BY Sakshi Saxena | 02 Nov, 2017
A lot of us dream of that 'perfect' bridal lehenga! For some of us it's the conventional red or pink lehenga, and for others, it's an offbeat variant, which is anything but conventional! For some, it is wearing a lehenga from a certain designer, and for a lot others, the price of the lehenga is the main concern and everything else really revolves around that! So when it comes to bridal lehengas, it mostly really depends on what style you want and/or how much you're willing to cough up for it. We are sure that it is the first thought that crosses you mind just as (or even before) your wedding is fixed!
