35 Indian Bridal Lehengas for overseas brides
1. Smaller Motifs on Red
This bridal red lehenga is unique because here we do not see any elaborately shaped embellishment! Though the lehenga is fully embellished, the motifs are medium or smaller in size. They are sparse but have intricate details, creating a very unique look.
2. Multicolor Floral Embroidery on Red
Another stunning red Indian bridal lehenga! It’s beautiful because it’s unique! The red color is slightly faded and that brings out the splendor of the multicolor floral embroidery all over! We see floral motifs in peach, pistachio green, pastel pink, cream etc. This is juxtaposed with zardozi embroidery.
3. The Peacock style Indian Bridal Lehenga
How to make the ultimate red Indian bridal lehenga even grander? Add motifs that remind one of royalty and grandeur! In this case, we see an entire Mughal garden on this bride’s lehenga skirt. There are domes and arches within which are placed exotic floral motifs. But what really steals the show is the ‘peacock pair’ motif that is repeated on the lower part of the lehenga. It is intricate and exquisite!
4. Red and Pastel Blue Bridal Lehenga
We are seeing a lot of red lehengas with unique elements in this list! This one for instance, pairs traditional red and gold with a quirky pastel blue. We see a lot of pastel blue thread work on the skirt and in a beautiful contrast to the bridal red, a stunning pastel blue dupatta is also placed!
5. Bridal Blush
The combination of red and gold might be classic but a bit of variation in the form of blush pink and gold may be a total game changer. For this couple, it was a morning wedding in summer which made this color combination even more impressive! The zardozi work is stunning and the inclusion of elements in net fabric betters the look!
6. Cool Toned Red Lehenga
While warm toned red lehengas are common in Indian weddings, reds in different shades and undertones can create stunning looks. This bride wears a typical red floral bridal lehenga. Here the red is cool toned. This along with the use of peach and powder blue toned thread work creates an unique look. The zari detailing is also beautiful!
7. Neon Pink Floral Bridal Lehenga
This time around, we are talking about unusual shades of usual bridal colors. While fuschia, dark pink or baby pink are common pink shades in bridal couture, neon pink isn’t! This makes this lehenga so unique. The neon pink has been paired with vibrant floral motifs in pastel tones that stand out! It goes without saying that such a color will suit only lighter skin tones!
8. Ultimate Fuschia and Gold Wedding Lehenga
If anything can give the red Indian bridal lehenga tough competition, it is this! This bright fuschia pink raw silk lehenga sits at the epitome of ethnic fashion. Gold zardozi embroidery makes the look even more exotic. The jaali embroidery, the traditional motifs, the net and sequin dupatta or the vibrancy of the look – all scream perfection!
9. Pink and Red Bridal Lehenga
Variations on red lehengas are always welcome. This typical Indian bridal lehenga in red and gold has a lot of pink as well. Pink thread work can be seen on the lower half of the lehenga skirt inside arched motifs inspired from Mughal architecture. The dupattas have a pink sheen too. The choli is seen with floral bootas in pink and gold.
10. Mesh Motif Zari Bridal Lehenga Dress
The lehenga dress is currently trending especially for reception looks! But this bride rocks a red and dark wine tone lehenga dress showcasing zari work mesh motif or designs resembling latticework. This makes the outfit even more unique!
11. Quintessential Red Indian Bridal Lehenga
This can be your dream wedding lehenga in red. We see the use of zari and thread embroidery in vertical floral patterns. Double dupatta style has been used. One dupatta is in a contrasting grey-beige tone. Sequin and zardozi embroidery have also been used in floral motifs.
12. The Patola Lehenga
This bride wears a vintage patola saree transformed into a lehenga. The light blue skirt with the traditional patola design in exquisite! Each kali depicts a wedding ritual – from Ganesh sthapana to the pheras! The contrasting orange blouse looks stunning.
