Guest’s Attire At An Indian Wedding In South Africa


Indian weddings are full of life and can be quite exciting for those attending. Before heading out to the wedding, it’s important to know what’s best to use for the occasion. Here are garments a person can choose from to fit in at an Indian wedding in South Africa.




This is a traditional dress women wear to an Indian wedding and it works like a charm. It’s a dress that comes in two parts with a drape that goes across the front. It comes in various colors and patterns allowing women to experiment with what they put on. It can be something that works well at almost any Indian occasion and is something that’s close to home for Indians at weddings.


Shalwar Kameez


The second option is a shalwar kameez, which is loosely translated to “shirt and pants.” In general, the shalwar is a loose pants that is worn with a long shirt (goes to your knees). A shawl is taken with this garment to complete the look. Just like the saree, it comes in various patterns and it’s up to you as to what you wish to put on.




Yes, the traditional suit is still an option for men looking to attend an Indian wedding. While it’s recommended to mix things up with something more Indian-centric such as a shalwar kameez, it’s never a bad idea to go with a simple suit. It works well at an Indian wedding and is a universal way to fit the setting you are in.

These are the items most people put on as soon as they are ready to go to an Indian wedding in South Africa. It is a festive environment just like any other and it is something that is going to allow people to experiment with their Indian clothing. Whether it’s a saree or a shalwar kameez, there’s something for everyone at an Indian wedding.
