All you brides-to-be, avoid making these lehenga mistakes

Not choosing the right lining: We understand that this is a big day for you and that there might be a lot on your plate. But in the end, you must remember that apart from feeling perfect you also need to feel comfortable. As gorgeous as your lehenga might look, not choosing the right lining under it is a big no-no. Not only will the lehenga fabric then irritate you, but your lehenga won't look as pretty either.

Not knowing the proper length of the lehenga

There are certain things you need to keep in mind when you go to get your lehenga stitched or altered. Most lehengas have a can-can underneath them which gives them that poufed up look. So, make sure that you walk, sit and see how comfortable you are in it and whether or not the can-can is showing from underneath. You also need to ensure that the lehenga isn't too long for you or you'll just keep tripping on it.

Not wearing the right lingerie underneath

If you're having an Indian wedding then you know just how many rituals you're going to have to sit through. This is why it's important for you to wear the most comfortable lingerie because you never know how long all the rituals will take to get over. Make sure that you wear everything as a trial run before your wedding takes place.

Not thinking of the right colour to wear

While you may want a certain coloured lehenga for your wedding, what you need to remember is that not all colours suit all skin tones. So, make sure that whatever colour you choose, goes well with your skin tone. So, if you're looking for something in the shades of red, figure out whether you would look better in scarlet or in maroon.

05/12Choosing uncomfortable shoes

Choosing uncomfortable shoes

Most women have a shoe fetish, and if dictated by the norms and styles doing the rounds, they end up picking beautiful footwear for your lehega, (which are uncomfortable too.) Consider the fact, you will be standing and moving a lot during your wedding day. Don’t let the uncomfortable heel from pull your spirits down. Choose practical flats instead. However, if you can’t do without the heels, choose a pair of platform or wedge heels.

06/12Tying the lehenga incorrectly

Tying the lehenga incorrectly

We’re not surprised how the nada that ties the lehenga has not been replaced with something that is more superior and doesn’t have so much scope of a mistake. It’s either tied too loose, or too tight or too high or too low. Ensure that your lehenga is tied by a professional. If that’s not possible, take your sweet time in getting it right.

Not wearing a weather-appropriate lehenga

Choose your lehenga depending on the time of the day and the time of the year. For a day wedding, choose lighter pastel shades, instead of the usual navy blue, red and green and vice versa for evening events. If like in a relatively warm area, choose a lehenga with a light fabric. For cooler places, a lehenga that’s made of velvet will work best for you. After all, you don’t want to be sweating yourself or getting a chill while you’re tied in holy matrimony!

08/12Matching from top to bottom

Matching from top to bottom

If you opt for a colour coordinated outfit from head to toe you're going to end up looking like a curtain. When you add some contrast to your outfit, it can help make the colours pop and make you look more vibrant. So, try and opt for at least two colours or if you want to wear the same colour all over, at least try and get different shades.

Not opting for the right neckline

The neckline of your blouse can pretty much make or break your look. When it comes to bridal lehengas, remember less is more. A round design, a leaf design or just a U-cut usually works the best for bridal blouses. And make sure that your neckline isn't too high or too low. It needs to be just the right length for you to flaunt your fabulous jewellery.

10/12Picking the wrong embroidery

Picking the wrong embroidery

Try and consult with someone on what will really suit your body type. If you're curvy, then try and avoid bold motifs and big prints as they can make you look bigger. And if you're thin, do the exact opposite. Go for large floral prints and bold prints stay away from minimalistic embroideries as they'll totally tone down your look.
