Take into account the wedding venue i.e., where you’re doing the wedding, is it indoor or outdoors ? If it’s a beach wedding you’ll want to choose an outfit that sweeps the guests not the sandy floor 😂! A garden venue should’nt have a lehenga with too much net, because overtime it gets caught in stray branches you’re bound to fret!
