I loved the advice here when I was wedding planning last summer and with a wedding to attend at the end of August I need some help deciding between two dresses.
It’s a Sikh wedding, the daughter of my boss. My coworkers & I, and our husbands are invited to the reception.
I checked with my boss’ wife: wearing a saree or salwar kameez would not only be acceptible, but welcomed. I am torn between these two:
Also, I’m the whitest white girl: pale blonde with cool skin tones: what I’m most concerned about is looking paler than usual and washed-out by a too-bright colour. For reference, this is me:

The first one is really beautiful. I think the colour would compliment creamy skin!

I love the first one. The second one looks like it may wash you out.

@gelaine22: thanks; the skin tone thing is what concerns me the most; and I wasn’t sure if the darker colour of the 1st saree would work with my skim. My Punjabi coworkers suggested lighter/pastel colours for me.

That first one is just stunning! I’m also very pale with natural dirty blond hair and I find that I look better in darker/brighter colors. The pale tones don’t look too great on me so I think dark/bright would look better on you.
