A good Indian group dance is incomplete without well-co-ordinated, colorful and traditional Indian outfits. Indian dance costumes or American Indian dance costumes or something referred as Indian fusion dance costumes, like ethnic Indian fashion, represent our culture.

To understand better how costumes impact the outcome of a performance, let us look at some that rocked the stage.

Dancing and celebrating go hand in hand for Indians. Our country bears a legacy of larger-than-life life celebration when it comes to occasions or festivals. We also come from a land of rich culture and every Indian province has a dance form of its own! Dancing makes every occasion, every festival more vibrant, energetic and enjoyable!

From dancing for fun during wedding-related functions like sangeet, baraat, haldi, mehendi etc to putting up well-rehearfsed performances to celebrate festivals like Diwali, Durga Puja, Hindu New Year etc – Indian dance always warms up the spirits.

Fabrics to Consider While Choosing Dance Costumes

Indian dance costumes with always have some amount of embellishments. On stage, it is all about the glitz and the glamour. So choosing a heavy fabric would not be a good idea as it would be difficult to dance with the weight of the fabric plus the weight of the embellishment.

At the same time, the fabric can’t be dull or else it will look bad on stage. So the best options in fabrics for Indian dance costumes, fusion Indian dance costumes, American Indian dance costumes etc are fine silks, light brocades, satin, brightly colored chiffons and starched cottons.

As for classical Indian dance costumes, the rules come from a different book altogether. South Indian silks with heavy borders for Bharat Natyam, Ikkat weaves in silk and cotton for Odissi, hand woven cotton more Manipuri, real Benarasi brocades for Kathak – these are the traditional weaves and fabrics that are used for classical Indian dance costumes.

Fabrics to Avoid in Dance Costumes

As mentioned earlier, heavy fabrics are a strict ‘no no’ for Indian dance costumes.

For example, velvet would be a really poor choice as it is heavy and added embellishments will make it even heavier.

Also synthetic brocades would be another bad choice. Not only are they heavy, they tends to make the wearer sweat more!

Fabrics that have a tendency to poke the skin because of a rough weave would be a bad choice. Crepe or wool are examples.

Sometimes the zari-woven motifs in Chanderi or Benarasi fabrics or other types of brocades have the tendency to poke or irritate the skin, making the wearer highly uncomfortable.

These are fabrics that need to be avoided. Also, it is a good idea to keep away from fabrics that might look dull on stage like some kind of cottons, raw silk etc.

Accessories to Go with Indian Dance Costumes

There is no hard and fast rule regarding this except in case of classical dance forms! Some types of jewellery like kamarbandh, bajubandh, nose rings, headgear of a specific type etc need to be worn with traditional dance forms like Bharat Naytam, Odissi, Kathakali, Kuchipudi, Manipuri etc.

Again is certain types of Indian classical dance forms like Kathakali or Chhau, the dancer needs to wear an ornate mask! These accessories are innate part of the culture and tradition associated with the dance and the region it originates from.

But when it comes to fusion, creative, semi-classical or Bollywood dance, there is no rule! You might want a specific type of jewellery that goes well with the outfit.

You may also decide the accessories based on the theme of the dance. For example, a mythology-inspired dance performance should have the appropriate accessories.

Often, dancers wear a band around their waist. This may be a piece of cloth tied at one end or an ornate belt. This not only looks good but also keeps the outfit in place during the performance.

Some Points to Consider Before You Choose a Velvet Lehenga

Velvet is a heavy fabric and therefore suitable for cold weather. While in cold season, a velvet lehenga would make the bride comfortable, in tropical or hot weather it does just the opposite!

Velvet has a very rich and classy look. Dark hues like red, maroon, wine, navy etc complement the texture and the mood of the fabric.

As velvet is pretty heavy on its own, be careful while choosing the kind of embellishment you want with it. If you are generally uncomfortable in heavy clothes and still want a velvet lehenga, make sure that you don’t go for heavy embellishments!

Velvet is a mark of class and looks very elegant if styled in the right way. GetEthnic boasts a huge collection of bridal velvet lehengas that are gorgeous, regal and match up to the grandeur of the big fat Indian weddings.

Lehenga Dupatta A to Z – All about Types and Draping Styles

When we think of lehenga, what first comes to mind is the lehenga skirt – how flared it’s going to be, how heavily embellished the skirt should be, what shape it should be in etc etc! Some of us even get concerned about the choli – its shape, the detailing at the back, sleeve length, type of embellishment etc. But a bridal lehenga comprises of a third important component too which is your lehenga dupatta!

Bridal Dupatta

It won’t be exaggeration if one says that most brides are not concerned about the dupatta. But in reality the dupatta plays a crucial role. First, it plays a key role in the silhouette of the whole bridal look. The drape of the dupatta goes a long way in complementing the figure of the bride. If draped in the wrong way, the dupatta might make one look broader or leaner, in an uncomplimentary kind of way!

