Today let us tell you about 30 concepts or elements in bridal ethnic fashion that would be unique to 2024 weddings.

Contemporary silhouettes like structured skirts are way more comfortable than traditional lehenga skirts with heavy flare. So, brides are going for such contemporary cuts as they are prioritizing comfort! Contemporary cuts include the use of structured jackets, unique dupatta draping styles, asymmetrical hemlines etc! These styles stand out yet are very easy to carry and comfortable!

2. Barbie Pink

Pinks are not totally out of the league this season. The Barbie movie has made the shade Barbie Pink a symbol of feminism and girl-power! At the same time, this color is bold, vivid, bright and gives vintage vibes. Barbie-core pink bridal lehengas are already in vogue. They somehow have the free-spirited appeal!

3. White or Ivory

Although red is not anymore mandatory for a bridal look since a long time, fully white or ivory bridal ensembles were still not totally accepted. However, in 2024 that is about to change. Fully ivory or white bridal lehengas will be in high demand this year. They can be combined with gold or silver embellishment. Even shades of beige or cream are trending!

4. Contrast of Colors and Textures

While the pairing of contrast colors has been in fashion for quite a few years, the juxtaposition of varied textures is what makes this wedding season special! Vibrantly colored silk fabric when combined with gold brocade creates an exotic look. This is the aesthetic that is in vogue in 2024.


5. Classic Lehengas with Modern Twist

A thigh high slit on the lehenga skirt adds that much needed “oomph” factor. It’s a completely contemporary design and some brides are loving the idea! It’s a bold choice though and can work if you can carry it well! Blouses with deep ‘V’ shaped necklines paired with skirts having high slits look utterly sensuous and is reminiscent of Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s lehenga designs.

7. Structured Lehengas

More tailored and structured bridal looks are being preferred by brides this wedding season. Lehenga skirts in more sleek and shapely cuts are totally in demand. Cuts for skirts like fit-and-flare, fishtail etc are trending. Lehenga silhouettes in 2024 resembling the shapes of western gowns – that is what brides are going for!

8. Lehenga Sarees

The style is ethnic yet totally unique! In this case a long piece of cloth, like a saree, is draped over an ornate lehenga skirt but, unlike the traditional saree, is not pleated!!

9. Vintage Lehengas

Not only is the vintage wedding look trending this season, actual vintage lehengas are what brides are running after! The concept of flaunting a revived vintage lehenga will be a deciding factor in determining major bridal looks. You can do the same with your mother’s or grandmother’s wedding lehenga. The idea also supports the concept of recycling outfits and creating less wastage!

10. Fuss Free Looks

The bride of 2024 prefers clothing that is fuss-free and easy-to-carry! Heavy bridal dupattas can become extremely cumbersome! Perhaps with a view to make it easier for the new-age bride,  designers came up with lehengas with huge trailing attached dupattas! These dupattas are light and feathery but very long which makes them gorgeous and easy to carry at the same time! Attached dupattas also make the whole look extremely elegant and royal!

12. Veils


While veils were once an integral part of the bride’s attire, lately ethnic wedding fashion did not make it necessary. However, in 2024 there will be a significant rise in the use of bridal veils with the lehenga. It has been popularized by designers like Sabyasachi Mukherjee and Masaba Gupta. The veil has a vintage charm and would go well with vintage or Bollywood themed weddings.

13. Lehenga Dupattas Special Drape

A type of bridal lehengas will be seen in 2024 that drape the dupatta and adopt a different style. It is looking like a beautiful lehenga saree which has the elegance of lehenga and classiness of a saree. This is a going to be a very popular trends in 2024.

14. Mermaid Lehengas

Variations of the mermaid style lehenga skirt, like the fishtail cut or the ‘fit and flare’ type of skirt, will be in vogue! It is a structured, tailored alternative to the voluminous, flared traditional lehenga skirt. This cut looks especially gorgeous when paired with heavy embellishment and high slit! The ‘new age bride’ theme can be flaunted like a pro in an eclectic fish cut lehenga!

15. Use of Ruffles

Use of Rufflesshaadiwish

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. Ruffles can be used subtly on borders and hemlines. They can also be used to create more volume on lehenga tiers. They look vibrant, delightful and can also add an element of boho to the bridal look!

16. Lehengas with Trail

One of the most prominent trends in bridal lehengas of 2024 is long flowy silhouettes. That is why we have elements like long attached dupattas, flowing capes and veils. Another element that is being loved by brides is a lehenga skirt with trail. The look isn’t much different from the skirt of Christian wedding gowns! The lehenga skirt is designed with a flowing, very long trail. The look is dreamy, illusionary and grand.

17. Tiny Blouses

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.

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.

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

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.
