I'm Indian, and am going to an Indian wedding for my cousin. I'm not sure I want to go the sari/salwar kameez route. Something different?(more inside)

I'm going to my cousin's wedding in October, and I'm wondering if there is something I can wear that's more form-fitting than the usual Indian clothes. I won't wear a sari, but have worn a salwar kameez or lacha numerous times and always feel like I am drowning in the fabric and look chubby in the pictures. I'm pretty normal for an Indian girl--short, size 4, etc, but I am just not comfortable in the clothes. Are there any suggestions for dresses that might fit the theme, but are more form-fitting? I don't usually dress like a hoochie, but the floor length clothes make me feel stumpy. It's not the type of community where people would gasp if I wore something different or revealing, but I'd still like to know if I have some more options, something above-the-knee, that still helps me blend with other Indians.
