What Men Want: The Girl they can Take Home to Mom

According to a recent survey carried out by a leading matrimonial portal, 84% Indian men prefer career oriented women as their life partners. Moreover, almost 74% prefer better halves who remain updated with the latest news and developments and almost the same percentage love to be with women who genuinely love cricket. However, when it comes to taking a girl home for the first introduction, a conservative salwar kameez is usually what they are looking for on the woman of their dreams!

It is essentially about traditions

When it comes to culture and traditions, many Indian men prefer adhering to the age-old norms, especially when it concerns a girl they wish to take home to mom. So, even as miniskirts and crop tops work well for those dates, a formal meeting with the mother would warrant traditional attire and abiding by the expected rules. So, a traditional salwar kameez would be preferred over the jeans-and-T shirt ensemble, any day! And the chosen ethnic wear for the occasion would ideally have to be traditional in form and design, duly complemented with a dupatta. So, if your guy has planned one such meeting with his family, sticking to modest traditional wear would be the safest option. Which one from your wardrobe should you choose? How should you prepare yourself for the meeting?

Dressing up for the All Important Day

Understandably, you are likely to be nervous. After all, this would be your first encounter with your future family and you would wish to put your best foot forward. The following tips and guidelines could be of help:

  • Unless there is a special celebration or a festival on the day of your meeting, it is always advisable to keep it simple. Choosing a salwar kameez you are absolutely comfortable in is the best thing to do. Never go for the overly dressy stuff that makes you self conscious or uneasy. Select a suit you think you look best in. The body confidence will shine through and would certainly help in creating a good impression.
  • Keep the jewelry minimal. Elaborate jewelry will only be advised if you are visiting your prospective in laws at a social event, like a wedding or engagement ceremony. Simple, yet stylish, jewelry will be the best bet for a meeting at home.
  • Consider sticking to comfortable footwear. While it is all very good to sport pencil heels with your favorite anarkali suit, do not give in to temptation unless you are absolutely comfortable in them. Flats and medium heels could work equally well. Remember, you need to be comfortable and confident.
  • Appear organized. Be it the purse or handbag you are carrying, the dupatta you have draped or the way in which you have arranged your hair, try and appear organized.Buy Salwar Studio Pack Of 2 Cotton Silk Blue & Beige Coloured Kurtis_ssk0245-213 Price and Features.Shop Salwar Studio Pack Of 2 Cotton Silk Blue & Beige Coloured Kurtis_ssk0245-213 Online.


And most importantly, be yourself! It is extremely important to be who you really are. So, if loud makeup is your thing, making you comfortable and confident, do not hesitate. Similarly, if you prefer to under-dress rather than over-dress, it is always better to let your future family know who you really are. When it is about lifetime relations, concealing facts is never an option. If you wish to shop for a brand new Indian traditional salwar kameez ensemble for this occasion, make sure you have worn it at least once before the actual day. Brand new apparel could sometimes make you feel uncomfortable! And, of course, you also have the most important person of your life by your side for all the confidence that you may need.
