Wearing heavy blingy lehengas in shades of red and maroon for your wedding day is no longer the norm. The fashion-forward brides of today prefer wearing lightweight lehengas made of net, chiffon, or silk. Not only the fabric, but even the colours are undergoing a transformation with black, white, and pastels gaining a lot of preference. 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 embroidery will make you look like a fairy tale princess on your special day.
The Bridal Touch: Add some colour with a set of dazzling rubies and diamond necklace and earrings. Don’t be wary of big rocks, you deserve all the attention you will get.
2. Black beauty
Defy all the naysayers who are against black for a wedding look with this Malasa creation. The flowy lehenga looks both traditional and edgy — just like you.
The Bridal Touch: Wear a black opal maang tika with deep kohl in your eyes and bright red lips. Now here’s a look that says you own the stage.
3. Soft pastels
Look feminine without 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 glowing skin. Wear a polki necklace for added dazzle. Finish the look with a soft side braid and a gajra.
4. Say it with sequins
Sequins have a unique charm. They add glamour and an old-world elegance that will make you feel like royalty. 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, 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.
