-by Karishma

Making memories into reality, the day you always dreamt of is finally within sight and while your family and friends dive head first into the entire wedding checklist, you, the bride, should take a moment to process the beautiful series of events that will soon unfold in front of your eyes rather soon. More exciting so as to say, the quintessential shopping parade is a necessary rite of passage that usually signals the beginning of everything retail related from jewellery to shoes to cosmetics. But the most integral purchase, the wedding lehenga remains the closest to the brides’ heart and also the one most sleepless night are spent over along with most phone memory dedicated to. Let’s take a deep breath and check out these ten tips to keep in mind while buying the perfect wedding lehenga.

Orange Wedding Lehenga

  1. Know the look you are going for : Is it destination meets beach, is it castle princess or is it absolutely traditional? Depending on this, you will find it easier to narrow down the colours, work and cuts you are looking for in your dream outfit. It will also help you decide whether you want to flaunt different styles of lehengas or keep one constant theme throughout the wedding.
  2. Colors, colors, colors : It is important to know what colours you envision your lehenga to be, and more importantly if those colours suit you. Also remember to take complimenting colours that would work well with the grooms’ outfit, so it looks coordinated and precise. Are you going to go traditional with the reds and greens or be a funky bride with blues and blacks or whites?
  3. Recognise your body type, not fads : Its essential to dress like a bride et all, but its more important to feel like one! Don’t feel pressurised to follow advertisements and bridal spreads that sport “the” lehenga of the season.

4. Decide how many dupattas you want and try to keep it in accordance with your final look.

5. What work you will select for your lehenga will also depend on the kind of jewellery you plan to wear on your big day. Zardosi, gota and zari work look great with gold or polka jewellery while sequins, dana and 3d work looks great with diamonds and coloured stones.

6. Fabric selection time : Keeping in tandem with your body type, browse through fabrics that would highlight your shape instead of hide them. While the choices are endless, you must know in your mind what you are looking for. So, what will it be, net or silk?

7. Time is of the essence : The entire process of browsing through options, trying them on, narrowing down and finalising can be a tad bit exhaustive so remember to keep enough time on hand so that you can even give the designer enough time to peacefully prepare your lehenga and customise it to your needs.

8. A perfect union : Take a moment and discuss your thoughts with your groom and bridesmaids so that everything is picture perfect on D-Day!

9. Work with numbers : We recommend keeping a budget in mind and working from there so as to save you and the store or designer time and effort.

10.  Reference and research : It always helps to have a reference image or look that you would like to personalise just so your grand finale isn’t a shock to yourself.
