of the world feels a bit far fetched you can always settle for out of the catalogue! Keep the accessories to a bare minimum though; you really don’t want to risk outshining the bride.

4. Understated Genius
You know those weddings where you don’t even know the name of the bride and groom but you’re forced to make an appearance? This outfit is just enough understated for those particular occasions. Pair it with your favorite strappy sandals and hopefully the night won’t feel like such a drag.

, Rs. 7500; Pointed Filigree Necklace

5. Easy Peasy
Sure, one needs to be appropriately dressed, but we would be lying if we say that we’ve never wanted to just put on the first thing that comes to mind rather than spending hours over pros and cons of wearing at least 5 different outfits. This one is for those times. To put it simply, it’s just a maxi skirt with a crop top. Anything in the combination of gold and black just somehow screams Indian wedding. Also, don’t want to wear heels? That’s fine, why else were long skirts invented?
