Traditional Wedding: Day Two

Last week, I showed you what I wore to the first day of my friends wedding. I thought I'd give it a few days before sharing my outfit for day two:


Outfit - Southall
Shoes - Luxury Rebel via Sarenza
Handpiece - YourFashionJewellery


These are my parachute trousers. I'm convinced if you pushed me out of a plane wearing this, I'll land perfectly. They're huge, and it does take getting used to. They're also really heavy as the pattern is all beading. The handpiece was probably one of my favourite things about the look though. I love how unique it is.

I managed to wear my Luxury Rebel heels again - the last time I wore them was Fashion Week. I can't believe how comfortable they were! I was on my feet for about 5-6 hours, and they were absolutely fine throughout. I also love all the studs on them: it really makes them stand out.



Rules for Day Two are similar to Day One, but the opposite. So instead of the brides side hosting, it's the grooms side that throws the party. The brides side all has to come together holding trays of flowers, sweets, candles and henna (like the one I was holding below) and offer it up. Unlike the day before, men were allowed, but the bride gets a day off and stays home (but we were constantly texting her updates of what what going on). It's also a day full of tradition: so guests apply oil to the hair of the groom, put henna on his hand, then feed him sweets and give him money.


Are there any particular traditions you have at your weddings?

You look beautiful and I love how unique this gown is! I also love how many different cultures offer different religions. Makes the wedding so unique!

Love the trousers! The wedding sounds like it was a great day. I've only ever been to one wedding in my entire life but can't wait until friends start getting married! x

I've been to a few weddings and they were all a bit unique in their own way. One involved a carriage ride for the newly married couple. I wanted to say that I love your flower bracelet. I know they tend to be called slave bracelets, but I like the term flower bracelet a lot better. I like the parachute pants too but they do sound awfully heavy lol.

Is this a hindu wedding? The weddings I go to are Muslim ones and we don't have this day where the bride stays home haha! x

Amazing outfit, Sherin, love seeing ethnic looks :) at Chinese weddings we have this thing called the 'tea ceremony' which requires lots of kneeling, receiving of money and tea, and general hilarity!

Such a beautiful outfit, the trousers are amazing. Trying to remember the tradtions from my wedding, it seems so long ago now. When I have been to Scottish weddings for family, the men wear kilts and everyone does Scottish dancing afterwards.
