Ask RTR: Indian Wedding

Brittany asked: I’m attending an Indian wedding this July and I’m not sure what to wear. I don’t want to purchase a Sari to wear once and she said a dress is fine. Any suggestions?


Thanks for your question, Brittany! Here’s the cardinal rule for a traditional Indian wedding: the brighter the better! So if you choose to forgo the traditional Sari, have fun with vibrant shades of red, yellow and purple. When choosing your dress, aim for a style that embodies the culture’s spirit through these saturated colors and vibrant prints or metallic embellishments — Matthew Williamson makes great Indian-inspired styles, and we love the festive paisley print on this Thakoon Dubai dress. For an Indian wedding, don’t skimp on the accessories. Remember that more is more, so pile on the gold, bronze and jeweled statement necklaces, earrings and bangles to accent your ensemble.
