Bridesmaid veterans know the drill: Once you’ve accepted the job you’re expected to do everything from helping the bride put together the perfect trousseau to throwing her an impeccable hen party – you have to take care of it all. It's hard to imagine your sister’s or best friend's wedding without a calendar full of bridesmaid duties, choreography sessions and endless shopping trips. While scouring the stores for your best friend's wedding dress, don't forget to chalk out your own wardrobe for the upcoming celebrations. Planning is crucial before the wedding madness begins to avoid last minute fails. To make the process easier, take help from our guide.

Twirl-worthy lehengas are a popular choice during the wedding season. For the mehendi event, swap your basic lehenga choli in favour of embroidered kurtas and embellished pants. Shireen Hassan’s A-line set and the multicoloured outfit featuring straight pants styled with a draped dupatta are both great options. While you will be on your toes looking after your friend's needs and having a good time at the wedding, make sure your outfits stand the test of time to help you survive the days and nights effortlessly.

Not a fan of heavy weaves and long trailing saree pallus? Try something like this pastel lehenga set. For the big wedding event, take cues from this look and let your outfit do the talking.

For a formal cocktail event, or the reception, make sure to keep in sync with the dress code. You can go down the traditional way, or opt for this pink sharara set covered in glistening embellishments from head to toe.

And while you’re planning for your outfits, don’t forget to add some statement-making jewellery to any look to take the glam quotient up a notch.
