To sort your life, we are here to suggest a few designs of the splendid, gorgeous and elegant bridal lehengas that could be your last and ultimate purchase as a part of the bridal shopping.
Be it post-wedding parties or the festivals, you are bound to look hot and sassy in some of these outfit ideas. A few options are extremely traditional and ethnic, apt for your first Karwa Chauth dressing. Take a look at 5 best bridal lehengas for all you February brides:
1. Gaurang Shah’s ethnic bride:
The top one on our ‘highly recommended list’, Shah’s designs are ethnic as they celebrate India’s finest handlooms in style. Designer and textile maestro Gaurang Shah is so popular when it comes to Indian weddings – his handloom textiles are masterpieces. Check out this latest collection by the name of ‘Vrindavan’ which features rich traditional fabrics from all across India such as Kanjeevaram, and Banarasi brocade. For to-be-brides who are in love with ornate ghagra (with Indian motifs such as paisleys) in minimalist theme, you are so going to love the look. We recommend you also go for an Anarkali suit and saree from the same collection for all the post-wedding parties!
2. Payal Khandelwal’s bold and bohemian bride:
Payal Khandwala’s stylishly quirky collection featured at the latest fashion week has been made from the Benarsi fabrics. There is a modern twist to the contemporary edgy fashion styling. For those to-be-brides who are in love with the bohemian madness of life, here are a few traditional flowing lehengas for you. The color palette ranging from ornate jewel tones of emerald green, royal purple, dull red, bronze, to gold, this collection is all about Frieda inspired deep hues with loads of layering in the form of warm blazers, capes, and ponchos. Take a pick from this collection to sport an edgier vibe around or on your wedding day.
3. Manish Malhotra’s floral bride:
This February, break the stereotypical romantic representation of color and shades such as pinks, and reds. Opt for velvet ensemble in dark green, black or midnight blue. Team up the lehenga skirt with a sexy blouse with applique embroidery. Basically, draw your inspiration from ace designer Manish Malhotra’s ‘XTech’ collection. If you want to stick to the typical bridal colors such as reds and brighter ones for the D-day, then opt for an outfit or 2 perfect for sangeet, cocktails and mehendi function from this collection. Besides, February isn’t as cold, so you can also do-away with velvets and instead go for net and chiffon fabrics paired with signature embroidery, big florals, glittery sequins, which also forms the major chunk of this collection.
4. Shantanu and Nikhil’s Spain inspired bride:
Look mesmerizing in a black mermaid-style gown with slit sleeves and stunning embellishments on the Sangeet night. Or you could look daring and demure in a Spanish gown with a cape at your own reception party. Basically, the idea is to look glamorous and hot in fabrics like velvet, and silk. Such rich fabrics will also keep you warm on a pleasant February evening. So, go ahead if you want to experiment a little.
5. Architha Narayanan’s romantic bride:
February is the Valentine month. So to be romantic and send out similar vibes is just obvious. The upcoming designer- Architha Narayanan’s collection of bare-shoulder cholis, maxis in silk and splendid cropped jackets full of embroidery are a classic proof of how east can meet west in style. For a destination wedding (say a beach one), this is the apt collection to sport!
