Wedding Dupatta

Our friend Andrea gave me a link to a post of different draping styles for dupattas for a wedding: http://www.peachesandblush.com/2012/03/lehenga-draping-styles-for-brides.html

I tested a few of them out today.

However, I have a problem. The dupatta that came with my dress is incredibly heavy. No matter what clips I wear, it falls off my head. I even tried modifying my hairstyle so that I had a bump to rest the dupatta against, but it was so heavy that it crushed even that and slid off my head.

We managed to get some pictures, but there’s no way I’ll be able to wear these styles with this dupatta.

The website also showed some styles with two dupattas. I think if I want one over my head, I may need to purchase a second, lighter one!

 

(Andrea also pointed out that I should mention that all my jewelry is fake! I’m cheap plus I don’t like having expensive items because it’s too much responsibility. I love costume jewelry!)

Here are some other pages with potential draping styles to try:
