As much as heavy embroidery is attractive, it is equally troublesome. Embroidery makes your dress heavy which will only weigh you down for the many hours you have to withstand your relatives and the rains.

While you’ve got everything in place, picking the right colors is of great importance.

Pastel shades of peach, pink and purple work wonders for this romantic season.
In the end it all just boils down to what you feel comfortable in. So go for what makes you look and feel best!
