With changing times and fashion trends, Indian wedding dresses have undergone a sea change in terms of design and style. Designers are now experimenting with a varied colour palette, contemporary silhouettes and modern lines. Modern Indian wedding dresses are not jarringly ostentatious anymore.
The philosophy of ‘less is more’ is catching on and designers are working on producing bridal wear that packs in intricate craftsmanship that is impressive, while striving to keep the dress comfortable at the same time.
For brides-to-be gearing up for their wedding shopping, here is a look at the latest trends in Indian wedding dresses so that you can choose the best of the wedding dresses for your big day.
Indian wedding dresses are no longer limited to colours like red, green and gold. Experimental designers and brides alike are rooting for pastels, yellows and whites – colours that were never used before in weddings.
Luscious peach, striking coral, appealing fuchsia and turquoise are some of the popular colours being picked by brides this season. When paired with elegant jewellery, Indian wedding dresses in such unconventional colours are certain to make your bridal ensemble the talk of the town! So there, we said it. You don’t have to stick to traditional colours and designs when choosing your wedding outfit. Unleash the free spirit in you and pick an unconventional colour if you feel like it.
Gone are the days when you had to wear a boring blouse with a heavy saree for your wedding. The latest trend in Indian wedding dresses is to wear sarees that are light and comfortable. Get innovative with the blouse design or the drape of the saree to make your wedding outfit stand out. Backless blouses are a rage this season if you want to sport a sexy look. Pre-draped sarees are another option if you want an outfit that is draped to perfection.
The most popular trend in lehenga designs is to keep the lehenga lightweight and yet include intricate craftsmanship. Gota patti embroidery is one such craft that enables designers to weave exquisite designs on the lehenga while also keeping it light and comfortable.
When it comes to the silhouettes, there are ballroom lehengas that have a flare that gives them a ballroom gown appearance.
Fishtail lehengas are also very popular among brides. They beautifully accentuate the waist and hips and also give you a flatteringly different look.
If you cannot imagine Indian wedding dresses without silk or brocade, wait till we introduce you to the latest trend in bridal wear - sheer fabrics with lots of lace or zari work. Satin and georgette outfits are also equally popular with the brides. Lehengas with a sheer or tulle overlay and elaborate borders are ruling the ramp this season. These outfits look classy and contemporary while also retaining the traditional element in them be it from to the silhouette or the design.
Keep these trends in mind while picking your Indian wedding dresses this season. This way, you can be sure that your wedding outfits will be in sync with what is in vogue this season.
