Guess what girls, you don’t have to go all matchy - matchy when it comes to lehengas! Matching your choli to your lehenga and trying to find the exact same shade of dupatta is so last season. Wedding fashion has become a whole lot colourful! And we’re absolutely lovin’ it! Here’s some Insta inspiration of the best lehenga colour combinations for you to choose from.
1. Colour me bright!
Thank Anju Modi for all the stunning inspiration she’s been giving us! From the majestic clothes in Bajirao Mastani to this absolutely pepped-up outfit! A bright fuschia pink teamed with sky blue looks especially great in pictures. And we would totally love to see a bride wearing this on her wedding day.

2. Exquisite bride
We can never, ever have a list without a Sabyasachi mention. And this one’s taken a spot in our list of favourites! While the lehenga has extremely breathtaking embroidery, we couldn’t stop gushing over the unusual colour combination of coral and green. It’s gorge and beyond.

3. Purple and pinks
Squash ace Dipika Pallikal wore a bright purple and pink Anushree Reddy lehenga for her mehendi ceremony. And we never thought that this color combo could look this great! It’s pretty and girly and compliments the bride quite well. For the next shaadi function you’re attending, try out a purple salwar suit with a pink dupatta. It’s sure to fetch you tonnes of compliments!

4. Being royal
Well, well, how royal-looking is this Shyamal and Bhumika creation? We can totally imagine a bride wearing this royal blue and oyster pink set for her reception. It’s elegant and the oyster pink top perfectly balances out the royal blue skirt. Dark smokey eyes and nude lips are the way to go with this look!

5. The eternal combo
Red and orange will never EVER go out of fashion. We even love the ombre effect on the dupatta! JJ Valaya is known for his super-intricate designs and this one just takes our breath away. Try this out to look completely hatke on your sangeet ceremony.

6. Oh so pretty!
When pictures of Geeta Basra’s mehendi ceremony came out, we knew then and there that pastel pink and yellow will be the next big thing! Dressed by Archana Kochhar, the bride looked absolutely gorgeous. Try this combo for your mehendi ceremony and do it up with a statement maathapatti just like the newlywed Mrs Singh!

7. Colour bomb it!
Trust Manish Arora to make the quirkiest and the funnest of lehengas! And this one is a colour riot! Fluorescent blue with hints of pink, red and gold. It’s even got just the slightest bit of royal blue. It’s fun and bold, and definitely a beat different from what we’re used to seeing. So brides-to-be, don’t get stuck in the matching game and put on something just as colourful as this!