13. Maroon Velvet Indian Bridal Lehenga
This beautiful Indian American couple wearing sunning Golden Sherwani with gorgeous velvet bridal Lehenga. Both the texture and the color of this Indian bridal lehenga are rich, luxurious and decadent. Mesh pattern adorns the lower hemline of the lehenga skirt. It progresses upwards into floral and leaf motifs. The sleeveless choli also has similar leaf and flower motifs. A net dupatta completes the look.
14. Red and White Indian Bridal Lehenga
This is a classic Indian bridal look! Red, white and gold go really well together. The stunning lehenga skirt flaunts gold thread and zari work in dome shaped motifs, in fish scale-like pattern! The borders are red and so is the choli. The net dupatta has an applique border on all four sides. The border also showcases gold zari work.
15. Maroon and Pink Bridal Lehenga
This maroon lehenga has all over floral embroidery in multi-colors. The use of pink thread is maximum. The dupatta in net fabric is also in a light pink color that creates the beautiful color combination of maroon and pink.
16. Pink and Pastel Wedding Lehenga
The shade of this lehenga is unique – it’s a mix of pink and a cool toned red. But what makes it even more unique is the use of pastel toned embroidery. The dominant color is pastel peach which gets showcased in the dupatta as well! We can also see a lot of silver zari work and pistachio green thread work. Belt detail has also been added.
17. White and Gold Indian Bridal Lehenga
There is something ethereal in a bride wearing a white bridal Lehenga ensemble on her wedding day! That is why Kerala brides look divine in their white and gold Kasavu sarees and heavy gold jewellery! The same look and vibe is repeated in this case, but with a lehenga. The lehenga is in ivory tone with heavy gold embellishment, looking simply stunning!
18. Pinkish Red Floral Lehenga
Sometimes a simple and traditional look is just perfect for that ideal Indian bridal look. This floral lehenga is in a red shade with pink undertones. The design language is mainly floral. On the skirt, we see that the motifs have been arranged in horizontal tiers with proper floral motifs in one, tiny floral bootas in another, jaali work shown in the third etc.
19. Maroon White & Gold Indian Bridal Lehenga
While red, white and gold is a great bridal combination, maroon, white and gold is an even better one! This bridal lehenga proves that. The skirt is white with elaborate gold thread and zari work. The choli has zari floral motifs on a rich maroon fabric. The dupatta is in maroon with an ornate border and gold bootas.
20. Red Anarkali Lehenga Dress
This isn’t a typical lehenga but it’s an anarkali dress inspired by the extraordinary flare of the traditional lehenga skirt. These dresses are currently trending in Indian bridal fashion. The look is unique and aesthetic. The zari embroidered motifs in the flare of the dress look beautiful! Two dupattas have been used – one red and the other in a contrasting white color. Churidar bottoms haslve been added to the ensemble.
21. Blush Pink and Red Crewel Work Lehenga
This Indian bridal lehenga is one of the lightest ones in this list. It is made of net and chiffon fabrics. The skirt has a straight cut without much flare. But what fascinates the onlooker is the red crewel work floral motifs all over the lehenga skirt. They look vibrant and fresh. The full sleeve choli showcases silver zardozi and sequin embroidery which can be seen on the border of the dupatta as well.
22. Ready in Red
To bring in a little bit of uniqueness in the regular bridal red lehenga, the designer has used pastel blue thread work along with gold zari embroidery on this tomato red lehenga. Gold jhallar details have also been added on the sleeves.
23. Gold Thread Work Red Lehenga
A typical red wedding lehenga is made extraordinary by the juxtaposition of various kinds of embroidered motifs on it! We can see floral motifs, trees, jacquard patterns, bootas of all shapes and sizes, paisleys in gold thread work and also sequin work on this lehenga.
24. Beige and White Indian Bridal Lehenga
Whites never fail to look elegant! This lehenga uses silk and a layer of exquisite tulle on it! On the net we can see detailed embroidered motifs. ‘White on white’ thread embroidery looks exotic along with motifs in matte gold. The matte has a brownish beige tone that looks even more elegant. The lehenga has cut-work borders.
25. More Red and Gold Lehengas
Indian brides will never get bored with the red and gold bridal look. This one is on the lighter side with embroidered vertical floral stripes on the skirt. Near the hemline more detailed designs can be seen.
26. Pink and Gold Panel Design Lehenga
While the typical dark pink and gold Indian bridal lehenga isn’t uncommon, this one showcases an unique design language. The lehenga skirt has a thick gold border. It also flaunts vertical panels, each of which showcases different types of motifs – zigzaz patterns, large ornate discs, bootas, floral motifs within diamond shaped geometric patterns etc. The choli has tiny gold bootas while the matte gold dupatta has an ornate border.
27. The Royal Red Lehenga
This red bridal lehenga is in a shade a tad bit darker than the usual bright red attires we are used to seeing on brides. That coupled with the very intricate show of craftsmanship on the attire, in the form of real gold zari embroidery, makes this outfit a rendition of royal glamor.
28. Red Lehenga Without Zari
This is perhaps the most unique take on a traditional look, in this list! The lehenga here is in the perfect bridal red color. But what makes it different is the use of just thread work on it. We don’t see even a bit of gold or silver. Floral and paisley motifs in beige and cream toned thread dominate the skirt. The two dupattas complement the look – one being in the same red as the lehenga itself and another being in a contrasting cream tone.
29. Pastels on Cream – Indian Bridal Lehenga
One of the most aesthetic looks on this list – this Indian bridal lehenga is made up of a luscious cream toned silk on which we can see stunning floral and leaf-inspired embroidery in pastel shades like peach and moss green! These looks are redefining the concept of Indian bridal fashion.
30. The Orange Indian Bridal Lehenga
Though orange as a color is very popular when it comes to Indian bridal sarees, with lehengas it’s just the opposite! We seldom see a bridal lehenga in orange! It’s strange because orange is a warm toned color and naturally complements each and every Indian skin tone. Moreover, combined with gold zari or thread work, orange looks extremely stunning! This particular lehenga, along with zari work showcases embroidery in cream tone. Floral motifs, motifs of birds, jaali embroidery etc can be seen!
31. The Sky-blue Wedding Lehenga
That’s a really unique choice for a bridal attire – this flowery lehenga comes in a soothing sky blue shade and showcases all-over floral embroidery in shades like pink, peach, yellow, silver etc. The lehenga also has mirror work detailing. The net dupatta flaunts a beautiful floral cut work border.
32. Rust and Gold Velvet Bridal Lehenga
It’s the heaviest lehenga on the list! Rust is a unique choice for bridal wear but on velvet, it looks stunning and decadent! Added to that is heavy zari and sequin work in intricate and elaborate details! What we get is a lehenga perfectly suited for the larger-than-life big fat Indian wedding!

33. The Navy and Gold Bridal Lehenga
Navy is a rich and deep color that looks great on Indian wedding wear. It looks especially beautiful on girls with cool undertones, just like this bride! Her navy wedding lehenga showcases zari and beige thread work in vertical panel-like motifs on the skirt. The choli is sleeveless and has similar embroidery work on the neckline. Net dupatta looks good with the whole look. Checkout more of Blue Lehenga.
34. The Ultimate Golden Indian Bridal Lehenga
We finally have the quintessential golden bridal lehenga in this list! Though it’s gorgeous, this is a trend not every bride is comfortable with carrying. But if she can, it looks nothing less than outrageously beautiful! Most of the embellishment in case of this lehenga comes in woven form along with zari, zardozi and sequin work.
35. The Ultimate Velvet Bridal Lehenga
We have saved the heaviest, the most traditional and, in short, the most stunning Indian bridal lehenga for the end! This is an all velvet lehenga with heavy flared skirt, choli and double dupatta style. We see the play of many colors like maroon, olive green, dark pink, gold, red, dark green etc. The velvet gives the colors various shades of their own. The skirt showcases traditional paisley motifs and cut work border.
