Well, it is the day you have been waiting for, maybe planning every little detail until perfection. Your big fat Indian wedding is almost here, and you just cannot get enough of re-doing things. If the recent covid restrictions have toned down your extravaganza, one way to still stand out from the rest is to go all out with your wedding outfit and lehnga design. Yes! You read that right, trying silhouettes that radiate tradition with a touch of novelty. Off all things vogue and must-try out there, we have listed down things you can shortlist for your one-of-a-kind wedding. Prep the day with much oomph and drama.
1. Dramatic sleeves
The thirties called and they want their sleeves back! An unconventional lehenga with dramatic sleeves is just what you can try. The Renaissance-inspired lehenga design has made a comeback and we won’t let them go! These can range from lamb chop styles, raglan sleeves or Deepika Padukone’s personal favourite balloon sleeves. Style them with a choker, uncut diamond jewellery to balance the drama.
2. The pastel charade
With minimal weddings comes an array of colours. Especially pastel-toned hues in pinks and peaches. Go for the subtle look for your big day with pastel green or yellow. This visually calming look can be accompanied by white and blue hydrangeas. Most suited for an outdoor wedding, this lehenga design beats most done, cliché wedding looks. Pair these with beautiful diamond crust jewellery sets on the big day.
3. Going classic
Celeb weddings have given one common cue for your big day. It is repurposing classic colours. For instance, opting for a gold lehenga with intricate embroidery. Or similar to Natasha Dalal’s wedding attire, opt for a sombre tone of silver or grey. Dazzle about by adding your favourite diamond set.
4. Take the plunge!
While traditional sleeves freeze in time, it is your time to bring plunging, bold necklines for ringing the wedding bells. The lehenga can boast of embellishment bedazzlements. Add a bit of charm with ruffles and hemlines for the lehenga choli look. Double the fun with two dupattas which are the new trend in town.
5. It’s raining red!
While red is still the most worn and most opted for colour for the big day some chic alternatives are cerise, dark maroon looks. Cerise brocade lehenga look is the ethereal choice for a magnetic entry. Add some matching roses to add panache to this look.
The modern bride does not shy away from choosing too many colours for the wedding lehenga design. Floral, organza and motif clad wedding lehengas boast simplicity and charm. Apart from being an eye-catching look, this vibrant piece will also go well with glasses or shades for the pre-wedding shoot. This out-of-the-world vibe attire can reflect your bubbly and cheerful self amid peers.
The ultimate choice in lehengas would be something that speaks for you instead. Meanwhile, you can smile and wave at your friends and be the best version of yourself on the big day. All of those nights gone planning is right in front of you, plan and prep like a pro!
