This is one question that I am sure all the brides would be miffed with for sure. WHAT TO DO WITH THE BEAUTIFUL BRIDAL ATTIRE once the wedding is over? You love it, but it can't be used much.
Every girl spends endless days planning that perfect wedding outfit, does a million visits to various stores before picking up THE ONE. And after the wedding day literally its biting dust unless you decide to flaunt it on your BHAI or BEHEN'S wedding. That's the only time you can afford to wear something that extravagant and heavy.
But we understand your pain and we have some superb DIY ideas that will make you jump in glee as your adorable wedding outfit can see the day of the light again, with a few little changes though.
Read on to find out the many ways in which you can effectively Re use your Bridal Lehnga -
1. TURN THE DUPATTA INTO A SAREE
Your dupatta is almost as heavily embellished as your lehnga. Why don't you add some matching fabric to the 2.5 mts(the dupatta can be in placed as the pallu) and turn it into a decent saree? Get a new blouse stitched, play around with a new jacket or use the choli as it is, that is your call. It will surely look stunning and you can radiate just like you did on your D day!
2. ADD ANOTHER ELEMENT
Since the bridal lehnga needs to be toned down for future use, you can add a stylish jacket on top or maybe a shrug to cover up the delicate piece and not look over powering. The shrugs, capes and long jackets are totally going to add many style miles to your persona as well.
3. WEAR THE LEHNGA WITH A LIGHT CHOLI OR A CROP TOP
Add an indo western twist to the desi ensemble by teaming up the skirt with a chic less embellished but fine / formal crop top and a lighter dupatta. It will definitely create a new look altogether.
4. MAKE A SUIT OUT OF YOUR LEHNGA
Just stitch together the choli with the skirt. And a new heavy ANARKALI is ready! It is definitely more wearable and your real elements of the outfit are not marred in any way. An all new bride altogether!
5. EXPERIMENT WITH PARTS OF THE LEHNGA
If the fashionista in you may dare, consider using the patches of intricate embellishments and borders on new pieces. You will be giving birth to an all new looking designer ensemble without losing that personal touch and connect with your original piece. Its re creation and not destruction, so go ahead, play around!
