Bridal dupatta draping tips

Bridal dupatta is one of the most important parts of a bride’s attire. Your overall look depends on the way you drape your dupatta and carry it. Many brides prefer to pair their lehenga with a single dupatta, whereas there are many who go for double dupattas to create that modish and contemporary look.

Whether you opt for a single dupatta or a double-one, there are so many ways in which you can drape your dupatta. The way you drape your dupatta will change your whole look and add so much charm to your bridal attire.

A belt is a perfect accessory and will add that glam to your look. Add a waist belt to secure your dupatta in place and achieve an effortless bridal look. The belt will add that touch of modernity and take your whole look to another level. You will not have to worry about handling your dupatta.

Another stylish way that we absolutely adore is creating contrasting layers by carrying two completely different bridal dupattas. You can choose dupatta of different colours and materials to create that stunning look. Break the color monotony and experiment with the dupattas.
