It’s 2020 and new fashion trends are making a foray into the wedding season like never before. From new-age lehenga sets, ruffles & feathers to structured trails, the Indian wedding fashion is going to see a dramatic turnover this year. 2020 is going to be an interesting year in terms of unique lehengas, aesthetics and colour schemes. Here’s a list of trends that are going to be really big this wedding season.
1. Tiers and Layers
Old is gold. This trend is making a solid impression this year as Indian brides are picking this for their modern-day weddings. More volume in lehengas is going to be a thing with all the extra frills and tiers.
A lot of designers like Amit Aggarwal and Falguni Shane Peacock are creating prettiest designs of lehengas with some stunning layers and tiers. This season’s layered lehengas are fresh, and full of volume!
2. Intimate/Micro Weddings
A lot more couples are giving the big, fat extravagant Indian weddings a miss. Indian couples have realised with time that their weddings should be more about them and their feelings, and not everyone else. They want to escape the pressure of organising a mega event. This trend is also finding a huge backing from couples who have a smaller budget. Also, those who want more personalised experience in a location away from home. Smaller scale destination weddings in Mexico or India are going to be really big in 2020.
3. Fairy and Feathery Sleeves
The angelic sleeves on Indian lehengas might have felt try-hard in past seasons but now it is all about dramatic flairs and chic sleeves. This trend feels super dreamy and theatrical. Designers like Falguni Shane are trying these exaggerated sleeves to create striking lehenga designs.
4. Let it BLING!
It’s time to become the sparkling diva this wedding season as the bling on lehengas will be the demand of our Indian brides. The glorious lehengas will glow as bright as the bride’s smile. Likes of Tarun Tahiliani and Manish Malhotra are bringing back the sequins and the trend is here to stay in 2020. The bling is sure to give our Indian brides that gem moment that they all seek on their engagement or weddings. SHIMMER ensembles will rule all the way!

5. FLOWERS are here to stay
Flowers are no stranger to Indian brides, but in 2020, this trend will be so ubiquitous that fashion designers would be experimenting more by taking innovative approaches.
The flower trend is not just going to be constricted to the bridal lehengas, there would be more of it in bridal hairstyles, photo-ops, kaleeras, mehendi, and background. Designers are playing with intricate flower embellishments and embroideries in 2020 which is interesting to watch.
6. Statement Blouses will be everything
Eccentric blouse designs with risqué factor are going to stay in vogue all through this year. Glorious necklines, statement sleeves, and backless designs are going to add that much needed oomph to the bridal lehengas. We are all set to see more drama in terms of the ‘haute’ designs Indian brides are going to choose this year.
