Bridal Lehenga Trends for 2017

The lehenga is more than just a garment. It has assumed the status of a grand statement in a bride’s trousseau, so much so that a lehenga signifies a bride’s persona. It is not surprising, thus, to find the lehenga reinvent itself in different shades, styles, using a multitude of fabric and employing specialised skills that speak volumes about it's inventor.

When it comes to the lehenga, there is no looking back! You can only think forward and redo and refurbish this gorgeous garment to bring your A-game. So if you are looking to design your own lehenga, or redo an older one, here are some foolproof lehenga trends that are here to stay in 2017!

1. Lehenga Gown

The lehenga gown is a versatile garment for brides who can’t decide whether they want to don the classic gown  or the modern lehenga on their wedding day! Go for subtle colours, like white or ivory to make a statement.

2. Lehenga with Gold and Silver Embroidery


While this may sound eccentric, it works wonderfully with the right colours.We suggest trying fine embroidery on lighter shades of pink and blue for a classy look. or, go for a sea of gold and silver like this outfit by Abu Jani.

7. White Dupatta

A heavy dupatta is the best cure for a dull lehenga. One with heavy silver embroidery paired with a blouse in raw silk? Bliss.

Pastels and silver embroidery were a match made in heaven. Experiment as you might, but be careful as pastels might dull you down at night!

11. Dull Gold and Striking Maroon


A dull dusted gold lehenga contrasted with a striking maroon dupatta is an eye turner. Opt for a simpler choli and a heavy dupatta with dull zari embroidery.
