Well Hello Darlings!
Is the mercury being kind to you this time?
You know what is really a tough spot to be in when the temperature starts rising?
It is attending an Indian wedding during this season.
Have you experienced being at a weddings and sweating profusely in your gorgeous lehenga?
Or touching-up your makeup every 15 minutes to make sure your foundation isn’t melting on your face?
What do you do when you’re expected to dress up in the most extra manner but can’t deal with all the hassles that a full blown Indian outfit comes with?
Don’t you worry, because we’re going to brave the elements to make sure you look nothing but stunning at the wedding and can dance your way to ‘Kaala Chashma’ while giving Katrina a run for her money (well, a girl can hope right?)
So let me talk to you about the top 5 things you should consider while dressing up for a Summer wedding.
#1 Wear White
No brainer isn’t it? I’m obsessed with classy monochrome tones that work beautifully under the sun, especially if the wedding is outdoors.
Plus you can select any kind of white you want from the color spectrum and make it yours.
My beautiful white raw silk lehenga is sponsored by Juhi Shah, an upcoming designer in India who has a strong clientele around the world.
If you don’t want to go for white, shades like baby pink, ice blue or pista green could prove to be elegant solutions too.
#2 Embrace Florals
What better time for you to indulge yourself in some floral fun? If you’re going for a piece that is monochrome, having floral motifs will only enhance the overall look.
#3 Fabrics Choice
Fabrics like Raw Silk, Plain Modal Silk, Chiffon, Organza Tissue Silk, Banarasi Silk can be made into your dream summer lehenga. The one I’m wearing is raw silk and although I was wearing it on a sunny day in Jaipur it managed to keep my body cool! That’s a big win!
#4 Venture Beyond Mainstream Outfits
I must admit that I have a soft spot for Lehengas, but if you’re the kind of girl who wants to break those mainstream barriers then kudos to you. Pick crop tops or dhoti pants, or long skirts paired with jackets or even a cape. Juhi Shah has a variety of clothing styles to choose from.

#5 Be Mindful About Your Makeup
Now the last thing we want is a face that’s got runny makeup, here are a few things I do to ensure that the sun isn’t a problem for me.
- Transparent primer – it creates a barrier between your skin and the makeup, perfect for summers.
- Sweat proof concealer – Another magic innovation that is a must.
- Steer clear of heavy foundation it’s the number one culprit in making your skin look cakey.
- Waterproof mascara – because weddings = getting emotional, so a girl’s gotta be ready.
