What fabrics or embellishments to choose from?
Swarovski crystals, gold or silver embroidery, pearl or beadwork, there are so many options to choose form to make your white bridal outfit look absolutely stunning. However if you are not keen on too much work or embellishments on your lehenga then go in for chikan or crochet fabrics on nets and georgettes.
It is important to pick the right jewelry when it comes to a white bridal lehenga. Pair your outfit with off white pearls, polki or jadau set in gold, diamonds or antique gold. Avoid bright gold jewelry with your whites to make sure your jewelry does not over power your outfit but plays the role of enhancing it.
Opt for a light blush on your cheeks and tinted glossy lips or deep maroon lips with long lashes for a dramatic look.
Choose footwear in sync with the work on your lehenga. If your white lehenga has work in silver, opt for heels in silver or white or clear stone work but make sure your footwear isn’t too blingy for it’ll kill the elegance of your white outfit.
Pulling off a white ensemble isn’t everyone’s cup of tea coz where any other bright colored outfit can be topped up with bling and jazz, it’s important to keep all your accessories subtle in a way that they don’t call for attention but rather blend with your bridal outfit in a way that each piece takes your complete look one notch higher.
