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!
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?
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:
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.
