Girls, you probably didn’t care about your grandmother’s or mother’s wedding lehenga or all the other gorgeous pieces of clothing your mother has shown you over the years, and you couldn’t be bothered to even look at it. But as you being a new jouney, all the little things begin to matter to you. Heirlooms are typically clothes and jewelry that have been passed down from generation to generation. However, the morden day bride is reinventing what ‘heirloom’ menas to her and is incorporating them in a morden, practical yet thoughtful ways.
Sanna Vohra has picked out four heirlooms that brides and their families tend to give and showing you how to give it a modern twist to your oufits and still look glam.
Does your mom have gorgeous and traditional Kanjeevaram or Benarasi sarees that aren’t being used? You can use them in a number interesting ways and give them a modern twist. You can think at converting them into amazing anarkalis. Don’t worry, the feel of saree will still be there, while you dazzle in an Anarkali. If you are the adventurous type, you can convert sarees to saress dresses. It is an ideal wear for any part event.

#2 Revamp that Lehenga
Are you struggling to select the right outfits for your wedding functions? You can use your mother’s lehenga that has been lying in her closet, unused for ages. A half lehenga is an amazing choice for your mehendi ceremony – it will make it easy for you to move around during the function. You can even look into changing its borders and wear it over a corset.
A traditional Phulkari or Kanjeevaram dupatta , wear these beautiful dupattas with a modern crop top and a skirt for a total chic look for your mehendi or haldi ceremony. To complete this look, wear statement earrings and coloful bangles with it.
#4 Fix that Saree
If you can’t use a saree due to it’s tattered borders, you can stitch a new border on it keeping the color scheme in mind. And it will be as good as new. If you have a plain saree and you are out of ides… we suggest you go in for block printing. This will give your saree a new and beautiful look.
