BY Sakshi | 05 Oct, 2018 | 74831 views | 3 min read

Now that's a conundrum so many brides face- to carry or not to carry a double dupatta! While a lot of us may know exactly what we want, sometimes you just can't figure out! So here are some sure fire ways to know that you need that second dupatta- so let s help you realise whether you want it or not!

Your dupatta is too heavy: Do the dupatta weight test!

Fold your dupatta in a square and put it on your head- that's the weight you will carry on your head for a long long time on your wedding day. If its too heavy, then you need a separate dupatta! Get a lighter one made!

Your first dupatta is less than 2.5-3 meters

This means that it will not go around- over your head, come in the front and cover your tummy! You need another one to do the whole thing!

If your bridal lehenga is pretty but simple, which is usually the case for pastel lehengas, then a double dupatta is a great way to make the lehenga appear heavier and more 'bridal'!

Or you need to make your heavy lehenga appear lighter!

If you're lehenga is super heavy- with a lot of embellishment, and especially velvet lehengas, then a lighter double dupatta which is light in weight and in colour can really ease your bridal look out!

This one is great for Sikh brides or for brides who do not want to show their tummy. Drape the double dupatta such that it covers your problem areas.
