Haldi Ceremony Outfits That Are Fuss Free, Won’t Stain Easy And Perfect For The Bride-To-Be
A bridal trousseau is one of the most versatile box of treasures that’s ever existed. From shaadi lehengas to Kundan jewellery sets that our mothers have been guarding with their lives, a trousseau is where the good things are at. Yet, there are some things that always get ignored. For instance, the haldi outfit which young brides think to be replaceable with a simple kurta or a cute tank paired with harem pants (you know who you are!). They simply don’t get their time in the sun.
We understand where this comes from as well. The haldi ceremony falls right in the middle of the pre-wedding rituals. It usually happens during the day, out in the open and ends up you will probably end up with a turmeric-stained mess anyway. As such, sticking to something that won’t cause too much drama while you try to get it cleaned up seems like a good idea.
But hey, you’ll only have a haldi once! We aren’t suggesting to sit in a heavily embroidered lehenga for the ceremony, but we do have some pretty alternatives instead.
Late last year, we were left wanting for more when there were but a few pictures of Deepika Padukone’s wedding were released. The ones which were out in the open showed Deepika in a citric-hued salwar kameez for her haldi ceremony, a look we pinned on our wedding mood boards instantly.

Thus, we set out on a hunt for outfit inspirations for a haldi ceremony that is simple, beautiful and in all the fabulous shades of yellow, gold and orange!
Athiya Shetty In Paper Gold
Athiya’s beautiful crushed gold salwar kameez from Anavila is perfect for a classic bride. The label’s designs are hand-stitched by artisans and have a story behind every weave, we give this look an A+!
Bhumi Pednekar In Saffron Orange
We love Bhumi’s saffron-hued, kaftan-inspired draped ensemble from Nupur Kanoi. It is just the look for ladies who like to experiment with silhouettes and keep it looking cool AF!
Sonakshi Sinha In Eyelet Pudding Yellow
A sleeveless kurta pajama can be a lifesaver when it comes to covering all bases at our haldi. The eyelet detail in this Itrh number is sure to keep the bride easy-breezy when surrounded by mamis and chachis!
Karishma Tanna In An Indo Western Dress
Ever wondered what a skirt anarkali looks like? Karishma Tanna’s Etika Sancheti number is not the traditional haldi ceremony yellow but is equally good for it!
Chitrangada Singh In A Floral Anarkali
Floral anarkali dresses are one of our favourite styles when it comes to everyday ethnic wear. The Mrunalini Rao ensemble on Chitrangada will make for great candid shots, we just know!
Ananya Panday In Burnt Orange
A cropped anarkali kurta might not be the first thing that comes to a to-be bride’s mind when shopping for her trousseau. But Ananya Panday’s Anita Dongre is all kinds of fresh and festive, we are dropping this in the suggestion box.
Mrunal Thakur In A Golden Sharara
Even if to-be brides decide to go with a simple gunji for their haldi ceremony, the bottom can be replaced with an ethnic skirt or a sharara to add some flair to the event. We love the brocade selection from Raw Mango, seen here on the stunning Mrunal Thakur.
