No matter how much the Indian women love wearing western outfits, the traditional ones are still preferred when it comes to their bridal attire. That is the reason; lehengas have always been and still are one of the hottest choices of most Indian brides. However, if we take a look at the colour choices that our gorgeous brides make these days for their wedding lehenga, they are not restricted to the conventional red, pink or maroon, anymore. Rather, they are seen making some really experimental, unconventional and exciting choices.
So, for all the soon-to-be brides of this wedding season, it is time to think beyond the age-old colour palette of the bridal wear as we bring to you some of the hot and trendy colours of this wedding season.
Let us begin with something which is quite close to the family of traditional colours, like red, hot pink, maroon, etc. So, look vibrant on your wedding day in the tasty tangerine colour. While nothing beats the combination of gold and tangerine, you can add a twist to this combo by using the colour of a toasted almond instead of gold. You can take inspiration from Priyanka Chopra (right), who walked the ramp in Manish Malhotra ensemble. The lehenga has beautiful work in dull gold, and the subtle dupatta is just balancing the entire outfit perfectly well.

Blue hints upon a facet of your personality that is confident and reliable. So, show your panache on your wedding day in a royal blue lehenga. You can also try some exciting colours like gold, maroon and beige with this colour to create a truly classic combination. What’s more? You can even ask your man to be dressed in the same colour as this evergreen colour is a hit for men as well.
This is a soothing colour yet another tasteful option for all those brides, who like to keep their wedding look subtle. And, all those brides who are not sure of donning this subtle colour on their wedding day, here is the solution. You can team it up with right amount of bling or other dark shades, like black, orange, red, etc.
Lucite green might not be everyone’s favourite, but it sure makes way to the ramp time and again. And, if you will look at some of the beautiful creations in this colour, you will definitely be tempted to pick a lehenga in this colour. Besides, this is a cool pick if your wedding is slated during summers or even monsoons. It certainly will leave a refreshing minty ‘after taste’!
From the family of red, Marsala is another bold colour for your wedding lehenga. Glamorous, rich, tasteful and earthy– this is what it stands for. And, as the colour itself is sufficient to create a style statement, you can go minimal in terms of the embellishments and embroidery work. So, just try a lehenga in the graceful fabrics like satin or velvet, and let this glamorous colour do the talking. You can even team it up with other favourites of the season like, glacier grey and classic blue.
While many women might not consider grey to be a very good option for wedding wear, you can wear the icy version of this colour for any other function. To add a flavour of festivities and celebrations, you can team it up with bright colours, like yellow, blue, etc. These colours will provide a striking contrast and will definitely make some heads turn owing to your unconventional choice of colour!
A lehenga in this colour will make you look no less than a style goddess. Aquamarine is like a breath of fresh air and has a calming effect. Needless to say, the ethereal aura that you will create in an aquamarine ensemble will surely leave everyone spellbound. Although you can club it with any bright colour, but a completely aquamarine lehenga made of any sheer fabric will be the best thing to set your style statement.
Strawberry ice is a versatile colour and is far from the loud pink spectrum. So, if you love pink but want to go subtle, then this is the best option you have this wedding season. This cool colour hinges between classy and refreshing, and radiates a certain charm that no one can escape. And, if you do not want to go all pink, then you can wear this colour with subtle grey or cool blue.

For all our cool brides, scuba blue is just perfect for all of you to show your bubbly and chirpy side. This refreshing colour can simply set the party mood.
