Trending Bridal Lehenga Dupatta Draping Styles

Your bridal lehenga choli offers you a degree of versatility to create a unique draping style for your big day. Though there are many traditional draping styles, you can opt for a unique one that moves away from the conventional.

In this post, we’ll see some of the lehenga dupatta draping styles you could consider.

Traditional Punjabi lehenga dupatta draping style


Those who’d like to stick to the classics can consider the traditional Punjabi draping style. Here, the dupatta covers half of the head while both ends lie at the front. One side is tossed over the shoulder for a dramatic look that highlights your necklace, earrings and maang tikka.

Drape-it-like-a-cape style

If you are yearning for an unconventional and sassy look, you can try wearing a cape bridal dupatta style. Similar to those worn by superheroes, wear your dupatta at the back of your shoulders. This allows you to highlight your midriff, jewellery and lehenga design. A perfect bet for an Indo-Western look.

Kamar Bandh(belt) drape style

Here, you use a kamar band (waistband) to keep your dupatta in place. You can pleat your dupatta over one shoulder and toss a part of it across your hair. This unique style will give you a magical blend of a traditional and contemporary look. With this, you can highlight your toned waist while helping you to manage your dupatta better. If you are healthy and wants to look slim on lehenga then it can be a good option for you.

Gujarati drape style

The Gujarati front pallu style has been a part of popular culture and Bollywood for quite some time now. Once pinned up, you can move freely as required. With time, brides across cultures have embraced the Gujarati draping style for its convenience and elegance.

The Royal Ghoonghat style

Though the Ghoonghat has waned in popularity amongst north Indian women, it still finds a place in modern lehenga dupatta styles. There is something about the transluscent ghoonghat that adds an enticing allure to the whole wedding lehenga choli. You have the option to cover either your whole face or just your head. This more or less looks quite similar to western bridal dresses.

Saree drape style

If you are looking for a cohesive blend between a saree and lehenga choli, you can drape your dupatta to look like the saree pallu. This style also works if you have a heavily embellished dupatta and a monotonous lehenga and choli. You can tuck one end of the dupatta at the left side of the waist and wear it over the opposite shoulder to show off the elegant embroidery of your look.

Dupatta on head style

Similar to the Punjabi dupatta draping style, here, you drape your dupatta in an unconventional way. Usually, this entails using draping the dupatta equally across the back and front of you with the center corner firmly on your head. Brides opt for this ensemble if they have a monochromatic lehenga choli or if they want a subtle yet impactful look.


Compared to our mother's generations, brides these days have a lot of options to present their lehenga choli in the best way. The very way a lehenga is draped can make a big difference when it comes to enhancing your appearance. If you're a mother, you can select any of the above mentioned styles for your daughter when it comes to Girls Lehenga Choli. Is there any other lehenga choli dupatta drape you can think of?
