Gone are the days when Hindu brides had only two or three options for their wedding lehenga. Today’s millennials are lucky to have so many options, be it color, fabric, or design, for their D-Day outfit. However, considering the number of options available in the market, there are chances for people to get confused and invest in the wrong outfit.
If you are a bride-to-be, you have certainly landed at the right place.
In this blog, we will tell you five steps that will make your Indian wedding shopping experience easier as well as help you find the right lehenga. So, let’s dive into the blog.
- Fix a Budget
Before searching for a designer, it is always better to decide on a budget. So, take out some time and determine the exact budget parameters for your wedding lehenga. Need to mention, there is no dearth of affordable designers in the market today. So, be smart and fix a budget first.
- Find a Designer
Once you have decided on your budget, the next step is to find a designer. Again, do not pick any designer suggested by someone. Instead, research on your own and find a designer who is within your budget and has a good review. In simpler words, he or she should deliver your dream lehenga without burning a hole in your pocket.
- Choose Comfort Over Trend
With online apps like Pinterest and Instagram, knowing the latest trends in the market is extremely easy these days. However, following a trend is of no use if you are uncomfortable wearing it.
That being said, the wedding lehenga should make you feel confident and comfortable at the same time. So, discuss your specific needs with your designer and let him/her know your preferences.
In the process of customising a lehenga of your style/comfort, you never know you will end up creating a new trend.
- Select the Right Silhouette
When you go to a designer, s/he will show you different styles of lehengas, from ruffles to multi-layers. Now, do not choose any style that pleases your eyes.
Like an old saying, all that glitters is not gold. That means a style that you find attractive may not compliment your body type at all. Keeping the same point in mind, select the right silhouette that you can pull off with ease and elegance on your wedding day.
- Pick the Right Colour and Fabric
Last but not least, pick a good colour and fabric for your lehenga.
When it comes to colour, do not stick to the traditional red or maroon. Nowadays, every other bride is experimenting with colours, from ivory, gold to lavender. No matter which colour you choose, make sure it suits you, looks rich and graceful.
Talking about the fabric, pick something that is not just comfy but also goes well with the season
There you go.
All the points mentioned above will, undoubtedly, make your Indian wedding shopping painless and help you find an ideal lehenga.
