Earrings are a must-have accessory that can instantly transform your bridal look. The right pair of earrings can frame your face beautifully. Whether you prefer delicate studs, intricate jhumkas, or glamorous chandelier earrings, they can all add sparkle to your ensemble. Choose earrings that complement your blouse's neckline and your lehenga's overall style.
If you are a ’90s kid, you will agree that all the wedding songs had bangles in the lyrics. But do you know why? Bangles are an integral part of Indian tradition and culture. More than that, it’s a must-have wedding embellishment. They represent prosperity and are believed to bestow luck.

At WNW, the veil dupattas can be embellished with embroidery, sequins, or lace as the bride visualizes, to match the details of her dreamy lehenga.
Perfect Footwear For The Perfect Lehenga
A bride should be adorned on her special day from head to toe. So, why leave the footwear out of consideration? For a bridal appearance, the choice of shoes is crucial since it adds a unique flair and raises the bar on elegance for bridal wear, assuring the bride's comfort throughout the day. From the red carpet entry to showing the wedding choreography on stage, the bride’s steps should be unhindered.
1. Jutti/Kolhapuri Chappal
This is for the bride who prioritizes her comfort over anything else. These juttis or Kolahpuri chappals are handcrafted, traditional shoes that come in a range of colours and patterns. You may choose a pair that complements the design of your lehenga, including elaborately embroidered juttis and decorated Kolhapuri chappals.
If you love the extra height and elegance that heels offer, choose a pair that combines both style and comfort. Platform heels, block heels, or wedges are good options since they offer more stability and support. Select heels that go well with your lehenga by trying to find ones that have elaborate patterns, beads, or embroidery. As WNW tip, we will suggest wedges would be your best choice to bring stability (say no to pencil heels!)
