White is right for Delhi brides!

Move over red and ma­roons. This wed­ding sea­son, white is the colour for fash­ion for­ward brides. The trend took over the ramp a few sea­sons ago. Bol­ly­wood di­vas such as Soha Ali Khan and Bi­pasha Basu also wore white lehen­gas on their wed­dings. And now, city brides, too, are wear­ing white on their D-day to make a style state­ment.

De­sign­ers say that ear­lier white was not con­sid­ered aus­pi­cious for brides in In­dia, but that’s chang­ing now. “Sen­si­bil­i­ties have changed. Brides are will­ing to shed in­hi­bi­tions and ex­per­i­ment with their trousseau. White is a great shade, and if it works well for a bride, there’s no rea­son why they would not go for it,” says de­signer Harpreet Narula.

De­signer Tarun Tahil­iani says that white makes an el­e­gant state­ment. “White lehen­gas in jacquard, sheer silk, soft net and chan­deri evoke fan­tasy and ro­mance,” he says. De­signer Ritu Ku­mar says that white lehen­gas are very much in de­mand. “Girls are ask­ing for white lehen­gas for their des­ti­na­tion wed­dings,” she says.

Brides say the colour has a unique ad­van­tage — it stands out. “I wore white for my wed­ding be­cause I didn’t want to look like ev­ery other bride,” says Aakriti Gupta, who got mar­ried last month. De­signer Kresha Bajaj also de­signed a white lehenga for her wed­ding which in­spired many brides to try the trend.
