Indian weddings are an extravagant and an elaborate affair. The celebration sometimes starts days and weeks before the wedding day. And, if you are not the one planning it, there is nothing to stress about it. You can glam up and doll up for the ceremonies. With the changing style and fashion, it can be hard to guess what to wear to a sangeet function which is one of the most entertaining functions to attend.
There are two factors you might want to take into consideration here: go as per the theme of sangeet and the comfort of clothing as there is going to be a lot of fun and dance and you do not want to leave a scope of discomfort by stretching your dress from here and there or looking awkward in it. These days wedding get-ups are looked up as a glamour quotient and you do not want to fall behind in this race of elegance and appeal.Sangeet is one of those ceremonies where the wedding couple actually enjoys themselves with their friends and family. There are plenty of style dresses for sangeet function, but let’s take a look into the ongoing trend and the Bollywood divas.
Dresses for Sangeet Function:
1. Know about the occasion more:
Check with your friends/ family if this is going to be a mehendi-sangeet function or more like a cocktail and western-vibe event? Ask yourself if it the more traditional one with the folk dances around or more of a dance and hip-hop fun with DJ. Check if there is a theme? Is the family very close to you? These questions must be answered to make sure you do not end up in extremely slinky translucent attire while everyone’s planning to show their garbha skills. Lehengas are great but make sure they aren’t heavy for you to move and also they make the best sangeet wear as it could camouflage a lot of missed footwork while dancing too,

Crop tops with similar skirts make an impeccable combo too. Anarkali or floor length lehenga is more befitting for an occasion of sangeet.
2. To wear a sari or not to?
Sari makes an elegant yet stylish and unique dress. Although a lot of the girls out there feel that saris are usually only traditional this is not so true. However, wearing a sari to the sangeet night might not be a brilliant idea as you would want to dance your night away celebrating with friends and family and also you could be pretty drunk to take care of the layers in the sari.
But if you have worn it many times and are comfortable in it, it makes a gorgeous one! A well pinned or styled sari makes a sexy look giving that edge to you over the others wearing the usual lehenga or skirts.
