There is enough colour in this ghagra choli for wedding festivities and then some. Add more jewellery. How about chaand balis or jhumkas, maang tikka and a nose stud or a ring?

15. From Gujarat

Ghagra Choli For Wedding - From Gujarat

The fabric that is wrapped as dupatta is patola fabric, a traditional Gujarati fabric that is used for special occasions like weddings, pujas etc. The plain ghagra is a great companion to the zardozi embroidered choli with long sleeves. This outfit is great. Again you will have to visualize to see what I’m talking about. Like in the case of the outfit here, think of wrapping the dupatta differently or you could even leave it as it is. Add a choker to your neck and wear bangles and a necklace. Complete this look with big jhumkis and tikka. Perfect, right?! Try and stick to antique-type jewellery though. It’ll look better.

16. The Non-Glitter Option

This gold ghagra with a touch of red has no glittery embroidery on it. The shine and sparkle is very subtle, bouncing off from the fabric rather than embroidery. The touch of crochet on the blouse in the same dull gold shade allows you to shine through the garment. The net dupatta with a touch of thread-work is subdued enough not to dominate your jewellery; the perfect ghagra choli for wedding occasions.
