We guide you on dressing for a wedding reception and making heads turn all evening.
Weddings and after-parties are so much fun, but they can be really stressful, too. It’s not just the bride and groom who are under pressure to look great on their big day – even the guests must be turned out in their best. You’re going to mingle with people and then pose for photographs, so you want to look nice and be remembered as that stunning woman who stole many a heart in one evening!
So how do you dress like the belle of the ball? Here’s some help:
* Plan your look. Most women prefer Indian ethnic looks for wedding rituals and receptions. If you do too, you can get a range of clothing from Biba online shopping. There are many options in ethnic wear from Biba online shopping – try palazzos with embroidered kurtas, or a gorgeous Anarkali suit, or even a simple kurta and churidar set. Make sure the embellishment is striking and the cut of the dress is sharp. You can even go with a beautiful saree and a choli with a deep back. Or you can even try Western wear, but it is considered a little impersonal. However, if it’s a wedding reception for acquaintances or people you don’t know very well, you can wear a pair of fitted trousers and a glamourous top, finishing your look with heeled shoes.
* Buy your clothing and accessories online. Now that you have decided your look, it is time to shop for it online. Flip open your preferred shopping app like Jabong and look for Biba online shopping options in the clothing you want. Look for more than one option, in case you are buying separates rather than one set. Once you select the clothing that you like, check its size by looking up the size guide provided alongside. Each clothing has a size chart that gives dimensions for shoulders, waist, chest, hips and length of the garment in inches and centimetres. Once the clothes are added to the shopping bag, look for matching footwear and other accessories like jewellery and perfume.
* Get the right skin and hair care products. Apart from the clothing and accessories, you must also stock up on skin and hair care products, as also makeup. You want your skin to glow and your hair to shine on the big day. For skin care, buy cleanser, moisturiser, toner and sunscreen lotion. Use them every day till the day of the reception, so that your skin will be healthy and well nourished. Meanwhile, buy serums for your hair and scalp health, as also a good shampoo and conditioner so that it bounces with health. If your skin is in good health, you can apply minimal concealer and foundation to hide its flaws. Do buy makeup products to suit the reception timing (day makeup differs from night makeup) and your overall ensemble.
Now all that remains is to wear your new clothing, apply makeup, slip into your new shoes and spritz on some perfume. You’re so pretty already!
