6 Gorgeous & Unique Ways To Coordinate Desi Bridesmaids

15th April 2023

Nothing looks more aesthetically pleasing than a put-together, co-ordinated & excited bride squad. These are your closest girls, and you’ve all likely sat and dreamt about each others wedding days together; and they’re definitely just as excited for you. Whether it’s with the awesome bride squad shots, the bridesmaid proposals, or the gorgeous gifts, be sure to make them feel just as special on your big day. There have been numerous Western world trends that we’ve incorporated into our desi weddings, and this has to be one of our favourite ones yet.

We’ve seen so many gorgeous poses, outfits & special moments literally go viral on Instagram, TikTok & YouTube recently. Whilst the trends are great, it’s important to have your bridesmaids co-ordinate in a way where they’re the most comfortable. Granted, it’s definitely easier to customise a western outfit than our desi ones; but don’t worry, we’re here to help!

We bring to you, our best 9 ways to customise & co-ordinate your desi bridesmaid outfits, with Nims Boutique.

“There’s no better feeling than watching your best friend marry their best friend!”


colour palette

If you’re someone who likes the co-ordinated look, but doesn’t love matching every single piece, go for a similar colour palette. The colours should complement the bride’s attire and the wedding theme overall.

Provide your bridesmaids with colour swatches of the tones which will complement yours. This way, they have free reign to have a browse around lots of different stores & online, and roughly know what to go for.

identical skirts & varying blouses

Definitely one of our favourites and the easiest to co-ordinate. By giving your bridesmaid their blouse pieces to tailor accordingly, they can customise the outfit to truly speak to their preferred style. Keep in mind, that they’re definitely going to re-use this outfit, so make sure they want to wear it again & again.

Either in store or online, you can find a range of skirts and blouses in sizes 4-24, with different shade ranges and styles to suit each of your bridesmaids needs. We love the range of variety available.

DUPAtta coordination

Dupattas are an important part of our South Asian attire and can be used to create a cohesive look. Bridesmaids can choose dupattas that match the color of their outfits or that complement the bride’s dupatta. They can also choose to wear their dupattas in a similar style, such as draping them over one shoulder. This is definitely one of the more subtle, yet just as impactful, methods of coordination.

With a range of standalone skirts, dupatta’s & blouses; in net, satin, brocade & so much more. There is enough choice for all your bridesmaids to mix & match.

the rule of three

Mismatched bridesmaids are a trend that’s here to stay!

Pick two or three colours and outfits that you love, and ask your bridesmaids to pick between them. This way, there’s enough varying shades & colours, so that they all look slightly different, but you’re still able to be in control of how it all looks in the end. This way, your bridesmaids also won’t all look exactly the same on the day, but will definitely be able to stand out from the crowd.

identical prints

Coordinating prints can create a cohesive look, such as choosing outfits with the same type of embroidery or using the same patterned fabric. This creates a cohesive look while allowing each bridesmaid to express their unique style.
