bluesparkles:  It’s gorgeous! In my experience, saris all tend ot be sparkly and colorful. I don’t think you’ll be upstaging the bride at all.

bluesparkles:  I recently went to an Indian wedding where the bride wore the traditional red sari. It was so heavily blinged out with so much detail that she still looked like the bride even next to someone else wearing a red sari. The bride normally wears really heavy jewlery and lots of it, and i mean lots of it. So i wouldnt be worried with your outfit.

If youre SUPER worried, id personally return it and buy another colour just to save yourself the stress, even though your dress is totally fine to wear 🙂

bluesparkles:  I attended my first Indian wedding this past weekend and it was so beautiful and so interesting to experience! 

My friend’s wedding gown was a very similar color scheme to the sari you posted, so I would choose a different color if possible just to be safe. I don’t think the sparkle is an issue though.

It is almost impossible to upstage an Indian bride. Regardless of what colour you wear or she wears, there will be no question who will be noticed and blinged out and the center of attention. From my experience, ALL colours of dress are welcomed at an Indian wedding, and most people will wear their very best clothing. The sari you have chosen is beautiful and is very appropriate.

Wearing the same colour as the bride isn’t an issue at all at a desi wedding 🙂 I wore a deep blue lehenga to my reception and plenty of ladies were rocking gorgeous blue saris!

That sari is perfectly appropriate; a popular colour choice and it’s dressy enough. I find most people unfamiliar with the customs typically underdress to south Asian weddings. Don’t forget a little bling yourself!

CrankyTurtle:  I think there’s a bigger difference between pink and red than white and cream. Just saying.

I don’t know what the custom is for Indian weddings.  However, at my wedding, a guest wore a sari.  OUr wedding was not an Indian wedding but rather an outdoor, garden wedding, where I wore a traditional American bridal gown, the groomsmen wore gray suits, etc.  Anyway, my point is I thought the guest looked beautiful and I loved it!

bluesparkles:  I love it! And it’s totally fine to wear. No one can upstage an Indian bride, trust me. She’ll be encrusted with so much beautiful jewelry and a beautiful sari. You’d look out of place if you wore something plain. 

Where did you get that beauty? Did you order it online?

chocolatechipmint:  just as there’s a difference in cream & creamy beige. I didn’t say there wasn’t a minor/major difference in pink & red; I was giving a proper example. It appears red in the photo & will possible appear red in other photos as well as expected of some pink hues–not sure if it’s just the lighting, camera, or another factor but it’s a lovely sari anyway. Just saying 🙂

bluesparkles:  I’ve been to one Indian wedding (in India).  I can promise you, there is no upstaging the bride.  I think you’ll be fine.
