Sky Blue Lehenga
Another one of Arpita Mehta's richest creations, this light blue lehenga can captivate any onlooker. What makes it really stand out is the intricate embroidery in contrasting colours and the embellishments accentuate their effect.
Blue and pink have always been the princess combinations and Disney has made sure Elsa and Sleeping Beauty don't let us forget the regality of these colours. And this lehenga makes sure that the princess in you is cherished and caressed.
A light can-can lehenga in this design is perfect for any bride who wants to cast a spell. Blouse designs to go with it can be a personal preference for each bride.
Styling it just right: While you select blouse neck designs, keep in mind the design and colours of your bridal jewellery set. In order to flaunt a choker set, you can go with a plain round neck blouse. For anything longer than that length, go a deep-U neck.
Pro Tip: Don two bridal dupattas - one in complementing the colour and one in contrast.
Suitable for: Wedding
Aqua Blue Lehenga
Anita Dongre creations bring to life some long-lost designs and techniques. The highlight of this otherwise sober blue silk lehenga is its handcrafted pink embroidery done all over in small sections.
The pink does not overpower the aqua in the skirt but gives it a charm of pink-blue contrast. You can avoid the can-can layers to make it fall free and give the flowy look.
Styling it just right: The pop of colour is amply balanced by the ivory bouse. And the Dupatta in a pastel peach just adds the icing to the cake.
Pro-tip: The lace at the hem of the lehenga gives it a polished look. You can also opt for this idea instead of a heavy border at the bottom.
Suitable for: Any daytime event, be it Mehndi, Haldi or Sangeet.
Have a burst of colours at your daytime wedding with this aquamarine lehenga. Filled with all-over design in Gota Patti, it is the blue and gold contrast that takes our breath away.
Paired with a golden blouse, this lehenga-choli combination is one of the freshest in town. The leafy embroidery and the simple net dupatta that accompanies the piece enhances the look to make it all the more elegant.
Styling it just right: You already have golden in your attire, what other colour do you need to jazz your lehenga just right! Make both of your Dupattas follow the same colour palette as your lehenga and you're good to go.
Pro-tip: Since this lehenga is a little Hatke, your bridal jewellery should be too. Don a Satalada necklace and look royal, just as this real bride does.
Suitable for: Daytime wedding
Ombre Blue Lehenga
The ombre effect of this blue lehenga makes quite a striking resemblance to the pictures of the Gulf of Alaska, for which it is said that the two oceans meet but don't mix. The combination of Turkish blue, teal and sea green definitely make it a winning fusion. Did you ever imagine mirror-work to look like a starry sky? That's the magic this blue lehenga carries.
Styling it just right: The boat-neck blouse does not leave any need for wearing a necklace. And since it is full of mirror work, you already have enough bling and can go easy on the overall jewellery department.
Pro-tip: Even though you're keeping jewellery low-key, flaunt a pretty wedding hairstyle to match the elegance of your attire.
Suitable for: Mehndi and Sangeet
Turkish Blue Lehenga

This raw silk marvel is an absolute stunner in terms of the design. You can go light on can-can since its rich colour already makes it look heavy. It's intelligent design, using huge motifs at the bottom of the skirt and keeping it minimal near the waist.
The intricate work on the blouse gives it a heavy look, but the fabric used is light and you will find your perfect summer wedding outfit in this piece. Flaunt it with minimal jewellery and gorgeous makeup.
Styling it just right: All the bling and blend go into the blouse design by turning it into an exquisite piece of Gota Patti art.
Pro Tip: Carry a single Dupatta as this bride did. One in ombre like hers would be just perfect.
Suitable for: Mehndi
