All the girls out there, we’re sure you can totally relate to this. Deciding what outfit to wear for which function is really exciting obviously, but tedious as well.

What to Wear to an Indian Wedding as a Female Guest
So to spare you of all your troubles, we have bought to you so many more types of outfits that can be worn to an Indian wedding, apart from the monotonous Anarkali that people wear every time.
- Half Sarees
Wearing a saree is a difficult and time consuming task, and so we have bought to you the concept of a half saree. Just wear a long skirt and a really pretty looking blouse, and then wrap the chunni around and drape it just like you wear a saree. It not only is a convenient method, but also looks gorgeous.
- Cape with Lehenga
Cape with lehenga came into trend when Mira Rajput wore it to her reception. This trend is slightly different from the usual blouse and lehenga, and wearing a cape instead of a blouse helps you give a bit more of a royal look. So, if you feel like looking like a princess, this outfit is a must wear.
- Long Kurtas with Palazzos
Kurtas are one piece of cloth that can never go out of fashion. So here, we’ve mixed Indian, with Indo-western and come up with a really pretty mix of a long Kurta paired with Palazzos. Just put on a really colorful kurta and team it up with plain palazzos or vice-versa. Trust us, they are perfect for all types of functions and amazingly comfortable too.
- Dhoti with Peplum tops
Peplum tops are the fad of the year. If you pair a peplum top, with a contrasting colored dhoti, it looks unbelievingly adorable. The dhoti is back in fashion, and it gives a tint of the 90s in your outfit. If you accessorize this outfit well, you can surely pull it off at a wedding.
- Crop Tops and Long Skirts
This is one outfit which makes you look taller and leaner. Wear a beautiful georgette crop team, preferably with three fourth sleeves, and a printed designer long skirt. You can easily wear heels beneath the skirt too.
- Long Kurtas and Lehengas
People are a bit skeptical about this outfit, but Kareena Kapoor flaunts it a lot and we’re sure so can you. Since it is already a bit too much, we suggest you leave out the additional accessorize and just pair it with a bright clutch, and you would get the perfect look for a wedding.
- Jackets with Shararas
Shararas are one outfit that look really pretty and goes with almost everything. Be it kurtas, tops, capes or jackets, it looks nice with either of them. Shararas teamed with jackets of the same color give a really formal look and are perfect for an evening outdoor wedding sort of a thing.
- High and low Kurtas with Churidar
High and low are the new form of Kurtas in town, and are basically known for being asymmetrical in nature. It is cut out high from the front while low from the back. It is basically a international trend, and dresses were usually worn like this. Slowly this has moved to Indian kurtas and can be teamed with Churidars and Salwars too.
- Draped Kurtas
Usually what we wear is a A-Line or a straight kurta, but to add some twist to it we have added drapes at the end of the kurta. This gives it a good fall, and even though it is just a modification of the normal kurta, but it gives you a different look altogether. There are different types of draped kurta like the dhoti drape and the asymmetrical drape.
- Short Kurta with Patiala
If you want to have a total Punjaban look then Patialas are the best. Just wear a short kurta over it and there, your look is done. Preferably, the patiala should be plain, with the kurta can have a lot of colors and embroidery work done on it for the perfect look.
So all the girls out there, don’t be boring and experiment with your clothes. The next time you go for a wedding, we hope our article on what to wear to an indian wedding as female guest helped you figure out styling for wedding and you can wear one of these outfits for sure.
