Rather than going for the conventional look, you can experiment by trying out different drapes and patterns. This doesn t mean only lehenga-choli, even saris, gowns, jackets and ghagras can be mixed and matched to get a unique look. But makes sure you try them out in advance to find your correct look and correct fit to get the perfect bridal look.

#2 Go sober on either lehenga or choli

You need to be extra careful when choosing the lehenga-choli. For example, if your lehenga is embroidered heavily, then go subtle on the choli or vice versa, to get that royal look. Avoid an embroidered look from top to bottom as it might not look good. Another way is to add a jacket choli on the top and have a nice silk lehenga to complete the look.

#3 Go for perfectly-fitting outfits

Go for outfits which make you look graceful, even if they are not the 'in' ones. To look special on your D-day, it is important to wear comfortable and perfectly fitting clothes. Because, having maximum comfort on your special day will help you move around and do things in a better manner.

#4 Check detailing of the embroidery

Do not forget the detailing of embroidery in your outfits. Pick the most royal yet subtle embroidery. For example, you can go for zardosi, add some kaanch (glass) and resham (silk) in correct proportions and even opt some sequence for some extra 'oomph'.

#5 Choose trendy colours

Last, but the most important tip, is to choose the right colours that suit you the best. The trendy colours of this season are surely the blues, wines and purples. But if you like pink, then you can try it out and match with the blues and purples. Moreover, pastels are also known to be a favourite with brides.
