Tie-Dye Lehenga

Real bride, Ishita Soni looks resplendent in this unique tie-dye lehenga. The purple and fuschia colour combination along with the 3D mirror worked flowers are a visual treat and look amazing when she twirls about. She has chosen jewellery which matches with the flower embroidery and completes the whole look.

This bride took the internet by storm in her self designed lehenga with matching masks.

In A Simple Salwar Kameez

If you want to keep your bridal attire simple and understated then go for a simple salwar kameez in bright, cheery tones. You can either choose a two or three-tones suit or can go for a monochrome look. To make sure that it isn’t too simple, choose bright colours such as red or pink with thread work. You can even choose something with Swarovski work for that extra dash of glam.

Something Glam

This gold, off-shoulder offbeat blouse sported by the bride went viral for its unmistakable style. She has paired it with a simple blue lehenga and a pale pink shawl. Floral jewellery from Prune India and those super cool sunglasses make her stand apart. 

Multi-hued Lehenga

Why bother choosing a particular colour when you can have all the colours on your outfit? This is a great option for brides who are looking for a multi-hues option. While the one here, has a patch work style you can also opt for a panelled lehenga style. The easiest option is to pair it with a mirror work blouse in silver, gold or black and you are all set. With such a vibrant lehenga, you can choose to keep jewellery to the minimum and let your outfit do all the talking. 

Something Sassy

Doesn’t the bride look like a total diva? We are loving the multi-tiered ruffled skirt which is matched by the ruffles on the sleeve. The bride has boldly eschewed the use of a neckpiece and has instead sported an embellished shawl in a darker shade of pink which really brings together the whole look. 


Something Unique

We cannot tale our eyes off this gorgeous lotus inspired lavender lehenga with an ombre effect. The bride looks stunning and the floral background also helps flaunt the outfit. For jewellery, she has chosen jhumkas and lotus style jewellery.

Looking for some bright coloured outfits, we have one for you! This neon green and blue lehenga look absolutely revisiting. The bright pink shawl adds a pop of colour and gives relief from the neon shades.

With A Bralette

For all the daring brides out there, you can replace the blouse with a bralette. This immediately takes the glamour quotient up several notches.

Mid-Length Lehenga

Actress, Shweta Tripathi, took the internet by storm in this cute red and yellow mid-length lehenga. 


A Sexy Strapless Gown

This is an unconventional option for Mehndi but we must say that the bride has absolutely slayed it in her pastel grey one-shoulder gown designed by Manish Malhotra. 


A Pre-Draped Saree

If you want to wear a saree but feel that it may be difficult to manage one then go for a partially draped saree. It has the elegance of an actual saree while at the same time helps you to move around and dance comfortably.
