Anything But RED – Alternative Colour Choices For A Bride’s Wedding Lehenga
We have all grown up seeing the brides look breath-taking, dressed up in an extravagant red lehenga for their weddings. Often a mother passes her own wedding attire to the daughter as a token of love and blessings. Red, in Hindu tradition, has stood for love, passion and fertility. Thus, brides have been traditionally dressed in red for the beginning of a new phase in their lives. But recently modern brides have been opting for other colours as well for their wedding lehengas. In the quest of avoiding the ordinary, brides have been selecting unique colours for their wedding attires from pastels to black. Even the top Indian designers have come up with extensive collections that have wedding lehengas in different colours. Here we mention a range of colours that the brides can opt for their wedding attire.
The white colour stands for faith and purity. Pure is the sanctity of the bond that is marriage and faith is something the partners lend to each other when they start their journey together. Hence, selecting a white bridal lehenga will not only make a statement but also denote something meaningful when the couples tie the sacred knot.
The market has flooded up with pastel pink lehengas since Anushka Sharma revealed her wedding pictures in a powder-pink Sabyasachi lehenga. Pastel lehenga is the perfect option for the brides who want to experiment but also do not want to go extreme in their choices. Instead of pink, the couples can coordinate in pastel blues, minty greens and soft purples for their wedding.
Kareena Kapoor Khan stepped out in a 25-year-old yellow lehenga by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla, when her character Kalindi got married in ‘Veere di Wedding’ and since then, like all the other Kareena characters, she has given us some major wedding outfit goals. Also, since everything vintage is “the trend” right now, that yellow lehenga can serve as the perfect inspiration for the brides to try yellow attire for their weddings this season.
In some Rajasthani cultures, ‘panch-rangi’ wedding attire i.e. outfit with an amalgamation of five colours is considered auspicious. This can serve as the perfect inspiration for brides looking to add more colours to their wedding outfits. An outfit that highlights one base colour and then uses various other colours in harmony with elements like the dupatta or the blouse can serve as the perfect wedding outfit for the bride.
