Before you visit the store, you must absolutely do some online research to have a clear vision of what type of wedding outfit you want. Millennials and new age brides are more open to experimenting with newer looks and contemporary designs. However, there are so many offbeat trends that may not go well with your taste and choices.

This is the reason why prior research is crucial before you visit the store. Even if you are shopping virtually, you must do some research to understand and visualize your ideal wedding outfit. 

2. Comfort over trends

Indians are ditching the normal lehengas and basic indo-western outfits. Even couturiers are bringing more mesmerizing and contemporary designs to their collection. There are so many innovative trends that we have seen so far. Some of them may be eye-pleasing but not comfortable. It is very important that you choose comfort over fashion trends. Make sure that you’re comfortable donning that look. 

We are not saying that you should go for something obsolete or stick around the basics. You should experiment and choose an outfit that adds a charming definition to your look. However, you must be comfortable carrying that look. 

3. Invest in a piece that you can re-style later

You may not want to wear that same piece again and again. But, you can’t let that ensemble become a dead statement. Instead of keeping that outfit in your closet for years, you must be very mindful and choose an outfit that you can reinvent and re-style later. There are so many ways that you can re-style and create an eclectic modern look. You can play with the dupatta, blouse, or add a statement dupatta or jacket to re-style it. 

4. Choose your jewellery wisely

Ace the look with the right jewellery. Whether you go for contrasting jewellery or all matching, make sure it goes well with your outfit. If you are donning a heavy jewellery set, make sure that your dupatta and blouse are minimal and lightweight. Otherwise, it will look clumsy and will overshadow your jewellery set. Therefore, it is very crucial that you plan your jewellery wisely. 

5. Plan your ideal dupatta draping style in advance
