Weddings are occasions for celebration, not just for the bride and groom but also for their families and friends. Happiness is shared through attending the festivities, may it be a baat pakki rasam, engagement, mehendi, dholki, sangeet, barat, or the reception. On this momentous day, people gather to celebrate happiness and joy and to bestow blessings on the couple who are about to begin on a magnificent journey in their lives. Wedding attire is crucial in this regard. What you’re going to wear, is all you need to focus on.
