Intimate shaadi ceremonies have become the new normal and the internet is flooded with pictures and videos of several lockdown shaadis--each more beautiful than the other. From brides wearing masks to weddings with home-cooked food and DIY decor, we've seen it all. Another thing that I've noticed is that brides are opting for fuss-free fabrics for their lehengas, and rightly so. After all, who wants to be uncomfortable on their D-day, especially when it’s such a close-knit affair!?
So, if you’re a bride-to-be, we have some gota patti inspiration for you. Known as one of the most popular Indian embroidery styles, gota patti will not only add the right amount of bling to your look, but it’s lightweight and easily available too.
Let’s get started, shall we?
If you are a bride-to-be who is fond of floral prints but doesn’t want to wear a heavy outfit on her D-day, go for a gota patti lehenga just like this bride. The off-white lehenga features subtle all-over gota patti work in the same colour. The pink and red embroidered flowers add a pop of colour to her look and we love it!
Matching her outfit was her minimalistic makeup. Nude lippie, pink smokey eyes and bold brows--what's not to love?! Here are some beauty products that will help you achieve the same look.
We loved how this bride chose a plain red Sabyasachi lehenga with elaborate gold gota patti borders. The fiery red colour and the hint of gold add a touch of elegance and it's definitely an evergreen pick.
Anita Dongre truly is the queen of elegance and this saree proves so. If you’re not willing to wear a gota patti lehenga on your wedding day, wear a saree on your engagement, just like this bride did. Not only do we love the colour combination, but we’re also totally digging her classy jewellery and fresh face makeup look.
If you’re a minimalist bride, this handcrafted lehenga by Devnaagri with intricate gota and sequins embroidery is perfect for you. She paired it with a matching choli, and a dual-toned dupatta and really, is there anything more gorgeous than this?
Doesn’t this bride look mesmerising at her mehendi in the emerald green sharara with sequins, pearls & gota embroidery? Another of our faves from Devnaagri, she paired it with an organza dupatta and some choice jewellery pieces.
This bride might’ve opted for the usual red and pink lehenga, but the classy gota patti work all over the outfit won our hearts. A net dupatta with a gota patti jaal, a second red banarasi dupatta and minimal jewellery--what’s not to love about her look?
Gota patti originated from Rajasthan and therefore, there is no doubt that outfits with gota work look royal. Look at this bride--isn’t she looking stunning in a traditional red Anita Dongre lehenga with elaborate embroidery all over?
It’s been over two months since Rana Daggubati tied the knot with Miheeka Bajaj, but we’re still not over how stunning the new bride looked at her shaadi functions. For her haldi ceremony, she wore a plain yellow lehenga with a hint of powder blue and a thick gota border by Anand Kabra’s label. Aren’t you just loving her cheerful ensemble?
Gota patti is evergreen and no matter how many trends come and go, this is one Indian embroidery that we see season after season. Whether you're getting married in 2020 or planning a wedding early next year, these bridal inspirations should definitely be bookmarked.
