4 couple outfit ideas for your engagement function
As the bride-to-be, you might have left no stone unturned in making your big day as beautiful as possible. From decor to food, bridesmaids kits, photography, wedding favours and all other intricate details, we are sure that as the leading lady, you have covered all bases. If all these details are in-sync, and you have a particular theme for your engagement celebration, then it is only fitting that your and your partner’s outfits are seamlessly coordinated. Whether it is matching colours or similar prints and fabrics, there are numerous ideas that you can implement to create unique and incredible ensembles that you can wear as you get engaged while surrounded by your friends and family.
Here are a few of the best couple outfit ideas that you can use to pick the perfect outfits for your engagement ceremony.
As a couple, if you wish to go all out on your engagement day, there is nothing better than matching prints. You can opt for similar patterns or precisely the same ones, and if you wish to add subtlety, you can just opt to match a few aspects of your outfit. This Mayai Lehenga Set and Aruj Nehru Jacket from ace designer Anita Dongre’s collection is an excellent inspiration for matching outfits for couples. Both the lehenga and the jacket are present in bright hues that make for an ideal pick for both day and night occasions. The groom can also opt for a plain kurta underneath the designer Nehru jacket, so while you will be matching outfits, both of you will have an independent look and style.
The elegance and beauty of pastel outfits remain unmatched. When styled right, pastels give you the ultimate feeling of a power couple. From pinks to greens, blues and purples, you can select from a wide range of pastel palette which best suits your style. Take cues from these powder blue ensembles. The lehenga features beautiful floral prints, minimal embellishments, designer scarves and a flowy silhouette so that you, as the bride, can move around effortlessly. The groom’s blue outfit is equally functional and stylish, featuring a plain blue kurta offset by a floral Nehru jacket.
It is pretty common for couples to have totally different styles and clothing preferences. However, if you have picked a particular theme for your engagement party, then it is essential that you, as the lead couple, stick with it and incorporate it in your outfits in subtle ways, if not entirely. A great instance of this pattern would be opting for a lehenga set and a sherwani with similar floral prints. These white ensembles have floral and tropical motifs that are identical but not identical. While the lehenga features these beautiful prints all over along with minimal embroidery, the white kurta set styled with a tropical print jacket makes for a gorgeous couple outfit worn by the bride and groom.
When you want your engagement outfits to personify the power couple that you are, there is nothing better than opting for darker hues in unconventional silhouettes. Not only do the darker shades look great in person, but they also tend to come out great in pictures. This Awa Gown in Navy Blue by designer Anita Dongre features handpainted Pichwai style motifs and is embellished with sequins, pearls and gota patti. This gown is complemented by the blue Naheem Sherwani, which is available in a luxurious silk fabric and all-over stitch line work. The ensembles together look highly sophisticated and stylish.
Now that you have the perfect inspiration to select your engagement outfits, you can start your shopping and select the ensembles that best suit your style!
