The Best White, Ivory, And Cream-Coloured Wedding Lehengas

Brides who aren’t big fans of bright colours, and can’t picture themselves in the traditional reds and pinks associated with Indian weddings, are increasingly experimenting with white, cream, ivory and off-white bridal lehengas. Proving that white doesn’t have to look drab or dull, the creations of contemporary designers have also demonstrated the many ways to create a white wedding look which is festive and glamorous.

So, whether you want to splurge on a designer white lehenga, or just want to feast your eyes on pretty white Indian wedding outfits, here are some options to inspire you to re-imagine your shaadi wardrobe in pristine, pearlescent, pure shades of glowing white.

If you can’t picture getting married in something that isn’t heavily embellished and teeming with bling-y sequins and stonework, this semi-stitched lehenga is what you need. The gorgeous milk-white background full of clear sequins looks like snow sparkling in the sunshine, while the floral embroidery resembles the first flowers of Spring sprouting from cold, icy earth. Ideal for pairing with flowers in the hair and blush-toned makeup, this is perfect for a bride who wants a bit of colour on her white outfit.

Price: Rs 48,500

Not every bride wants to dress in red and gold, and wear a polki set. Some want to rock oxidised silver jewellery, smokey eyes, mogra garlands in their hair, and white and silver lehengas. That’s why this lehenga is for the bride who wants an off-beat look. A pure white lehenga with silver gota patti work, this is very different from what most brides are seen in!

Price: Rs 55,000

If you’re someone who would rather wear a white wedding gown, but have to wear a lehenga, this is the kind of outfit you need. It mimics the enchanting softness of a creamy, plain white wedding-gown skirt, but the latticed embroidery and beading adds that rich, luxe look Indian wedding outfits are known for. Imagine how pretty this will look if you pair it with an organza veil in the same colour, and creamy white roses in the hair?

7. Ridhima Bhasin Ivory Hand-Embroidered Lehenga Set

Price: Rs 58,000

The breezy and floaty organza skirt of this lehenga complements the rich embellishments on the blouse beautifully. You get to have the bling of the bustier, but you can also be comfortable in an airy skirt which you don’t have to lug around. Isn’t this proof that elegance is not always about discomfort, or wearing something with a lot of embroidery and sequins?
