When it comes to bridal couture, nothing works as beautifully as lehengas. As much as we consider red to be the ultimate bridal colour, summer weddings come with the opportunity to experiment and choose more subtle yet suited hues. Want some inspo on lehengas for the bride? Here’s a roundup...

white bridal lehenga

Summers are all about whites, aren’t they? If you’re a bride who loves her whites, wear a white lehenga sans the dupatta on a simple occasion replete with a messy bun and bright earrings. Simple yet stunning!

floral yellow bridal lehenga

What’s summer without the magic of yellow? Wear a floral yellow lehenga like this Divya Reddy bridal lehenga for your haldi ceremony and you’ll look picture perfect!

two toned bridal lehenga

If you like two-toned bridal lehengas, try something like this—a blouse with bell-sleeves and a silk lehenga by Kotwara. Now that’s elegance personified, isn’t it?

payal singhal voluminous bridal lehenga

Yes, we love our reds and pinks but greys have their own charm. Case in point—this Payal Singhal voluminous bridal lehenga on Diana Penty. Work this outfit with smokey eyes and you’ll be a bride to remember.

pull off black bridal lehenga

Think you’re one of the gutsy brides to pull off black? Go for a fusion ensemble like this one by Payal Singhal—a bridal lehenga with churidaar and a short sexy choli. Don’t forget loads of body glitter!

Make way for something unique and out-of-the-box when it comes to your cocktail. Try a bridal lehenga with a silk shirt and use a glitzy belt to cinch the waist. This Tarun Tahiliani ensemble is a total winner!
