Bridal Velvet Lehenga Choli Designs - for Indian Brides
Velvet is one of the most popular, and also one of the best fabrics used for making heavily embroidered bridal lehengas. The dense weave of this fabric facilitates adorning the garments with heavy metallic zardozi work, chunky stones and sequins- embellishments that form prime components of wedding attire. For her wedding ceremony, a bride can wear a maroon or red velvet lehenga choli that is indulgent with flower, paisley and peacock forms. These days, for daytime and outdoor wedding ceremonies, modern brides have been switching over to velvet bridal lehengas in soft tones like beige, light peach and taupe. Heavily embroidered velvet lehengas for weddings and bridal wear are usually lined with a wide cancan layer to give them a better fall and scale up their magnificence.
Velvet Blouse Designs
Velvet choli designs for bridal wear should be relatively simple. The thickness of this fabric generally does not go well with dramatic cuts and details so it is better to stick to the regular choli with short to medium length sleeves. For a bolder look, you can opt for a short bustier-style blouse, while a corset velvet blouse can be customized to make a contemporary ensemble. Many celebrities have worn velvet blouses for their weddings. Sarees are also worn with these opulent blouses. Anushka Sharma wore a velvet bordered deep maroon saree with a contemporary velvet blouse for her pre wedding function.
