For a bride getting married in 2020, the bridal lehenga options have really become quite interesting. Dressing up to get married in the drawing room of your house, amidst your few closest ones, is quite drastically different from getting married in the extravagant Indian wedding style with an attendance of almost hundreds of guests. The way the bride gets dressed also ought to be different. An ideal Bridal lehenga for an intimate wedding would not have heavy embroideries, very intricate detailing and an over the top red carpet styling. Brides in 2020 are opting for pleasant colours, light embroideries and minimal silhouettes that can be styled and very easily worn into their married lives as well.

4. PAYAL KEYAL DESIGNS
This designer has been on my wishlist for a couple of years now. The designs are the embroideries are astoundingly unique. There is something rich and exquisite about her collections rendering them a vibe of royalty. She plays more around the neutral earthy tones and probably that is what adds to the regal tonality of her outfits. In the brands own words ‘the designer aims revamping the vintage styles to the modern style without losing its elegance and grandeur.’
5. TAMANNA PUNJABI KAPOOR
The brand has such a fresh, chic vibe to it that its hard to resist for a girl. There is nothing too traditional about the embroideries ,designs or the silhouettes. There mirror and sequin work is absolutely drool worthy and there is no reason why a bride would not love to have her Bridal Lehenga from the brand, especially if it is a day time wedding. The colour palettes are unique, earthy and very soothing to the eye.
6. RIDHI MEHRA
The brand and its aesthetics are a flattering choice for women. There is an element of timelessness and classic eloquence that underlines the collections. The colour palette too is very rich and minimal without sudden bursts of bright colours in between. In the brand’s own words “Our collections define a clear love for vintage, imbibing European influences mixed with traditional Indian aesthetics.”
In fact, it is very apt time for the brides to be innovative with their choice of looks. And the Bridal lehenga is the most integral part of it. Go in for different hues of colours, like lavender, mint green, bottle green, navy blue, browns. Less gathering means, lesser pressures to succumb to the conventional accepted ways. Do not wear any traditional jewellery. Experiment with modern jewellery styles or go in for something that spells out your personality the best.
