Different Types Of Lehenga Accessories

Latkans are mostly used as ornate ends for your Lehenga's dori, the borders of your lehenga dupatta and the back of your blouse. Make sure you choose latkans which match the embroidery of your Bridal Lehenga. It’s important that you don’t pick latkans that are too heavy to avoid unnecessary discomfort. Here are a few inspirations:
When we talk about Lehenga accessories, how can we miss out on a dupatta, right? Well, a Lehenga dupatta can make or break your look. The current trend in dupatta draping styles for the brides-to-be is to wear two dupattas. One, over their head and the second one across their shoulder with the other end tucked inside the Lehenga skirt. Choose your dupattas carefully and make sure you try them out with your lehenga before buying.

Here are the different aspects of bridal jewellery that are essential lehenga accessories.
Bridal Earrings -

Pick a style of earrings that suit you. A lot of brides wear chandbalis for their bridal look. There are several styles going around such as tassel earring, single stone earrings or the good old oxidised silver jhumkas for other wedding functions.
Necklace or chokers -
Often brides pair a necklace with a choker and to be honest, picking a necklace or a choker or both are subjective. If you have a heavy embroidered, closed neck for your blouse, a long necklace will look great. If you have a broad-shouldered neck, a choker will do just fine. If you have a light embroidered blouse, a combination of a necklace and a choker will help you achieve the perfect look. Polki, Kundan and of course, Diamond jewellery are the current favourites for the brides.
Bangles and rings -
A lot of brides from North India wear the Chura, a traditional set of ivory and red bangles. But if you want to try something different, make sure you pick the matte feel metal bangles instead of glass ones. These won’t break and will also give you a classy look. For rings, big and bold is always the key. Match it with your jewellery and you’re sorted.
Maang Tikka, Passa and Nath -
Matha pattis are the latest trend that we've are now seeing on almost every bride. If you want to keep up with it, try out Kundan matha pattis and if not, you can go for simple single line maang tikkas as well. An alternative would be adding a Passa (either alone or with the Maang Tikka as seen here).
The bridal nath or nose ring is again an important Lehenga accessory. Match it with your maang tikka and other jewellery to complete your overall look.
Belts, Brooches & Bags
Wear a belt with your Lehenga to accentuate your body shape - be it as a traditional kamarbandh or the modern belt.
Brooches are old school but believe us, they look beautiful. Buy a pair for yourself and wear it on your wedding day.
Most brides choose not to carry a bag for their wedding but if you want to, buy a tiny clutch that fits your mobile and matches your outfit.
Footwear is an important part of Lehenga accessories. Make sure you pick a footwear that’s comfortable. If you want to wear heels, go for wedges instead of pencil or block heels. They are more easy to carry and they look pretty too. Make sure the length of your Lehenga is in proportion the length of your heels.
A lot of brides choose to wear juttis these days as well. You can pick whatever you like the best according to your convenience.
