One of the most frequently asked questions by brides since the beginning of time has been –
“What should I wear on my Mehendi?”
You know you’re wearing a lehenga on your wedding (or a sari, depending on your heritage) and you will either opt for a gown or lehenga for your Sangeet (comfortable & practical). The Mehendi, though, is a whole different ball game. Salwar kurta or Anarkali? Corset with ethnic skirt? Midi skirt, or a maxi? Sleeveless or with sleeves? Dupatta, or no dupatta?
As if these weren’t enough questions, you have more – can’t I wear something more modern? I’m already going traditional on my Sangeet and Wedding. I want to look different, I want to be in something fresh, and young. Not the same old, same old. Oh, and I want it to be reasonable. Somewhere in the 15-25k range. And since I’ve already spent so much time visiting over 50 shops for my other 2 outfits, I just want to place an order online. From a trust-worthy store, of course.

If you’re looking for light lehengas that are also light on the pocket, I have an idea for you. I’m sure I’m not the first person in the world to have had this inspired thought, but last weekend I saw this picture of a maxi skirt & crop top –
and thought to myself, “This is so pretty, can’t it double up as a lehenga?”
Waittaminute *quickly scrolls down to check price*
Yes, it can!
The crop top and skirt were priced at ₹26,000 – the average these days to buy a light lehenga by an even slightly known designer. Was I onto something?
Were there other maxi skirts out there that could double up as light lehengas?
