Contrasting dupatta is the new trend these days, and oh, it looks fab!

Any ethnic outfit is incomplete without a dupatta, and it is often said that dupatta enlivens the Indian look that a lehenga is supposed to give.

Brides these days do not have to stick to the same traditional ways to style the dupatta with their bridal outfit but pick and choose some of the best new-age dupattas which stand out.

Moreover, there is no end to Indian Weddings, and so you need to be ready with your best-styled outfits for a different look every time. Mixing and matching is one way to enhance your #weddingOOTD, and this is where the idea of contrast dupatta comes in!

So, if you want to know the best ideas for a contrast coloured dupatta to match your wedding lehenga, then we’ve got you covered! Here are some of the best combinations for a lehenga and dupatta for your wedding lehenga.

Most Trending Contrasting Dupattas for Bridal Lehengas

#1 Lighter shade Dupatta of the Lehenga colour

This trend can be seen everywhere! You can choose to consider pastel shade lehengas as it looks great, and in all cases, makes the lehenga colour pop. Try a pink lehenga with a rose gold dupatta or experiment with the shades of pink with your lehenga. You can also go for a red dupatta or keep it simple with white. We spotted so many brides wearing this combination and their lehengas were designed by none other than our favourite Designer Sabyasachi!

#2 Inspire the Dupatta with the Lehenga border

This style is basic but beautiful. I have been seeing this lehenga style for quite some time now, and I am in love with it. Can you guess the common thing running through all these lehengas? Yes, it’s the same dupatta with the same colour border of the lehenga. I love how the outfit is in sync. Don’t you?

#3 The Sabyasachi Contrastting Duppatas for Bridal Lehengas

Velvet looks fantastic with a lighter contrast dupatta. The fabric is so royal that it doesn’t need something as substantial to match with it. We love how Sabyasachi keeps the focus on the lehenga giving a contrast dupatta to the bride. This Sabyasachi bride is gracing the lehenga with the pink dupatta.

Quick Tip: If you can’t afford designer wear like Sabyasachi, you can easily head over to the first copies of similar-looking lehengas. We bet you can’t tell the difference. They are really good!

#4 The complete contrast bridal lehenga

There have been many trends over the years, which were total disasters, for instance, a tri-coloured lehenga choli. The shades were sometimes in a pink-yellow-orange combination or a red-blue-green. It was absolutely meant to go away!

However, there are much better options seen in the tri-colour contrast lehengas these days. They are not too loud, and the colours do complement each other. The best part about these lehengas is that they can be mix-matched and can be used many times with different outfits.

#5 Bride goes green 

Some stunning brides are spotted in green bridal outfits on their d- day! Therefore, adding a pink shade to your green lehenga is the best choice! Green and pink do contrast a lot, yet they also complement each other. A bride wearing this colour will look solely graceful. This green lehenga with a blush pink dupatta is one unique masterpiece created by Sabyasachi.

A lot of brides still choose to wear red lehengas on their wedding day. If you are one of those classic brides, you too can give a modern touch to your traditional by teaming up your lehenga with a contrasting dupatta.

#7 The Fine Contrast Dupatta for Bridal Lehenga

This is my favourite style out of all! See, how pretty does this bride look. When you see her first, you can’t tell it’s a contrast because the lehenga and the blouse have hints of the shade all over. So, my beautiful bride, if you are aspiring for a fairy look on your wedding day, then this is the best pick for you.
