Anyone who has grown up in an Indian household would know that festivities and occasions are something that last all year round. As much as we all love to live in such a culturally charged milieu, it can be a little perplexing to decide what to wear when.
Let’s start with the one occasion that defines Indian celebrations- the big, fat Indian wedding! The first thing that you need to remember while putting together your look for a wedding is to keep it bright. Whites and blacks are a big no-no for weddings.

The safest option to go with for this occasion would be a saree. Go for something that’s neither too flashy, nor too bland, like this one:
And finally, for the one thing that keeps happening all year round- religious ceremonies. With the entire family gathered for celebration, you need something that’s decent, along with being stylish, and of course, traditional. The one outfit that scores on all these check points is the salwar kameez. Take a look:
