Wearing heavy blingy lehengas in shades of red and maroon for your wedding day is passe. The fashion forward brides now prefer wearing lightweight lehengas made of net, chiffon or silk. Not only the fabric, even the colours are undergoing a transformation with black, white and pastels gaining a lot of preference. Still looking for inspiration for your wedding trousseau? Take a cue from these options:

1. Embroidered Cape

Try this Pooja Rajpal Jaggi cape lehenga. The intricate emrboidery will make you look like a fairy tale princess on your special day.

The Bridal Touch: Add some colour with dazzling rubies and diamond necklace and earrings set. Don’t be shy to wear big rocks – you deserve all the attention you will get.

3. Soft Pastels

Look feminine without adding the bling in this Bhumika Grover jacket lehenga. These soft hues will especially look good if you have a day-time wedding.

The Bridal Touch: This look should be all about freshness. Keep your makeup light with an emphasis on natural face shine. Wear a polki necklace for added dazzle. Finish the look with a soft side braid with gajra.

4. Say it with Sequins

Sequins have a way about them. They add glamour and old world charm and make you feel like anything is possible. We love this powder blue outfit by Pooja Rajpal Jaggi.

The Bridal Touch:  Pull your hair back in a high jooda and wear statement chandelier jhumkis. Wear a shimmering gold net chunni on your head with a matching matha patti and you will look like a million bucks.

5. Summer Hues

This lemon jacket choli and white lehenga by Malasa defines elegance. The light thread work is perfect for the brides who do not want to carry heavy lehengas.

The Bridal Touch: If you are feeling bold then opt for a huge Kashmiri style headpiece in a silver tone instead of a simple maang tika.

6. The one-shoulder Diva

Here’s another style that blends comfort and style for daytime weddings. This piece by Bhumika Grover is a timeless classic that will serve you well even after your wedding celebrations are over.

The Bridal Touch: Upstyle it to get a bridal look. Pair it with a full zari work chunni over your head and a pearl choker. You can also wear a kamar peti to add more bling to the lehenga.
