Wedding Kurtas for Women by Ancestry
While weddings around the world are elaborate affairs, none can quite match the unabashed glamour and grandeur of an Indian wedding. It is imperative for wedding guests to be immaculately dressed. Most Indian women, we daresay, take immeasurable delight in planning and purchasing the outfits they must wear at a wedding
A wedding kurta must be suitably rich and ornate. With the dominance of minimalism, however, sartorial sensibilities have arguably shifted towards the understated and unobtrusive. The Ancestry collection of wedding kurtis for ladies flawlessly captures the mesmerizing magic of minimalism, without letting go of the brilliance that should mark the outfit of an Indian wedding guest.
Our wedding kurtas for women come in a fusion of colours and textures that are sure to impress the most fastidious fashionista. Each of our designer kurtis for weddings features at least one special element that sets them apart. While one may be crafted of velvet, another may display the unmistakable vividness of neon orange or deep purple; yet another may feature embroidered detailing on the yoke, an intricately sequinned neckline, or an exquisite zari-piping adorned hemline. For lovers of heritage crafts, there are kurtas with all-over Benarasi brocade pattern.

No list of kurta for women is complete without mentioning the print kurta. At Ancestry, we play with fabrics, motifs, cuts, and textures.

Fancy a more contemporary print instead? The White Rose Printed Kurta may be the perfect match for you! This again has an all-over floral print that complements the dusky peach fabric, along with sequin details around the sleeve and neckline, adding a dash of quiet glam.
If you’re the modern Indian woman who’s all about unique cuts and drapes, the winter-toned Ajrak Kurta from our collection is sure to allure you. Being a front open ladies kurta, this piece is all about comfort. Its uniqueness lies in its asymmetric hem and textured Ajrak prints, a finish we could achieve thanks to the sturdy cotton dobby fabric. What’s more, it doesn’t skimp on details. It has cuffed sleeves, a collared neckline, and even comes with wooden buttons around the yoke and the cuff.
Of course, this isn’t the end of our love affair with prints, for we have a range of other beautifully crafted tunics on our shop. So, don’t forget to visit our online store to buy kurta online that best complements your personal style.
Explore the Collection of Embroidered Kurta
Lovers of handiwork have a penchant for delicate embroidery on their ladies kurta. At Ancestry, we have a collection of chic embroidered kurtas designed keeping in mind the modern Indian woman. The Abaya White Kurti from our collection, for instance, has floral embroidery along the neckline and the front that gives oomph to the modern silhouette of the piece. While in our Olive Short Kurta, the floral embroidery adds a pop of color to the otherwise elegant cotton silk chanderi tunic.
Our collection also has pieces that include zari embroidery like the Marigold Embroidered Cotton Kurta and the Sheen Wrap Kurta. Both these pieces feature intricate zariwork details on the summer-coloured chevron weave and chanderi fabric, adding a hint of festive cheer.

Style-Up with Ancestry Contemporary Ethnic Wear
At Ancestry, we understand finding your distinct style is a journey. So, if you aren’t there yet (or you’re unsure about how to pair pieces), here are some ideas to help you out.
1. Casual Pairings
Nailing the casual look is about striking a balance between style and comfort. So, pair a short kurta like our Linen Classic Blouse, Jaipuri Kurti, or the Aaina Classic Kurti with a pair of trusty jeans or relaxed trousers. While denim bottoms go with tunics of any colour, remember to pair bottoms of only the same colour at all other times. If you want to take your style up a notch, wear contrasting fits! A structured, well-fitted kurta looks sporty with a pair of oversized pants or jeans, while a looser-fitting ladies kurta works well with a pair of tailored trousers.
2. Office wear Pairings
Office wear rules can be limiting, but with Ancestry, you never have to compromise on your style. A office look could easily feature many of our pieces. The White Shirt Kurta in schiffli cotton with bead embellishments makes an easy addition to your closet, given you could pair it with bottoms of any colour. Our Light Blue Work Ready Kurta, on the other hand, when paired with linen white bottoms makes the perfect work fit. The best part? It comes with pockets!
3. Festive Pairings
At Ancestry, we think festive looks are easily overdone, and hence we prefer to keep things subtle with our ladies kurta, and our fabrics and embellishments do the talking. The Laali Basic Kurti encapsulates this view. Made with delicate cotton silk chanderi, the bright red tunic adds a pop of colour, so it looks best with a cream-colored bottom with colourful mojaris paired with heavy earrings. Try out the kurti collection for special occasions.
Can’t resist going all out for festivities? We also have pieces like the Monochrome Silk Brocade Kurta to strike your fancy. The burnished gold and embroidered details are sure to make heads turn, and this piece works best when paired with a pair of matching trousers and a sheer cream dupatta from our collection.
