An Outfit Guide for Your Perfect Engagement Look

Congratulations, it’s that time in your life when you’ve chosen the perfect partner for yourself. Marriage is a commitment for a lifetime, and we wish you only the best! Engagement is only the first step in a long line of events ending with a grand reception; even then, a new bride goes through multiple rituals which require her to be decked up at all times. An engagement is like a declaration of love and partnership that aims to last a lifetime. The Indian wedding industry is massive, and grand planning goes into each and every step. From the locations, the décor, gifts, invitations, and of course, the outfit, there’s so much to look forward to. An engagement is a perfect way to embrace this pious and auspicious blessing in our life. 

Whether you are a bridezilla or a bridechilla in the making, we’ve got you covered with the best engagement dress for bride looks. So, sit back and enjoy this amazing time of your life.  

Different Options for Engagement Outfits For Bride

We must immortalise this occasion with the best outfits; after all, the pictures we click will be with us for the rest of our lives. Here, we suggest a few looks that will help you ace the engagement and the photos. There is something for each of us, from sarees, lehengas, and suits. 

1.A Banarasi Saree:

A saree is always effortless and timeless: what can be more beautiful and classic than a saree? This is one piece of garment that will always look good and effortless no matter what! There are so many different weaves, patterns and textures available that one can never go out of options. We can wear the classic Banarasi or Kanjivaram or go for some eclectic and modern sarees like Patola or Bandhej. A Handloom Pink Gajji Silk Banarasi Saree with Broad Kadhwa Border is an exquisite piece that promises to make heads turn and leave everyone in awe. This broad border is unique and will leave everyone breathless. If you’re looking for something different, then a Handloom Dark Green Georgette Banarasi Bandhej Saree with Cutwork Weave is lightweight and bright. You can wear a beautiful contrasting red blouse.

2. A Salwar Suit is easy and breezy

One of the best things about a Suit Set is how easy it is to wear; one also feels easy to move if they don’t have the habit of draping a saree. There are many options in a suit; we can wear a kurta and pants, a suit with a gharara, a pretty Anarkali or a normal kurta and Patiala. We can wear anything that appeals to us. The handloom Brick Red Halter Neck Tissue Anarkali with Churidar and Embroidered Dupatta is a gorgeous piece; the red colour complements the occasion of an engagement, and the hand-spun tissue fabric is luxurious and regal. A Handloom Teal Chanderi Embroidered Lehenga Set with Mustard Organza Dupatta is yet another option for an engagement outfit. This vibrant and radiant option is perfect for your engagement; the unique colour combination is rather modern yet ethnic in its approach. Even though it’s a lehenga, it is not as full as the traditional options and, therefore, easy to carry as an engagement dress for bride

3 . Go all out with a lehenga

There is nothing more bridal than a lehenga. A luxurious and full lehenga is perfect for the engagement. The combination of a blouse with a full lehenga and a nice dupatta is simple yet regal. We can pair the lehenga with some traditional jewellery like Kundan or temple jewellery. The Rangkaat Handloom Pure Katan Silk Banarasi Lehenga with Pista Green Dupatta and Blouse is an eclectic combination; the beautiful pastels along with a minty green dupatta and blouse is a dreamy combination every bride would like to do on her engagement. This lehenga is also a great way to don the lighter colours before the day to wear rich reds and pink arrive. Yet another choice is the Handloom White Mughal Jaal Pure Katan Silk Banarasi Lehenga with Gotta Work Zardozi Dupatta and Blouse; this ethereal piece is perfect if you desire to look ethereal and angelic on your engagement. It’s different, and the richness of the Banarasi fabric truly takes the cake. Simple gold jewellery works well with the outfit. The zardozi work on the dupatta offers an extra layer of intricacy and decadence.

4. Layer your engagement outfit :

Layering your suit, saree or lehenga is important. It is a way to get the most out of your look and create a truly structured outfit. There are various ways to add an additional layer, one of them being through a cape. You can wear a cape or simply place it on your shoulders; a brocade blazer is also quite the celebratory option to adopt. If none of these options is available, then a simple shawl will always look elegant and smart. A classic Mustard Colour Handwoven Pure Pashmina Stole is an excellent way to add a layer to your outfit. The delicate needle embroidery on a soft and dreamy pashmina canvas will take the hearts of many. Yet another option is the decadent and luxurious Yellow Handwoven Pure Pashmina Shawl with Kalamkari and Sozni work. This Pashmina shawl is an heirloom piece and an excellent option to be a part of your wedding trousseau as well. The shawl can be gently draped over your sarees, suits and lehengas and add an extra level of luxury and richness to the look. These shawls work exceptionally well on chilly and wintry nights.
