Gone are the days when brides were all ga-ga about opting for conventional dresses and colour choices for their weddings. The modern bride treads the path of individualism with such aplomb, that going daring in their choices of bridal fashion colours is a part and parcel of their unique style.
But hey, aren’t Indian brides all about deep reds, blood reds and maroons?
No, not really. And not the 21st century modern bride, atleast. And we are thanking fashion Gods for this!
It is time to be different and we are loving this adventurous and bold vision of modern Indian bride. Right from mint green to mustard and blush pinks, brides have learnt the art of outshining both in their pre-wedding and wedding functions. While some prefer wearing shades of orange and shocking pink for the sangeet ceremony, others are opting for peppy yellow hues to subtle shades of mustard for their haldi ceremony. And not to forget the mint, herbal or lemon green.
We love the colour riot, but that’s not enough yet. Today, Fashion Lady takes a look at many shades of Indian bridal wear.

Spice up your mehendi in green and purple tones
You don’t have to tie yourself to seasonal and ever-so-traditional red, experimentation is the key during your mehendi. What about getting inspiration from greens and purples of the season for that subtle delicate touch. Make sure your outfits speak of intricate cuts, delicate embellishments and patterns. Colours such as green and purple are highly worn for their bright hues. The Bridal Lehengas can either be an A-line, fish cut or flared, with matched choli. Dark greens and purples also symbolises the rich colour and deep hue of mehendi, hence all the more reasons we wear them for your summer wedding.
Add a dash of colourful, floral richness to your ring ceremony lehenga
A time of rejuvenation and of full blooms- light colours and pastel tones in rich floral flare are the way to go. Ditch the very dark or very bright shades please. The richness of such lehengas lies in the floral design and the rich work of the broad border or full lehenga work. A riot of summer blooms in various colours, florals is one trend that many designers have taken very seriously for summer 2015 bridal fashion. Best worn for a summer evening ring ceremony, this elegant lehenga comes with oodles of net to give you a fairytale look.
Go super unconventional with dark blue and deep purple as the choice of your wedding lehenga colour
Even though many brides out there would safely opt for red-coloured dresses for their wedding, we have recently witnessed a sudden rise of teaming of dark blue and deep purples with red. Double or triple contrasting colours in bridal outfits is something, which is currently in vogue. Darker colours or shades are best in overall look and appearance when paired with heavy fabrics, such as velvets, raw silk and satins.
Make a head turning look at your reception with golden lehenga
Currently, Indian designers are dictating the global fashion on traditional front. By paying homage to revival of infused designs, gold is one colour in bridal fashion that is bringing in a change, showcasing the heritage and cultural aspects of culturally rich India. The patterns in gold zardozi brought out by the current stream of designers, such Tarun Tahiliani and Sabyasachi Mukherjee were attractive and unique, bright and tantalizing yet the prêt-a-porter niche. In gold, we have seen that a lot of modern hemlines being flaunted, designers brought out short kurtas, a range of palazzo pants, gota patti along with metallic sequins and unique thread work ruled the ramps.
