2. Majestic in red
Nobody understands bridal sentiments better than Sabyasachi. It’s a red silk lehenga with floral embroidery work all over – a combination that never fails to amaze.
3. That perfect pink bridal glow
There is nothing unique about red lehenga and choli with thorough gold embellishments, right? But give this combination to a maestro like Manish Malholtra and he will give you the twist of a soft pink dupatta to give you that perfect bridal glow.
4. Dazzling in gold booti work
When it’s Sabyasachi, you can’t expect anything less than indisputably gorgeous. Gold booti work, flattering neckline, double dupatta and oozing elegance – perfect, isn’t it?
5. Reshmi dulhan
Everything looks better in resham work. With a contrasting blue choli, red raw silk lehenga and intricate resham embroidery the bride looks like the perfect dulhan.

6. For the contemporary bride
Here’s another jewel from Sabyasachi’s collection. Its red velvet lehenga with statement floral work and deep neck embroidered choli is gorgeous as it is, but the soft mauve net dupatta steals the show, hands down.
7. Red and gold never gets old
Red and gold is such a stunning combination that it never fails to flatter an Indian bride. Take this piece for example. It’s pretty, it’s royal and it’s the perfect embodiment of the desi in this bride.
8. Double layered dupatta is the way to go
Such a cute moment and such a pretty lehenga! Red has always been the bride’s favourite but there is something about this piece that feels perfect. Is it the soft green dupatta with contrasting blue and pink double border? I think it is.
9. Fusion it up
If you are looking for a bridal look that says ‘elegance personified’, then this is the look you would want. With closed neck, full sleeve choli and peach dupatta this is the way to be a fusion bride.
10. Picture perfect
The all red look never disappoints though. In a time when brides like to experiment with contrasting colour, even when they choose red to be the colour of the day, this bride shows how going all matching could score a perfect 10 on 10 when done right. Her subtle makeup, kundan jewellery, beautiful elaborate floral embroidery on the lehenga and gold booti for the choli gives us all kinds of bridal fashion goals.
No wonder red will always be the most favourite colour for the bridal trousseau. Apart from the fact that red is the colour of love and passion, wearing reds in an Indian wedding is also synonymous to wealth, opulence and youthfulness. Now who would say no to that?
