Haldi outfit ideas: The most exciting and happening event of the wedding festivities, Haldi is every bride’s favorite day. A day full of beauty pamperings and fun, haldi is traditionally applied to the soon-to-be bride to enhance her beauty and soothe her skin so she can glow as bright as the stars on her wedding day.
Nowadays, haldi has turned into a fun and exciting event, where both the bride and the groom and their families dress up in coordinating outfits and together play with haldi and flowers. Themed haldi parties are also quite a rage these days.
What to Wear on Your Haldi Function?
From pool haldi parties to holi-themed haldi, couples are now hosting spectacular parties to celebrate their wedding festivities with pomp and grandeur. So let’s start with some tips on how to dress up for your Haldi ceremony:
- Keep it light and airy, if you are planning for a summer wedding, light and easy breezy outfits are your best bet. Pick an outfit in fabrics like cotton or linen and keep yourself cool while dancing the day away.
- Haldi is one of the most celebrated and important rituals, where the family and friends apply haldi to the couple. So keep your hair and makeup to the minimum as it will all get stained with haldi.
- Opt for something inexpensive but pretty so you look good in pictures but also don’t feel bad when your outfit is stained forever with haldi.
- If you and your boo are going to celebrate haldi together then you can also coordinate with each other or opt for absolutely contrasting outfits.
- Coordinating with family on your haldi is also a huge trend these days. Plan it before, decide on a color and inform your family to wear that color to your haldi. Trust us when we say, the pictures are going to be magical.
- If you are scared of haldi staining, you can also celebrate haldi with flowers. And have a flower shower event with tons of marigold flowers, at your haldi.
