With the wedding season in full swing, the latest lehenga trends are on display and this is surely exciting for brides who are looking forward to their own big day. 

Brides have certainly moved on from the typical traditional bridal wear to explore the newly emerging celebrity-inspired lehengas. The gorgeous bridal lehengas of celebrities such as Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have set a new standard for Indian brides. 


Luckily, some off-the-charts designers like Anita Dongre are working in a similar direction to give brides the perfect lehenga inspired by creative Bollywood trends. But before you can spot a lehenga that you think is best for your big day,


Here are some important things that you should keep in mind. 


Explore Different Silhouettes

Commonly brides tend to go for an a-line lehenga as this silhouette has been around for a long time and is extremely reliable. However, with time this style has gotten monotonous and outdated as there are numerous trendy lehenga styles coming up every day.

Breaking out of your comfort zone can surely help you find the perfect attire for your big day. Experiment with new ruffle lehengas or the latest design in mermaid silhouette if you wanna make a statement on your wedding day while keeping it chic and trendy.


Try new colours

While this colour is a classic pick for Indian brides, you do not need to settle with red because it’s not the same era as 10 years ago. Today we have countless new designer dresses available in a wide variety of hues and ones which can be even customised as per your taste.

You can make a statement and go for something extraordinary such as peach, light pink, powder blue, or a combination of colours that make sense to you such as emerald, lime green, burgundy, or blue. It’s all about choosing the colour that resonates with your personality.

This green bridal lehenga is an amazing pick for brides who want to make a statement yet be in touch with their traditional roots.

 Get a lehenga that’s made for your body shape

A huge variety of designer lehengas can be confusing for brides, especially when they are unsure about their body type.

To embrace every moment of your big day, it’s essential to have a dress that fits you like it’s made for you. Hence, it’s extremely important to consider your body shape while you look for lehengas. 


  • For brides possessing a rectangular-shaped body, a heavy flared lehenga would be the best. 
  • A panel-length lehenga is most suitable for women with a heavy waist or tummy. You can style it with a jacket-style choli. 
  • A-line lehenga would be a perfect fit for women with pear-shaped bodies. It’s best to go for soft fabric lehengas, velvet, or chiffon for an elegant look.


Be picky with the designs


Designer lehengas just have many options that you can consider, but some popular ones are zari, sequins, gotta patti, chikankari, and thread work.

The artistic and intricate designs of these lehengas make the bride feel grand. But before you pick one, pay attention to the embellishments, prints and embroideries and check if they are in-sync with your style.
