So you just got hitched and can’t wait to get in your pyjamas? Wait! There are many more post-wedding engagements waiting for you! Take a look at suggestions on what to wear as newlyweds for events after your big day.
On Your Wedding Reception
On the wedding day, you are expected to follow the traditional dress code, but for the reception, you can experiment a bit. Lehenga or Sharara made from light fabrics, such as chiffon, silk, or tulle, paired with a simple blouse and a sheer dupatta is a great option. Colours you can opt for are carnation pink, emerald green, peach, royal blue and beige. Get rid of pins and clips in your hair, and let it hang loose with soft curls and fishtail braids.
On Your First Formal Dinner
Saree is the best option for a formal dinner. Whether it is with your extended family, or with your work peers, the saree is a versatile, minimal and comfortable wear. Select the ones that feature exquisite and intricate work in embroidery, lace, silk, zari and zardozi. Fuchsia pink, rose red, black, sunset orange and tomato red are part of the colour palette that you can select from. As for the hair, tie it in a side bun, messy bun, or jazz it up with a milkmaid braid bun.

The key here is to look like a newly wedded bride, without taking away the attention from the actual bride! An Anarkali suit will help you achieve that balance. It is neither casual nor too dressy. If you are short and on the heavier side, a knee-length Anarkali would work best for you. And if you are slender and tall, then floor-length Anarkali dresses will complement you well. Shades that you can flaunt are lime green, gold, jasmine yellow, mauve, peach and magenta. Long and loose straight hair looks best with this attire.
