This year saw some of the biggest Bollywood celebrities get married. From Sonam Kapoor to Neha Dhupia, Deepika Padukone and finally Priyanka Chopra. For wedding bloggers like me, it’s been one blissful eventful year. So naturally I thought what better way to round up the year than to list down my Favourite 2018 Bridal Lehengas.
This year saw scores of Indian and NRI women get married in the most beautiful bridal lehengas you can think of. From designer lehengas to custom designed one of a kind pieces, these women really know how to throw a big fat Indian Wedding.
The idea behind this post is to give all you 2019 brides to be a summary of the trendiest, prettiest, a list of my personal Favourite 2018 Bridal Lehengas all in one place. You can look at it like an inspiration post and use it to bookmark all the ideas you would like to incorporate in your wedding.
P.S. There are obviously less expensive options to every single bridal lehenga from this post. I am not hinting at replicas, but that’s a story for another time.
Favourite 2018 Bridal Lehengas – Classic Red & Gold

If there was one wedding that truly stood out for me, it has to be this one. The all well coordinated reds and ivory outfits was beautifully captured in this palatial Jaipur Wedding.

The classic gold and red bridal lehenga is a all season favourite. If your taste is traditional, classic go for this colour combination.
A good thing about red and golds is that, you don’t need premium designers for it. If you have a moderate budget, you will easily get a heavy looking piece from any of the retail lehenga stores as well for a fraction of the price.

Remember the latest release of Sabyasachi Bridal 2018 lehengas? The one with plunging necklines, and the same Deepika Padukone’s red floral goth bridal lehenga?
This mehendi green bridal lehenga was by far my favourite from that release, and I was so happy to see a real bride wear it for her wedding. The colour is fresh, new and honestly looks so different yet stunning. There are some obvious customisations to the original design. Notice that heavy dupatta border? Makes a world of a difference, right?
Always remember, opting for fresh new colours comes at its own cost. If your budget permits, don’t shy away from trying new styles.

I am absolutely in love with everything about this portrait shot. Unfortunately, I don’t know where the lehenga is from. But doesn’t it looks gorgeous? The delicate embroidery, and that net light coloured dupatta. It has pretty written all over it.

Pastels & Pop Bridal Lehengas

If you can’t decide between pastels or pop, then this is a good compromise. With hints of pop running oh-so-slyly all across the bridal lehenga, the overall look with the pop accessories like roses on the hair, the bling earrings brings the look together.

Can’t Pick A Favourite Colour? Go For Multi-Coloured Bridal Lehengas

The good thing about multi-coloured heavy lehengas is that you can easily reuse it by teaming it up with lots of other combinations. Take for instance this particular lehenga skirt in picture. Now, you can easily let go of the blouse and dupatta, and instead wear a simple white top and still look great.
There are lots of ways to play around with your wedding outfit once the functions are done with. Keep it away for a year or so and revamp it completely with a different look.
The All Gold Bridal Lehenga

One of the new ‘it’ colours of this year. Golds and brown golds looked great on brides. This particular bridal lehenga also comes in other shades of reds and blues depending on how you wish to customise it. I personally love how this looks.
Simple & Elegant In Mint

So many brides look for the no-fuss bridal lehenga. They want something that is simple, elegant and classic. If you’re one of them, then you might just like this monotone greyish looking wedding lehenga. The jewellery itself has been kept to a minimum which complements the look quite well.
