How do you see yourself live your dream wedding? If you’re the bride-to-be who swears by simplicity and loves diamonds on her fingers but not on her outfit, the modern bridal lehengas are all about you!

Without getting overshadowed by guests, here are 10 real brides who make light look right.

The White Wonder
Bride Trisha looks cool and classy in her Sabyasachi lehenga which is minimalist in its choice of colors and embellishments. Her outfit seems carefully planned to match with the groom’s sherwani, the all-white mandap, and sea-facing location. Everything blends beautifully, even her jewellery and the colors of the garlands.

The Season of Blooms
Eschewing traditional red, Samiksha’s look in a white lehenga with floral motifs in shades of pink is refreshing and youthful. The gold thread accents on the hem of her lehenga and borders of her net dupatta, alongside her classy kundan jewellery add a sparkle to her look.

The Cream of the Crop

The Royal Touch
Going with the traditional red color but completely drifting away from a typical heavy wedding outfit with all-over threadwork and embroidered motifs, bride Punarvi stands apart in her elegantly draped ensemble which has dull gold borders. That way, all the attention is on her striking jewellery which imparts her a regal vibe.

The Lace Lure
Delicate lace, a sheer dupatta, and a ruffled hem make bride Narina’s beige bridal lehenga distinctive. This Tarun Tahiliani creation is a perfect choice with its lightweight feel, dainty embellishments and warm tone which makes other colors stand out in beautiful contrast.

The Sequin Sensation
Bride Saloni’s blush pink lehenga glitters with the twinkle of sequins and interesting spread out motifs. The sheer net dupatta ensures that she is not weighed down at her daytime outdoor wedding in Portugal. The large motifs give the blouse and skirt a beautiful vintage feel, and her kundan jewellery matches the outfit perfectly.

The Angel in White
Bride Komal believes in doing things differently - from her pink chuda set (bridal bangles which are traditionally red and white) to her white and gold lehenga and minimalist jewellery. For brides who want to coordinate their look with their partners, experiment with variations in white which works so wonderfully for Komal and her husband here.
