Short Kurta

Indian weddings are known for its various functions and events. Short kurta won’t be an appropriate outfit to wear for an Indian wedding as it may look a bit casual. But you can wear it on the day time of the wedding or you can wear it at sangeet or mehendi function of the bride. You can pair a short kurta with your regular jeans and if you like to add more Indian touch to the look then you can take a contrasting stole and complete the look.

Kurta Paijama

There are varieties of kurta paijama available online. On the basis of your kurta design and pattern only you can decide whether you can wear it in wedding or not. There are some plain cotton kurta paijama which you can wear in puja but not on the wedding day as it would look very casual. Then there are silk kurta paijama with little bit embroidery done on it, you can wear this one for wedding with a matching or contrasting stole. When you carry a stole with light work kurta paijama it gives a feel that of you are wearing a sherwani.
