Environmental awareness is a real driving force for today youth! With waste management in mind, the youth are going for wedding day outfits that can be re-worn later. Such choices showcase individualism too. Also, many brides are going for vintage outfits from their mother & or grandmothers & wedding trousseau.

Embroidering names on bridal lehengas was seen trending a few years back. But this time, the fashion is back with much more vigour.

Veils were once considered to be an integral and even culturally necessary part of the bride attire. But wedding fashion nowadays does not make it mandatory. This is changing as designers, like Sabyasachi Mukherjee, are bringing it back. The veil has a vintage charm and Bollywood has also played a role in popularizing it again. Masaba Gupta latest wedding wear collection featuring Kareena Kapoor showcases numerous outfits with sheer and net veils.

6. Saree Supremacy

Brides who have a choice between wearing a saree and wearing a lehenga on their wedding day, are preferring to go for the former. This is perhaps because a saree takes forward the philosophy of sustainability. Moreover, they are easy to maintain, can be worn multiple times later and can be passed on from generation to generation. For the same reasons, bridesmaids and guests are also going for sarees over lehengas.

Trending Colors

7. Vivid Colors as Opposed to Pastels

Baby pink has always been a loved shade for brides. You cannot imagine a wedding trousseau without a lehenga or saree in baby pink. In pre wedding functions we can always see brides or bridesmaids in baby pink. But cool toned lavenders or even shades of lilac are taking their place these days. Lavender somehow complements flowy fabrics. So flowy lavender gowns or lehengas with crystal and pearl embroidery or chikankari work will be quite common in the coming wedding season. The look also goes with the minimalistic, modern and whimsical themes.

Heavy dupattas can sometimes become very difficult to carry! Designers in the lastest Lakme Fashion Week have come up with outfits like sarees, lehengas and gowns that come with attached dupattas.

Like the organza saree was trending last year, this year it the georgette saree. Think of retro looks with elegant pearl jewellery, big sunglasses and soft, luxurious georgette sarees.

23. Contrasting Color Combinations and Textures

While contrast colors have been in trend on and off, this time we see the juxtaposition of highly contrasting shades and also textures.

Ruffles are created by pleating fabrics like tulle, net or organza. They are attached to various parts of an outfit to create depth in texture and also increase the feminine appeal of the look. Cascading ruffles on the lehenga skirt looks extremely elegant. Ruffles are also being used on sleeves or hemlines. Brides in 2024 are loving these elements more than traditional embellishment.

Skip the traditional blouse or choli this year! Instead go for a peplum top! This look is inspired by Manish Malhotra’s stunning bridal collection – ‘Ruhaniyaat’. The peplum blouse adorned with zari or resham thread work detailing and paired with a lehenga skirt is a classic look and has a vintage appeal. It gives out imperial and royal vibes. Go for peplum blouses with detailed yoke design

19. Low & Deep Necklines

The latest fashion weeks have introduced this new element in bridal attire. Brides are nowadays comfortable with flaunting such cuts. Deep necklines accentuate the upper half of the body. This trend is going to be huge this season. Deep ‘V’ shaped necklines look extremely elegant with structured lehenga skirts in 2024. This trend is also great for curvy figures. Plunging, low, ‘V’ shaped necklines highly complement curvy figures.

20. Sheer Fabrics

Silks are very much in demand this year but when were they not! Coupled with silk, sheer fabrics are making a special appearance. Fabrics like net, tulle, organza and even fine georgette are being used to create sheer sleeves, overlays, ruffles etc. Together with lace details or delicate embroidery, they create an illusion of modesty with sensuality.

21. Personalized Embellishment

Though not a new thing, this type of lehenga styling is back in 2024. Embroidering the name of the husband on the bride’s lehenga has been a thing for years. But this time, brides are keen on sporting lehengas with things like vows, images of bride and groom, messages from loved ones, important dates etc embroidered or embossed on them. Any line, name or date that is personally important to the bride or groom or both, is finding a place on the wedding lehenga.

22. Threadwork Over Bling

We won’t see much of sequin or zari work in this year’s bridal lehengas as more and more stress is being given on pure thread embroidery. Threadwork can add a different dimension to clothing adding more depth and texture. In vibrant colors, crafts like phulkari, Kashmiri crewel work, Bengal kantha, Gujarati stitch etc celebrate the supremacy of Indian craftsmanship. Using such crafts for wedding fashion also means supporting local artists and their work.

23. Floral Applique Work

Applique work refers to the technique of sewing fabric on fabric to create beautiful motifs. Though applique is not commonly used on bridal attire, this year it is very popular in the form of floral motifs. Dainty flowers, bold blossoms or intricate petals – they not only create a 3D effect but also goes really well with ‘whimsical’ or ‘enchanted’ themed weddings.

24. Delicate Pearl Embroidery

When it comes to embellishment on bridal lehengas in 2024, pearls are being preferred over sequins or crystals or for that matter, anything! Pearls create a sense of opulence! Apart from using pearls in embroidery, they are used in tassels, latkans and even buttons. They are elegant, have a regal appeal and create an overall sophisticated look.

25. Lotus Motif

The lotus motif on a bridal attire isn’t anything new! Considered auspicious, the lotus motif was an integral part of both the bridal attire and mehendi during the bygone days! It has resurfaced this year and is being used extensively on bridal lehengas along with floral jaal work. In resham thread work it looks exotic especially on multi-color lehengas!

26. Cut Dana Work

Along with delicate pearl embroidery, another craft that is being widely loved on bridal lehengas is cut dana embroidery. Cut dana embroidery is the art of using angularly cut stones on fabric to create exquisite designs. These stones reflect light leading to dream-like illusion. Honeycomb patterns and floral clusters in cut dana are particularly in vogue on fabrics like raw silk and silk.

27. Huge Peacock Embroidery

Apart from floral applique work, another kind of floral design along with birds embroidery in trend this year in 2024 are large floral motifs. On fabrics like silks, satin or even velvet, these prints look amazing, contemporary and simply aesthetic.

28. Lavender Bridal Lehenga


Even last year, you could not imagine a bridal trousseau without a lehenga in baby pink! This year, however, this spot has been taken by cool toned lavenders. Whimsical, ethereal, mystical wedding themes are the order of the day in 2024 and lavender somehow compliments flowy fabrics and dreamy cuts! Lavender or even lilac toned bridal lehengas with crystal and pearl embroidery or chikankari work will be seen pretty much at every wedding in 2024.
