I am a Canadian woman and I will be attending a wedding in India in January. There will be Indian and Canadian people in attendance. I was wondering if it is rude (or expected) to wear a sari to the wedding.
The two disrespectful situations I am looking to avoid are:
Wearing western clothes and giving off the impression I am "too good" for a sari or,
Wearing a sari and giving off the impression I am just playing dress-up with another country's culture and traditions.
I was invited through my sister-in-law (friend of the bride) so I do not have the ability to contact the bride directly, and whenever I ask my family, I get a shrug or noncommittal answer in return. Any help would be appreciated!
UPDATE: I did choose to wear a sari for a portion of the wedding (actually, all of the Canadians did) and it was very well received. Thanks to everyone for your help!
