This will be my first Karva Chauth with the family (although technically the first one has already happened last year at my honeymoon in Australia). I’m not a Punjabi, so this is the first Karva Chauth of my LIFE! What I mean is, I’ve never even seen one. Except in the movies, of course. And I’m, obviously, totally lost about what to wear.
What do you wear on Karva Chauth?
I’ve heard newlyweds get really decked up on their first karva chauth, and many even wear their wedding lehenga. Should I? Or should I just wear a really heavy sari? I have one net sari with heavy kundan work that I wore to my cousin’s wedding 4 years ago (never wore it after that because it’s really heavy) – it’s actually the exact same sari Anushka Sharma wears in the final scene of Band Baaja Baraat (the movie) where Ranveer Singh’s character finally confesses his love to the girl. Or should I go classic and wear a silk sari (I have plenty lying unused from my trousseau), or wear one of the many anarkalis I own that are not so heavy?
I know, I know. Too many options na? That’s why I need a little bit of help! What did you wear/are planning to wear on your first Karva Chauth with the family? Your wedding lehenga? Or a heavy sari? SOS!!!
Edit: I finally wore my wedding lehenga! Pictures and full story here.
