How to feel confident in your bridal lehenga

Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life, and it’s natural to want to look and feel your best. The title of this blog is lehenga, but these tips can apply to any choice of outfit! Choosing the perfect wedding ensemble can be a daunting task, but once you find or create the one, it’s important to feel comfortable in it. Here are some tips that'll help you feel confident so you can enjoy the day instead of worrying about how you look!

1. Choose an outfit that flatters your body type
When it comes to wedding lehengas, gowns and sarees there are a variety of styles, cuts, and designs to choose from. It’s important to choose something that flatters your body type and accentuates your best features. For example, if you'd like to minimise your waist, go for an A-line cut with lots of flare to balance out your proportions. If you have an hourglass figure, choose a lehenga with a fitted blouse and flared skirt to accentuate your curves. An A-line silhouette isn't just for lehengas, you can still achieve this look with a well proportioned gown. Which brings us to our next point...

2. Make sure it fits perfectly 
 
It’s essential to get your wedding ensemble tailored to your exact measurements. Ill-fitting clothes can make you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious, so it’s important to ensure that your lehenga fits perfectly. Our service includes a fitting and adjustment as close to your big day as you need it, so you can be sure that you look perfect in your outfit. If you feel more comfortable in flats than heels, let your designer know so they can take this into account when measuring the length. You'll be walking confidently when you're comfortable in what you're wearing. Specifics such as the length of the blouse are crucial to get right to flatter your curves, so do ensure you see a reputable tailor or designer to make sure measurements are taken correctly.

3. Accessorize with confidence
Accessories can elevate your wedding ensemble and complete your look. Choose jewellery, shoes, and a clutch that complement your design and make you feel confident. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles and colours to create a unique look that reflects you, after all it is your big day! For example if your ensemble is red but you'd like a contrast, jewellery with elements of green or another colour such as turquoise can really liven up your look and bring your personality into it.

4. Practice walking
 
Walking in a lehenga or gown, particularly with can-can/netting can be tricky, especially if you’re not used to wearing one. Practice walking in your lehenga before your wedding day to make sure you're confident sitting, standing or bowing down (depending on the type of ceremony you will be having). You can also consider wearing your outfit around the house for a few hours to get used to the weight and movement of the fabric. 

5. Embrace your individual style
 
Ultimately, feeling confident in your wedding ensemble comes down to embracing your individual style and personality. Don’t be afraid to add your own personal touch to your lehenga or gown, whether it’s a bold colour or unique embroidery. Your wedding day is about celebrating your love and your unique journey as a couple, so let your outfit reflect that celebration! 
 
Bonus tip 
Enlist the help of a family member on the day; they will be sticking with you like glue, fluffing out your can-can when you sit down, making sure your dupatta isn't out of place for photos, and topping up your lipstick. Knowing that a trusted person is there with you will take one less thing off your mind, allowing you to really take in the day and enjoy it to the fullest!

In conclusion, whatever you're wearing, it'll always look infinitely better if you are confidently smiling and genuinely feeling comfortable. Ensuring you choose the right cut, get the perfect fit, practice in your outfit and embrace your individual style, you'll be sure to look and feel your best on your special day.
