Pair with a long kurta

Convert Lehenga dupatta 

Since the bridal Lehenga is a three-piece outfit. You can decide to use the dupatta alone since most bridal dupattas in most cases are heavily embellished. Getting a heavy Kurti from this one-piece is possible. Plus, if you have to wear your bridal Lehenga you can match it with another contrasting dupatta if you wish to. Hence break your Lehenga set and enjoy using your dupatta as a kurta or short Kurti. That you can also wear at other traditional parties and you will look like the ethnic fashion diva with this trendy look.

Tailor it into an Anarkali 

The Lehenga choli look can be tailored into an Anarkali suit too. This way of transforming your bridal Lehenga is a unique one that is attractive as well.

Adorn to this in various traditional ceremonies and apply makeup that pops and hold your hair in a sleek bun to complete your look.

Pair your choli with plain Lehenga

A bridal Lehenga is known to have an extravagant and grandiose look. The choli, in most instances, is heavily embroidered and is shimmering. Just as the Lehenga, hence this weight is why most women avoid wearing it often or not at all. However, to reutilize it you can pair your bridal choli with a plain Lehenga for a fresh look. This will give you an elegant ensemble that you can rock to a party or a friend’s wedding. Also, you can upgrade the look of your plain Lehenga by adding some embroidery work around the hem that matches the choli.

Choose different styles of draping

If you love repeating your bridal Lehenga ensemble. Try breaking the monotony of your Lehenga look by choosing different styles of the dupatta. This will change the way you style it and give you options on how to wear it. For instance, tucking your dupatta with a metallic belt to your Lehenga choli is one way. This look gives you a carefree style to enjoy a Sangeet party. Alternatively, if you want to display the rich work on your dupatta a front wrap drape is another option you can go for. Achieve this and more gorgeous draping techniques and reutilize your wedding Lehenga again.

Pair Lehenga with sleeveless choli

The fashion of sleeveless choli is another way to make a statement and reutilize your bridal Lehenga choli. Remove the sleeves from your choli and flaunt your beautiful toned arms. Plus, you will get a fresh look for your wedding Lehenga. Try this style for summer parties and a cousin's wedding. As it is a sensual look and enjoy this delightful idea on how to reuse your bridal Lehenga. This sleeveless choli can also be a different choli from your bridal ensemble one that is of a plain color. That you can also wear on a different occasion as well.

Pair with a long jacket

Another way to get a wow factor to your bridal Lehenga is by teaming it up with a long jacket. Choose one that is embellished with Zardosi work to give you a modish ensemble. On the other hand, you can opt to choose a sheer net jacket to blend with your embroidered Lehenga. This is a charming way to show off your bridal Lehenga choli but in a different way. Ensure the colour shade of your jacket is contrasting to the Lehenga for that vibrant effect. This look is similar to that of a long kurta with Lehenga except the pairing style is different.

Wear the ensemble separately 

The bridal Lehenga can give you three different outfits by wearing the three pieces separately with other outfits. This groovy idea is the most popular and most women do it unknowingly. As an example, adorn to monotone suits and pair it with your heavily embellished dupatta. Then for the bridal choli pair with a saree or designer dhoti pants and have an elegant different look. Lastly, get a corset blouse and team it with the bridal Lehenga for a modern look to your persona.
