A bride-to-be has to decide so many elements, including her jewellery, makeup, hairstyle, but the significant aspect remains her couture. A bridal lehenga is a key element that should be decided foremost. However, this again is not easy. Not only you have to consider the style of the piece but also the tone.
About-to-be brides don’t actually face a lot of trouble deciding the hue of her lehenga skirt and the blouse. But the dupattas leave many scratching their heads. Both should be in contrast to the lehenga and each other. While you get one dupatta along with the lehenga set, the other one has to be purchased separately.
To help you make the best choice, we are here to assist with the ultimate colour guide. Check it out and nail your bridal look!
Add Sunshine Yellow To Your Bridal Look
Yellow and its shades are considered auspicious when it comes to a Hindu wedding or festivities. Yellow is also a versatile hue that goes well with bridal colours, such as red, pink and maroon. Since most of the bridal ensembles have rich gold zari work, you can pair a mustard yellow dupatta to match all the pieces. If not, go for a light neutral shade that too has golden embroidery.
Exude Love In Pink
Pink is known as the colour of love and romance. And when it is your marriage, don’t hold back from showing your love for your soon-to-be husband! If you are not going for conventional red and pink lehenga, adding a hint of traditional shades can elevate the bridal appearance and can also make you stand out. However, try to create a balance of dark and light tones. If you want to go for a minimalistic appearance, pick a light pink shade to go with your slightly dark lehenga and dupatta. Use the pink for draping and the other one to cover the head.
Add Hint Of Freshness In Green
Yes, we all love red. Most of us imagine ourselves in a red bridal joda as a bride. But when we actually start putting all the elements together, sometimes it feels like going overboard with red. If you are having the same feeling, add more colour and freshness to your bridal look. Go for a mint green dupatta to drape around your lehenga. It will add more glamour to the appearance. Ace designers Manish Malhotra has used pastel shades such as mint green for their new bridal collection.
Create Magic With Matching Dupattas
While some love to garner attention by playing with various hues, others like to create magic with fewer colours. It is not important to add to many elements and tones. You can keep it subtle with just two colours. Go for a matching blouse (backless blouse designs) and lehenga, club it with two dupattas of the same shade and embroidery. Take cues from the bride in the picture. She has used baby pink dupattas with her bright red lehenga. The border of the dupattas has a hint of red which is helping to bring the whole look together.
Give Elegant Vibes In Blue
Blue is known as the most eye-pleasing colour. If you have opted for heavy and regal fabric like velvet for your bridal lehenga, you should invest in something calmer to complete the bridal look. A simple blue net dupatta can never go wrong. Not only it will help you show off your amazing bridal hairstyle, but also will make you feel light. Make sure that the dupatta has a beautiful border with zardozi work. It will add more charm to the entire look!
