You are probably not “the girl who has been dreaming about her wedding ever since she was a little girl” type of girl! You are not made of sugar and spice and all things nice, you’re made of fire and ice and you shatter the stereotype!

 But that does not mean you don't want to dazzle at your own wedding! Now, you may not want to ride in on a motorbike, like a certain young bride to be did at her own wedding in Ahmedabad! But, you certainly want to leave mouths agape, albeit not in the oh so traditional way. You certainly may know what you want but every bride to be could do with some help and we’re here to give you just that!

Contemporary Indian bridal wear is all about clean lines, flattering silhouettes, bold vibrant colors and understated elegance. That means bidding goodbye to embellishments that weigh you down and wearing outfits that are chic, comfortable and a mix of traditional and modern. Here are a few contemporary Lehenga options in various colors and designs that are sure to make the cut for you-

1.    Blue over maroon!


Indian brides are not only about maroons and deep reds any more. Enter Royal Blue! The color exudes sophistication in every way and gives a chic look to the bride. Ideal for mehendi/sangeet or even the altar if you’re feeling adventurous! Go for the panelled look lehenga with heavy zardosi and pearl work. A long choli and  an elegant choker and matching earrings would be ideal for this outfit.

 2. Pretty in Peach:


The color Peach evokes warmth and sensuality. Don a gorgeous Peach straight cut Lehenga and drive your partner to be into a tizzy! Choose georgette or satin fabric with golden colored rich zari embroidery all over. Keep the choli short with elbow length or cap sleeves. Chandelier earrings and a delicate neckpiece would go well with this attire.

3. Jacket over Lehenga:


This style is very fresh and is a rage  in the world of weddings these days. The lehengas are kept flary and simple with a long jacket covered in zardozi embroidery. The jacket gets all the attention these often have broad laces or heavy work on them. This ensemble is perfect for your wedding reception.

4. The alluring mermaid:


If you have that perfect hourglass figure, then, there is no better way to flaunt it than in a fishtail/mermaid style lehenga. Offbeat colors and a short halter neck choli would complement this style of lehenga well. This look is perfect for that sangeet or even your reception.
