Not all brides wear lehngas, some go with the traditional attire like a saree. Infact South Indian brides and Bengali brides generally opt for a silk saree as their wedding trousseau. Needless to say that silk sarees look royal and chic, but addition of an elegant dupatta makes the entire look more flawless. Here are a few dupatta ideas to wear with your wedding saree….
Matching silk embroidered dupatta– When you opt for a similar color dupatta, its very important to match the exact shade of your saree. So if you are wearing a silk saree then go for a dupatta in silk crepe, chiffon or georgette, as natural fibers take dye in a better way. You can take a few motifs from your saree for inspiration and get them embroidered as a border on your dupatta.
Printed Dupatta– Taking a printed dupatta is another great way to add a little fun to your traditional avatar. Do match the border of the dupatta with the border of your saree for a matching look.
Go for contrasts– Contrast color embroidered dupatta’s are great to be worn with a subtle or a single color saree which has a subtle and light embroidery. Its great to highlight the dupatta with its embroidery and color in this case, leaving the saree to do wonders with its grace.
Net dupatta– If you are planning on a special hairdo which you want to flaunt then go for a net dupatta. A transparent fabric will allow your hairdo to peek through the dupatta.
Scallop dupatta– Scallop embroidery looks really impressive, and wearing a dupatta in this embroidery is a great way to add it to your bridal wear.
