Long Trail Lehenga

Call it a western influence or merely innovation but long trail lehengas are becoming very popular among brides due to their regal appeal. You’d surely feel like a royal princess with a bit of western twist on your wedding day with one of these looks.

Off The Shoulder Choli

Now this one is a fairly new trend and perhaps a modern take on traditional lehenga choli. Lehenga choli has evolved into a rather ethnic version of skirt and blouse. Now the blouse features an off shoulder cut, just like those we see in bridal gowns worn in the west. Depending on the kind of work that embellishes the lehenga choli this type of cut looks rather suitable if worn to an after wedding party or even to a sangeet because they are playful and easy to carry.

Florals are in this year as inspired by designers shyamal & bhumika whether it’s a plain floral print or heavily sequined this is one look you that would make you look stunning just like bollywood beauty Anushaka Sharma did on her wedding day with a gorgeous floral lehenga choli.

Shimmer Everywhere

Yaas! Although everything that glitters is not gold these designer lehengas and bridal lehengas surely are. Meticulously put together handwork Swarovski crystals, zardosi and dabka gem stones that shines like the brightest star when light shines upon it, these lehengas are a perfect fit for the bride! We love these beauts by Elan designer bridal.
