Shopping for a wedding lehenga is a big deal. This is the moment that you have been waiting for since the first time you saw a real bride. Every girl wants her wedding lehenga to match her personality and be special. This desire ultimately translates into a huge bill which can bother anyone. Well, getting a perfect wedding lehenga doesn’t always have to be an expensive deal.

So, we have some tricks and tips for you to buy the ultimate wedding lehenga.

1. Make Your Blouse The Important Part Of The Outfit

The cost of the wedding lehenga is directly proportional to the work on it. All-over work was in vogue till last year, but now the trend has changed. But, brides these days have started experimenting with their wedding lehenga by keeping it simple with heavy embroidered blouse and accessorising it with heavy jewellery. Ultimately its the face and the neck that gets the maximum attention when we look at a bride on her wedding day.

#Tip: Go for a light skirt and a heavy embroidered blouse.

2. Forget Ready Made Wedding Lehenga And Go All Customised

If you are on a very tight budget, then this trick can save you a lot of money. Go to the market and gather the material of the wedding lehenga yourself. Not only would you be saving a lot of money but you will be exposed to a lot of different types of fabrics, borders, latches and dupattas. Trust us, it will be a wonderful experience.

Forget about the embroidery, as the main cost of the wedding lehenga is directly attributable to the amount of embroidery. Instead go for self-fabric and Indian handlooms like bandhej, brocade, rich velvets and silks. These fabrics have a beauty of their own which won’t be harsh on your pocket. By investing in such fabrics, you will be able to have a heavy lehenga which is not expensive.

4. Don’t Ignore The Dupatta

You might consider dupatta just a piece of your outfit which needs to be heavy just like your wedding lehenga. But, this isn’t true, a dupatta need not be that heavy. You can go for a light or minimal embroidered dupatta, with heavy lehenga choli. In case you are opting for a dupatta with some embroidery, you can go for some buttis or sequins, to keep the costs in check. Moreover, a simple dupatta will bring down the cost of your wedding lehenga and will also highlight your blouse and skirt.

#Tip: Zero embroidered dupatta can substantially reduce the cost of the wedding lehenga.

5. Borders Are Important In A Wedding Lehenga

Borders come in all shapes and styles. They can be cheaper than a bar of chocolate and more expensive than your diamond ring. Borders in a wedding lehenga play an essential part but, check out these lehengas without border. Don’t they look gorgeous? Try eliminating the border in your wedding lehenga or if you want one, then go for a minimal one.

#Tip: Go for a minimal border on your wedding lehenga it will cost you less because of minimal embroidery and work.
