How To Style Your Wedding Lehenga In Different Ways!

BY Garvita | 20 Jun, 2019 | 8778 views | 4 min read

Remember how much effort went behind picking a wedding lehenga for yourself? But now that the wedding is over, what about that? We're sure it must be safely packed in trunk, and lying in your cupboard! Done and Dusted! Never wearing it again, apart from may be karva chauth or a super close one's wedding. *sobs*

But for the amount of money that goes into a wedding lehenga, it definitely deserves to be worn again! And come on, it's too pretty to be worn just once!!! However, reusing a wedding lehenga seems like a far-fetched idea when you want it to look fresh and unique every time you style it. Because who likes to repeat clothes! :P 

To make the ride smoother for you, we have curated some amazing, innovative styles to reuse your wedding lehenga! They're bound to make you go weak in the knees, ladies. So get, set and BOOKMARK!

Here's a video that can be of great help!. And to know the idea behind each look, just read on!!

#1 Carry A Blazer

Give that dupatta a miss and layer your lehenga skirt with a chic blazer instead! It's cool! Fuss-free. And definitely not done to death [until now ;)]. 

#2 Add A Modern Vibe With A Short Kurta

You can always balance your heavy lehenga skirt with a lightweight short kurta! It gives you a break from the conventional blouses and easily adds a modern vibe to your look. 

#3 Layer A Denim Jacket

We know this style is not everyone's cup of tea, but if you're someone who loves experimenting and doesn't like mainstream outfit ideas then you can definitely give it a try! Would highly recommend you to style this look for a BFFs Mehendi!

#4 Layer A Long Cape

This one's super apt for any season depending on what material of cape you choose! Like you can pick silk for winters and a sheer one for summer weddings. Pair it with a simple blouse beneath, and tadaa good to go! 

#5 Shine Bright In A Shimmery Crop Top

Are you an OTT fan? Then this style is for you! Ditch the blouse and style your lehenga skirt with a shimmery crop top instead! It'll be a perfect blend of modernity with traditional. Psstt.. keep the jewellery light, else you'll attract way to much attention!

#6 Oh! That Timeless Vibe With A Peplum Top

One has literally forgotten peplum tops, and pairing it with a lehenga has definitely not been done before! Wear it to a day (destination) wedding or at a mehndi ceremony, you'll definitely set some majorrr wedding fashion trends out there.

#7 Look Sassy In An Off-Shoulder Top

Only if you're sure that you'll be comfortable in pulling off an off shoulder top, then go ahead and pair it with your wedding lehenga skirt right awayyy!

#8 You Can Never Go Wrong With A White Shirt

We remember how Anushka made this look popular, and it's definitely here to stay! If you couldn't wear it for your mehndi then it's the right time fulfill your outfit dreams while reusing your ethereal wedding lehenga! Don't forget to add a contrasting satlada haar!

#9 Switch To A Lighter Blouse

One cannot even dream of wearing their wedding lehenga to someone else's wedding, until and unless they want guests to get confused about the bride!! HAHA!!. But you can always make it look lighter by opting for a lighter/ plain blouse and a light dupatta! 

#10 Pair It With A Long Anarkali

Though with this your lehenga skirt would be hardly visible but trust us, it'll look gorgeous! You can either go for a contrasting Anarkali or one in a similar palette of that of your skirt! 
Woahh! Amidst writing this post, I already styled my wedding lehenga mentally, and can't wait to wear it at a mehndi, wedding or any other ceremony! Can someone send me an invite already?
