Things to Consider Before Choosing Your Wedding Lehenga
When the most special occasion is on its way, nothing delights like a shopping done right. And for a bride-to-be it becomes an entirely new experience, meant to be layered with perfection, isn’t it? We have curated the top-notch points to walk you through this phase with ease. Here you go!
Women with hourglass shape and those with athletic frame can be more liberal in color choice and can choose something bright with golden zari work for the best look. Skinny brides must avoid clingy fabric and choose Silk, South cotton or Banarasi. Busty women can keep their blouse neck round or mid-length ‘v’. Minimum or least work on blouse is recommended. Brides with Pear-shape body type can choose between A-line, flared, etc. and have a heavy work on choli.
Dusky brides can avoid silver embroidery and go for dull gold. Colors like peach, pink, blue, etc. can be chosen. Brides with fair complexion can be more liberal with color selection.
Experiences always count and a quick chit-chat with your friends and family can open some tried and tested things to follow. One lady recalls ‘my wedding lehenga had delicate embroidery with light work in blouse sleeves. Light pink glowed on me due to my white skin tone. It was held during the day thus light color worked for me.’
Red and green are evergreen and considered the ideal colors that lit up the bridal aura. But with time, new colors have taken over the market and the desire for experimentation has given birth to different styles. Afterall your ‘armaans’ ought to flow when you’re the one getting married!
Petite brides must choose a high waist lehenga with a thin waistband, and vertically drawn-out patterns to complete the look. Tall brides can adhere to flats instead of wearing heels and not adding unnecessary extra inches to their persona.
It’s a better idea to choose jewelry before the dress. The neckline of your apparel must match with your neckpiece for an enhanced look. Heavy ear rings work with buns and raised styles while you may go with something lighter when having a braid and keeping your hair lowered. Big mang tika and jhumar stay in vogue and can be experimented.
Yes, the time of the wedding matters. Light colors are better during the day for brighter and happier pictures and the darker ones with some dazzle fit the night look.
Color matching of bride and bridegroom’s apparel is something beautiful and mandatory, since a new bond between two people is to be established. A little work on the cuff or collar of bridegroom’s shervani can match the hue of bride’s lehenga so they get colored in one and turn picture perfect.
