What To Wear To a Wedding?

I had some real trouble trying to decide on an outfit for yesterday’s wedding.

My biggest problem which you all know of, was that I couldn’t fit into most of my outfits, due to that middle-aged spread, that has crept up on me rather slowly!

The other was do I wear red or not? Red is the traditional bridal colour in Indian weddings. I have not been one to wear red ever, in fact, I didn’t even wear red on my own wedding! But my Mother-in-law had bought me a beautiful outfit, complete with matching Punjabi JoothiΒ or Traditional Punjabi shoes, and bangles to complement the outfit. The little bells on the shoes tinkled lightly as I walked, and I confused poor Sonu Singh royally as he is the only one to wear a bell usually, so he was intrigued as to where the sound was coming from!

My Punjabi Joothi!

 

I had to have it altered, so I could breathe in it, and the decision was made. Red it was. There were a couple of others wearing red, so I wouldn’tΒ stand out too much!

I didn’t get a full-length shot, but here is me, complete with double chin on the day!

And so to work out what to wear tomorrow for the wedding reception…!

    Sensational!
    I wish it was not in poor taste for me to dress as the Indian women do here. I think I would very much enjoy all the soft and loose fabrics…so feminine, but modest and practical…
    Anyway, just gorgeous — NO ONE is thinking you have a double chin! Love those shoes! Omagoodness, stellar shoes!

    I know the feeling of not having anything to wear, especially when it’s because they won’t fit :/ Love the shoes πŸ˜€
