Over the past few years, gowns have grown to be a favourite outfit for brides at functions including cocktail, sangeet and even reception. In fact, some brides have even chosen to wear this trending outfit at their wedding ceremonies. These long elegant formal wear dresses have gone beyond the typical gown one would spot in the malls a few years back. They have been twisted, given a draped silhouette and modified to meet the Indian taste and that too so well.
While most brides decide to don this trend for their engagement, cocktail and reception, there are some brides who decide to give lehengas a run for its money while wearing a gown! With almost a royal and elegant touch to gowns, it is not only comfortable but stunningly stylish. With many Indian designers too pioneering this style, there are many ways you too can try out a gown at your wedding!
