Double dupatta v/s single dupatta for your bridal lehenga is a choice that haunts every bride! With both the styles having their distinctive bespoke allure, it is undeniably a tough task to choose between the two. While single dupatta looks modish and contemporary, double dupattas lend an exquisite traditional charm for brides.
However, now that you have finally decided to go with the double dupatta style, we are here to guide your way to the bridal glory. Yes, to ensure that you make one fashion-forward bride and also stay comfortable all the while, here is all the information you'll need to slay in double dupattas like a pro! Right from how to drape and color-style your dupattas to how to choose the best ones for yourself, this blog has it all.
The lighter dupatta should be set on your head as a veil because that’s the weight you would be carrying on your head for prolonged hours throughout your wedding. If you have a reception following, it is advised to remove the head dupatta to feel light and be able to enjoy the reception ceremony.
Pick the dupatta for your head in lightweight fabrics like net, chiffon, etc to ensure comfort.
You must also remember that the dupatta on your head is nearest to your face, so picking an appropriate color of that dupatta would bring out the best of your makeup and jewellery.
If you are a winter bride, choose an embellished velvet dupatta or a breathtaking pashmina stole for draping. It is one of the legit hacks to stay warm at your winter wedding. BTW, bridal fashion maestro Sabyasachi also approves of velvets and pashminas as bridal dupattas! However, the second dupatta (veil) can be of any other material.
If your wedding lehenga is relatively simpler, make sure one of the dupattas is heavy enough to instantly amp up your bridal look.
Taking a bandhani dupatta as one of the drapes is much in vogue and will give you that hatke bridal look.
Set both the dupattas firmly so that they stay in place; moving around or dancing should not be able to displace the dupattas.
With the decision of carrying double dupattas with your bridal lehenga also comes along the crucial task of deciding upon the color combination of dupattas. But opting for double dupattas is one of the best ways to add a pop of colour to your monotoned lehenga. You can either include a contrasting dupatta to your monotoned lehenga or break the monotony by choosing a lighter hue of the same colour palette.
