My Best Friend’s Wedding: 18 Days To Go & I Still Don’t Know What I’m Wearing

  1. I have somehow never been able to wrap my head around a silk saree because I don’t think I can carry them off without looking too old. But I’ve seen a lot of my friends wear them effortless style and elegance, and look stunning! So I’m sure you also will be able to carry a silk saree well.
    And I LOVE the Anita Dongre blouse! Get that without thinking twice.
    Saying that, it is your best friend’s wedding, and there will be a lot of running around and dancing. If it were me, I would not opt for a silk saree because they become difficult to manage.
    Why not go for a sharara/lehenga/heavy suit instead??

    1. Thanks for all your suggestions! 🙂 If the sari is draped well, I can manage with all the running around. But I just need to wear it with flats, not heels. Otherwise I will be sitting in one corner, completely useless!

  3. Please break into the jootis before the mehendi to avoid crazy shoe bites on that day.
    One of my “closest friends” is getting married end of December. And I can totally relate to these posts. 🙂

      1. As we Punjabi’s do it, layer it with oil couple of days before you wear it! You can always use foot petals or insoles to prevent.

      2. I plan to wear my sangeet lehenga for the reception and drape the dupatta differently. I’m still unsure of the church wedding. I’ll let you know 😉

  4. Hey! Honestly I feel that you should stick to the backup options that you already have in your wardrobe for the Sangeet. 🙂 As for the ideal outfits and being a wedding blogger thing, I think you have a great sense of style and what makes us stand out is not what we are wearing (unless it is REALLY common) but how we carry it. So, you don’t really need to look for an ideal outfit as long as you have an outfit as per your style and one that you can carry off with elan.

    I liked the Anita Dongre blouse but since I don’t know how much it costs, I think you can get something similar made as well because it’s a simple one. Of course, if you buy this one, it saves you the hassle of going and getting the blouse stitched. So, both sides have pros and cons. 🙂

    Waiting for more fun posts in this series 😀

    1. Thanks for all your suggestions! Mansi is giving me both my new anarkalis just 10 days before the Sangeet, so fingers crossed it works out otherwise I’ll have no option but to wear one of my backup options 🙂
      Trying to find out the price for the Anita Dongre blouse. If I have to get it made from somewhere else, that will definitely be a pain because the place I get blouses made from is now shut, and Mansi has her hands so full she won’t be able to make me a blouse! Just keeping all my fingers and toes crossed at the moment…!

      1. Hi..If you are still looking for the Anita Dongre blouse..you can check out Goldy’s Nest in GK1..I ordered something similar from there in silk in fluorescent green today…with elbow length sleeves..the cost was about 4.5k

  5. Well for sangeet I think your Black anarkali will look great but I also love madam tinzin anarkali and needlelust juttis are must haves 🙂 To pair up with your silk saree Anita Dongre Top is good but If you want something different it will not give you that edge. I think Floral blouse option is good, customize it with a deep back neck and a string! Was browsing through facebook and found this, maybe this can work.

    1. I do love that black anarkali 🙂 but my friend is insisting I go brighter with my colours! Will go buy myself jootis next week, hopefully. And floral might not be a great idea after all – someone mentioned to me how the sari already has a motif print, so print on print might not go great together. I need some serious blouse help!

  6. I too wanted to buy from Sabya’s firozabad collection, but then I found out that the saree I liked was 3lac! From your options above, i would say strike off sabya’s saree coz they are just way too expensive.
