What Should a Guest Wear to an Indian Wedding?

Women can wear a traditional sari, lengha or any brightly colored dress with a shawl, while men can wear straight pants and a button down shirt in a bright color to an Indian wedding. Men can wear a suit to the ceremony, although bright colors are preferred to the traditional black and white of Western wedding attire.

Women can wear plenty of gold jewelry and gemstones to fit in with the festive feel of the wedding. For a sangeet, the traditional party before the wedding, bright colors, jewelry and one statement piece is appropriate for women. Men can wear loose fitting pants and comfortable button downs for all wedding events except the main ceremony.
