Winter might be the official wedding season in India but nothing compares to the fun and excitement of a summer wedding. Golden sunsets, warm weather and stunning locations — the summer season is one of the most beautiful seasons to get married. Choosing the perfect bridal lehenga for summer can seem daunting, you want something elegant but you also want something fun and flowy; you want to stick to tradition but you also want something trendy. If you’re worried about picking the perfect outfit, here are some of the chicest bridal lehengas that are perfect for your D-day!
Boho brides
One of the most amusing bridal trends has to be the boho bride. A trend that began sometime after covid, boho-inspired bridal wear is a fun way to incorporate more colour, prints and patterns into your bridal ensemble. Indian bridal wear outfits usually incorporate elements such as lace, frills, and tie-up details on materials like silk and chiffon with bold prints and patterns.

Payal Singhal’s colourful collections are what is said to have started the boho bride trend. Her use of colourful elements over light-hued fabrics is what makes her designs truly stand out. This colourful Alice Stone creation features a stone embroidered lehenga in a georgette base. The halter-style top and skirt feature abundant details in the form of colourful beads, stonework, and bright-coloured tassels which extend onto the mukaish organza dupatta but only along borders to keep the outfit from appearing too heavy.
