12 Amazing New Things To Do To Your Lehenga That Will Make It Super Unique!
BY Sakshi Saxena | 16 Feb, 2017
Every bride wants to be a unique one- we bet you do too! So rather than running around for a unique lehenga, you could also consider making a few tweaks here and there, as well as adding new things that can really make your outfit pop! Here are some additions that can totally transform a lehenga!
Embroider it with your love story
This gorgeous lehenga of Kresha Bajaj, had her love story involving the beach, wine and dolphins embroidered on it. See it here
Mix and Match your Dupatta, Blouse & Skirt
This bride got a blouse from Rohit Bal, a lehenga skirt from Ekaya and a dupatta which was a rich banarsi vintage fabric. The result- something so unique that we haven't seen it on anyone else.
Add an unexpected dupatta that stands out
Instead of the usually matchy-matchy one, get a printed or unique dupatta that looks mistmatched but still goes with your lehenga- it really makes the outfit pop! We even wrote about Vihal, a bride who chucked her usual Benarasi dupatta and made a sheer one with sequins for herself!
Fun tassels that really stand out
If you are a quirky bride, then how about you get your own customised tassels which mean something to you or are generally just fun and colourful?
A waistbelt or a leather belt

A waistbelt is so in these days! Whether it is one that's inbuilt in the outfit, a gold one or even a leather belt- it really helps in putting the look together- especially if you have a waist to flaunt!
A brooch in an interesting way

A brooch doesn't necessarily have to be put on the same place- you can even get pretty creative with it! Pin it on the shoulder to hold the dupatta or even like this behind the blouse to hide those ugly hooks- looks super cute!
A new colour under the dupatta or lehenga border
Yup, a lot of brides do not pay a lot of attention to the colour of the border INSIDE the dupatta- you know when you turn it around? Well, that's what's gonna add the contrast to your photos when your face is gonna get photographed, so it is super important! You could even add a contrast colour to the lehenga border below or change the colour of the can-can! Will look great when you get your shoes photographed!

Carry a fun or stylish batua with your lehenga on your arm which matches with it! It can add a lot to a plain lehenga!

Could you ever imagine a leather jacket could look so glam with a lehenga? If you can carry it off in style, then why not?
Add attached cape-sleeves instead of a dupatta

Masoom Minawala from Miss Style Fiesta did the most genious thing for her Sangeet- attached her dupatta to the blouse.
Add a bow as a tie

If a leather jacket is too adventurous for you, then a sheer jacket can work well, especially if you're looking to cover up a bit! You can even take it and ditch the dupatta for a fusion look!
