We know that every bride secretly nurtures a love for more than just her fiance- a love for lehengas. We understand- the sheer choices available in the industry when it comes to lehengas is ridiculously great. There’s every kind of fabric that can be used in one- whether it is a summer wedding or a winter one, a lehenga is perhaps the single most dynamic outfit there is when it comes to traditional wear. Plus, there’s all kinds of lehengas depending on the occasion you’d like to don one for- be it a cocktail evening, or a reception, or the wedding itself- there’s a lehenga for every occasion!
But for brides who just don’t get the buzz around the gorgeous garment, we hear you. There’s the hassle of holding on to the dupatta ALL THE TIME, even if you pin it up well, there’s chances you’ll need a touch up check to make sure everything’s in place. Gowns, on the other hand, allow for a lot more movement and can be altered to fit the occasion, which is probably why so many women are opting for gowns to rock their reception ceremonies. After all, who doesn’t want to go hands free after all the hullabaloo of the wedding?!
