Elegant Haldi Outfits for Bridesmaids: A Guide to Looking Your Best

Posted by Mehma Singh on

The Haldi ceremony is one of the most vibrant and auspicious pre-wedding rituals in desi weddings wherein turmeric paste is applied to the bride and groom by family and friends.

Immediately after the bride and groom have been celebrated, guests move on to celebrating with each other. This ceremony usually has almost all guests and family members sporting little haldi on their cheeks and hands, often on their clothes, while some of them end up being lathered in it! 

As a bridesmaid, we’re sure you’re looking forward to flaunting one of your best looks on this special day, and rightly so. Bridesmaids also tend to get a bit of turmeric yellow stains on their faces and dresses, so it’s best to make sure that your outfit is not white or light colored. 

Our go-to is one of the shades of yellow to match the vibe of the occasion and also to camouflage any haldi stains.

We’re here to guide you in choosing the perfect Haldi outfit to look and feel your best while celebrating this beautiful occasion. Here are our five stunning Haldi outfit ideas for bridesmaids that bring together rich south-Asian tradition with a hint of elegance and contemporary fashion.

The Classic Saree:

A saree is a timeless garment that never goes out of style. Sarees in lightweight fabrics like chiffon, georgette, or cotton are best to stay stylish and comfortable while enjoying the festivities. 

As a bridesmaid, you’ll be expected to be on bride-duty throughout the event. So, your saree needs to be easy to move around in. Our Simran, Zaara, and Kavya sarees are great options for a haldi dress for women

These are gorgeous sarees with intricate diamond and gold detailings, and floral prints yet so lightweight, breezy, and practical to wear. The blouses are highlighted with gold detailing and short sleeves that you can flaunt your fresh mehendi in! 

The Elegant Anarkali: 

If there’s an evergreen South-Asian outfit that embodies grace and elegance, it is the Anarkali. Centuries of history behind this apparel, their flowy silhouettes, and intricate designs make them a popular choice for pre-wedding ceremonies. 

Floral print anarkalis like our Raavi and Samaira  outfits are perfect for a daytime ceremony to add a refreshing touch to your look. Our Shadi at Tiffany’s and Feels like Summer sets have pastel-colored plain dresses with floral dupattas. Juttis, jhumkas and soft curls go very well with floral prints.

If you wish to go for a more contemporary and dreamy look, try our Cotton Candy Ruffles Anarkali set that contains gold embellishments on the dress and ruffle detailing on the dupatta. It’s a class apart!

The Trendsetting Fusion Wear:

Blending traditional elements with contemporary fashion and creating indo-western fusion looks is a fun way to style outfits. These haldi outfits for guests and bridesmaids are perfect to make a style statement in traditional fashion while also leaning towards western culture without compromising on comfort.

This pretty pink Alina set with a floral top and plain pink maxi skirt (hello wardrobe staple!) is perfect for Haldi and can also be styled for your fancy western events.

Our Kesha, Gaya, Noori, and Vaani sets are superb options for Haldi due to their bright shades, pretty floral prints, flowy silhouettes, and versatile tops and bottoms that can even be worn as separates. 

The Traditional Lehenga:

While choosing your haldi lehenga, go for something lightweight and chic, probably in a summer-friendly fabric if it’s an outdoor, daytime event. You need to stay light to move around freely and easily since you’ll be taking an active part in the celebration as a bridesmaid.

Our Mrinal and Nohra lehengas are your best choices for the Haldi event. They are easy, breezy, fresh, sparkly, and very comfortable to spend the day in.  

If your personal style is a bit more fancy or if it is an evening event, go for our In The Mood For Black And Gold Lehenga set. Our Starlight Dust Lehenga set is another great option for an elegant, soft, and dressier look.

Complete with embellishments, embroidery, and made in rich organza fabric, these outfits are perfect for all your pre-wedding festivities. These lehengas are trendy and stylish in festive designs and colors that you can look good and feel great in. 

The Evergreen Salwar Suit:

Salwar suits are great for slaying the modern fashion game while staying grounded with your traditional roots. A straight-cut salwar suit in organza fabric and a soft hue, like our Enchanted Blush Organza Kurta Set can create a classic, stylish look.

A Sharara suit, like our Jiya outfit, is another great option to stand out at a Haldi event. A short/long kurti paired with a sharara in bright hues like, yellow or orange, some statement jewelry, and a dupatta will make you the best dressed person at the event!

Summing it up:

Any outfit that you wear has the potential to make you the best-dressed bridesmaid at this Haldi event only if you carry it with a dash of smile and a ton of confidence! Remember to complete your look with the right footwear, accessories, and hairdo. 

This is the time to bring out your maang tika, statement earrings, bangles, and heels, juttis or Kolhapuri chappals. Keep your makeup light and fresh with a natural look and a pop of color on the lips. Go for a sleek or a messy bun, or let your hair down, and enjoy this Haldi in style!
