Spent a bomb on that bridal lehenga and don't want to give up on it so soon? Trust me, we understand what brides go through post their nuptials. Your wedding is over and now you have no clue what to do with that bridal outfit that's been lying in your wardrobe ever since! It's too precious to get rid off, too heavy to wear elsewhere, and most importantly everyone has already seen you in it! However, it doesn't need to be this hard, beautiful brides. Here are 5 designer-approved style hacks to give your wedding attire an instant upgrade! You can now wear it for your brother's cocktail party or your besties mehendi function (and trust me no one will ever know.)

    "Over the last few years, the number of brides who have opted for outfits that can be re-purposed post the wedding have increased exponentially. Each of our ensembles are carefully hand-embroidered and intricately crafted, along with being extremely versatile too. However, as designers, not only do we absolutely adore the final product, but we also carefully craft each element, making sure that it shines independently."

    "One can always re-purpose their bridal lehenga for a close relative's wedding. Just opt for lighter jewellery and leave your hair down for a more fluid and understated look. While pastels work perfectly for day functions, deeper, darker colour palettes can be worn for evening events. These ensembles may be re-purposed as a whole, or in parts; be it solely the skirt, the dupatta or the blouse."

    "Our millennial brides who love to experiment with silhouettes can always re-style their wedding lehenga by pairing the skirt with a shirt blouse. It lends a chic silhouette, offering a modern and contemporary feel to the entire look."

    "Let's play mix and match! Mixing and matching contrasting colour palettes is another great way to give your wedding outfit a glamorous upgrade. For instance, fuschias and pinks can be paired with emerald green or even purple!"

    "For the brides who opted for a red bridal ensemble, you can always pair your blouse and dupatta with a contrasting skirt, for example, a blue hand-embroidered lehenga."

    "Summer Bridal Edit"

    "Modifying and revamping your dupatta and blouse by creating an alternate look is always an option. Opting for a blouse with exaggerated cape sleeves is the perfect way to add a flowy, contemporary vibe to your otherwise traditional lehenga."

    "Lastly, if the bride doesn't wish to re-wear her bridal lehenga at all, she can always pair the blouse with plain sharara pants."
