AW: Indian wedding clothes - PIP

So I know some of you wanted to see my various wedding ensembles ... these are two out of the three.  The third is a sari that I will wear to my religious blessing, but I don't have any pictures of that.

The first is my outfit for the henna party the night before the wedding:



It is on a hanger, and not on me, because despite taking my measurements, the shop took it in about one or two sizes too small.  I got the skirt on but I don't think I could have sat down, and the blouse won't even go on.  Grrrr.  So I have to go back to Tampa to fix everything.

Closeup of the work on the skirt:

And this is my punjabi to wear the morning after the reception.  I have to receive a blessing at the doorstep of FMIL's house, but I'm changing into a sari for the official puja.  This is too casual for a religious ceremony, but I can't dress myself in a sari at the hotel, so I'm wearing it until I get inside her house and can change.  It's super comfy.

    Thanks so much girls!  I'm so excited to wear them ... it's like playing dress-up!

    Priya, I got the lehenga choli at Prerana's Beauty Boutique in Tampa.  They have some of the most elegant, up-to-date things I've seen in FL, but I can't recommend them unequivocally because of the tailoring mistakes they made.  That said, their stuff is worth taking a look at.  The punjabi is from Ruby's in Sunrise.
