What makes Lehengas and Choli’s so important in Indian bride’s life?
Wedding is one of the most important parts in a girl’s life because she transforms into a married woman. It is the day when everybody’s eyes are on her. This is the day when each and everything about her has to be special. From her attire to her footwear, from her makeup to her jewelry. Everything about her demands keen attention. The brides have a wide variety of bridal dresses to pick and choose from like Saree, Salwar-Suit, Lehenga-Choli, Lancha, Sharara, Gown and the list continues.
Lehenga Choli is in Indian tradition since the age of Gods and you will find most of the brides-to-be flaunting it often. It is such an elegant and glamourous dress that nobody escapes its charm. Lehenga Choli is the most preferred part of Indian bride’s attire. Being the most favorite bridal dress, lehenga has seen revolutionary changes with time. Earlier, Indian brides preferred only basic colours like red and maroon for their bridal lehenga but now, the colour choices are ample. The colours range from white to red. Even contrasting combinations like green and magenta, pink and purple etc. are very popular.
The exuberant colors for bridal dresses are symbolic of festivity and fertility.
Some brides prefer royal and smooth textured clothes like silk, georgette etc. along with embroidery using zari, gota, mirrors, sequins and sometimes real gold threads. There is always a matching dupatta to complete the entire look.
