Wedding OOTD: Friend's Engagement

I attended an engagement function a few days back which I was looking forward for a long time. This friend of mine is a regular blog reader and we have had long long chats on her enngagement planning. I could see happiness on her parents faces all throughout. The evening was filled with stories, laughter, music, dancing, happiness and a few happy tears.
As directed by the bride-to-be, I did not even think of wearing a saree coz she wanted me to dance freely. So I chose to wear a phulkari skirt in turquoise blue and green, paired up with a green raw silk top and a blue chiffon dupatta. I wore a long diamond earings from my wedding and since the earings are long, I went bare neck.

Full picture of the outfit
My friend wore an orange anarkali. This dress had a dupatta too but she ditched it to be more comfortable. Do you also feel that this anarkali looks better off without the dupatta?

With the pretty bride
This Bride-to-be is a planner at heart and she works very hard to make things perfect. She arranged almost everything on her own and was well prepared like a 10th Std student for his board exams. I could see small details taken care of with such elegance. Be it the gift for the groom, the floral arrangements or her saree draping.
Soon after the guests arrived, the sister-of-the-bride hosted the function and asked the bride and groom a few questions about each other. The bindaas bride shared their 7 year long love story to their close family and friends. The mother-of-the-bride had moist eyes when she talked about her daughter. After the cake cutting and ring ceremony, everyone hit the dance floor. It was the most well planned ceremony I have attended lately.

Things to Remember: There is so much you can achieve by keeping things simple. It doesn't take too much efforts for a candid interview of the bride-groom. But it can be a HUGE change from the regular cake-rings-dance-dinner engagement party. Here, both the parents got to know the details of their children's love story. It was a simple engagement with an extraordinary impact on the guests.

How many weddings did you attend this wedding season? What was the best amongst all of them?
