Summer weddings in India can be a tricky affair. With most wedding venues making the best use of a sunny day for mehndi, haldi, or even sangeet, picking an outfit can be tiresome. These chiffon lehenga designs will keep you comfortable while keeping the glamour quotient in check.
Breaking away from the usual bulky fabrics, chiffon and organza lehengas are one of the most favoured choices for summer weddings. Known for its innate flowy silhouette instead of a structured one, a chiffon lehenga can give you a winner outfit, whether you are the bride or the bridesmaid.
Dark florals FTW!
We can never make do without florals, can we? Bringing floral in wedding outfits is a great idea. Especially during a day event where there will be a lot of sunshine. An all-over printed chiffon lehenga is ideal for summer weddings.
Style tip: Pick a stylish blouse! Take cues from this Arpita Mehta's chiffon lehenga with a bralette blouse. You can also style your lehenga with a matching cape. Pick a pair of gold hoops and a high ponytail to finish the look.

Thinking about what to wear to your BFF’s sangeet? Pick a red, all over printed lehenga like this one for a winner style statement. While evening gowns, sarees, and dresses are still one of the most preferred styles for a sangeet night, go for a printed lehenga in a bright shade to set yourself apart from the crowd.
Style tip: You can pick an enamel pastel choker to go with the lehenga, or a pearl and Kundan one, get yourself a breezy up-do and let your confidence do the talking.
