Indian Bridal Lehengas I would Love to Wear

by Mehak Shahani on April 27, 2012

in Bridal Blog, Bridal fashion

For those of you following me on pinterest, this post might feel like Deja Vu , because its essentially a repeat of my bridal board there. But since most of you are not on pinterest, i feel like i NEED to post these photos on here. These are Indian Bridal Lehenga photos that i have been LOVING all over pinterest!! I would love to wear these (they are way beyond budget though) , they even make me wish i could give back my outfits and go shopping all over again  and maybe they give you ideas to show to your “Boutique Vali” :p

PS: if you are an NRI and want to hire my bridal shopping services to find the trousseau of your dreams please go here to know more about them: http://www.bridesbypb.com/

 

Im obsessed with those colors- sky blue and mustard!! I love the neckline , and i love the back.. Its actually a creation by a Pakistani Designer , but i just love how those colors work with each other! Obsessed! But much too expensive for me im sure

Another creation by those talented Paki designers…Would love to wear that lehenga for my Sangeet !! Sigh!!! My outfit looks so light and dull in comparison to this :( Me need more money to spend on pretty clothes!!!

I have no idea what the whole lehenga looks like, but i saw this photograph and i absolutely adored the detail in it! I love the little frill at the hem!

All three outfits (peach lehenga in first pic) and the bottom two are designed by ECRU (Ankur Batra) who is the most sought after coutourier in Delhi. If you are wondering why you havent heard his name its because you cant just buy an ECRU , you earn an ECRU. Im serious, he is extremely picky about the brides he works with, he can straight out refuse to work for you and getting an appointment is next to impossible. I didnt even try because the prices are pretty impossible too .

I love how that lehenga skirt just blooms out from under the dupatta and the colors are SO SO pretty!Gorgeous!!!

Im partial to Peach and to Suneet Verma and the picture above combines both of those!

Those are actually the colors of my lehenga- indigo blue and red and cream!!!! <3

The Layers. Ooff!.

Thats an Anand Kabra White Lehenga with gold work. I love how simple yet stunning it is. So pure, but my family woul freak if i wore white on the wedding. Actually theyr already freaking that im wearing grey.

Ritu Kumar Bridal Lehenga- if you are having a MEGA wedding and need to look like a very heavily adorned princess, this would be perfect.

Which one is your favourite??????

i m quite an anti red when it comes to the bridal wear…i feel its a very common thing to wear a full red lehenga on your wedding,however i like what your lehenga’s color combination is.peach color is bound to look good on brides….i see a number of peach colored lehengas posted by u… :) :)

Reply

mehak April 27, 2012 at 11:05 pm

Yup me too…i used to say…im NOT wearing a red lehenga but then i fell in love with it when i saw it..

That peach ECRU lahenga is stunning, I wish I can Own one of his although I know It would never happen.. :0

Reply

mehak April 27, 2012 at 11:22 pm

Ya ecru is like ultimate fantasy lehenga designer for me specially bcause each piece is custom made. But the prices are outrageous and he is SOOOO choosy about which bride he chooses to work with….you need some contact to get through to him..

tannima April 27, 2012 at 11:31 pm

yeah even the white suit is amazing… contacts even the prices are quite outrageous…

I look at these and the first thing that comes to my mind is – ‘gosh, these must be very heavy to float around during the wedding day/reception.’ But yeah, besides that they are very very pretty !

Reply

mehak April 28, 2012 at 10:20 am

Yes i think as an indian bride you need to get use dto the idea of being added 10 kilos to your own weight

Vanity April 28, 2012 at 1:08 am

Hey, diverting from the topic a bit, Do you or anyone knows any good Bridal mehendi person in delhi??? Its one of the things you cnt leave to chances :( want the original mehendi color , the one that lasts for dayss and is without any chemical.

Reply

mehak May 6, 2012 at 2:11 pm

Hey im not very sure…but iv heard about raju mehendi wala in GK-1 amd the girls who sit near hanuman mandir

Reply

Vanu May 6, 2012 at 2:59 pm

Hey Roli!
i dont knw where u live in Delhi but all major markets have professional mehndi valas and u can book dem der only. Also, u can bargain wid dem. some of d markets : Rajori Garden, Kamla Nagar, Gk-2 & Hanuman Mandir as Mehak mentioned. Infact Hanuman Mandir have some mindblowing mehndi valas.

Dont forget to apply sugar n lemon juice after ur mehndi dries. Also, u can heat up some Cloves (5-6) on roti tawas and let ur mehndi soak dat aroma n smoke of Cloves….

Hope dat helps.

Roli Gaur May 7, 2012 at 3:39 pm

RJ May 30, 2012 at 12:58 pm

beautiful designs :) and such an amazingly helpful blog Mehak!
I stumbled upon it while googling obsessively for lehengas for my wedding this October. Would love to wear anything on this post but then again all the designer wear is too expensive for me :(
Was wondering if anyone knows of a boutique that can custom-make lehengas, blouses, etal based on a pic.. and ofcourse without burning a hole in my pocket.. :D
would love some advice!

Reply

mehak May 30, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Hi RJ,
Have you read my ‘ where to buy bridal lehengas in delhi ‘ post?
I also know a REALLY good person who can make yr bridal lehenga from pictures- she’s my personal favourite boutique person…not very cheap but definitely not hole burning!

Reply

RJ June 1, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Reading your post now! WOW that is going to be a list to swear by as I kickstart my shopping ritual :)
And I would love to know your boutique recommendation too.. if you don’t mind.. did you also get something in your trousseau done from there? how much time did it take for you to get done with your shopping? I am kinda freaking out.. too much to do.. too little time.. and the summer heat is choking my plans..

Reply

Roli Gaur June 1, 2012 at 2:41 pm

@Mehak and RJ, and any other soon-bride-to-be

Need advice!! what do you need to buy in the ‘trousseau’ apart from the main function cloths and stuff.? Saree’s and suits are essential but how many ?! and wat else?? soo confused…

Reply

mehak June 1, 2012 at 4:06 pm

Yeah sarees , suits..
it really depends..some peple give 7, some give 11, some give 31…
You can take anything really-sarees, suits, shawls, light lehengas/outfits, indo western kurtis..anything you would want to wearad you like..

Would you have any recommendations for hair and make up in bombay? If so, please let me know.
