Gorgeous Bridal Hue Alternatives so you can move on from the conventional Red
We saw some of the best combinations of lehengas in the past wedding season. The pastel colors, ethnic designs and the way of styling made us fall in love with every outfit. So here we are, approaching the wedding season, with the wide variety of shades in the wedding lehengas and suggesting you some of the best ones to experiment with.
1. Ivory – Elegant and Modern
Let’s start with the most graceful pick of them all, Ivory is trending big time and replacing a lot of red on red bridal outfits.
Sonam Kapoor in an Ivory and Gold hand embroidered Chikankari lehenga by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla for her mehendi ceremony was one of the few bollywood beauties who carried this color with grace. Masoom Minawala who wore an unconventional Anamika Khanna lehenga for her wedding day and broke the stereotype and as well as the internet with this royal hue.
When it made it’s way into weddings, Ivory was considered a bit controversial color. But, not only is it beautiful, it is phenomenally versatile and can be coordinated with a variety of other colors as well.
Of course there are choices to go monotone. In fact, a combination of Ivory and Gold will also look gorgeous.
This way, your Ivory can work out as a great blank canvas, which can be a playground for you to customize and personalize with colorful embroidery in Gold, Pink, Green and Yellow. Marigold or Fuchsia Pink dupatta and Baby Breath flowers in your hair would add so much more life to the combination.

Grey is still a bold choice to be worn as your bridal set, as it’s still unconventional and dull according to stereotypes. You can opt for a toned down version with a mix of embroidery and gota work or go all out like this gorgeous designer lehenga.
Nonetheless, it adds an extra oomph to your bridal look and makes you stand apart from the cliché red on red bridals.
Tip: Talking about the pairings, You can go for an all-grey lehenga, add some color to the border of your lehenga or pair it with a vibrant colored dupatta like Pink, Green, Red. Any of the options will make it look drastically different but just as beautiful.
