If the day of marriage is the first rank holder of a woman’s life, needless to say the bridal attire holds unequivocal importance! What better dress than a grand Lehenga Choli to accompany the bride on the big day that is celebrated with pomp, joy and show? Though the origin traces back to ancient India (even the Mauryan empire), the bridal lehenga is an ever evolving attire, timeless in appeal and chic with modern arts! Here are the trends in bridal lehenga you must watch out for if your wedding day is scheduled sometime this year!
A splash of colors that compliments the playful bride
Do not shy away from experimenting with the color of your lehenga! You may want to stick to the traditional red or pink hues that represents eternal Indian bride but go with a color that suits your personality on the reception event!
Choose a darker tone if that represents your personality. The bright, evergreen colors are straight out of regal Indian palaces and compliments the gold ornaments dearly. Often embroidered with intricate hand weaved Jadi work, the lehenga cholis in royal blue, blood maroon or peacock green amplifies the modern woman in you!
You may also choose to play a game of tones and experiment with the timeless pastels! My pick would be a cool peach lehenga choli in Banarasi silk, carefully detailed with ivory beads. How pretty and elegant the bride looks!
All that glitters..
