- Planning to wear a four-tier neckpiece? Think again! Your wedding outfit needs to be heavy because you obviously need to look like the bride, so it's a wise step to go low on the jewellery. Keep the heavy varmala in mind and let your neckpiece be subtle. You can let other pieces of your jewellery stand out, like heavy jhumkas or a gorgeous maathapatti.
- Kamarbandhs sure look pretty on that shapely waist, especially if you're wearing a really low-waist lehenga; but consider the fact that it might poke you every time you bend to touch someone's feet. And yes, that happens an awful lot in our weddings ;)
- While the dupatta you drape over your shoulders can be heavy, ensure that the one you're going to use to cover your head is extremely light-weight. You don't want a silly 2 kilo dupatta bogging you down on the most important day of your life.
- Steer clear from any uncomfortable piece of lingerie or shape wear on your wedding day. There are various other ways to hide that happy tummy of yours, like a high waisted lehenga, a corset choli or strategic dupatta drape.
- Indian weddings are a teary affair. So, ditch your powder-based and cream-based makeup, and ensure that you look every bit gorgeous even after the vidaai ;)
- Save your glittery pair of stilettos for another occasion because your wedding is not the ideal day for it, especially if you're not too comfortable with strutting around in towering heels. Instead, go for pretty wedges or platform heels that support your feet.
Bonus Tip: Always keep your heel height in mind while deciding the length of your lehenga.
Don't add to the typical bridal stress and nervousness with these uncomfortable fashion items. Be a happy bride :)
