Last week I was at my friend’s wedding in San Jose, California. It was an epic 4 day Indian-Gurjati wedding. Every night was a different event which meant multiple outfits. I absolutely love any excuse to get dressed up in Indian attire. I think a Sari looks absolutely stunning on any body type and when draped correctly, a sari is pure elegance. On day day 3 of this wedding extravaganza the groom’s family threw a garba for the family and guests. Graba is a form of a dance which started in the states of Gujarat in India. In this dance groups of people dance around a statue of the Goddess Shakti to pay respects. Graba is normally celebrated during the Hindu Navarati festival, but it is also a traditional part of a Gujarati wedding.
For the Garba I wore a red Sari from Frontier Heritage. You can wear a sari multiple different ways because it is basically 6 yards for fabric that you pleat, pin, and tuck in the correct places. Since I was attending a Gujarati event I thought it would be appropriate to wear a my sari Gujarati style. I hope you enjoy the way I styled this sari!
