IBW 2012 Showcases Unconventional Bridal Colors

By  | 

raditionally, an Indian bride is supposed to wear red on her Wedding Day; some Indian communities also prefer yellow and green as the wedding colors. However, these traditions are changing and more and more modern Indian brides are thinking outside these set norms. The recent Amby Valley India Bridal Week Fashion show also depicted these changing trends; we saw bridal colors in pinks, blues, maroons, nudes, pastel hues, turquoise, burgundy and even whites and blacks. If you are planning to tie the knot soon, we hope these pictures will inspire you to choose a unique  trousseau.

Red-Sonakshi Sinha, Bipasha Basu, Mallika Sherawat displayed traditional red bridal attire and shades thereof.

Pink: Esha Deol, the pretty Bollywood starlet, tied the knot recently. While, for the wedding ceremony, she chose a traditional red Kanjeevaram sari, for the reception, she chose a pretty pink Lehenga. Kangana Ranaut also displayed a beautiful pink Lehenga at the 2012 Aamby valley fashion show. Shriya Saran, the showstopper for Neeta Lulla also wore pastel pink bridal attire heavily embellished with silver embroidery.

White: Chitrangada Singh displayed Tarun Tahiliani’s ivory white lehenga beautifully. This virginal shade suits the dusky brown Indian Complexion quite well, we believe. Dia Mirza was also a vision in Rocky S’s white lehenga.

Blue-Several models and Bollywood actors including actor Govinda’s daughter Narmada chose blue.

Black-While black is considered an inauspicious color, designers Meera and Muzaffar Ali decided to depart from the tradition and showcased dramatic black numbers with exquisite cutwork.

Here are some pictures:
