Whether you're the bride, her sister or her bestie, when it comes to wedding festivities and decking up for them, we all like to go for comfort over style. Let’s admit it, you would rather dance than fuss over your dupatta all night long. Yes, a dupatta does play a vital role in bringing your ethnic outfit together but you can always choose not to wear one! How? With these stunning alternatives of course!
These stunning outfits are all the inspiration you need before you go shaadi shopping.
If you’re celebrating your big day on a hot summer afternoon, choosing an outfit with softer tones, such as pastels is a good idea. Ditch the dupatta and go with a long, flowing cape instead. Bridesmaids can later pair the cape with basic denims and t-shirt to add an ethnic vibe to their OOTD.
Don't want to cape it? Wear a sheer jacket instead! We love how this peach Astha Narang lehenga set comes with a matching sequinned full-length jacket. You don't have to bother about a dupatta and better yet, you can wear all three pieces as separates later!
A gown with an attached drape - how gorgeous is this look? Say goodbye to the regular anarkalis and go for an unconventional gown like this Shantanu & Nikhil masterpiece. It's stylish and a spectacular choice for your cocktail night.
PS: If you're not into typical wedding colours, grey with antique gold work is huge this season!
God, we're in love with this Papa Don't Preach creation! The 3D floral lehenga paired with an embellished ivory ribbon-around-a-bomb blazer is such a fun look for your mehendi. If quirky is your second name, this outfit should be your wishlist!
Be on-trend with and give your favourite lehenga-choli a quirky twist by ditching your dupatta for a short embellished jacket. If you want to wear an old lehenga at a friend's wedding without looking like you’re repeating your outfit, this is indeed the perfect way!
Want to ditch your dupatta but still look like you’re wearing one? We got you, kween! Opt for a blouse with exaggerated cape sleeves just like this bride did! It's such a stylish upgrade to a basic lehenga set.
Steal the spotlight with a stunning gown that’ll keep people talking for days! To add to the drama, this bride opted for one with a long trail and it immediately reminded us of Priyanka Chopra's wedding gown with a 75-foot long trail!
While brides are ditching the dupatta, I'm still waiting for mine to get stuck in some guy’s watch! Till then, do let me know which one of these is your fave.
