Heavy-Embroidered Ethnic Outfits
Indian ethnic outfits are glamorous and they have a charm of their own. But adding too many heavy outfits on your trousseau may not be a very smart choice. Why so?

Also, add a nice pair juttis to your trousseau because they are comfortable and supremely versatile.
Comfortable Ethnic Dresses
Brides can invest smartly in comfortable ethnic dresses, printed or lightly embroidered/embellished. These are usually very versatile, and can be worn both an ethnic outfit with leggings/cigarette pants, dupatta and silver jhumkas.

Light lehengas also allow you to experiment a lot with accessories, makeup and hair. You can either keep them simple or go for heavier, statement pieces.
