It’s that time of the year again. When people gather around the bonfire distributing popcorn, roasted peanuts and til revri, singing merry and exuding warmth. It’s time to meet the loved ones. Pamper the new additions to the family. Feel the joy of togetherness and belonging. It’s Lohri time! Especially for the new brides from various parts of Northern India. It is of utmost importance in more than one way. Therefore it is only natural to dress up with élan to rise to the occasion. We at WedAbout have got for you these essential and handy tips for getting ready for your first Lohri after a wedding!
All eyes are bound to be on you, everyone wants a glimpse of the newest member and why not! Here are few options:
You can opt for the timeless traditions that are stunning and comfortable like our good old shahi Patiala salwar kameez, a striking Sharara, Velvet Sarees with zari work, Silk Sarees or Jacket Sarees. You can opt for a phulkari shawl or dupatta for some warmth in style.

Western silhouettes such as evening gowns are trending currently, be it any occasion. You can team up with all the ladies of the house to have a thematic dress-up!
Indo-western options are for those who fancy the marriage of modern and traditions. Dhoti pants, Dhoti Style Kurta, western style saree drape or Jackets over cigarette pants is a fantastic option.
If you are going for Ethnic outfits then you can opt for simple or messy buns; in case you decide on fusion or western looks, you can get your locks fall in deep curls suavely or try a head chain.
Since it is an evening event, you can opt for some bolder options such as deep, dark shades of lipsticks and eye makeup. Smokey eyes are an interesting option. The highlight is the sindoor you apply to mark a new beginning!
Pompom jewellery, Polki Diamonds, Choker sets, Huge Jhumkas, Maang tika, bangles, nothing is over the top since it is your day to sparkle and steal all the attention. But this is all incomplete without the famous Chooda which is the mark of a new bride!

Since this event requires you to stand and dance around the bonfire for quite too long, hence it is customary to opt for comfort rather than style. But guess what, Mojris provide both and go well with any silhouette!
Finally, we part on a happy note and wish you a very warm and blissful Lohri (whether first or otherwise) and may your charm be ever beaming!
