But with the help of small-time designers and the quick flow of images on the internet, getting the same bridal lehenga made is not at all a nightmare anymore.
Due to a large number of rituals, the wedding ceremonies are spread across multiple days and have become a very expensive affair. And since it’s a once in a lifetime experience, the bride would like to look different for each and every function. Styles, trends and shades of the bridal lehengas have evolved in the past decade hence giving brides the chance to experiment with new fabrics and colors rather than the same old reds, maroons and golds. Today’s designs combine beautiful Indian detailing with modern cuts, minimalistic and elegant embroidery with mature colors.
A bridal lehenga must be chosen keeping in mind the following —
- Understand the body shape – heavy bottom, heavy top, hour glass shape, slim or heavy from all sides shape.

The next step would be to fix your budget. If on a tight budget, show up some creativity and dig some designs from magazines and hunt for a skillful tailor and get something similar stitched to perfection. Decide the color you’d like to wear and finally choose the fabric that you feel will look best on your body structure. Brides look gorgeous in georgette, silk, chiffon and brocade.
