Bridal lehenga shopping is stressful, let's be honest. You want to look traditional in some ways but trendy and modern, too, at the same time. You're not sure if you want to go for the classic red or choose a pastel, floral lehenga or a unique shade of blue. Well, looking at some of the recent wedding photographs, we're pitching you a vivid yellow this time! Look brighter than sunshine in a yellow lehenga for your D-day, ladies. And if you're looking for inspiration, we have just the one for you.
Earlier this year, Alia Bhatt wore a gorgeous one for the big fat Ambani wedding and left us gaping after. She got hers from ace designer Sabyasachi and looked ethereal in it. Bright, fresh and elegant--that's the beauty of a Sabya, amirite?!
All this colour is reminding me of the Coldplay song. And it was all yellow...
With one shade for the entire lehenga-choli set, the monotoning style is perfect for brides who want to grab all the eyes, yet look understated. And the colour sure makes a statement for itself! No wonder we feel happy and energetic every time we look at anything yellow.
Getting into the details, both the lehenga skirt and the blouse came with all-over embroidery in the same shade of yellow. The georgette dupatta too had slight embroidery on it. Sabya is Sabya, you have got to give it to him. And with this kind of reputation, sadly, comes a heavy price tag!
However, if you don't want to spend like Miss Bhatt but want to look like her, there are other designers who have made equally gorgeous pieces in keeping with the yellow theme. If you're sold on yellow for your wedding day, here are a few options for you that won't need you to sell your kidney. Check them out:
Harkiran Basra is a Chandigarh based designer who nailed the all-yellow bridal look. Real bride, Meghan Kamat chose to wear it on her special day and, boy, did she look drop-dead-gorgeous. The lehenga skirt was filled with embroidery and zari work, and so was the dupatta, while the blouse was completely plain yellow balancing the look. Because it was a day beach wedding, she beamed as she walked down the aisle. How beautiful!

Abhinav Mishra has made quite a name for himself in the last few years owing to his stunning mirror work. He uses fun colours on his lehengas and adds pretty gota patti work to them that makes them shine.
So, have we made our case for a yellow wedding lehenga yet?!
