Do you know the significance behind the color red in Indian weddings? The color red plays a huge role in Indian culture as the symbol of marriage. It signifies anything auspicious and is considered to indicate sensuality, purity and fertility.
Here are some classic additions to add to your red bridal lehenga that will give you the classic bridal look:
  1. Neckline: Opt for either a Sabyasachi sweetheart or round neckline. Both of the necklines can be used for the front and back necks of our blouse!
  2. Fabric: Red is a vibrant deep color and needs a solid base for it to pop in pictures and embrace it's true color . Our recommendation is to either choose raw silk or micro-velvet as both of these fabrics are rich and heavy and you would not have to worry much about the embroideries or heavy hand work as well.
  3. Sleeves: Keeping in mind the sweetheart/round neckline, elbow-length or 3/4 sleeves will work really well!
  4. Accent colors: Although a typical red-gold lehenga looks amazing and is a common choice, we would suggest to add at least one accent color. Colors within the lehenga help enhance the embroidery and also give you options to work with for décor, jewelry, groom and family outfits. Some common colors that go well with a red base include peach/pink tones, light and dark green, mint, ice blue, and off-white.
