Go for gold: Hautest lehengas to bling-up your bridal look

When it comes to bridal lehengas in India, red and varied tones of it seem to dominate. Although there is one colour that might not be a bridal favourite but has been embraced by leading couturiers – gold. From Sabyasachi’s heavily embroidered lehengas paired with a net dupatta to Itrh’s crinkled gold perfection, today brides have ample options to choose from.

In case you are looking for a modern heirloom with surface detailing, Delhi-based couturiers Shantanu and Nikhil can be your go-to designers. Not just celebrated for the pre-stitched saris, over the years they have acquired the status of being revivalists who gave traditional Indian techniques a millennial makeover.

Gold and its varied renditions manifest in Manish Malhotra’s bridal creations. It is not all about going out and loud with gold, just hints of it can also suffice. We love the way he has used intricate gold embroideries with iridescent embellishments to create this pattern.

If there is one bridal couturier who understands tasteful decadence, it is Sabyasachi. Think gold is not just embroideries but embellishments too, juxtaposed with hints of hot pink, greens, and purples. He treats his lehengas as a canvas to exhibit India’s rich techniques.
