A bride eagerly awaits her wedding day, a moment that will change her life forever. But before D-Day, she has to decide on a lot of things. And one of THE most important decisions a bride has to make is selecting her wedding outfits! Now, the modern bride is always looking for something “different”, something that will make people gasp and admire her lehenga. Brides are going bolder and unconventional with their colours, and below are our favourite picks for this season!
1. Elegant Orange
Orange is a colour which is not too far from the traditional family of reds. This colour is quite radiant and will look good on any Indian skin tone. Orange and gold is a great combination for a bride to wear on her wedding day. You can take inspiration from this gorgeous Anita Dongre ensemble.
If you want to feel like a princess on your wedding day, golden is the way to go. Golden coloured lehengas look magnificent and give a royal touch to a bride’s appearance. Take inspiration from Sabyasachi’s collection for your perfect golden lehenga!
There is something about this colour which is soothing to the eye. A perfect colour for summer weddings, you can pair a coral coloured lehenga with a pink dupatta or have silver embellishments on it. Take inspiration from Kamana, a real bride, to rock this colour.
Every bride wants to stand out on her wedding day and green is just the colour to help her shine. There are ample shades of green available if you don’t want to wear the usual dark green. Take inspiration from Sabyasachi and go for a mint lehenga or a beautiful peacock green one.
If you want to look hatke on your wedding day, you should definitely go for an ivory lehenga. The combination of ivory and gold is just perfect as the ivory provides a simple and elegant look and the golden work gives it that glitter and shine.
Another colour belonging to the family of reds, pink is the way to go. There are so many hues available in pink, such as fuchsia and rose pink. You can pair up your pink lehenga with either a golden or silver dupatta. Rose pink looks elegant and won’t be too far from a traditional bridal lehenga either!
Ladies, no matter what, you can’t shy away from red. It is the most traditional and classic of all bridal lehengas. But be bold and say byebye to the tomato red lehenga and pick a wine or maroon instead. Traditional, yet fashion-forward - win-win!
