Jewellery is the perfect adornment that adds on to the beauty of a bride. So, here is how you can team up your golden lehenga with the perfect jewellery pieces:

  • A heavily embroidered lehenga with a short heavy blouse and a net dupatta will look good with kundan or stone jewellery. A scoop-necked blouse or a short blouse with a bridal lehenga in gold thread and heavy jewellery makes for a great combination for the bride.
  • Engraved jewellery is pretty popular in Rajasthan and Gujrat. In jadau jewellery, different kinds of gems like pearls, sapphires, rubies, diamonds and emeralds are embedded in melted gold with Polki (an uncut form of diamond) as a centre stone to give it a stunning look and design. These designs are fairly popular for bridal jewellery as well.
  • Gold is the most preferred choice for many brides-to-be. Gold is actually considered to be auspicious as it is the symbol of Goddess Lakshmi. Another reason why gold jewellery is liked by many is due to its durability and everlasting shine. Lehengas with bright contrasts and borders look amazing when paired with gold jewellery.

#4. Makeup to complete the look

A minimalistic approach for makeup will work wonders for you. Copper-based makeup will subtly add definition to your eyes. With a hint of colour on the cheeks as well as on the lips, the contrast part will act as the bling. To add certain drama to your whole look, smokey eyes and long lashes will be enough. Do not be a rainbow by mixing random colours on the face that are not even present on the lehenga. Even a colourful kajal and eyeliner works well with this look.
