You can also add a bit of flair by playing with the same color combination in your lehenga jewellery.
Who doesn’t love a good pun here and there, but this bride made sure to make her wedding pun-ny. Contrast seems to be the new hype nowadays and we are loving the bright pink unconventional quote inscribed latkan is complementing the bride’s traditional lehenga and bangles, are you?
Flowers add the cheery and happy vibes to any occasion, and you can never go wrong with them! In addition to carrying an oomph factor in hand (literally!), this bride is flaunting her pastel pink lehenga with a touch of flowers and feathers attached from her bangles, paired with matching floral jewellery.

Above all, Velvet fabric has been admired as a royal fabric for generations. Not only the latkan goes smoothly with a simplistic Mehendi attire, but it can also be worn with your main outfit for the wedding owing to its luxurious feel.
Meanwhile, some of us might be bored of the usual tassels, pom-poms and lace. If so, go for some dazzling sequined lehenga latkans glittered with shiny charms and floral accessories for that bold and boho mehendi look. For example, this bride paired her bespoke star-shaped latkans in matching lime green and Fuschia pink hues of her lehenga choli.

Minimalists like it light and simple but that doesn’t mean you cannot play with colours, fabric and style. Therefore, we present a fusion bride with minimal accessories. This bride has accompanied her pastel blue Chikankari lehenga with a mirror embedded cloth latkan and statement blouse.
Latkans in a combination of pastel hues for this sweet photoshoot looks perfectly compatible with the bridegroom’s attire. In other words, we cannot help but swoon over this lehenga latkan design!
Some might consider mirrors to be overrated but we don’t. When paired with the right outfit, mirrors can bring that touch of glamour and vibrance. The bride is consistent with her theme of mirror and florals as seen in her vivid yellow lehenga, this would be the most obvious choice for a haldi rasam but not limited to it. In conclusion, mirrors work with almost every outfit, be it heavy or lightly worked.
Red and gold hues are the traditional colours of a North Indian wedding. Although people nowadays are trying new colours, one can never go wrong with old-school charm. They are quite a weight but then again, all Indian weddings are meant to be over the top and regal.
Another bright addition is this golden latkan with names and mirror embellishments, beads and various other assorted shapes. Isn’t the latkan adding glamour to this beautiful sunshine-yellow lehenga choli?
Don’t want your full name taking up all the space in your latkan? You can also try creating a creative logo out of your initials like this gold beaded couple’s logo latkan.
Or you can simply use an embroidered piece like this initial-only orchid coloured latkan.
If you want something light and simple for your latkan design, then try experimenting with different shapes and sizes. One can also add some fun elements like tassels, mirrors, pom-poms, cloth balls etc.
Dulhan Latkans comes in all shapes and sizes, from hearts and diamonds to rectangles, squares, teardrops and even hexagons!
In addition to personalizing your wedding with custom outfits, you can also create a memoir out of your latkans by getting your wedding date embroidered on them. Subsequently making this an heirloom or something to reminisce on your anniversaries. This trend is widely gaining attention since brides across India want to add personalized touch to their outfits besides writing their partner’s name on Mehendi.
There is no rule when it comes to how you want your latkans to be, patterned, mix-match or even something random. One can colour contrast in the latkan itself, for example, this with white and red Hindi lettering.
Or, you can create a pattern out of different shapes like a rectangle or square with circles.
As opposed to contrast, some may want to match. Therefore, if you want your lehenga to be the sole centre of attention and don’t want any extravagant detail to catch all the eyes, you may opt for matching latkan designs like these below.
Because they are less fancy and more simple, they do the job to spruce up the outfit as expected.
