Indian Wedding!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I've been invited to an Indian wedding, and I don't know what to wear! My date and I are both white. She will be outfitted with an Indian dress/sari/etc... But I'm not sure what to do.

I'm male by the way, and in my early 20s. Advice ....?

casual khakis sound good

Can't go wrong w/a dark suit and tie. Much better to be overdressed than underdressed. It shows respect, and a suit for a guy is pretty universal.

A dark suit, white shirt, and monochrome silk tie always works. If you have blonde hair, get a lighter tie. Black haired? Wear a darker tie. Always ALWAYS have a white linen pocket square for formal occasions.

Yeah I just wasn't sure if I should try to emulate more of an Indian suit-style. Like having a crew-neck collar shirt with a more Indian cut jacket. But I think I would be more comfortable in a standard "american" suit/shirt/tie.

Thanks for your replies!

I would say just dress normal as you would for any wedding. I went to an Indian wedding about a year ago and just wore a nice brown dress with heels. My boyfriend wore dress slacks and a dress shirt.

As an Indian who has attended many Indian weddings, I say wear what you'd normally wear to a wedding and you will be 100% fine

I'm Indian as well, and have been to many Indian weddings.

Indian or not, you can't go wrong wearing a dark suit.
