As an Indian bride, you will need to wear dupattas for one or more of your wedding-related events. It is a crucial part of your attire which is going to appear in every photo of yours that is taken.

Double Dupatta

Double dupattas have an exquisite charm about them and more and more brides are opting for them. This gives you an opportunity to play around with colours and draping styles. You can choose a lighter shade for one of the dupattas or one with a contrasting shade to add a pop of colour. Here, note that the dupatta that you use as a veil should be of lighter material. If you are having a winter wedding then one of the dupattas can be a velvet one.

Sleeves As Dupattas

Fashionista Masoon Minawala looked absolutely stunning in this dazzling ice blue outfit. It was a novel idea to style her sleeves in this way such that they give the illusion of her wearing a dupatta. She managed to achieve the charm that a dupatta gives while avoiding the hassle of managing one.

Dupatta Doubling As A Train

Trains are not exclusive to gowns. You can have a long dupatta and fashion it as a train as the bride has done here. Just ensure that you use a lightweight dupatta so that it is easy to manage it and secure it firmly in place.

Cape Style Dupatta

If you want to give a western twist to your attire, then a cape style dupatta is a great option. You can either fashion it as a cape or bring it from behind and pin it on your shoulders. Looks gorgeous and is a great idea for your Sangeet or Reception.

With A Contrasting Inner Border

If you want to add a pop of colour then you can add a contrasting inner border to your dupatta and show it off in the way the bride has done here. It is also nice how the green on the border matches with her jewellery.

With Differently Shaped Borders

This is a trend which is all the rage now. A lot of brides are opting for scalloped dupattas but by going for a border like the one shown below is sure to catch the eye and impress everyone.

Pleated Dupatta With A Belt

This is by far the best way to ensure that your dupatta is held firmly in place. If you don’t want to show your dupatta, then you can pin it in simple pleats and then hold it in place with a belt. The belt will also help enhance the silhouette of the lehenga.

Salwar Suit Style

This is very popular amongst Pakistani brides and is now catching up in India also. Here, the dupatta is neatly pinned at the shoulder and the waist. The U-shaped gather at the neck amps up the appeal of your outfit.
