Design
Lacha/Lachchas have different type of work done on them like embroidery or mirror work. Wearing a heavy and trendy lachcha for a big function is catching on now. Most brides wear ghagra for their wedding engagement, mehndi function and the reception. The work that is done on the ghagras or lachchas is elaborate and very intricate, at times. Zardosi, in-laid with stones, antique and gold work or sequins on them form part of the embroidery. When it is a part of a bridal collection there is a lavish use of gold and antique threads.

Convenient to wear, easy to manage even if it is very heavy, colour, craft and custom made are some of the plus points that go in favour of this beautiful and gorgeous attire-- it is a must in a bride's wardrobe.
