Wearing Them With Bridal Lehenga

We suggest you wear flats with your lehenga sets. Usually, can-can and embroidery work makes your bridal lehengas bulky and heavy and it becomes really hard to walk with that. So if you ditch the heels and wear flats, it will become easy for you to walk. With your traditional lehengas, you pair up juttis or kolhapuri chappals.

Comfort Over Anything

Let's just face it that not all can dance in high heels. And Indian wedding without dance is incomplete, right? So if you are a bride who wants to dance her heart out then make sure to go for the flats. And, if you're a hatke bride you who loves to wear sneakers & juttis, then wearing flats in your wedding celebrations is a bliss cos we don't want you to trip over your lehenga while wearing a pencil heel!

The Length Of The Outfit

If the length of your skirt or lehenga is short, avoid wearing heels. Flats will make a great choice to match with your outfit. You don't need any support to handle your outfit and that's why you can ditch your heels and go for flats. Experiment with mules or other types of flats and bookmark how this bride wore flats on her carnival-themed brunch!

You will lose the count if you start finding the types of heels that exist! Every heel need not be uncomfortable and painful. And when to wear heels, can be a big mystery to solve. If you are not okay with pencil heels, you can always choose wedges or block heels. With the right support of heels, the chances of falling are way too less and comfortable at the same time. 

With Sarees

You must be thinking that wearing a saree is already so hectic, how will we manage heels with the saree. Well, heels give the support to your saree pleats. It gives a height to saree that decreases the chances of tripping. So, next time when you're thinking to wear a saree don't forget to wear heels with it.

Stylish & Modern

If you are one of those brides who just love heels, we suggest you wear heels on occasion when you have to sit for long hours. For example, your wedding day can be the right occasion to wear heels.  There will be less walking and dancing as you will be busy in the wedding ceremonies and rituals. 

The Length Of The Outfit

As we mentioned earlier, the length of the outfit plays an important role in deciding what you should wear. If the length of your skirt is long, it will wise to wear heels because we don't want you to spoil your outfit on the ground. The chances of you falling are much higher if you wear flats with your long lehengas.
