If you are wearing a gorgeous lehenga, pair it with effortless curls. If this is your first time using a curling iron, it's better to seek professional help; your BFF’s wedding is not the day for experiments. Keep your makeup look fresh and dewy and highlight the lids with an eyeshadow shade matching your lehenga.

Bridesmaid duty can be pretty demanding, and a good way to ensure your hair doesn’t get in the way is by tying it into a sleek bun. Add some rose flowers or wrap a gajra around it to amp up the hairdo. No matter what colour outfit you are wearing, a neutral makeup look will definitely complement it.

For the reception party, take inspiration from Mrunal Thakur who looks elegant in a saree. Pair your outfit with a gorgeous choker necklace and long, sleek hair. Instead of the regular smokey eye, add a bit of golden shimmer to the look and look oh-so gorgeous with the bare minimum.

Wait... a ponytail for your BFF’s wedding? Well, why not?! Isn’t it the most versatile hairstyle? Add a stunning hair tie or accessorise it to make it look fit for the occasion. If it's a daytime wedding, there’s nothing better than a fresh, dewy makeup look and a soft pink lipstick to go with.

Those with short hair wondering how to look their traditional best can create a half-up half-down hairstyle like Hina Khan. Keep your makeup base simple and swipe on some red lipstick. Add two coats of mascara to tie the whole look together.
