By Nishtha Bhalla  October 8th, 2020

A matchmaker mother wants her free-spirited daughter to get married. The headstrong girl refuses to settle for mediocrity. A romantic cheeseball of a man is determined to marry her. Ginny Weds Sunny, which comes out on Netflix on October 9, has us excited for a lot of reasons. (You know, what with it being a new release in our entertainment-starved world, and the sheer adorability, hilarity and absurdity its trailer hints at.) But the biggest reason for our excitement? The outfits Yami Gautam is seen wearing.

The actor, who plays protagonist Ginny in the film sported a number of gorgeous looks in the film and is giving us the wedding mood board of our dreams. “The outfits speak volumes about the character. Even with Ginny, her outfits give you a peak into who she is, how her personality and dressing is a fusion of Indo-Western, and how she’s all about colour,” says Yami Gautam. Whether it’s a day wedding you’re planning to attend, a function in between, or even if it is your own wedding, the looks from Ginny Weds Sunny will give you all the inspiration you need. We broke down Yami Gautam’s best looks from the film, so scroll on below… and don’t forget to take notes. PS: these looks work for Zoom weddings too.

Wearing a white, sheer sari with green and pink geometric patterns, Yami Gautam is giving us major outdoor, day wedding vibes. For a more modern take on the sari, you can take a leaf from her book and pair it with a ribbed blouse with lace embellishments. She completed the look with a layered, oxidised silver jhumki necklace, with jhumki earrings to match. Top the look with your sunnies, and you’re good to go for a day function.
