5 Wedding Gowns to Ditch your Lehenga For this Wedding Season | India Modern Festive

Wednesday 25 January 2017

Hey everyone!

The wedding season is in full swing and with so many celebrities getting married lately, new fashion trends are coming up for inspiration for the the to-be brides.

While last year it was all about lehenga sarees and jacket-style lehengas that were ruling the ramps as well as the silver screen, this season – a trend that has  stood out in the Indian wedding fashion is of Ethnic Wedding Gowns.

Wedding gowns have been quite popular in the Western culture, but their Indian-ised version or I should say the ethnic gowns are now being accepted in the Indian culture as well.

So much so that many Indian brides are ditching the heavy-duty lehengas for trendy yet ethnic wedding gowns for their special day. As it’s no more only about looking their best but also being comfortable on the D-day so that they can enjoy all the festivities with ease.

Recently, two popular brides - Sherry Shroff and Kishwer Merchant were seen in strikingly similar wedding gowns by Gaurav Gupta in different colors.

If you also want to try a different look on your wedding, then you should pick an ethnic gown that is similar in work to a traditional lehenga (featuring intricate work in zari, Swarovski etc. and in bright colors like red, fuchsia, peach etc.) but has a modern twist in its silhouette- just like this pink gown from Craftsvilla - that's both glamorous and easy-to-style.

If you are looking for more inspiration, then check out these beautiful designs by Sabyasachi and Manish Malhotra - that are absolutely elegance-personified.

The peach colored ethnic gown by Sabyasachi features his trademark work with a jacket detailing that gives it a fusion twist - and is perfect for a day wedding.

For a night wedding and for a glam look, a wedding gown like this red one from Manish Malhotra is a perfect work with its A-line silhouette and intricate work. You can also go for a more conservative neckline that works best for your body type.

A contemporary silhouette, flattering fit and unique design blended with intricate work makes a wedding gown a perfect choice for the modern brides who don't want to go the conventional route and want to be the trendsetters.

While I have picked my 5 favorite picks from the wedding gowns I have seen recently, you can look for more options on Pinterest or browse through the endless options available at online shopping websites like Craftsvilla.

What's your take on the ethnic wedding gown trend? Do you also think more brides would be opting these trendy gowns instead of lehengas in the coming wedding season?
