Choosing a white lehenga

Gold and silver embroidery, delicate beadwork and Swarovski crystal work can accentuate your white lehenga and take it to an all new level. Besides, if you don’t want to go for pure white, you can opt for shades like pearl white, cream or ivory.

Apart from this, if you do not want to raise too many eyebrows by wearing shades of white at your wedding, then you can add another complementing colour to your ensemble. Pearl white and gold are not just a classic combination, but also a hot favourite with many fashion designers. You can also have a bright colour border (red, blue or rose gold) on your white lehenga, and have a choli in that same colour.

Another thing that you must keep in mind is that white lehengas will make you look a little heavy. That is why; you must opt for figure hugging cuts. But, if you have a slim figure, you can opt for flowing silhouettes, which looks similar to the bridal gown of the west.

Things to keep in mind

While wearing a white lehenga, keep these things in mind:

  • Choose your lingerie carefully; as you definitely would not want it to be seen through your lehenga!
  • Stay away from any kinds of dips and sauces.
  • Ensure that you have a colourful backdrop while clicking pictures. Light colour back drops and strong lights will make you look ghostly.
  • Add a pop of colour in your accessories, but let your white lehenga steal the limelight.
