“Well, to be honest, I loved my wedding outfit. I bought my pretty pink lehenga months before my wedding day and loved every bit of it. But then my sister also happened to buy a lehenga for herself in the exact same colour. My regret was not that I bought a pink lehenga, but that my sister's lehenga was also of the same shade! So if I could go back in time, I would have not let her buy it!”

“I always wanted to wear a bright red lehenga on my D-Day, and that is exactly what I did! I found my perfect outfit and wore it with a lot of happiness and elegance. But little did I know that the bright red colour would mean that I will never be able to wear it again at any other wedding. After all, I don’t want to look like a bride at somebody else’s wedding!”

“I got married a long time back and totally loved my outfit when I saw it in the showroom. Heavy embroidery and zari work were all the rage then and I did not hesitate even a little bit before finalizing and buying it. The only thing I regret now is spending 70K on an outfit which I will never be able to wear again in my life, all thanks to its weight and design which has now probably gone out of fashion!”

“My wedding was in August, while it was still quite hot in Delhi. But while choosing the outfit, I did not pay much attention to the fabric of it. I got a very pretty floor length anarkali in raw silk and I regret that decision till date. I got so many compliments for my outfit, but I really wish I had picked a lighter, more summery fabric.”
