The lehenga saree bridal outfit has become a new style statement indeed. A trendsetter for bridal wear, most of the brides are opting to wear the traditional red and gold colours while some are going a bit out of the way and try out different colours. You can also find many shades of peach, pink and maroon making waves this wedding season with not just the lehenga saree bridal outfits but also with the wedding sarees.
The lehenga saree bridal outfit works because many brides prefer lightweight bridal outfits but don’t want to compromise on the heavy embroidery, zardozi work or appliques and ornamental needlework.
Here are some of our favourite picks for lehenga saree bridal outfits:
1. Traditional Red and Gold Lehenga Saree

No matter what, but the traditional red and gold combination wins over all the other colours when it comes to a bridal outfit. That’s probably because red is the warmest colour and gold adds the dash of royalty to the attire.
In the Hindu religion, red is related to Sindoor, red bindi, Tilak and prosperity. But it is chosen by most of the brides as it looks good on any complexion. Though brides traditionally wear Ghagra saree for the wedding, wearing a fancy lehenga saree bridal outfit is the new trend nowadays.
2. Make a Statement
If you are planning to wear a lehenga in any colour other than red, then make sure that everything you choose to wear and glam-up complements your lehenga saree colour. If you want to look like a million bucks, the key is to make a statement without going overboard.
You can play with your jewellery and choose one of the pieces like a statement piece that’s most flashy or royal among the others. Usually, brides choose the jewellery set after finalising their lehenga saree bridal wear, so it becomes easy to choose the statement piece, which is visible to everyone. It can be a necklace, a waistband or even the kalire, or you can pick a designer lehenga to do all the talking.

If you are a bride who does not like to go with the flow, then wearing a lehenga, a saree, a lehenga saree bridal wear in an unconventional colour can make you stand out. You can go for a verity of lehenga designs in colours like olive green, bottle green, white or navy blue.
If you choose to wear green, pair it up with light colours like peach, light blue or lemon. If you are going for white, make sure to add a hint of some other colour to break the monotony of the look. You can add pink embroidery, have a dupatta in a different yet lighter shade or get it customised by putting gold appliques over the lehenga and dupatta.
Blue is a royal colour that suits almost all the skin complexions and a navy blue lehenga saree bridal outfit in velvet looks fabulous with a gold zardozi work dupatta, to which, you can add golden sandals and a golden clutch and complete the look.
