Yes, you read it right. Wearing designer, plain or embellished sneakers is an in-thing these days. With sneakers, you can show your funky side along with staying super-relaxed.

While wearing the flats, you need to keep a few things in mind:

  • New mojiri or juttis can tend to bite for a couple of days. So, make sure you wear them a few days before your wedding to avoid any blisters or shoe bite.
  • Do keep band-aid or cotton handy in case of shoe bites. Or, you can even stick the band-aid in the shoes beforehand to avoid blisters.

  • And since you will be wearing flats on your big day, make sure you mention this to you tailor or designer so that they can alter the length of your lehenga accordingly.
  • Ballets and flats might slip on the marble so make sure you test them before the big day or buy them with anti-slip sole.
  • If you are getting customised footwear, then do purchase your lehenga before so that you can match your footwear with your dress unless you are going for the contrast look.
