The Haldi ceremony is a pre-wedding ritual that is held 2-3 days before the wedding or on the day of the wedding. On this function, guests put haldi on the bride and the groom and give them their blessings.
1) Dhoti Saree
Take some style inspiration from Shilpa Shetty Kundra and wear a dhoti saree for the haldi ceremony. This trendy saree is a normal saree. The only difference is that instead of having a straight fall, the saree will fall like a dhoti.
2) Simple Anarkali
An anarkali is one outfit that will never go out of fashion. For the haldi ceremony, wear a simple printed kurta and pair it with a yellow colored printed dupatta. Simple yet elegant, this outfit is good option to wear on this function.
3) White Shirt and Lehenga
4) Simple Kurta with Palazzos
Sometimes, keeping it simple is the best option-just like this yellow kurta that has been worn with a pair of palazzos. The kurta and palazzo just have a simple, gota border on the kurta sleeves, the skirt of the kurta and the palazzos.
5) Block Printed Kurta with Palazzos
Another outfit idea for the haldi ceremony is this lovely, block-printed kurta. The large block print on the kurta makes for great contrast with the small block print on the palazzos. The pink dupatta adds a pop of color to this outfit and makes it stand out.
6) Crop Top and Flared Pants
This two-part outfit is the perfect fusion of ethnic and modern styles. The heavy gold work on the crop top, complements the simple flared pants of this outfit beautifully. This outfit is the right balance between heavy and light, especially for a function like the haldi.
7) Color Block Kurta with a Heavy Dupatta
The color blocking trend has taken the fashion world by storm. This outfit is a perfect example of giving this trend an Indian twist. The light blue and yellow kurta makes for a great contrast in this outfit. The thread-work on the kurta gives the dupatta a heavy look, which goes very well with the simple kurta.
Wear heavy outfits on main functions such as the engagement, sangeet and the wedding. But for small functions like the haldi, go for these simple yet stylish outfits.
