Indian wedding dresses are the most colorful and beautiful pieces of artwork on this planet, period. As a bride, you will be at the epicenter of all the attention and hence your bridal lehenga design must be so unique that it stands out from any design ever seen. So choosing from the vast variety of bridal lehenga designs is a tedious and time consuming task. But the oooohhs and woooows you receive makes it worth the effort.
Bridal lehengas or wedding lehengas as some call them, range from plain simple ones to rich and grandiose embroidered ones with stones and sequins with heavy borders. Heavily embroidered bridal lehenga with sequins, bootis, patches and mirror work are in trend during the wedding season. Kundan work along with zardosi and minakari in gold thread or a cream-coloured combination with maroon, red, bottle green or purple can be a great choice for the big day. Pair this with a bordered net or silk dupatta for an added effect.
For the top or blouse, a V shape neckline is in vogue. Netted sleeves or sleeveless patterns look best. A simple neckline can help vintage or classic jewellery stand out for that simpering, bridal look.
