Whether it’s a blood red lehenga or an ivory saree; one of the first things to switch things up for that special day is the colour!
Since weddings come and go like changing trends a lot of unconventional colours are now available for the modern Indian bride who need not limit bridal outfits to a standard palette.
Here’s some inspiration from top designers in the know of Indian bridal couture.
From deep burgundy to typical mirchi reds, Sabyasachi’s collections usually borrow heavily from antiquated bridal wear. However, his new collections like ‘Whimsical,’ ‘Couture Classics’ and ‘Bohemian’ bridal wear stand out in shades of turquoise, tea pink and all blacks.
Intricately handcrafted bridal ensembles in gold, ivory and lilacs combine traditional wear with glamour. Apart from brocade and handloom outfits some unconventional designs in his label include dresses crusted in silver to luxe feather sarees in mellow hues of yellow and peach.
With printed ensembles in bandhani, handblock motifs and hand embroidery, this label experiments with bridal gowns cut out in light pinks, deep blues and gorgeous drapes in hues of greens, yellows and sky blue.
His latest bridal couture revealed an ethereal collection of gossamer dresses in grey, pale blue, silver and oriental fusion of orange and pink. Chikankari Kalidar bridal lehengas in muted tones of beige, ivory tea rose and a bright aqua perfectly blend in with new age sensibilities.
The label captures inspiration from basic blues to wine and green combinations. Coming a full circle from black blouses, pale vanilla drapes and multicolored bridal skirts; the collection here is contemporary in colour and traditional in its meticulous embroidery like zardosi, tikki and ari.
