Now that the engagement is announced and the wedding date will soon be fixed, you need to start your wedding shopping, girl! And the first thing on any bride’s wish list is a stunning designer lehenga. To make your life easier, we’ve picked the most stunning designs from the latest collections of our favourite designers. You might find it hard to choose just one.
1. Make them green
...With envy. This deep emerald green lehenga had us staring for the longest while. That colour would look fab on every girl and just look at the depth of embroidery work on this piece. Zoom in and stare. ;)
For a pre-wedding function, like the sangeet or mehendi you might want to consider a printed lehenga instead of the embroidered ones. We love the freshness of Anita Dongre’s new collection and this lehenga with it’s Mughal-era prints is no exception. Isn’t it just perfect for a day function?
And what a stunning white it is. Inspired by the colours of traditional Gujarati wear, this Varun Bahl creation was custom-designed for the bride. And we just can’t stop staring. Look closely at the pattern on the skirt - the contemporary florals are contrasted with geometric-work panels. Both the dupattas and the choli pick up the floral pattern in different colours. How can you not be in love?
Florals are a huge trend this season and trust Sabyasachi to put his own spin on it. You will look so regal walking to the stage and your groom in this raw silk lehenga with the hand-emroidered flowers.
Legend has it that cranes mate for life which makes this motif perfect for a bridal lehenga. Anita Dongre has lately been wowing us with her contemporary designs and this woven silk lehenga is what made us fall in love. Banarasi silk and gotapatti work, what else could a girl want in her bridal lehenga?
You know florals are huge when every designer puts it on the runway. We love this take on the printed floral lehenga by Varun Bahl. He simply ups the bling level by embroidering over the print! Also, we can’t get enough of that warm orange hue - one of the more unusual colours in bridal wear.
