Wedding lehengas are something that every woman must have cherished about in some point of time in her life. Amongst the many traditional types of attire, lehengas are something that makes a woman look most beautiful and gorgeous on her D-day. Although there are some women and some communities that need the women to wear sarees on her wedding, many are also there, who come out of the cliché and break the tradition. However, even if you make this decision up in your mind that you will be wearing a lehenga on your wedding, you will find it quite difficult to choose the one that is most suitable for you.
What to buy?
Lehengas are basically three piece garments that have a choli or blouse on top, a dupatta or a stole to drape and a skirt or the lehenga itself to wrap around your waist. Although this is the basic pattern of a lehenga, there are a number of variations that are available in the market. The cut, style, design and the work done on the fabric are all different from each other.
When you are thinking of buying a bridal lehenga, it needs to be ensured that you choose something over-the-top, extraordinary and very elaborate for yourself. Unlike the simple and dainty, elegant and sober looking lehengas, wedding or bridal lehengas are all about pomp, glamour and beauty. Nowadays, the gotapatti and the zari embroidery works have been extremely popular. The works are intricate, and the use of gold and silver zari along with bridal colours such as red, maroon, fuchsia and orange and the like make the lehenga look extremely beautiful.
Where to buy from?
