A trendsetter bride is the one who dares to choose a colour beyond the conventional reds and maroons. If you are looking for a colour that will compliment your Indian skin tone, Gold is the way to go!
Don’t worry, gold lehengas do not necessarily have to be all glittery; you can choose from the wide options of muted gold hues with light or heavy embellishments. Pick whatever suits your style best!
Here we have a list of 10 designer gold lehengas–heavy, floral, embroidered and monochrome to help you pick the best one for your wedding day.
Muted Gold lehenga with zardozi and floral motifs
We aren’t getting over this look anytime soon! Millennial brides will love this Shyamal & Bhumika lehenga with traditional embroidery and elaborate beading all over. Be it the colourful silk threads, Mughal florals or the one-shoulder puff sleeve blouse, we loved it all.
Re-create this look for your wedding day by picking a lehenga similar to this one. Get yourself a one-shoulder sleeve blouse and pair it with your elaborate wedding jewellery. You can also carry a second heavy bridal dupatta!

Not a fan of the super-glittery gold lehengas? Pick a one like this in Champagne gold with a heavily embroidered lehenga skirt, a spaghetti strap blouse, and an embellished net dupatta. Take cues from Telegu actress, Pragya Jaiswal who chose to wear this Jayanti Reddy creation with diamond jewellery and loose curls.
If you choose to wear a lehenga similar to this one on your D-day, carry it with minimal makeup and a dramatic hairdo.

Scalloped hem lehengas might be a clear winner, but if you are someone who loves to go with unconventional pieces, pick yourself a lehenga with gathered hems like this one. This ivory and gold stunner from Abhinav Mishra’s collection can be a great go-to for your Spring wedding.

While we are still on the topic of cuts and hemlines, Kareena Kapoor Khan’s showstopper looks for designer Falguni & Shane Peacock is proof as to how a classic A-line lehenga can flatter your body shape beautifully. Be it the matching gold full-sleeve blouse, the plunging neckline, or the glittering dupatta with feathers, everything is perfect for a modern-day bride!

A Middle-east inspired embroidered lehenga like the one from designer Manish Malhotra’s collection is for the 21st-century glamorous bride. The 3D embellishments and Swarovski crystals with heavy embroidery all over make for a great pick.
We suggest you pick a net blouse, or a one-arm harem sleeve blouse like one in the picture. Sheer is definitely in this season; you can go ahead with a blouse that has minimal embroidery and looks appealing.
Contemporary heritage lehenga with nature-inspired motifs
If you want to add a traditional touch to your bridal gold lehenga, take inspiration from this Sulakshna Monga art-inspired masterpiece. A lehenga like this which has a cultural reference is a head-turner for sure.
If you are someone who loves the amalgamation of heritage and contemporary style, an ensemble like this one will be a great addition to your bridal trousseau. Add a pop of colour by picking out emerald jewellery for your D-day!
Monochrome gold lehenga with deep neckline blouse
Pick an unconventional gold monochrome lehenga for your wedding theme. We loved this Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla heavy embellished lehenga that definitely made Alia Bhatt stand out. A sheer dupatta with minimal work balanced the look really well.
Since the skirt and choli are maxed out, you can keep the makeup subtle. Nude makeup is preferred by a lot of brides these days. You can pick out a regal set of jewellery to compliment the vibe of an outfit like this.
Panelled sequin gold lehenga

Another great monochrome gold lehenga is this one by Kresha Bajaj. Show off your toned midriff and gorgeous collarbones in an outfit like this. We love the matching dupatta and the blouse that just add to the glamour.
As we said, golds complement the Indian skin really well. Go for a similar sequin lehenga with a sweetheart neckline blouse in the same pattern.
Shimmery gold zardozi lehenga
