Traditional Bridal Lehengas For 2015-2016 Winter Brides

Trends change every season – from colours, to styles to what not! But when it comes to a wedding, most brides to be prefer to go in for traditional bridal lehengas. And why not? Most of us have grown up seeing our aunts and cousins wear beautiful red and pink bridal lehengas on their wedding day and it’s something a lot of us have dreamt about.

So without wasting anymore time, let’s jump right into it.

We start with this gorgeous Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla red and gold lehenga that Sonam wore at Bridal Fashion Week. We love the cleanliness of the embroidery! It’s heavy, but the design comes across so easily!

Coming to the wedding, we first came across this picture, which looks to be pooja, where it looks like she’s wearing a choodidar suit. We love the shade of green on the chudidaar.

Nishka Lulla’s Wedding Wardrobe

Designer Nishka Lulla tied the knot a few days back and we’re taking a look at her wedding wardrobe.

For Mehendi, she chose a yellow lehenga, which, we’ll be honest, was not something we’d pick at the first glance given the difficult to carry off silhouette. But one glance at her and we were in love! And are those butterflies on her lehenga? Love it!

For the Sangeet, Nishka went with a super bling-ey blue lehenga that would make anyone feel like a princess!

Take a look at this video where her lehenga is glitterinnnnng!

Mandeep Liit’s Bridal Lehengas – Bangalore Fashion Week 2014

One collection caught our eye at the Bangalore Fashion Week in an instant – Mandeep Liit’s bridal collection.The classic bridal colours – red, gold and pink have been extensively used and the designs are something we can all wear with ease. They are classic, and beautiful.

 

Different shades of red coupled with gold. Also, if you see the right most lehenga, it’s only the bottom bit that has heavy embroidery while the top of the lehenga is kept light. This is a great idea for brides who want to go all out, but want a more lighter lehenga.

Look at the ghera of this red lehenga? Perfect fit for the bride on her Sangeet, or if she’s really looking to go all out, at her Mehendi function.

Golden was used as a main colour too, in a lot of lehengas. Especially loving the one in the centre.

 And when you’re talking about bridal lehengas, how can you possibly leave out pink? Digging that bright shade of pink on the left!

Bridal Lehengas We Like

Bridal lehengas are the ultimate of Indian clothes. High time we did a post on them.

We’re going to start with a lehenga that almost instantly went viral the second the pictures came out. The blue Manish Malhotra lehenga that Deepika Padukone wore a few months back. It literally took our breath away.

Image

At the same show where Deepika wore the above lehenga was another bridal lustworthy lehenga from Manish Malhotra. And it looks like a high waist one.

Image

Then we come to a Jyotsna Tiwari lehenga. Such a lovely lehenga!

Image

Next we come to a gorgeous set of pink bridal lehengas from Falguni and Shane. We’re in love.Image

Next, we come to what Genelia D’Souza wore at a family member’s wedding. Though not the bride herself, this lehenga is a classic red, green and golden lehenga for the bride.

Image

Preeti S. Kapoor too, presented a classic red and gold bridal lehenga a while back. Digging that shade of red.

Image

Raageshwari Loomba recently got married and wore the most beautiful baby pink(ish) lehenga. So pretty!

Image

Ok, that’s enough lust for the day!
