5 Things to Keep in Mind While Buying Your Wedding Lehenga

Every bride has dreamt of that perfect wedding lehenga that she would wear on her D-day. It is also the most appreciated and talked about thing amongst others as the bride arrives at the wedding venue. So while you would have pictured yourself in a lehenga which Katrina Kaif wore in her movie, it might look disastrous for your body type. So before you spend the big bucks, there are a few factors that one must keep in mind while making the purchase.

Advance shopping

Do not rush. A lot of people select a particular store and decide to go to that store a month or just a few weeks before the wedding day and select a lehenga as per their choice. This is a mistake that you must avoid. In fact, your wedding dress should be selected, purchased, and altered as per the fit at least 4-5 months before your wedding. This will give you a lot of time to collect matching jewelry, clutch, bangles, and other accessories.


Every wedding has a budget and so is every wedding dress. Do not go over budget, instead, a smart way to get a great deal without spending additional amount is to shop for wedding lehengas online. E-stores don’t just have a large variety, they also allow you to compare prices and get a suitable deal.


The wedding season is critical and your lehenga should be purchased according to that time. If your wedding is taking place in the colder months, it is advisable to choose heavier wedding lehengas made of warm fabrics; however, for a summer wedding, select light fabrics such as net & georgette.


Wedding lehenga or designer bridal lehenga are available in a large variety of colors; however, if you want to look your best, don’t simply go with the trend. Instead, select a color that suits your skin color and the event perfectly. If you are having a theme wedding, select a color that goes with the theme.


The style and cut of bridal lehenga is extremely important. You may select from fish cut, mermaid style, ghagra, circular, or A-line. If you are slim, opt for flared lehenga; however, a voluptuous woman looks stunning in a straight fit lehenga.

Keep all the above mentioned factors in mind while buying your wedding lehenga. Also, to get the correct length, make sure to wear heels at the time of trials.
