4 celebrity-approved sangeet outfits for a summer wedding
Lightweight and easy-breezy
Whether you love experimenting with your style or prefer keeping it traditional yet sophisticated, these celebrity-approved sangeet outfits have got your back for a summer ceremony. Expect bright colours like Kareena Kapoor Khan’s cobalt blue kurta and lehenga set from House of Masaba and Diana Penty’s sunflower yellow jacket, white shirt and olive green palazzos combination from Payal Khandwala.
Dainty floral prints aren’t too far away — Shilpa Shetty Kundra keeps it light and simple in a floral tiered ruffle sari from Arpita Mehta, and Kriti Sanon adds flair with Shivan and Narresh’s stunning sari gown with pants. Go on, take your pick.
4 designer sangeet outfits that are perfect for a summer wedding:
You might not associate cobalt blue with summer, but the royal colour makes a bold statement and flatters all skin tones. You can also experiment by mixing your prints like Kareena, who wears a printed asymmetrical cobalt blue and golden kurta with a printed lightweight lehenga from House of Masaba. She accessories her look with a cuff, jhumkas and a traditional necklace, all in gold.

Love colour-blocking? Then you have to try out Diana's combination of sunflower yellow and olive green. The crisp white shirt tucked in the palazzos gives a smart, semi-formal look, and the knee-length jacket in a contrasting colour adds drama to the ensemble (all Payal Khandwala). A stunning statement necklace and nude heels complete the outfit.

For girls who prefer the offbeat and unusual, we recommend Kriti's Shivan and Narresh sari gown with pants. Sassy and sexy in equal measure, this ensemble in classic wedding colours gives the traditional sari a contemporary update, and is ideal for you if you don't know how to drape the nine yards.
Florals never get old for summer, and if you want to keep it simple and unfussy, pick a floral printed sari in a light shade like Shilpa's ivory sari. The highlight of this Arpita Mehta sari, though, is the tiered ruffle detailing which gives it a perfect fresh look. The actor accessorises her sari with an elegant pair of earrings from Renu Oberoi and a bracelet from Azotiique.
