Just a few months to the wedding day and you’re breaking bones searching far and wide for the perfect lehenga? While you hop from malls to local designers and Chandni Chowk, it’s a good idea to check out Instagram for some wedding lehenga design inspiration. Who knows, you might spot the perfect one! Here are 7 trousseau lehengas to inspire your tailor!
1. Deepika Padukone in Bajirao Mastani
Ever since the first trailer came out, we haven’t been able to take our eyes off Deepika! And this wedding season, her looks from the movie Bajirao Mastani are all the inspiration you need. Get tons of screenshots and look for red net and silk fabric. The trick lies in teaming it with three gorgeous drapes in shades of red and gold for a royalty-inspired look.
Athiya Shetty has been giving us some major style goals. For the ring ceremony or sagan function, this subtle but extremely pretty lehenga is the way to go. This chanderi silk lehenga and chunni can be easily replicated and you can team it with a maangtikka, earrings and lots of bangles.
Anita Dongre is famous for her gotta pattis. Rich hand embroidery and gotta patti clubbed together look absolute gorge. BTW, Anita Dongre sells separates. So, you could buy the crop choli and get your lehenga skirt from a local store. Mehendi perfect!
For your sangeet night, experiment with colours and pick shades of the same colour for a visually slimmer look! Source through your local cloth markets to pick out prints and designs in blues and greens. Let go of the head drape and keep the jewellery light so you don’t end up looking OTT.
We absolutely can’t stop looking at this glorious creation by Neeta Lulla. Designed for her own daughter's wedding, this might take a while for your tailor to figure out but is not entirely impossible! Look out for intricate borders and temple motifs. Bright, poppy coloured fabrics will look best.
For your engagement night or a pre-wedding dinner, we are all for the latest ‘must-have’ colour - white! And when Alia wears it, it looks even nicer :) The skirt is pretty simple to achieve while the kurti and dupatta have heavy zardozi work. That means while your tailor can replicate it, the process takes time. So place the order with ample time in hand.
