I was at an Indian wedding many years ago and I have to say the women, even those not in the wedding party, looked spectacular, each outdoing the other in amazing gold-threaded saris, and the bride and maid-of-honor never looked so beautiful. They were all clearly the peacocks since all of the men were in cheap suits except for the groom, who was the most glamorous groom I'd ever seen dressed all in white with a bejeweled turban and curly-toed white Aladdin shoes! It was a terrific experience except for the part where I was pelted with dye. At least I got fair warning when they gleefully shouted "Get the foreigner!" in English.
