AICW ’15 – Mehendi & Sangeet / Engagement Outfit Inspiration For The Bride

SO MANY FASHION WEEKS! So many drool worthy outfits coming your way!!

Starting with the Amazon India Couture Week 2015, we’ll begin with our picks for Mehendi and Sangeet outfitsfor the bride!

Mehendi Outfits For The Bride

If you are a bride who loves her lehengas, opt for simple, yet vibrant lehengas. Let the colour and the silhouette do the talking and keep the embroideries to minimum. We loved the classic Anju Modi lehenga and the fun, colourful lehenga from Debarun by Heroine.

A-Pink-Lehengas

If you are a bride however who wants something lighter, easier to manage and very ‘Mehendi appropriate’ at the same time, this Varun Bal gown would be our pick. (PS: This gown is full sleeves, so for a bride-to-be wearing it on her mehendi, it may require some modifications.)

A-Mehendi-RohitBahl

And if you’re looking to go for something different, we loved the thought of this Rahul Mishra jacket lehenga as a Mehendi outfit – so unusual and lovely! (Again, modifications on the sleeve may be required)

Sangeet/Engagement Outfits For The Bride

The Debarun collection by Heroine really caught our eyes. They had beautiful lehengas, and it almost seemed like they have something for every bride!

For the brides who want to really step up their game (Come on, a wedding only happens once), this Rimple and Harpreet Narula lehenga took our breath away!

And for the brides who want to take this opportunity to wear something spectacular, but different, these Gaurav Gupta and Sabyaschi lehengas (sort of?) would be our picks!

We love the big ghera!

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.

Shahid then uploaded a pic of him and Mira on his Instagram account. Look at that gotta patti work on her dupatta!

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!

LFW’15 Inspiraton – Summer Wedding – Sangeet & Wedding Outfits For The Sister Of The Bride

Moving on to sangeet and the wedding, here is some solid inspiration for the sister/best friend of the bride.

We’re starting with a floral lehenga from Sabyasachi’s latest collection. Love it!

Sabyasachi wasn’t the only one who brought on his floral game. Arpita Mehta brought it on too.

Anushree Reddy’s lehengas are always drool worthy! They yellow one is quite wedding worthy while the pink lehenga would be perfect for a sangeet.

If your family is chilled out, you can definitely consider being a vision in white with these three pretty white lehengas by Anamika Khanna, Anushree Reddy & Payal Singhal respectively.

Manish Malhotra is a designer who often goes big on bling, but he keeps things subtle in the lehenga below. However, the dreamy addition of net over the yellow fabric still ensures a “wedding worthy” feeling.

And our last outfit goes out to the sisters and friends who prefer anarkalis over lehengas. Crushing on this floral anarkali by Soumitra Marg.

LFW ’15 Inspiration – Summer Wedding – Wedding Lehengas For the Bride

There were 3 lehengas that stood out from Lakme Fashion Week 2015 which would be perfect for the bride. Not that we’re complaining! This is after all fashion week and not bridal week.

The first is this beauty from Suneet Verma. Such happy colours!

Summer is also a time when brides look for ways to cut down the ‘heaviness’ of the lehenga and this is mostly done by keeping the work on your lehenga simple. But what if you don’t want to do that? You only get to be a bride once, after all! Well, if that is the case, we really suggest this light pink Payal Singhal lehenga. There’s work all over, but the colour keeps it light to the eyes.

And the third is this Yogesh Chaudhary outfit. We’re still a little unsure whether it’s a lehenga or not, considering the fact that the length is not exactly that of a lehenga. However, regardless of what it is, this is the perfect example of how you can bring in both, a bright colour, and heavy work on your lehenga for a summer wedding. If you look closely, there aren’t any stones, or too many different materials in the embroidery. Just one kind of thread and style used all over, makin it easy on the eyes and relatively lighter.

Light Pink & Blue – Inspiration for Summer 2015

Pink and blue is a classic combination of sorts. Over the years, various shades from both, Team Pink and Team Blue have gotten together to produce beautiful results.

So we take a look at this classic combination with lighter shades of both colours and draw some inspiration for the incoming summer.

We start off with this gorgeous anarkali lehenga with sorbet shades of blue and pink. Such yummy colours!

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!
