We know how crazy bridal lehenga shopping can be! Brides are often so indecisive about what to pick for their big day. And rightly so! You get married only once and you do want to look your very best. No compromises there! But if you take our advice, you should also keep your personality in mind when choosing the shaadi outfit. The lehenga should be gorgeous but it should also be true to who you are as a person. It just makes you feel more confident and look even more spectacular. So ladies, here’s how to pick a wedding lehenga for your personality.
1. The free-spirited bride

You’re free-spirited and fun, and you know that no matter what you wear, you’re going to charm your way through the wedding. A lehenga that is minus the extra flares, that can sometimes be a bit overwhelming, is just perfect for you. Muted tones and subtle embroidery is the way to go.
2. The fashionista bride

For the girl who eats, drinks, sleeps fashion, her outfit should be one that gives other brides-to-be some major wedding outfit goals. Go all out and choose colours, styles and silhouettes that are all the rage.
3. The sophisticated bride

And girl, trust us, when you walk into the room, people do stop and stare. While you don't want anything too dramatic for the wedding day, you sure are looking for class and an outfit that is timeless. Your wedding lehenga should be sophisticated and subtle and we also believe that a vintage style lehenga will really flatter your personality.
4. The shy bride

You want to keep it nice and simple. But since it’s your wedding, you do need to step it up just a little bit! Go in for a traditional lehenga that’s not too blingy or in your face. But do make sure it has a few of those wow elements to make you look like a stunning bride.
5. The bride who loves taking risks

So, with the wedding lehenga as well, you should not let some fashion norms come in your way. Move away from the typical bridal colours and cuts, and we swear, it’s only going to make you stand out! Experimenting is the key to a wedding lehenga that’s true to your personality.
6. The girly-girl bride

Pink is like your favourite colour and your shaadi outfit has been on your mind even before you turned 20! And you want your lehenga to look totally out of this world. But nothing too bold or dramatic. An outfit with intricate embroidery, lots of sequin work and pretty colour combinations is just what you need.
7. The athletic bride

It goes without saying that you have a body to flaunt. A lehenga that shows off those perfectly toned abs, and cuts that flatter your curves… that’s how your outfit should be. Keep the work and flare to a minimum so as to flatter your athletic style.
8. The romantic bride

You’ve dreamt of your Cinderella moment for a long long time and you’re known as the romantic one of your girl squad.
