Indian Brides have the most gorgeous styles to look forward to every year. The excitement of being an Indian bride is unparalleled partly because of all the finery and grandeur of the bridal outfit.

Every Indian bride-to-be wakes up with dreams of having the most breath-taking wedding ceremony and outfits, but ends up realising the immensity of the task.

With the right insight, you can put together a perfect Indian bridal dress ensemble for yourself with minimal time, effort, and expenditure.

Indian Bridal designers drop stunning styles every year and brides-to-be will do well to watch out for the latest in bridal fashion. Now let’s look at 10 promising Indian Bridal outfit trends to take inspiration from:

1. Behold the Gown-Saree

Of course, the traditional lehenga is not the ONLY choice you have for an Indian bridal outfit. Why not choose a gown-saree as a way to unleash the unrelenting modern woman in you cloaked in all her traditional Indian glory.

2. The Belt

The biggest celebrity stylists of 2018 including Sabyasachi and Anju Modi sealed the Belted Lehenga as one among the hottest bridal outfit trends of 2018. A belt on the lehenga will keep the dupatta from threatening to trip you over as you embark on one of your many bridal walks throughout the ceremony. You can either go for a gorgeously embellished one or a subtler design as you see fit.

3. The Trail

The Trail is a classic yet undermined Bridal style in Indian weddings. However, it’s here to stay this wedding season. A long trail on your bridal lehenga will keep your wedding guests transfixed at the royal aura you exude.

4. The Show-Stopper Dupatta

The Dupatta offers added appeal, but brides deem it an unnecessary addition. In 2018, the bridal dupatta seems to have evolved and seen as the icing on the cake. Choose a gorgeously designed dupatta in exquisite fabric for your bridal outfit to be a show stopping bride this wedding season.

5. Floral Styles

Floral Indian Bridal Outfits rarely make an appearance but that doesn’t mean they are any lesser than their heavily embroidered counterparts. Beautiful floral patterns in bright candy colours will leave you immortalized as a bride to reckon with in the memories of your guests.

6. Free the Shoulder

Ever since Kareena Kapoor went bare-shouldered on her Indian  bridal outfit in Veere Di Wedding, brides-to be can’t keep calm. Shed your inhibitions with an off-shoulder choli for your bridal lehenga and you will be a vision to behold.

7. Stripes

Stripes may seem drab on an Indian bridal outfit but Sonam Kapoor boldly wore it on her wedding reception. If done right, Stripes can stand out as a real beauty on your bridal lehenga. Here are a few ways you could wear stripes on your wedding:

8. The Royal Blue

Navy Blue on the Bridal Lehenga has been a real trendsetter for 2018. Indigo and Powder Blue have replaced the conventional reds and pinks for wedding outfits this year.

9. Sheer Veil

A Sheer Veil in delicate fabric is the finishing touch you need to add a heavenly charm to your bridal look. A fully sheer veil in shimmering metallic colours cloaking you from head to toe or a semi-translucent one will ensure that your hairdo is visible all through the rituals.

10. Fusion

Most brides would rather be comfortable in a modern indo-western Indian bridal outift rather than immobilised in a traditional heavy-set lehenga. If this is you, and you’d prefer the classy over tired look, then check out a few styles below for inspiration:
