The Secret to Looking Like a B-town Bride Under Budget

Your dreams of looking like a Sabyasachi or a Manish Malhotra bride can come true under a budget. Even if you have the money, expensive wedding lehengas are statement pieces which cannot be repurposed for regular wear. 

Bride to be

Hence, go for budget lehengas and spruce them up to look like a magazine bride! If you agree, it’s time for your budget bridal lehenga transformation.

How to style your wedding lehenga?

To achieve a designer lehenga bridal look, you must focus on structure, pattern, colour, material, makeup and jewellery.

Follow these three major hacks for a designer bride look.

Focus on the complete lehenga look

Sabyasachi lehengas often have thick can–can skirt layering. If you want a royal look, you can locally source the material and ask your local tailor to stitch it at a much lower budget. Otherwise, you can opt for the Manish Malhotra lehenga design with a long dupatta veil. 

Beautiful Bride

A custom-made lehenga is an added advantage because you can have the correct dimensions in one go compared to a store-bought lehenga. Next, let your blouse do the talking. If you do not have a lehenga with exquisite handwork or stones, go for blouses with heavy embroidery or studs.

Bridal wear

You can take inspiration from Pinterest or Sabyasachi. You can pay your local tailor to stitch a blouse with a unique pattern, like a plunging neckline or a backless blouse. Pick a style that will accentuate your best features.

For instance, if you want the classic Sabyasachi lehenga look, go for a closed-back with a deep V-neck blouse.

You can play with colours if you wear pastels or light colours. You can go for the same hue or a darker shade of your lehenga. For instance, if you have opted for a Sabyasachi lehenga in light shades of baby pink or blue, go for pink or blue/silver smokey eyes with black liner.

You can buy  Femica products to create stunning eye looks. [wp-shopify-product id=”7743911362811″]

You can choose a dewy and glowy look with nude lipstick for shimmery looks like modern Manish Malhotra lehengas. You can buy the lipstick trio for your lips, blush and contouring.

When it comes to jewellery, go for Kundan stones or diamonds. These are a sound investment for a bride. [wp-shopify-product id=”7758031913211″]

Dark lehengas 

For dark lehengas, it’s always safe to go with soft smokey eyes (brown or a lighter shade of the lehenga). You can also go for Deepika Padukone’s smudged kohl eyes from her wedding. Do not go overboard by choosing multiple colours.

Further, dark lehengas are already catchy. Hence, it would help if you opted for a matte base for your makeup. You can buy the Dewy matte foundation from Femica India

There are other shades available in this range. [wp-shopify-product id=”7781663932667″]

This gives the perfect foundation base to get the desired matte bridal look with a dewy undertone. If you want Alia Bhatt’s no–makeup makeup look, go for neutral makeup with subtle hints of copper/bronze shimmer.

Contrast lehengas

For contrast lehengas, you can wear heavy or light eye makeup. If you don’t like attention on your face, go for neutral makeup with subtle hints of copper /bronze shimmer on your eyes with a nude lip colour. You can replicate the dream-like Alia Bhatt’s day wedding look.

Pro-tip: For matte lehengas, go for shimmery or glittery eyes with a bold red lip. You can buy  Femica’s vegan lipstick to achieve the perfect pout! [wp-shopify-product id=”7674905821435″]


Your jewellery can make or break your look – choose statement pieces such as chokers and heavy earrings to complement your lehenga. You can opt for gold or heavy Kundan sets and layer them with two lighter necklaces for a wholesome look. 

Bridal dresses

Don’t forget the smaller details like maangteekas, nose rings, and bangles. Additionally, you can wear a kamarband for a royal bridal look. It enhances the beauty of the lehenga. Many brides opt for this to make their waists look smaller.

For budget shopping, you can find rented or artificial jewellery online or contact shops involved in this business.

Wrapping Up

Wedding ideas like the perfect lehenga style, blouse and makeup will enhance your look to the next level. Once you have worn your lehenga and makeup, highlight your cheekbones and collarbones to look like the most glam girl in the room.

 For the final royal touch, put on a second dupatta over your head that contrasts your lehenga dupatta. This will amplify your bride’s dress tenfold. Let Femica India help you prepare for your big day – their products come in a wide range, so you can pick whichever tones and hues suit your makeup look the best.
