How To Choose Which Lehenga Design Is Suitable For You

While a lot of to-be-brides know the kind of lehenga they’d want for their soiree, we know that a lot of you don’t. And whether you know or not, it is bound to get overwhelming for you when you step out for your lehenga shopping! With a plethora of designers and stores and lehenga designs to choose from, picking a lehenga that’s best for you isn’t an easy nut to crack.

Now, while we can’t foresee what lehenga will resonate with your heart the most, we obviously can aid you in choosing a lehenga design that’s suitable for you. So, follow through as these tips and hacks enlisted below are going to be your savior.

Budget

The first and foremost thing you’ve got to decide upon is how much you want to spend on your lehenga and outfits. Whether it’s for your big day or either of your pre and post wedding ceremonies, a set budget will help you in shortlisting the markets and the designers you’d be visitng for your shopping.

Body type

There’s literally a lehenga design for every body type out there and knowing what will further elevate your look is going to make lehenga shopping so much easier. Research beforehand & take guidance about the kind of flare, silhouette, and styles that would flatter your body type the most and pick a piece from that range.

Latest trends

If you’re one for trends and everything latest then research well before stepping out to buy your lehenga. If, what’s in and what’s not is going to rule your lehenga choice, it’s better to be well informed in advance.

Your personal style & aesthetics

We believe that a bridal lehenga should be a true reflection of who you are and hence, it is imperative that you pick a design that resonates with your heart and taste. Does your heart fancy classic & timeless pieces or would rather go with the hottest trends? Would you love to frolic at your soiree in a traditional bridal look or instead a contemporary one? What lehenga color does your heart calls out for? What is more important to you- comfort or style; or a blend of both? Ask yourself such questions to define your style so that you feel like yourself on your big day in your lehenga.

The fabric

Lehenga designs these days are available in distinctive fabrics and this factor must be considered while picking out your lehengas. A lot of fabrics work well in both summers and winters but, a velvet lehenga is summers is a big no-no while in winters, it’s nothing less than a savior! So, take the fabric of your lehenga into account.

The kind of look

The kind of look you’re desiring for yourself is a prime factor to be considered. Are you an OTT bride who’d love to go all extra with her lehenga design and jewellery or are you someone who swears by minimalism? Deciding upon the kind of look you’ve envisioned would help you in picking out a piece that complements your vision perfectly.

The season & time

While a lot of lehenga designs look stunning in any season and both day and night time soirees, a lot of ensembles don’t! Considering the season you’re getting married in and whether yours is a day function or a night one makes it easier for you to choose the fabric and color of your lehenga.

Keep an open mind

And, last but not the least, keep an open mind while choosing a lehenga design that’s suitable for you. While it’s great to have your vision clear beforehand but, being rigid and stuck with it might make it difficult for you. Be open to exploring other options ‘cuz you never know when you might walk into a store and end up falling in love with a lehenga that’s completely opposite to your vision but, now has your heart and soul!

Conclusion

Honestly, there’s no such thing as too much lehenga inspiration because the pool is deep and the choices endless. But, if you’re soon gonna kick-start your lehenga shopping, then this design book will not fail you!
