A haldi ceremony is a cause for celebration at both the bride’s and groom’s homes. Traditionally haldi is a staple in all Indian homes. However, during a wedding, the haldi ceremony signifies the casting off of nazar (evil eye) and ushering of prosperity for the bride, the groom, their families and all present. The colour, yellow, plays a significant role in the haldi ceremony.
The best occasion dress for a haldi ceremony for a bride-to-be is a simple salwar kameez or a lehenga in light colours. White, yellow and cream traditionally colour the haldi dress for brides. For a person who is attending a haldi occasion, a yellow dress for the haldi ceremony is apt. Ideally the haldi outfits should be Indian attire, such as a haldi lehenga or salwar.
Style tip: A heavily embroidered choli or blouse with a simple net skirt in yellow is a definite style statement. You can even pair a simple saree with an elaborately embellished blouse.
