Being a bridesmaid is NOT an easy task! While you put your best foot forward to keep the bridezilla from flipping out, you’re also tasked with a million responsibilities as her BFF! Not to mention, you’re constantly hustling to make sure that you look fabulous for every single ceremony at the event. While we all look up to the Tinseltown divas to give us some serious fashion inspo, there’s so much to consider when you’re prepping to be a bridesmaid. After all, you never know who you might meet there, right? (wink wink!)
We know you’re swamped with bridesmaid duties, which is why we’ve compiled a series of looks that you could experiment with for the next wedding you attend. We’ve got your back gurl!
For the reception party, take inspiration from Janhvi Kapoor who totally slays the look with her sequined saree. The most versatile of all Indian outfits, you could drape the saree in a traditional manner or choose to experiment with it to get a little more out of your look. Pair the ensemble with statement earrings and minimal, dewy makeup! You could try our Contour De Force Highlighter Palette in Glow Genius to achieve a super-radiant look to match your shine!
Well, here’s the perfect look for the ‘life of the party’ BFF! Sonam Kapoor totally dazzles the crowd with this quintessential bridesmaid look. Vibrant, bold and the right amount of traditional, this look works perfectly for the ‘baraat’ ceremony. Pair it with thickly lined kohl eyes, slick middle parting and minimal jewelry, and voila! Try the Stroke of Genius Heavy-Duty Kohl in Black Magic to add a little drama to your look.
Katrina Kaif’s full-bloom floral look can instantly bring a smile to your face. Opt for different floral patterns for a summery-daytime wedding function. You could add on an embellished cape over the outfit or even reach out for a dupatta for a full-fledged look. That combined with some gorgeous contemporary jewelry, and you’re ready to steal the show! (after the bride, of course) You can pair it up with our Wonder Woman 24-HR Lip Lacquer in Vigourholic to get a subtle yet powerful look.
Boy, does she shine as bright as the sun in this flowy outfit! Alia Bhatt gives us the ultimate Haldi vibes in this pale yellow Anarkali suit. Not to mention, it’ll be super comfy for all the craziness that you’ll be a part of while applying haldi to the couple. Pair it with minimal jewellery, a small bindi and basic nude makeup. Try the Bling Leader Illuminating Moisturizer in Peach Poppin’ for a super-radiant finish without too much makeup.
Donning a statement look in this ultra-chic black lehenga, Sonakshi Sinha has already got our fashion sense gloating with joy. Super sexy, super trendy and super classy; there’s nothing more glamorous than a blingy-black outfit. Try this look for a sangeet or cocktail party! Don’t forget to try on those super-sexy smokey eyes with our Blend The Rules Eyeshadow Palette in Warrior.
Mixing the perfect amount of Indianness with the colour of royalty, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s outfit has a completely different vibe. Totally made for a gorgeous ethnic look during the pheras this could be your go-to outfit for an indoor wedding. Match it with long earrings and full-fledged makeup to complement the outfit. Pair it up with the Smudge Me Not Liquid Lipstick in Grape Drape to get a full-blooded burst of colour that will last you through the event without fading.
Trust Sara Ali Khan to pull off the most unconventional shade of green in the spectrum. Perfect for a Mehendi function (plus a few thumkas here and there) this strappy gharara should be on your list of must-have outfits. Simple, chic and trendy, this outfit is sure to pamper your Bohemian soul. You could skip heavy jewelry and bold makeup for this look and use a little mascara to amp up your no-makeup look though. Try the Uptown Curl Lengthening Mascara to instantly volumize your lashes to match your eye makeup goals.
While weddings usually demand a generous dose of bling and couture, Aditi Rao Hydari’s jacket style outfit totally defies this notion to display a minimalistic yet elegant look for any wedding function. Combine it with chunky silver or oxidized jewelry and you’re ready for the party! Try the Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick in Brandy Harrington to make your lips stand out in a simple ensemble.
