With the New Year, there will be new trends that will take the wedding scene by storm. Here’s looking at lehenga trends that will surely have many brides in 2018 sporting them.
Belt it up
Wear an embellished belt at your waist with the dupatta
tucked under it. This not only has a role in adding style, but also is very practical as it keeps the dupatta
in place and your hands free to move around without having to handle and adjust the dupatta
Acclaimed Telugu and Tamil actress Samantha Akkineni nee Prabhu wore a lehenga
that had her love story told through the embellishments. Designer Kresha Bajaj undertook this beautiful yet mammoth task, and did so for her own wedding before too. This trend could be the next big thing, as it not only makes for a gorgeous wedding day ensemble, but gives it a more meaningful twist.
From sari to lehenga
There are many traditional sari fabrics that have been worn by brides through the centuries. But these fabrics are finding their way into different styles of garments. Traditional weaves like Paithani, Benarasi, Kanjeevarams, Bandhani, etc will be seen in lehengas in the New Year, and they’re sure to look oh-so-pretty!
Bright colours like reds, pinks and greens are taking a backseat while pastel shades like light peach, baby blue, soft pink, etc are in demand. Anushka Sharma made the trend all the more popular and the coming year will see many brides following in her footsteps.
While this is not a new trend, it is one that will never really go out of fashion. Dainty and intricate floral embroidery done all over the lehenga
will be seen on many brides. Actress Amrita Puri exemplifies this in her lehenga
by designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
Normally, you won’t really see colours like grey worn for bridal wear. But they will be making their presence felt in the bridal wear colour palette this coming year. Sagarika Ghatge wore a grey lehenga
with gold embroidery on it for her wedding functions. It looked elegant and classy.
