My Formals Attire – Desi Wedding Edition

my formal attire

I love weddings and getting dressed. And this wedding season, many of my friends are getting married.

When you have a Desi Wedding to attend, you must get a heavy formal attire. Especially, when we desi people take weddings way too seriously.

Today, I am sharing the two formal yet simple attire of mine which, I styled myself for a friend’s wedding rather than, buying it from designer stores. 

This post will help you if, you want to design a formal dress yourself on a budget.


When it comes to formal dresses, I never buy any Designer wear. I like to visit local markets when I need formal dresses.Best markets to visit in Karachi for formal attires are Rabi Centre, Gulf, Ashiyana, and Banaras.

These piece of clothing I have bought it from Banaras and a market called Bara market in North Nazimabad.

Sincerely, nowadays there is quite a variety of embroidered material itself in the market. Which save us with a lot of time to think and a lot of money to spend.

So, Let see what I got,

Beige And Gold Embroidered Net Dress:

It’s an Embroidered material Dress. Hence, to give the dress a formal look, I told my tailor to sew a golden balls lace trim and Jamawar (banarsi) material at the bottom, sleeves, and to the dupatta borders.

This dress looks, amazing along with a Nude color Sandal and a Brown Cross Body Bag.

This sandal in the picture is from Borjan and bag is from Zenera.