Lehenga Dupatta Draping Styles

1. Over The Head

Bridal Dupatta Draping Style@bridal_lehenga_ideas

This is the most common way of draping a bridal dupatta with a lehenga. The dupatta is neatly laid on the head of the bride, pinned discreetly to the hairstyle to keep it in place and the rest of the dupatta is allowed a free fall on both sides!

2. Like Gujarati Saree Pallu

Bridal Dupatta Draping Style@smsy_dress

Just like the Gujarati style saree pallu is draped, the dupatta is pleated and then placed on the shoulder of the bride. The part of the dupatta in front is then spread and pinned like a fan to the skirt. Checkout more of Gujarati wedding.

3. Cross Body

Bridal Dupatta Draping Style@shaadiwish  | Get Custom Made Lehenga

This type of bridal dupatta draping is also pretty common! The dupatta is pleated and draped diagonally across the body, quite like a normal saree pallu. This style is also known as half Saree or manga Voni.

4. One Side Pinning

Bridal Dupatta Draping Style@pragyaachhajer

In this draping style, a corner of the dupatta is taken and pinned with the skirt on one side of the body, near the waist. Then the rest of the dupatta is taken and draped on the other side of the body and held on to in a casual way.

5. Like a Shawl

@wedabout

If you would like to keep the drape simple and effortless, simply wrap it around yourself like a shawl. This style would be great when you want to display the workmanship on the dupatta. This type of lehenga dupatta goes perfectly in a Punjabi Wedding.

6. Pleated on One side

@venuelook

Another hassle-free draping style is to pleat the dupatta and pin it to the choli, on one side of the body. This style works well when you want to highlight the lehenga skirt and choli and keep the dupatta out of the way. This works in case of contrast dupattas too. This is also a great way to wear your dupatta on a mehendi and sangeet function, when you want to keep it neat and out of the way.

7. Like a veil

@loving_too_much

If you are keen on flaunting a unique dupatta draping style, try this one! In this style you wear the dupatta in such a way, over your head, that it covers part of your face. This works well with semi-sheer, transparent and see-through dupattas like those in fabrics like net, chiffon or organza. Also if you are going to flaunt a semi-sheer dupatta with an ornate or frilly border, this draping style is a clever way to showcase the border. Checkout more of red lehengas.

8. Let it Trail

@wishnwed

A bit of a variation in the ‘over the head’ draping style is letting the dupatta trail behind you just like the veils that go with Christian wedding gowns. This style looks very graceful and photographs well too!

9. Like a Suit Dupatta

@wittyvows

The most common way to style a suit dupatta is by draping it in front, over both shoulders. You can use the same styling technique in case of lehengas too.

10. The Double Dupatta Style

This is the trendiest dupatta draping style in the wedding fashion scene these days. It involves the use of two dupattas. One dupatta that matches the color and style of the lehenga is draped over the head of the bride in a traditional way. The other dupatta comes in a completely contrasting shade and design. For example, if the bride flaunts a sequin embroidered lehenga in a light pastel green shade, the other dupatta might be a bandhej one or a phulkari one in bright purple or yellow!

Bridal Dupatta Draping Style@wedabout

This second dupatta is draped either cross-body, or pinned on one side or even sometimes draped like a Gujarati saree pallu. The double dupatta draping style allows you and the designer to play around with style and be at your creative best.

Various types of Lehenga Dupattas

1. Net Dupatta

Bridal Dupatta

@urbanstree

What it is!
Net is a kind of see-through thin material! It is created by knotting and looping yarns resulting in open spaces between the yarns. This gives the fabric a see-through look. The fabric is tough and has the ability to support heavy embroidery or sequin and stone work.

What will it go with?
Net dupattas go with heavy lehengas where the focus needs to be on the embellishments on the skirt and choli. As net material is almost transparent, even draping the dupatta around the body will allow the showcasing of the intricacies of the work on the lehenga skirt and choli.

2. Chanderi Dupatta

Bridal Dupatta@thewardrobestories

What is it!
Chanderi is a luxurious drape with a sheer texture and is extremely light-weight. It is primarily produced in a small town of Madhya Pradesh of the same name. Chanderi weaves use silk yarns and zari. They come in bright shades as well as pastel hues with gold zari motifs. Chanderi fabric has an attractive translucency that looks great with the bridal attire.

What will it go with?
The use of gold zari in chanderi and luxuriousness of the silk make it perfect for any heavy lehenga. If you are wanting to avoid sequin, stone, crystal embellishments, because they are heavy, you can go for the woven zari embellishment look! In that case, chanderi dupattas could work wonders!

3. Brocade Dupatta

Bridal Dupatta@maasha.by.milankaul

What it is!
Brocade implies to any fabric which forms woven, slightly raised motifs usually using gold or silver yarns. Brocade is generally heavy owing to the use of zari threads and never fails in creating a super-glam look.

What will it go with?
Brocade gives out an old-world, vintage vibe! Moreover, on its own, the fabric looks very gorgeous! So if you are going for a light lehenga, low on embellishments, using a heavy brocade dupatta will add the bling factor to your look.

