Cutting-edge fashion to slay the Indian-wedding scene

The wedding season is upon us and how! Every year, India not only decks up for its festivals, it also gorgeously dresses up for its weddings. When they say The Great Indian Wedding, they don’t mean it lightly. It’s all about the opulence and celebrations. In fact even when subtle, Indian weddings always exude royalty. So, how well prepared are you for this Great Indian wedding season? Got the trousseau you need or trying to piece together what would look best? 

Well for this season, it’s time to blend the traditional with the modern. And here at Kahva, we have curated some looks for you amalgamating indian ethnic wear to cutting edge fashion trends on the global stage. Power packed, gorgeous and regal with every step - that’s the look that we are going for this season. 

So, let’s take a look at some of the looks curated to slay:


For the love of Anarkalis

Anarkalis are as traditional as they come and let’s admit it - almost always the first choice in our mind when it comes to wedding couture. But, have you thought about how you can give your anarkali suit a great twist of the global? Let’s see. 

We suggest go with block printed anarkalis, because those will surely stand out. Perfect for those morning outdoor weddings, they blend in nicely with the flora around. Now, to glam up the look, opt for a long flowing chiffon cape or jacket. If it’s sequined it’s all the more better. And you can always opt for a nice tight hair bun with baby’s breath flowers tucked in nicely by the side. 

If you are thinking of anarkalis for the evening celebrations, then keep it bright, keep it gorgeous, go for heavy embroidery and of course heavy jewellery to complement the entire look. 

But wait, that’s not all when it comes to anarkalis. If you want to really make heads turn, you can always opt for a chikankari anarkali suit. Go for light pastel shades, especially for the morning celebrations like haldis. Keep it classy with a pearl set. High heels and chic clutch is all you need to complete the look


Regal with Kurtas

Kurtas for weddings? That too with a touch of the western? Is that even possible?

Yes, it is. If you have just the right accessories. 

Let’s start with the classic - festive kurta sets with dupattas. Straight A line kurtas with pajamas of a light shade, preferably sequined. Drape it with a translucent dupatta and you are set. Pear droplets or kundan pieces will go nicely with this combination. You can add an opulent broach pin as well to the entire outfit to bring out the royal side. And not to worry because you will find a range of tasteful best kurta sets with dupatta online at your Kahva store to take your pick from. 

Now, if you want to add the modern touch here’s what you can do. Kurtas and palazzo combinations are a rage. Go for a sleeveless kurta with a neckline that complements your features well. Keep the kurta bright and heavily sequined or embroidered. Block print kurtas will work well for late afternoon or sundowners. Keep the palazzo in a single colour. Complete your look with silver oxidised jewellery and silver jutis. Now, that’s an ensemble designed to turn heads. 

Another regal look can be created with kurtis, ideal for the opulence of Indian weddings. What you will need is a nice statement belt and a brocade jacket. Keep your kurta absolutely simple and of a lighter shade. If you want a royal touch then an embroidered neckline will work nicely. Now, pair it with your brocade jacket with the statement belt accentuating the waist line. Smokey eyes with a hint of glitter, a bold lip colour and a pair of high heels - that’s it. 


Block prints for the day

Weddings have events spanning across every hour of the day. More often than not, people really struggle to decide upon what to wear for the morning celebrations. Well if you are fond of block prints and anarkalis, then combine them both together! Opt for a hand block printed anarkali suit party wear and pair it with a dupatta. Depending on your style opt for oxidised jewellery or a dainty set of pearls. Both high heels and flats will go nicely with this ensemble.


With that touch of heritage

Bandhej or Bandhni dye is one of the oldest forms of dyeing in India. And the best part - they make amazing choices for evening wear for Indian weddings. Go for very bright colours and embroidered necklines. Fearlessly go for red, because that will surely stand out. Kundan or gold jewellery works really well with bandhej. And of course, a long flowing dupatta. There, you have your classic Indian look. 

Staying fashion forward doesn’t mean you disconnect from your roots. Our wedding 

festival out fit looks are all born out of the Indian soil and curated for those who celebrate their own culture and is open to the many possibilities that this global village today presents us with. 

Enjoy a Great Indian Wedding Season!
