Red lehengas have been a norm at Indian weddings for many years but modern brides have strayed away from tradition in favour of a more fashion-forward look when it comes to lehengas. From A-line to printed lehenga skirt styles, brides are showcasing their individuality and creativity through their outfits. After all, it is your wedding day so it’s important that you look and feel like a million dollars.
Picking the perfect lehenga skirt is key to nailing your bridal look but the number of styles to choose from can get overwhelming. Here’s a list of the top 8 lehenga skirt styles you need to keep in mind when choosing your outfit for your big day!

Let’s begin the list with a classic A-line lehenga skirt that has dominated the bridal fashion scene for many years. As the name suggests, this skirt resembles an A as it flares from the hem at the hip. Many brides opt for an A-line skirt for its versatile look that can be dressed up or dressed down to match your personal style.

Banarasi print is usually associated with traditional attire but if you want to merge the old with the new, you can incorporate it in your lehenga skirt as well. The Banarasi lehenga usually comes in a classic gold print that gives the lehenga skirt a royal and enchanting look. But what makes this style a favourite among many brides is its ability to suit all body types while providing the opulence and grandeur that is unmatched by other lehenga skirts.

If you are looking for a skirt to show off the patterns and motifs on your skirt, you can’t go wrong with a panelled skirt. This lehenga skirt features an intricate stitching pattern along the hem of the skirt that creates different panels along with the skirt and a wide base. This lehenga skirt is popular among many brides as it provides that ball-gown effect.

If you want to add that volume and flair to your bridal lehenga skirt, do it right with a Cancan lehenga. Cancan is layers of mesh attached under your skirt to give your lehenga skirt a princess bridal look. You can add multiple layers of Cancan until you get the desired amount of volume in your skirt. This can be done with hard mesh-like material or a soft-net material. We recommend you go with a soft net Cancan so that you are as comfortable as possible in your lehenga.

When it comes to your bridal lehenga it’s all about achieving the perfect amount of flair and volume to get that perfect look. One way to do this is with a Cancan, that comes under the lehenga, but you can also opt for a multi-layered lehenga.
