Look Ethnic For The Engagement Party
The couple being hyped and happy about their wedding announcement, engagement is just the beginning of celebrations and for a party like this, you need to keep at the edge with traditions and modernity! Antiques with a twist of contemporary sparks or statement Kundan piece with few pearls will work the best paired with Shararas Suits and Ruffled Sarees. But if you are someone opting for a full Co-ord set with crop tops and skirts you can catch the light of the event with some unique & expressive zircon sets.
Having sorted with the necklace set, you can always choose to complete your look with a classic set of bangles framed with gold-toned ones or opt for a graceful bracelet with a big circular ring. The life-saving tip here would be not to style more than 4 unique ornaments for an engagement party look. Necklace, Earrings, Kada And Ring is enough for an engagement ensemble.
Accessorize In Style For Sangeet
The most musical event at a wedding filled with laughter and joy is Sangeet a tradition where you have the highest chance of getting captured in-camera while you are busy grooving for a popular wedding song or twirling with your Anarkali lehenga for an Instagram story. The only way to adorn your sangeet look is by styling just 5 ornaments, Maang Tikka, Earrings, Kadas, Blingy Finger Ring & A Heavy Payal. Just these ornaments put together in sync will take your look from 0 to 100 in no time! Another option of these 5 ornaments could be Maang Tikka, Earrings, Hathpan, Payal and a Simple Kamraband to go along with your waist for the beats.
One tip around styling for Sangeet is to go big on accessories as it would be the right event for you to flaunt those rare ornaments without stealing the Bride’s thunder!
Go Traditional for Varmala Or Muhurtham
