Every bride aspires to wear an outfit that is incredibly exquisite, elegant, and lovely as she makes her way down the aisle. The majority of brides in India choose bridal lehengas as their outfit of choice. A choli, a dupatta, and a lavishly embellished skirt are all included in bridal lehengas.

While some lehengas have simple work, others have intricate thread work; either way, they add to the overall appeal of each bride. Every outfit is made more beautiful by embellishments and embroidery.

Have you ever felt overburdened while having a lehenga sewed simply due to the overwhelming selection of embellishments you must pick from on the spot? We acknowledge that choosing the ideal embellishments for a lehenga can be a difficult task without doing the research. Options range from different types of embroidery to sequins and latkans of all kinds.

Elegant Lehengas with Traditional Embroidery

Embroidery or thread work is a traditional way to embellish a lehenga and adds an old-world elegance to the ensemble. You can choose between heavy embroidery all over the skirt and blouse or more subtle embroidery just at the borders, which will be less expensive. You will also have to decide whether to go with machine or hand embroidered lehengas depending on your time and budget.

Machine embroidery is more uniform, affordable, and faster, whereas hand embroidery adds a rustic finish to the lehenga but is more expensive and time consuming. Zari, Zardozi, Sequin work, Stone Work, and Chikankari are some popular forms of traditional embroidery. For heavier lehengas, you can choose from these or combine multiple types of embroidery.

Mirror Work

Shisha, or mirror work embroidery, consists of attaching small mirrors to a casing. To set these mirrors and enhance the appeal of the outfit, special cross-stitch embroidery is used. Mirrors in the shapes of circles, squares, triangles, hexagons, and polygons are used to create a variety of patterns. This design is most common in Rajasthani and Gujarati bridal lehengas.

Embroidery Calligraphy with a personal touch

Calligraphy is an excellent way to personalize a lehenga and make its design more meaningful to the wearer and the occasion. If you are a bride-to-be, you can have your name, initials, wedding date, or even your wedding hashtag embroidered on your lehenga.

This will make your wedding lehenga even more special and memorable. Consult your designer for the best placement of the calligraphy embroidery on the lehenga.

Decorate with prints, appliques, and borders

Printed lehengas are light and add a modern touch to an ethnic ensemble. For special occasion lehengas, you can choose signature prints and customize the print with the help of your designer. Floral prints are ideal for a spring wedding, whereas paisley prints are ideal for a regal winter wedding.

Intricate Applique Work

Applique work is the application of patches of embroidered or embellished fabrics on top of existing fabric to create a stunning 3D effect. Patches of various shapes, sizes, and colours can be used to create a variety of designs, color combinations, or patterns on the lehenga.

Conclusion

An embroidered lehenga can be easily paired with any type of dupatta or hairstyle. It could be a bun, straight open hair, or curly hair. A lehenga choli is a timeless piece of clothing. On their big wedding day, lehengas are the only dresses that make every bride look beautiful and gorgeous.
