This is an exceptionally appropriate pick as it also has a lot of zari and gold sequin detailing. Floral and peacock motifs, the double dupatta look etc make this lehenga perfect for your 2023 wedding.

The embellishment also carries ochre yellow elements that looks good with both the zari and the gold sequin work. The cross-body dupatta is also in a bright ochre tone.

11. Red Alternatives


Reds will also be present in 2023 but in alternative shades! Take for example this light coral red bridal lehenga – on pure raw silk, embroidery techniques like zardosi, aari with sequin, resham, marori, french knots and nakshi have been used to enumerate exquisite doli and peacock motifs. The heavily embroidered princess-cut blouse and the organza light coral and tulle head dupattas complement this exquisite lehenga.

12. The Lotus Lehenga
