Bridal Lehenga

Bridal LehengaOther than sari, lehenga is the most preferred wedding attire amongst brides. It is quite an elaborate dress and was initially worn in Rajasthani and Gujarati weddings of India. However, with time it has been accepted as the wedding attire by other people of other traditions as well. Thus, bridal lehnga has been completely transformed in look and appeal. The otherwise folk dress of the yore is now seen as the chic hot dress, providing ample space for experimentation.

Wedding lehengas are available in a wide range, varying from traditional lehengas to contemporary lehengas, from designer lehengas to Lehenga cholis. Moreover there is a wide range of colors available to choose from. Though the prime color for any wedding dress is preferred to be red, brides have become quite experimental and opt for distinctive colors like peach, lilac, pink, sky blue, sea green and medium range blues. Therefore, to cater to the needs of ever changing preferences of the customers, Lehengas are now available in a plethora of colors.

In case of evening occasion, you can go for lehngas in deep navy and sapphire blue color with silver accents. For morning function, you can choose from golden and copper colors. Furthermore, choose your bridal lehenga considering your skin color. If you are fair complexioned, avoid pale or pastel colors, as they drab out your beauty. You should try colors like ruby red, bright orange, rust, turquoise and navy blue, which will accentuate your features.

On the other hand, for a Dusky skin, you should wear bright colors. Sunshine yellow, bright orange, red, magenta and bright blue will be just right for you. Besides, lehengas can be found in different fabrics like silk, georgette, crepe, net etc. For a more stylish look, lehengas are tailored in trendy designs like fish cut lehenga, mermaid style, a line, straight cut, etc. These exquisite lehengas are eventually ornamented with kundan, dabka, neemzari, sequins, cutdana, stones and swarowski crystals for that perfect look.
