So you're invited as a guest to the Indian wedding of the year and now you have to dress the part! Well, you're in the right place. We know it is really difficult to pick out your looks (Indian clothing options are endless, truly) but we have you covered.
What is a Sangeet / Cocktail Party?
The word "sangeet" means music party in Hindi. A sangeet or cocktail party is typically the last celebration before the wedding day of an Indian wedding celebration. The night starts with a few ceremonies and good food. Typically, the bride and groom's close family and friends perform dances to the latest Bollywood tunes. The night ends in a big celebration of dancing and music.
What do I wear to a Sangeet?
Since the theme of the sangeet is typically music and dancing (Bollywood dreams, rejoice), you must wear something you can twirl the night away in!
Colors: Bright colors are usually encouraged for Sangeets across all religions and traditions. Of course, you can wear dark colors as well.
Here are some of our favorite Sangeet looks:
1. Blue Meadow Lehenga by Chamee and Palak One of our favorite KYNAH best sellers, this lehenga is the perfect choice for a Sangeet (or any event for that matter!). It comes with a v-neck embroidered blouse and paired with a flowing georgette skirt. The best part is the dupatta is fastened at the top so you can easily wear it handsfree.
2. Teal Blue Floral Dhoti Set by Diya Rajvvir Another KYNAH favorite, the Teal Blue Floral Dhoti Set by Diya Rajvvir is a trendy yet easy set perfect for making a statement. The set features a high neck blue blouse with a draped pink shoulder paired with a pink draped skirt.
