really can’t help you here, but as soon as i clicked on this thread i went *swooooon* when i saw the first dress, and *siiiigh* when i saw the 2nd one. and no wonder… because the 3rd one- casablanca 1978- was my dress!

you have wonderful taste 🙂

i hope you find something that works for you. sounds like it will be a beautful wedding.


ETA: casablanca is super flexible with alterations- they will do just about anything you want!

i’m eventually going to post pictures of my dress in the official casablanca 1978 board, but if you’d like to see it on a real person i have some in one of my recent replies- the “before and after” one.

I wanted to chime in quickly for you regarding your question.  I am a cultural wedding and event designer who specializes in fusion wedding – particularly Indian and Persian.

So to anwer your question, it is perfectly fine for bare shoulders, especially as your reception wardrobe.  If you were to be in a temple I might suggest otherwise, but as it is reception wear, any of the gowns above are BEAUTIFUL, no need for a cap sleeve or jacket.

As an FYI many of the modern lenhenga’s and sari tops are strapless, so some of your younger guests may be wearing them.  The only difference is that they may have their scarves draped over one shoulder.

Enjoy the process, and if I can be of any more help with fusion wedding questions, let me know!  Happy to help!
