Your wedding day is one of the days which call for you to be dressed in the best of the fineries and the most exclusive designer wear.
Your wedding lehenga plays an important role in determining how good you look on your wedding day.
Half of the ‘how to look the best at your wedding’ checklist is taken care of after purchasing the lehenga.
Well, not just any other lehenga, but THE wedding lehenga with embroidery designs which turn heads wherever you go.
We are of the opinion that what good is a lehenga that does not draw envious glances from the other women around!? Bridal lehengas have that ability to grab eyeballs - solely through intricate embroidery and elaborate detailing that one just can’t stop admiring.
The following is the list of our personal favourite lehenga embroidery designs which would rightly make you the centre of attention!
Gota is a variety of embroidery fashioned by stitching pieces of golden or silver fabrics on the base fabric. It can therefore be thought of as a type of appliqué work combined with stitch work using golden or silver threads. It is one of our favourite lehenga embroidery designs owing to its regal and classy appeal. Ace fashion designer Anita Dongre uses gota patti extensively to create her exotic lehengas, taking inspiration from Rajasthan. The featured peach lehenga and dupatta offset by an alluring gold choli is a perfect way to play traditional yet classy at your wedding. Do full justice to this beautiful piece and accessorise it with silver earrings, bangles and a maang tikka.
This beautiful 3D floral embroidered lehenga by Siddartha Tytler is elegant and gentle. The reason this outfit features in our favourite lehenga embroidery designs list is due to its refreshingly different look. Lending the outfit a contemporary appeal is the cropped copper choli with zigzag embroidery design. The matching trim at the border of the lehenga evokes an otherworldly harmony and a glowing opulence. The dupatta completes this set which is perfect for days when you want a good mix of tradition and modernity in your outfit.
Cutwork is a surface embroidery technique wherein two main stitches are used: running and buttonhole stitch. Mainly, it is worked on fine linen or cotton fabric. It is generally worked in threads that match the fabric colour, traditionally white or ecru. Cutwork embroidery design is arguably one of the most elegant embroidery design techniques, producing absolutely stunning lehengas with intricate designs.
This red velvet cut embroidered lehenga by Saroj Jalan is one her creations which is rich in ethnic patterns and royal designs that take us close to our cultural roots and reminds us of our glorious and majestic past. Comprising of an antique cut work ghagra with scallop border and a red velvet blouse with all over embroidery, the lehenga is a sight to behold. It also features red net stole with a scalloped border and all over buti work which would definitely make people enquire about your wonderful lehenga shopping.
Resham embroidery design is that art which is never going to become primitive and obsolete. This exquisite lehenga choli set from the House of Trove comes in an amalgamation of beautiful colours - plum, maroon and gold. Exquisite crystal, resham and dabka embroidery adorns the entire lehenga that has beautiful multi coloured tassels on the side. The plum coloured choli has a deep back with a tie-up and is embellished with two-toned sequin work over brocade fabric. The maroon lehenga has an antique finish border along the waist and hem, giving your waist an extra oomph.
Our love for gota-patti transcends all boundaries and we simply had to feature this outfit owing to its sheer beauty. This Anita Dongre outfit features an exquisite lime green raw silk lehenga with traditional gota pati embroidery. It comes with a lime green embroidered raw silk choli and net dupatta with detailing around border. This intricate embroidery design over a contemporary colour would make anyone go gaga over its beauty. We especially love it for its unconventional colour and the breezy silhouette which looks just about perfect for a summer wedding. Cool, classic and contemporary, Anita Dongre sure does know how to do it best!
