The engagement ceremony is many of the first events, where the bride and the groom are presented together. It is the first step towards the bride and the groom being tied into the wedding harmony.
For the bride, this ceremony is an amazing opportunity to experiment with Indian dresses as this event is not bound by any traditions or customs when it comes to the outfits. So, it could be a floor sweeping anarkali, fusion saree or a lehenga choli.
This event is where you can go all out and try new styles. If you are looking for options, here are three stunning Indian dress, hair and make-up looks for an engagement ceremony for the bride-to-be give to you by Sahibba K Anand.
The first look is the traditional look. You can opt either for a lehenga or for even a pre-draped saree. Sarees have been a popular choice for the engagement function. A pre-draped saree saves you the efforts of getting the drapes & the final look right. It will accentuate your curves and help you make a fashion statement! You can team this traditional look with soft curls, green and copper tones for those eyes. And let your eyes do the talking. Finish off the look with the hottest trend this season, hot pink lips.
The second look is about being fun and girly! For this look, you can choose between a floor-sweeping anarkali and a gown with an Indian accent. If you think a gown might look out of place in an Indian ceremony, you are wrong! The Indianised versions of the gowns and their designs give them a truly traditional look! Team up this look with brown eye shadow and top it off with gold glitter to make your eyes stand out. To make your lips look pouty add some gloss!
Matha pattis and tikkas are a must have this season. It can add that missing touch of glamour and complete your look.
The third look is of a boho chic, with a contrast lehenga, a messy braid, red lips and a statement necklace.
