Bonus Tips to Help You Select Your Indian Bridal Lehenga
- Before you zero in on the shade, keep the fabric in mind. Choose the lehenga fabric smartly considering the season, its softness, durability among other things. If your skin is sensitive, it might be a good idea to get basic cotton fabric stitched at all the places where your lehenga would come in contact with your skin.
- If you can't find the exact shade that you are looking for, find the fabric in white and get it dyed to your satisfaction. This will ensure perfection even though you will have to engage in some extra time with the fabric and dye vendors.
- The cut of your Indian bridal lehenga should accentuate your body type. Selecting one that does that for you will require careful planning and some research. Try on different cuts to find out what suits you best.
- Flaunt your style with the double dupatta. Most brides opt for two dupattas with their Indian bridal lehengas. You can either choose two similar ones or two contrasting ones to go with your ensemble.
- Since you are not going for red, implying that you are an unconventional bride, choose the patterns and embellishments on your Indian bridal lehenga that scream the same.
