Hi, Casey! According to our research, here are the following recommendations for non-Hindu guests at Hindu wedding ceremonies: No black, white, or red (red is reserved for the bride). Cleavage/legs are somewhat okay at the reception, but not the ceremony - when in doubt, go for modesty and bring a silk shawl or wrap with you. Guests often sit on the floor at traditional Hindu ceremonies, so make sure your dress is comfortable and stretchy enough to do so. Here are eight lovely picks for you & your friends. Enjoy!
1 - Alberto Makali Grecian Inspired Evening Gown ($658)
3 - Cynthia Rowley One Shoulder Georgette Dress ($204)
4 - JS Boutique Beaded Waist Jersey Gown ($198)
5 - Adrianna Papell Beaded Chiffon Gown ($238)
6 - Scala Halter Top Evening Gown ($198)
7 - Mignon One Shoulder Embellished Gown ($398)
8 - Tadashi Shoji Side Knot Silk Chiffon Gown ($358)
