A lot of your bridal look depends on how you drape your dupatta and TBH the bridal attire looks incomplete without the dupatta. Now that we have established that the dupatta plays a major part if the foundation of the bride's final look, we'll also show you what's better than one dupatta! The brides have chosen to flaunt a double dupatta draping style and we surely have Sabyasachi to thank for the trend.
Two dupattas make the drape look absolutely regal and while doing so, they also add those extra layers of beauty and grace to your attire. Be it co-ordinated colours or contrasting ones, here are our favourite picks of double dupatta lehengas that gave us goals.
The Green Gorgeousness

This bottle green colour outfit is a masterpiece created by none other than the fashion maestro of traditional wear - Sabyasachi. The bride flaunts a beautifully draped double dupatta style where the net dupatta with booti work is put over the head and the other one that has intricate Bandhani work on it is gracefully placed over the shoulders and arms.
The Red Royalty
The bride has very carefully picked a heavy and a light dupatta. The dupatta that came with the lehenga is a velvet one with minimal booti work all over and heavy zari work on the borders. The net dupatta in red also has booti work and a heavy border to be in sync with the velvet one and is taken over the head. The velvet dupatta is tucked on the sides to keep the heavy material in place.
The Pink Blush
As far as coordinated double dupatta draping goes, this bride has earnestly chosen the same colour for both her dupattas and the only difference is the material. Both the dupattas have the same border work with sequins and stones and the work of sequins all over the body is similar but the net dupatta is a lighter one as the primary dupatta is heavier. Let the drapes fall daintily over your Juda hairstyle.
The Rani Pink Beauty
The dupatta that is her primary one is a light, powder pink coloured net dupatta. However, matching her attire the bride is showing off the twirl in a bright rani pink dupatta with fantastic Dabka work on the borders. This intricate gold thread work enhances the overall look of the bride and sets it a class apart. The double dupatta drape allows one dupatta to be tucked in pretty pleats and the other to be over the head.
The Crimson Red Grace
This is the absolute red riding hood beauty here with the red lehenga and the matching red dupattas. Maintaining the thin line of contrast, the primary dupatta is dark red and heavier with the intricate embroidery work than the one she has chosen to take it overhead. You can choose to tuck the dupatta on your waist or let it fall on a long and gorgeous trail behind you to make it aesthetic when you walk down the aisle.
The Sea Green Finesse
This bride in her sheen sea green lehenga is doing it so right by flaunting her curves with that beautiful patch belt of floral shaped patches. The belt has kept the primary dupatta, that is neatly pleated, in place while she has draped the other lehenga over her head as a beautiful veil. This double dupatta draping style uses two dupattas of the same colour and even the material is the same, only differing in designs.
The Yellow & Pink Panache
The powder pink dupatta that covers the head of the bride is not only super light, but this supernet dupatta is also adding to the charm of the yellow lehenga that has a matching yellow dupatta with it. The powder pink dupatta has a scalloped hem on the edges and the yellow one in all its brightness flaunts an embroidered border. Their combination is a happy and soothing one.
The Off-white & Tangerine Twist
If your lehenga is a light coloured subtle one like this off-white one in raw silk material, you can choose your second dupatta to be of a bright colour like this tangerine orange one. The bride has aesthetically managed to match the dupatta colour with her Kalire colour (or maybe the other way round) and the floral hand embroidery work all over the orange organza dupatta a good catch.
The Red & Blue Charisma
If you are the one who needs a different coloured lehenga but wants to keep the head veil traditionally red in colour, then take inspiration from this bride who has gone the stretch to flaunt a royal blue lehenga with a red dupatta. When contrast is on your mind while planning for a double dupatta, always know that red can never go wrong and this bride shows us how.
The Peach & Yellow Stunner
The bright yellow colour is a tricky pick for a wedding however, the bride has very beautifully managed two subtle colours together. The peach dupatta matches the hem of her lehenga and it is tucked on her waist like the saree's Pallu. She lets the yellow net dupatta fall freely on her head pinned near the Chhapka or jhoomar so that it stays in place as she twirls for the camera.
These were some of the different double dupatta for lehenga styles with both matching as well as contrasting dupatta colours and designs. Make sure to give more space to the heavy dupatta so you get to show off the intricate designs on it. Enhance the beauty with your personalised style of double dupatta and make a fashion statement while walking down the aisle.
