How to Reuse Your Wedding Lehenga

We are here to give you five awesome tricks on how you can reuse your wedding lehenga.

1. Reuse the Blouse

Most of the lehenga blouses are heavily embroidered with mirrors, kantha, zardosi, pearls and stones. They look extremely beautiful but due to a lot of embroideries, they are usually heavy. Hence, you can reuse your bridal blouse with a plain saree with a lot of flares or reuse it with a plain long skirt and a nice hairdo or you can team your embroidered blouse with a plain lehenga and plain dupatta

2. Reuse the Skirt

Teaming your wedding lehenga with a long embellished jacket will bring a wow factor to your outfit.

3. Reuse your Lehenga Dupatta

There is no specified rule that you have to wear your lehenga as a set. You can break them wear them separately as per your whims and fancies. So, if you have a heavy embellished lehenga dupatta then you can stitch it into a beautiful kurti and flaunt the look in evening parties or functions. Or just pair it with salwar suits you already have in your closet. You can also get you dupatta stitched into a beautiful blouse. Moreover, you can also use your dupatta as a saree.

 4. Turn it Into an Anarkali Suit 

The best way to reuse your wedding lehenga is to turn it into an anarkali suit which will definitely fetch you loads of compliments. Depending on the style of your lehenga you can either stitch the blouse and lehenga together and add a belt at the waist and have your suit ready. You can even attach a simpler blouse with the lehenga if your blouse is heavily embroidered.  Thus, transforming your lehenga into an anarkali will look less bridal even though it is equally embellished.

5. Make Home Accessories

This may sound a little weird but if you don't want to rent your lehenga or couldn't find a better use for it then, you can reuse your wedding lehenga by making home accessories from it. Won't it be great to have a house full of scarfs, cushions covers,  bags, clutches, photo frames and other home accessories that will remind you of your big day?
