- If yours is a summer wedding or you are not habitual of wearing
lehengas, avoid wearing such bridal dress fabric that will make you feel
uncomfortable with rising temperature. Use some light fabrics like
bridal chiffon fabric or Georgette fabric. Chiffon is a very elegant
sheer fabric which has a graceful drape. Georgette has a grainy sheer
texture. However, it is not as soft and lustrous as chiffon but it
drapes well and is easy to maintain. In a chiffon lehenga as well as in
Georgette lehenga, you
will be all comfortable to perform the wedding rituals.
- The royal silk lehenga is
the best for weddings to be held in the winter season. It is really
elegant. No other fabric drapes on the body in the same way as silk
does. However, if you find them to be a bit expensive, you can go for
some special occasion fabric like satin. A
satin lehenga will feel
smooth against your skin and will prove to be a cheap bridal lehnga as
compared to the one made from silk fabric.
- If you want to bring a crispy feel in your wedding dress, go for an
organza lehenga. Organza has a stiff drape that falls away from the body
in wide cones. Therefore choose this fabric only if you are slim.
Overweight women can look even more heavier in this crispy fabric.
- Plus size women should always choose some fabric that has a nice
drape and which tends to cling to the body. As such, a wedding lehenga
made from such fabrics as silk, chiffon or Georgette is best for them.
A crepe lehenga will also
give a beautiful drape that falls into soft, wide flares. However it is
an expensive and luxurious fabric with a dull sheen which also tends to
shrink a lot. If you can afford and are ready to spend a good amount of
money, you can go for crepe wedding lehenga too.
- When you are ready to spend a fortune on your 'one time bridal
dress', you can even buy a lehenga made of brocade which is a rich
elegant fabric woven on a jacquard loom and is usually stiff. It is a
historically royal fabric which was worn by the queens of bygone era.
However, you should also be used to of wearing such heavy dresses before
buying a brocade lehnga.
- A net lehenga will give a
glamorous look to your wedding as net is a very fancy fabric. You can
choose some elegant fabric like chiffon, Georgette or silk as its lining
for making it a really beautiful wedding dress.
- Last but not least, if your skin is allergic to synthetic fabrics,
try to make the lehnga with some skin friendly fabric. Go for organic
silk or other such fabrics. Cotton
lehenga made with fine and soft cotton with sheen can also do
provided you decorate it with some special fabrics and trims like net
and laces etc. You can even have a net lehenga with a lining of fine
soft cotton. The aim should be ultimate comfort so that the bride too
can enjoy her own wedding!
