Engagement fashion trends for the bride

Even though the engagement ceremony often includes only family and a few close friends, the bride still wants to look her best to remind her potential in-laws that she is quite the catch. Salwar suits, lehengas, gowns, and sarees are engagement-appropriate bridal attire, while some brides even wear palazzo pants and crop tops. Silk sarees are a mainstay of engagement ceremonies in the south of India, while georgette, net, velvet, or even Banarasi silk lehengas are favourites throughout the country.

The colour palette for an engagement outfit is more extensive than that of a wedding ceremony, as the bride can wear any colour she desires. There are no prescribed colour tones. As a result, most brides explore colours that suit their skin tones while looking for unusual and striking patterns. Brides can wear distinctive shades of pastels, reds, browns, and outfits in darker hues.

As with every bridal outfit, the engagement outfit will also have a limited amount of shimmer and shine in the form of zari, mirror work, or stonework. The elegance of the engagement outfit is often enhanced with single or multithread floral embroidery in booti or jaal designs. Since engagement sarees or lehengas don’t have many traditions, brides can wear lightweight printed geometric patterns that can be appropriately styled for other functions.

Engagement outfits for a bride’s mother or sisters

The bride’s mother, as with all older women in the family, traditionally wears a silk saree to celebrate the engagement of her daughter. This will differ by region and culture. Deep, rich colored-sarees with zari embroidery are a sure winner. Some mothers are also comfortable wearing tapered gowns, palazzo pants, suits, or lehengas that are styled to suit the occasion. The bride’s sisters can wear anything from salwar suits to palazzo pants and crop tops to gowns, depending on the occasion. The more formal the event, the more traditional and embellished the ethnic wear.
