Complexion of the bride is very important while choosing a lehenga .Light colors like pink, sky blue, peach, sea green goes well with fair skinned brides.
For whitish complexion red , maroon and rust goes well. Purple can also be tried but it should have touch of red or maroon also into it.
Dark skinned tone brides can wear yellow, orange or bright blue with maroon contrast. This color enhances the tone of their skin .
In evening function deep navy and sapphire blue color with silver work goes well.
Gold, copper and maroon look stylish in morning function.
Do not make your lehenga to heavy otherwise it will be difficult to carry it .If you are having heavy lehenga and choli then take light dupatta or vice versa.
Though one should exercise and tone themselves for their special day but still brides with full figures should avoid wearing short cholis .
Bustier women should avoid heavy embroidery work on their choli. This add to the bust size. Also avoid wearing A line lehenga, wear full length with round neckline.
Short heighted bride should wear U or square neck line or otherwise full sleeves choli. Ask beautician to fold dupatta and drape it over shoulder with vertical border design falling from shoulder to knee .This gives a longer look.
Thin bride can experiment with halter cholis, deep backs and choli with thin straps.
Pear shaped brides can wear â€œAâ€ line lehenga with less volume as this will make them look bulkier.
Tall and thin brides should add as much volume as possible.
