We suggest you try these offbeat colour combinations and quirky prints for your Lehenga Choli and ace your wedding ensemble. Trust us, even we want people to admire and remember your outfit, and maybe follow the suit.

Tips and Tricks for the Bride-to-be

Keep these tips and tricks in mind before opting for a colour combination for Lehenga Choli for your D-day:

  1. After red, pink is the most sought-after bridal colour. Choose the right shade of pink to suit your complexion. What suited your friend, may not suit you.
  2. The trick towards wearing bright colours in your bridal lehenga is to have a subtle or muted colour in the mix to tone down the entire look.
  3. White as a colour symbolises with purity, innocence, and peace, yet, there is still a taboo when it comes to associating the colour white with weddings. Well, now in 2018 you can include this colour in your outfit by mixing it with the right colours.
