16 Creative ways to Reuse and Revamp your Wedding Lehenga.

Bridal lehengas are expensive and it makes no sense to wear them only once. Wedding lehengas cannot be worn again because they are too heavy to be worn  as weddings guest outfit and then again almost everyone has already seen you in it.  But with some styling tweaks you can actually reuse you wedding lehenga multiple times instead of keeping it packed ina suitcase never to be worn again. 

Here in this post I present to you some very creative ways to reuse your wedding lehenga  after your wedding.

16 Creative ways to Reuse and Revamp your Wedding Lehenga

#1 Pair your bridal lehenga with a different lighter dupatta

The bridal lehenga most of the times comes with a very heavy dupatta and using a different light weight or plain net dupatta can help play down the granduer of  your wedding outfit. You can go for a plain net dupatta in same colour with simple lace stiched on all four sides or  get a bit more creative and try a dupatta in a colour contrasting your lehenga.

#2  Use the blouse of your bridal outfit like a saree blouse

If your wedding lehenga has a heavy blouse then pair it with a plain saree . Sheer sarees work best for this kind of experiment as it gives ample scope for the heavy work on your bridal blouse to be showcased. 

#3 Play with different style top options like a long kurta

Ditch the blouse which came with your lehenga and explore other options like a long kurta or cape style simple blouse in contrasting colour of your lehenga. These latest lehenga blouse design options also allow you to skip dupatta making your wedding lehenga wearable for smaller functions. 

#4 Wear your bridal lehenga with a shirt 

Pairing a heavily embellished lehenga with a shirt is the latest trend. It all started off with Anushka sharma in ADHM where she  rocked a lehenga with white shirt and layered neck pieces. Just pair an existing white or black shirt from your wardrobe with a lehenga and skip the dupatta to the next wedding you attend. 

#5 Wear your wedding blouse and dupatta with plain lehenga

The lehenga is the most heaviest part of your wedding outfit and to make it more wearable just skip the lehenga and pair your wedding blouse and dupatta with a plain lehenga. You can use an existing silk or net lehenga from your wardrobe or get one tailored in modern cut or design.

#6 Add a sheer cape to your lehenga set 

Sheer capes are totally in and they can completely change the look of an outfit. Skip the dupatta and add a sheer net cape over your wedding lehenga for a trendy indo western outfit option.

#7 Use your dupatta with a different light lehenga or suit

Dupatta of your lehenga is something you can reuse many times. Get a plain floor length anarkali stitched in contrasting colour and wear with your wedding dupatta. 

#8 Experiment with your dupatta drape

Changing up the dupatta drape can also make for a refreshing change with your wedding lehenga. Most brides pin their wedding dupatta or use it to cover the head but after your wedding you can go for a more relaxed and a flowy dupatta drape.

# 9 Get an anarkali made out your wedding lehenga

If the idea of an expensive lehenga sitting idle in your home doesnt sit well with you then transform  it into an anarkali. you will need a good tailor to bring a stylish anarkali to life from your wedding lehenga which you will wear a lot more times than the lehenga.

Long jackets over ethnic wear are hot in trend these days. You an add a floor length jacket to your wedding lehenga and rewear it to a wedding. For winter weddings go for silk jackets or opt for a sheer net jacket for a summer wedding.

#14 Remove can can and use as is

Most bridal lehengas come with a layer of can can which adds volume to the outfit but if you want to reuse your wedding lehenga after your wedding you get the can can removed from underneath of your lehenga and wear it. Removing the can can layer makes the lehenga more wearable and less bridal. When wearing your lehenga as is make sure to change up the styling a bit.
