Use A Belt

A belt is a great way to hold shawls neatly in place. You can fashion a belt out of the same material as the lehenga or go for a contrasting colour.

Velvet Shawl

Velvet dupattas immediately take your outfit up several notches. You can wear a plain one or one which is embellished with embroidery. This is also a great idea to remain warm in winter weddings. You can also opt to go for a velvet stole for winter weddings.

In A Contrasting Pattern

Your dupatta can be your tool to bring something different to your costume. This striped dupatta is a visual delight and gives a much-needed break from the identical blouse and lehenga. Or you can also choose a dupatta in a contrasting colour to break the monotony of the outfit. 


Drape It Like A Cape

By draping the dupatta across your shoulders, you achieve a cape look. The only downside here is that it may be a little challenging to carry it off. Ensure that it is held well in place with pins. 


Double Dupatta

Single vs double dupatta is one of the significant wardrobe choices that you have to make as a bride. There is an unmistakable traditional charm which a double dupatta style exudes. And if you have decided to go with double draping, then there are many choices within that. The rule of thumb is that the lighter dupatta is used as a veil to cover the head and the heavier one is draped across the body. Another thing to keep in mind is that the dupatta on the head is closer to your skin, so choose a colour that goes along with your skin tone. Pin the dupattas well in place so that they don’t move or get tangled with each other. 

If you are a winter bride, then you can choose a pashmina or a velvet shawl as one of your dupattas. If your lehenga is relatively simple, then make sure that one of the dupattas is intricately worked. 


You can use one of the dupattas to add a pop of colour to your ensemble. You can either choose a bright colour or a lighter shade of the rest of the outfit. 


The standard style is to use one of the dupattas as a veil. But, you can layer them up and wear both of them in a cape style.
