This is a very easy to adopt hack for a trendy bridal outfit. Instead of anything else, pick a colour or colours that are trending, which will be half the battle won. Mango is super in for brides these days, and so are shades of blue, the Pantone colour for 2020.
Or give multicoloured a shot!

Multicoloured lehengas look happy and festive- you could try Bandhini or Patola ones- let the fabric do the talking. Panelled lehengas are super in these days, as are multicoloured ones, with the lehenga, blouse and dupatta all of separate shades- so try that out too!
Wear jewellery that contrasts your outfit

How gorgeous does that look? Contrasting jewellery can make your outfit pop more and the colours to show up beautifully.
Let the dupatta do the talking!

This one is perfect- since the dupatta is going to be visible in almost all your shots, get one which is eye catching and unique. You could get one with a scalloped border, or a Benarasi one looks pretty amazing too.
Try a new dupatta drape style

This one is pretty simple, and there's loads of ways to do it! Instead of sticking to a simple drape, do something offbeat, which will make your bridal look stand out. Here are some drape amazing ideas for the mehndi!
Get something trendy made instead of a dupatta

Ditch the dupatta and get a cape, jacket or something even more interesting made or style one with your lehenga. Here are all the ideas you'd need for it.
Add a waist belt
This is also a simple hack which cinches the waist and gives the entire look a lot more structure. Add a thin belt or a zardozdi or fabric one to hold the dupatta and bring the whole look together. You can even wear a floral one if you want.
Try a unique new silhouette

This doesn't necessarily have to mean something complicated. Pick a silhouette which is trendy, and can be easily made by your tailor. There's so much inspiration to take! Here are some ideas to consider!
Make the blouse or the back stand out
This one is pretty simple, since the blouse will be showing in almost all your photos too. Making the back trendy is another cool idea. Find all the ones we recently loved here.