4. Banarasi Dupatta

Bridal Dupatta@eventilaindia

What it is!
Banarasi fabric has a charm of its own and a different place altogether in the Indian bridal scenario, though technically it falls under the brocade category! Benarasi silk hails from the city of Banaras in Uttar Pradesh. The top quality silk and the best gold and silver zari brocade fabric is a class in itself. Banarasi is a cult favorite when it comes to wedding fashion!

What will it go with?
While Bengali brides wear Banarasi sarees on their wedding, you can easily re-create that look in a lehenga! In this case, the Banarasi dupatta will be the star of the show. The same fabric can be used to border the lehenga skirt! A Benarasi lehenga skirt may also be used if the bride is looking for a larger-than-life look!

5. Organza Dupatta

Bridal Dupatta@rohit_chikan_palace

What it is!
Organza is a thin, sheer fabric made with silk yarns! Pure silk organza fabric is comfortable and light weight. Nowadays even synthetic fibres like polyester is being used to create organza fabric. These are tough and can withhold heavy embroidery!

What will it go with?
Organza dupattas should be paired with lehenga skirts and cholis that are high on the embellishment scale. The sheerness of the dupatta adds grace and does not hide the elaborate details on the rest of the attire.

6. Chiffon Dupatta

@urbanstree

What it is!
Chiffon is a very light, transparent, soft fabric which may be made with silk yarns as well as nylon yarns. Chiffon sarees are a mark of class and royalty and chiffon dupattas are extensively used with garments that are heavy on the embellishment scale.

What will it go with?
Owing to the softness of the fabric, chiffon dupattas are usually unable to carry the weight of heavy embellishments. At the most, tiny zari bootis or a border can be added! This is why they go really well with lehengas that are heavy on embellishment or embroidery! Chiffon dupattas are a must with chikankari lehengas or lehengas with aari or zardozi work.

7. Velvet Dupatta

Velvet Bridal Dupatta@rajkumari.dulap

What it is!
Velvet has been used in wedding fashion in India over centuries! It is a tufted and woven fabric where the cut threads are arranged evenly to give a very soft, thick and dense feel.

What will it go with?
If you are sporting a lehenga with a velvet hemline or a velvet choli, use a dupatta in the same velvet! You can also combine a net or chiffon dupatta with velvet applique work or velvet border for the same effect.

8. Embroidered Dupatta

@fusionphulkari

What is it!
In India, you will be spoilt for options when it comes to embroidery! Almost every state in India boasts a typical type of embroidery that is exotic and exquisite! From zari embroidery to chikankari, from kantha to aari, from zardozi to phulkari – the list is endless! Dupattas always look exceptionally beautiful when embroidered motifs in thread or zari is used to adorn them. Such dupattas becomes heirlooms.

What will it go with?
This solely depends on the type of embroidery you have chosen! While with a benarasi brocade skirt, a zari embroidered or zardozi embroidered dupatta would look good, with pastel shade lehengas, chikankari dupattas would look great! If you are wearing something bright for a morning wedding, try combining a phulkari dupatta with the same.

9. Bandhej Dupatta

@desiclassybrides

What it is!
This very famous art hailing from Gujarat and Rajasthan deals with plucking cloth, tying then up and dyeing the fabric in bright colors. Bandhej or bandhani is often combined with embroidery and mirror work! This gives out an “ethnic boho” vibe.

What will it go with?
An emerging trend in the ethnic bridal wear scenario is the double dupatta style in which two different types of dupattas are draped to create the bridal look. Designers have come up with a new trend by combining a lehenga in a neutral shade or a light pastel shade with a brightly colored bandhej dupatta draped cross body!

10. Dupatta with Heavy Border

@anju_lamba13

What it is!
Sometimes, carrying a very heavy dupatta with lots of embellishments becomes an issue! Also, it is always not a good idea to keep the dupatta simple and out of the way! The best option in that case is going for an otherwise un-embellished dupatta with an ornate and heavy border! You may add a velvet border or a sequin embroidered one. You may also add frills to your dupatta border or even latkans!

What will it go with?
This one is a timeless trend! This type of dupatta will go with anything! A heavy border can amp up the look of a plain lehenga and even complement the look of a heavy lehenga! When it doubt, go for a plain dupatta with an embellished, heavy border.

Conclusion – Lehenga Dupatta Styles

Bridal Dupatta

A beautifully embellished dupatta makes the work easier! With a heavy dupatta, you can get away with a not-so-extraordinary lehenga skirt and choli. The dupatta can easily become the highlight of the look.

Also, when it comes to dupattas, there are a myriad choices that are available to Indian brides! A dupatta is a piece of garment that is also used with other types of attires like a salwar-suit, a sharara, a lehenga dress, a lacha etc. So every Indian state has its share to offer in terms of textile and craftsmanship.

Some dupatta draping styles might make you appear leaner and some may make your figure look more symmetrical. This decision should be taken by an expert designer and the type of dupatta you flaunt should also be customized for you. Dupatta is a powerful tool in the bridal wear ensemble and the key to the best style and draping depends solely on customization.
