Bridesmaids are unconstrained by set-in-stone traditions which gives them a permit to have much more fun than any bride ever could. Since the Indian wardrobe offers such a variety, the age old query of whether of what to wear keeps cropping up. What one really needs to worry about is what out of this extravagant range of ethnic wear and jewellery should one choose. Sari – jhumkis with necklace, lehenga- but what kind of maangtika, Anarkali – chandbalis or what?
Here are a few ideas we thought might help.
Haldi – Sit pretty in a salwar kameez
Being the first of many functions to follow, start simple by wearing a pastel shade suit with a touch of bling. Intricate dangler earrings, a gold beaded chain and in case you want to add a little more drama, a simple maangtika would be perfect. Shop Jhumki Earrings >

It’s time to let your hair down and dance the night away and more importantly to be comfy yet in sync with the latest trends. A fabulously effortless look can be achieved by donning a shimmery maxi dress. To add a bit of sparkle to your outfit team it with a pair of elegant dangler earrings and a statement ring.
