Finding the Perfect Wedding Lehenga
11 th Jul 2014

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day and will not settle for anything but the perfect outfit. If you are looking to find the perfect lehenga for your wedding, then look for rich fabrics, flattering cuts and exquisite craftsmanship.

The bridal wear industry has come a long way today and the options when it comes to picking Indian wedding outfits are endless. If the options confuse you, we tell you in this post about how to go about shopping for wedding lehengas that will make you look stunning.

The one factor that will help you narrow down your choices while selecting wedding lehengas is the budget. Indian wedding outfits can cost you from a few hundred to a few thousand pounds, depending on the fabric and the detailing on the outfit. Once you decide how much you are willing to spend on the outfit, you can start looking at wedding lehengas in that price range.

The next aspect that you should focus on is the shape that flatters your figure the most. Wedding lehengas come in a variety of shapes like fishtail, A-line, fitted or flared with multiple kalis. Try the lehengas and choose a shape that accentuates your curves. Similarly, the choli can be short or long depending on whether you want to flaunt your midriff. Traditional designs come with a longer choli while the latest fad is to show off a toned midriff in a cropped choli.

The kind of neckline that your choli has is also important since a lot of attention will go towards your neckline and jewellery. Pick a choli with a neckline that doesn’t interfere with your jewellery. Also, if you have a big bust, go for a neckline that is V shaped and avoid a round neckline.

When it comes to the colour, you can either go in for traditional colours in Indian wedding outfits like deep maroon, green and red or experiment with pastels. Take a look at some of the designer wedding lehengas we have here in refreshing colours like lime green, pink and orange that are both elegant and classy. 

Once you pick the colour of your choice, it is time to decide on the embellishment you want. Many Indian wedding outfits these days come with Swarovski, silver and gold zardosi work. While these look good on paper, do make sure that a heavily embellished outfit does not weigh you down. The best way to choose from a multitude of embellished wedding lehengas is to try the ones that you like and pick the lehenga that both looks ravishing and is comfortable. Give importance to comfort since you have to spend close to a whole day in the outfit and any discomfort will show through in the wedding photographs. Once you start trying the wedding lehengas, you might even like a lehenga due to its sheer comfort level even though the fabric stands out more than the embellishment.

A tedious process like choosing a wedding lehenga can be simplified if you narrow down your choices based on the budget, silhouette, colour and embellishments. Take your time, go through your options and you are sure to find your dream wedding lehenga that you can cherish for many years to come.
