The sister of the groom is an exciting role at an Indian wedding. Besides the obvious excitement over her brother's nuptials and the arrival of her new 'bhabhi', the sister of the groom actually plays a key role in many rituals. In a Punjabi wedding she would tie the sehra, and accompany her brother to the ghodi (or car). In vedic weddings she is called on to participate in the wedding pooja, and in many parts of India she helps her new sister-in-law take her first steps into her home. 

Regardless of the rituals, the sister of the groom will get her fair share of attention at wedding functions and in photographs, so looking her best is non-negotiable. The key is; the SIL should never overshadow the bride to be, but still stand out in her own way. We've rounded up a selection of outfits, perfect for the sister of the groom...let us know what you think!

Neeta Lulla BridalThis sari by Neeta Lulla is bright and eye catching because of the unique shape of the blouse, but not over the top. We love a look like this for a pre-wedding event. 

A unique piece by Shymal and Bhumika, this would be perfect for a summer (or destination wedding). The dupatta is lightweight but the embroidered pants more than make up for that and are the show stopper of this piece. 

Below, another beauty by Shymal and Bhumika that would be a great reception piece. The colour and double layer of this lehnga make it an eye-catcher

The double dupatta with a Punjabi suit is a really fun trend and can be used to add a contrast colour, or fun embroidery to your look. We love how Gaurang has taken three bold colours and paired them together here.

No one does a pant suit like Payal Singhal, and this one hits the mark for a pre-wedding function. Super easy to move around in, but styled just enough to make an impression.

This fusion lehnga from Anju Modi is made for the SIL with quirks! You can't always experiment and go out on a limb when you are a bride because you want to be timeless, but the sister of the groom is expected to have some fun!
