Sangeet ceremonies are the most casual, chilled out of events when it comes to weddings. That being said, don’t think turning up in a loosely thought out outfit can make you look like a million bucks. Go over the big details regarding your outfit- style, drape, colour, material, but don't’ forget the minor ones. Here’s a quick checklist of all you need to do to finalise your outfit for your sangeet ceremony.
1. Make Sure your Outfit is Hassle Free
This is priority! Look for an outfit that will allow you to dance around without having to think about where your heavy net dupatta is falling.
2. Ditch the Dupatta
If you do decide to go for a lehenga, ditch the dupatta, so that you’re hands free.
3. Minimise the Jewellery
Substitute heavy choker necklaces with high neck embroidered blouses or statement hand accessories so that you’re not carrying too much weight.
4. Bling it on!
A bit of bling goes a far way on your sangeet night. Swarovski crystals look great at night and add a nice edgy bling to the outfit.
5. Make a Statement
Like we said earlier, try to keep your shoulders free and jewellery light. Instead, opt for a for a few statement pieces that complement your outfit.
6. Keep It Light
Make sure your makeup isn’t too shimmery- keep it dewy and fresh, we recommend. Maybe a strobe of bronzer over the cheeks will do the job!
7. Blot It
Keep some blotting paper at hand- or ask your bridesmaids to. The dancing and sweating shouldn’t make your face look like a runny mess.
8. Carry Reinforcements
Carry your lipstick and/or gloss with you. You might require some touching up. A faded lip clour can totally dull your look.
9. Wear Comfy Footwear
Yes! This is finally the occasion where you absolutely must wear a comfortable pair of shoes, unless you plan to dance barefoot.

10. Half Up-Half Down
Confused about how to wear your hair? We recommend a half-up half-down hairdo. Get your stylist to show you some styles that keep hair away from your face, yet maintain a classy look.
11. Mess it Up!
A messy bun is our favourite pick for a sangeet updo. It keeps you looking glam, yet is fuss free ( get your stylist to secure it nicely, or it might flow open when you’re dancing!)

12. Go for Jootis
A nice pair of golden jootis is something a bride must own. It’s a lifesaver- take our word for it. Post all the dancing and constant standing, this is what will save your precious feet from sores.
