5. Outline it with gorgeous laces and borders

While sourcing the raw materials for your tailor-made bridal lehenga, don't forget to invest in a few mirror-embellished, gotta patti work & other fancy laces and borders. You can beautifully use them to outline the hem of your bridal lehenga, the sleeves of your blouse or even your dupatta for that matter. It is indeed one stylish way to customize your lehenga.

6. Get your love story etched on it

What better way to customize your bridal lehenga than with your love tale or those cutesy love notes given by your partner to you? Sounds interesting, right? Well, you can very well do that! Just reach out the progressive couturier, Kresha Bajaj. She has created some mindblowing masterpieces with the brides' sweet love stories, some special messages, and other personal details.

While some got the neckline of their blouses adorned with furs and feathers, others opted to amp up their lehengas with tasseled embellishments on the shoulder and some ruffled dupattas.
