What to Wear at a Tamil Friend’s Wedding!

Dress Ideas for a Tamil Friend's Wedding

Stepping into a Tamil wedding, especially a brahamin one, is a very royal affair. Hues of reds, golds, and all the intricate details are taken into account. Tamilians are known to be modest but very meticulous with the wedding details. Be it be, the rituals, bride’s outfit, her hairstyle, even the accessories selection is an elegant yet ritualistic affair. And it becomes even a brighter, if it’s your friend who’s getting married.
As the reds and golds represent purity and sensuality in their weddings, a bride is given a bright red and even pure gold palette color of silk sarees to choose from.

So what do you wear to a wedding where there are so many small details to think about? And if you are not a tamilian, lets show you some of the best outfits to wear for the upcoming nuptials .

Nichayathartham (Engagement)

As opposed to northern India, southern India loves to wear white for religious ceremonies. So you can always opt for a white palette that goes up to ivory. Silk looks beautiful without much embellishments. And a chiffon or georgette saree with an embellished blouse would look spectacular. Pairing it with pearls or even big jhumkis would complete the ensemble.
