BY Soha | 27 Nov, 2018 | 497 views | 2 min read

Indian weddings mean 1 week, 100 people and 10 different functions. But who said you have to spend a BOMB on every function during the next wedding you attend, even the smaller ones? Just pull that saree from your Mom's closet that you've been eyeing for years, and revamp it to suit your style! Let us help you with the different ways you can get creative with your Mom's leheriya saree (yep, the same one that's been pushed to the back of the closet for years now!)

Mehendi Outfit For The Bride-To-Be

Lets get real- with all that mehendi on your hands and feet, would you really want to invest in a high-end mehendi outfit? Me neither! Then what could be better than your Mom's saree! You can get kurtis made out of it, or use it to create a completely new look! 

Or Use It As A Dupatta?

If you don't want to put in all that effort, you can simply pair a skirt and blouse with a leheriya dupatta and rock your functions!

We love how this bride included a thin strip of that leheriya border in her lehenga. You can create the same effect using your mom's saree!
