10 New Age Bridal Lehenga Designers We Loved In 2018!

What is the second most stressful thing for brides, after choosing a groom? Well, it is finding your bridal lehenga. We have all dreamt of beautiful designer outfits for our wedding, similar to the gorgeous Sabyasachi outfit Nargis Fakhri wore in Rockstar or the royal red Manish Malhotra creation that Rani Mukherjee donned in Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna.

Luckily for brides, it is no longer only about Sabyasachi, Manish Malhotra, or Ritu Kumar. The wedding couture industry is now blessed with plenty of new age and upcoming designers and labels and we spotted a lot of amazing creations on our 2018 brides.

Here are the best bridal designers of 2018!
