Contrast Bridal Dupattas Are Making A Comeback!

BY Soha | 27 Feb, 2023 | 12303 views | 3 min read

ONCE. It's going to happen just once. And if you don't do it right, you might move on, but never really get over it. We're talking about your wedding pictures, what did you think?

Lets face it, we cannot even begin to calculate just how many cameras are going to be on you on your wedding day. Who'd not want to slay? If there's one thing (out of the many other things) that writing about weddings has taught me, it is the fact that every bride truly wants to stand out, really enjoy her big day... AND have stunning pictures to re-live the good times.

You have your outfits ready, and can go ahead and book the best photographer you can get convenient dates with. But we have another hack to make sure your pictures are 10x better than before!

Wear a contrasting second dupatta to really make your outfits pop! What? Don't think it was be as easy as that? Have a look at these brides who did just that and truly slayed at their weddings!

Subtle but beautiful, some pink to add softness
