What’s not to love about OTT lehengas, fully sequinned saris and ornate kurta sets when curating your occasion wear wardrobe? Sure, that’s ideal for a local wedding, but when it comes to celebrations at a far-flung locale, the rules changes. Be it a beach ceremony or a palace affair, there are a few things you need to keep in mind when packing for a destination wedding. First and foremost, you need to carry ensembles that are lightweight yet impactful. Not only will this help in keeping your suitcase’s weight in check, but also perfect for dancing away at the festivities. Then, look for classic designs, easy separates and and vibrant colours that are best suited for such occasions.
We suggest you look to Mrunalini Rao to pick your dream pieces. From breezy cape sets to flowy saris, the designer has something for every taste and place. Scroll through our edit below to check some of our favourites.
