You’re an Indian bride, so ofcourse, almost everyone around wants to accompany you! So, the more the merrier right? Sadly, NO! You don’t want to listen to too many people. #Yikkesss So, time to be uptight and take ONLY those who will help you choose right (Your mom, his mom, sisters or the best friend – THAT’S ALL)

Lehenga followed by jewellery? Uhhh NO!

Many brides purchase their bridal jewellery after purchasing the lehenga #TotalFail. Remember you can always make amendments to your lehenga work according to the jewels but is it possible to do the other way round? *Budget woes*

 If you want to be on trend, you NEED to be on time, the early bird doesn’t get much in the world of fashion.(#NoRushingPlz) If you want your lehenga to be on fleek, freeze your lehenga 3 months before the wedding week.

Wedding Theme Alert!

So you have decided to do a Jodha Akbar sort of theme – you know, all royal and vintage. And then you choose a lehenga that is funky and modern age? *Facepalm*. We know you want to stand out but not like a sore thumb 😜! So, wait till you finalise your décor theme to buy the outfit of your dreams.

PS – In matching to the theme, always think coordinated NOT twining 😇

 We all lust over Sabyasachi’s bridal collection (I am in awe of his lehenga ALL THE TIME #LoveStruck). But, you’ve gotta think of your pocket, before you lock it. So, instead of being sloppy, look for a local designer ‘coz ORIGINAL IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN COPY 😇

DON’T Wear Your Wedding on your Sleeve!

 Yes he’s pampering you with all those juices and sweet talk, but DON’T ever spill too many beans about your wedding to the sales fleet. We get that you want to gush, but if you don’t want inflated prices you better stay hush! Destination wedding = Expensive MRPs 😱

More choices = More FOMO 🙈

Try as many outfits as your age (#ResearchAlert 😜)! But, the more you try, the more you’re confused. #NoFun

So remember to try enough but not many that you have FOMO (Thank You Dear Zindagi 😇)

Last Minute Love💗

Collect your lehenga from the designer a week before the big day, AFTER one last outfit trial so that they can help with any last minute alterations. Also, discuss with them how to store it properly till the big reveal 💖

Keep it the RIGHT LENGTH!
