Summer Weddings: Lehenga But Not At All Mehenga

Main shaadi karungi toh Kareena Kapoor wala lehenga pehen kar karungi, warna dulhe ko tata bye bye kardo!” Alia Bhatt spoke my heart out, and not just mine thousands more. But wait, Brides these days are more bridezilla than quiet and nervous. So let’s shift focus on those who have a serious pressure of looking their best as well as getting all the Bridezilla tantrums in order. The Bridesmaids.

As we continued researching and putting together the top looks for upcoming summer weddings, we found the perfect outfit. The Lehenga. The wedding day, the reception nights, the sangeet performance, the mehndi night, the lehenga in its variants can fit in beautifully on any of these events. The lehenga choli is the only kind of outfit which can be played up or down as per event, or who’s wedding you are attending. Here are a few tips to sort your lehenga choice out:

The colour: Bright blues, pinks, reds and greens will do well as day colours. Go earthy, metallic or powder pastels when picking one for the night.

The embellishment: Work/ embroidery/ sequin/ stones help make your outfit grand or casual. Depending on who’s wedding you are attending, the time of the event and your budget, the embellishment must be decided.

The Fabric: Net, Georgette, Silk and anything flowy will give your garment the fall it needs. Pick the fabric as per your body type as well as how heavy would you like it to be. Most of these fabrics can be worn day or night.

Print: Summers will be too sad without florals, instead of an all out floral print, pick one like in the pictures below. Geometric prints are also classy and give you an edge above most common outfits at the wedding.
