Choose the fabric carefully
A bride has to carry the heavy lehenga and hence she should be comfortable in it while standing, sitting or even while day-dreaming. A heavy, unmanageable or a wrongly stitched lehenga can be a pain. Choose the fabric you will be comfortable wearing and also according to the weather and the season. A thick and heavy material might be good for winters but summers and springs will require something light like georgette or silk.
The inner facing of the dupatta
It might seem absurd but yes, the inner lining or the fall of the dupatta matters a lot. You might choose a dupatta with the prettiest border but don’t forget that when it will go over your head, what will be visible is the inner lining from the sides of your face. Hence be very particular about the fabric and the color of the inner facing of the dupatta which will be reflected on your face. Bright colors like red and pink help to brighten up the face while dark will obviously give a dull look.
The blouse and the dupatta
Focus more on the blouse and the dupatta which are more important than the skirt but people generally think the opposite. The cameraman is going to click your photos in which most of the time what will be visible in the blouse and the dupatta and not the skirt and hence that is what requires more of your attention.
The matching of Jewelry and the lehenga
