2023 has witnessed its fair share of big fat Indian weddings. And with these weddings, brides offered a whole world of Pinterest-worthy fashion trends. Not just brides, though. Since this is the year people attend weddings in person, every guest and bridesmaid made a fashion statement on their own.
If you are looking for some Indian wedding fashion inspiration, read on!
The colour palette
2022 is the year of colours. Brides have really taken to experimenting and do not shy away from switching up from the traditional red. Whether you are planning on picking that big, flared lehenga or going for a silk saree, here are the top trending colours of 2022.
1. Vision in white
Unless you have been on a social media cleanse, you would have had Alia’s Sabyasachi white saree splash all over your feed last week. When most Bollywood brides opted for traditional reds, Alia’s breezy white saree was like a breath of fresh air. The intricate gold embroidery with that Kundan jewellery created a summer wedding look.

2. Ravishing red
It wouldn’t be an Indian wedding if red wasn’t a part of the colour scheme. But 2022 has put a spin on the age-old colour. Designers have started to make the colour to become more vibrant. From rani-pink reds to vermilion reds, there is a whole range of reds to choose from. This option is great for brides who wish to amp up without missing out on the traditions and customs.

3. Pretty in pastel
When Pantone colour of the year was announced, we wondered how long it would be before brides added this colour to their wedding trousseau. Turns out, we didn’t have to wait that long. The very peri colour became an instant hit as it was easy on the eyes, off-beat, and makes a great choice for fashion-conscious brides.

4. Mesmerising in mustard
Gone are the days when yellow was the colour of choice for Haldi function. This vibrant colour has now become a mainstream pick among brides and bridesmaids. The colour by itself offers a range of hues for everyone, from subtle mustard to eye-grabbing neon yellow; there is a yellow out there for everyone.

Now that you have colour inspiration let’s talk silhouettes. In recent times, bridal dresses have expanded beyond the confines of lehengas and sarees. And if you are a bride-to-be, here are a few ideas that you can rock, irrespective of the culture you are from. These are great options for wedding guests too, so take note!
1. Flared pants
Fashion designers rekindled the good-old shararas and brought them back in style, but with a modern twist. This modern-day version is filled with drama. The pants come with an extra flare just below the knee, giving you enough room to groove! If sharara-styled pants don’t feel like your cup of tea, opt for flared palazzos paired with a bralet. Throw on a front-open jacket, and you’ve got yourself the perfect pool party look!

2. Monochrome embroidered gowns
When Shibani wore that nude gown with red embroidery to her wedding with Farhan Akhtar, it grabbed eyes, and how! It was a bold choice, sure. But it was also a fashion statement that shows how easy it is to amp up your style statement. The countless man-hours of artisans truly stand out among the crowd of tulle-heavy lehengas and shimmery sarees.

3. Bling it on
The fashion industry is finally giving artisans their due by creating designs that showcase their talent and heritage. Sequinned ruffled sarees, intricate mirror worked bralets, and zardosi heavy embroidery headbands are some of the popular encounters this bridal season. As brides become more aware of sustainability and insist on reusability, these off-beat accessories and trousseau options work great.
