10 Unconventional Lehenga Colours for the New-age Bride!

It’s time to ditch the reds, maroons, and pinks, aka the standard suhaag colors, the go-to hues for any conventional bride. Brides today envisage themselves in shades unlike any seen before. They are going all out and experimenting with colors and styles, and the results are stunning –  unique colors being introduced into the lehenga universe!

 

From coral to green, lavender to grey, brides are challenging the shade cards for their lehengas, and I am not complaining 🙂 Not only are these brides opting for new colors, but through their choice, they are bringing out their unique tastes in fashion, and hidden facets of their personality too.  So what are we waiting for?

 

Here’s me bringing you a list of 10 unconventional lehenga colors I spotted on brides this wedding season:

 

1. Green and coral lehenga

2. Mint green lehenga

Have you ever met a woodland nymph? You can now with this bride wearing a stunning mint green lehenga. Embellished with embroidery and sequins, and silver gota work, it’s perfect for a daytime wedding or a function. What I personally love the most is the shimmery blouse with tassels- it is contemporary, edgy, and stunning!

 

3. Lavender lehenga

4. Elegant burgundy lehenga

Want to keep it classy? Simply pick a bold colour and ditch red- all at the same time!

If yes, then this vibrant shade of burgundy is the solution to your lehenga worries! This offbeat colour paired stunning zari work and modern jewellery, is a complete delight to the eyes.

 

5. Olive and grey lehenga

Some outfits have the power to leave me speechless, and this olive and green lehenga is one of them! This bride’s lehenga choice is awe-inspiring- a perfect mix of contemporary hues and traditional-style. The olive and green lehenga with heavy embroidery, paired with a red zari dupatta is giving us major #RoyalVibes!

 

6. Subtle grey lehenga

Grey is the new gorgeous. Having ditched the regular bling, this bride has opted for a subtle and chic grey lehenga, at once minimal but stunning! For brides opting out for something more minimalistic and less traditional, this is YOUR PICK!

What is that one word which pops up in your head, right after you see this lehenga? I don’t know about y’all, but for me, it is ‘regal’! A mix of pickle and parakeet green, with gold embellishments, darker zari borders and a sheer white dupatta for the contrast, this lehenga is tailor-made for queens.

 

8. Floral lehenga with pink hues

There are floral lehengas and then there Sabyasachi floral lehengas! The designer sure has a penchant for turning the regular to ‘hatke’! Crafted a wide array of colours- torch red, rose, contessa, apricot, and sage, the lehenga is outright irresistible. Not to miss the dramatic diamond jewellery with emerald drops!

 

9. Pink lehenga with multi-coloured embroidery

I totally looooooove how this bride has experimented with her lehenga! For starters, she has picked a colour which can never go wrong – Baby pink. But, that’s not it, there is a lot more going on – the variety of designs, embroidery on the lehenga, from flowers and ferns to geometric patterns- this outfit has it all!!

 

10. Orange and red ombre lehenga

12 Mandaps which are so gorgeous, they look straight out of a fairytale wedding!

 

When it comes to writing anything related to wedding decor, my eyes automatically light up with happiness and excitement. If you were to ask me why, my answer would be because wedding decor is something I simply cannot get enough of and I am pretty much sure neither can y’all!

 

Indian weddings are filled with oodles of decor ideas to pick and choose from. One integral part of Indian weddings is the mandap- under which the bride and groom tie the knot! In terms of decor, these mandaps have come a long way. From floating mandaps to the simplistic ones at the beach and from opulent floral mandaps to minimalistic rustic ones- there is no limit to the kind of creativity infused in this element of decor!

Chikankari Lehenga is a breath of fresh air this summer wedding season!

I remember when I was six my mother was talking over the phone describing her kurti, saying “It is a chikan kurta.” Can you imagine a poor child’s confusion? I fell in love with chikankari the very instant my mum showed me her kurta. My wardrobe has at least 6-7 such outfits. The delicate, hand woven embroidery is a speciality of Lucknow. The intricate thread work has its own old school charm with a touch of contemporary hues.

 

As a big fan of chikankari, I was over the moon when I learned brides are now flirting with chikankari lehengas! Let’s take a trip down Lucknow’s lanes to enrich ourselves with chikankari ensembles!
