Best Indian Bridal Dresses With a Contemporary Twist

A wedding is one such occasion that involves way too many people, way too much glam and glitter, way too much noise and celebration, and way too much attention which is why it becomes essential for every participant in that wedding to look their best.


The involvement of such a heavy crowd and people makes it necessary to keep your fashion updated. The magical union of two mentally and emotionally compatible people leads to the grand celebration of marriage. Of course, what you wear on the three long day event matters quite a lot. The royal treatment given to each and every relative leaves them pondering over the bond you have shared with them over the years.


When it comes to dressing up ourselves, European and western culture has highly affected that zone which is why everyone wishes to style their Indian ethnic outfits with the modern contemporary touch. Here are 5 options for you to choose from in the collection of Indian ethnic crushed with contemporary silhouettes.


The first one is for the brides fascinated by Christian weddings and who wish to wear a gown rather than a lehenga or saree for their day. You can wear an ethnic gown, which means it’ll be shaped more like the western gown but the ethnic differentiation will be created by the use of embroidery or zardosi work and of course the fabric it is made out of.


One can do experiments with the cutting of the neck and back, making it more sensuous. Also, keep your makeup minimal in case you’re opting for some bright shades. The second option to discover is the latest tradition of palazzo pants and shararas.


Anushka Sharma’s look from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil from the song ‘Cutie-pie’ perfectly defines the absolute balance of Indian wear infused with modern silhouettes. During her Mehendi, she opted for a shirt styled with a long, ethnic skirt and decided to put on a gorgeous Kundan neckpiece that completely defined the neckline.


She was also seen wearing a beautiful sharara at the end of the song with her eyes smoked up and she was curled and left open. The third option is for the bestie of the bride who can also opt for a sharara but pair it with a crop top or a blouse instead. You can also add slits to your sharara to make it look sassier.

Pull-on the look with some hangings to make the face look more defined and don’t forget to add some tassels at the back of your blouse and the side tie-up of your sharara. The next one is my personal favorite which is a stitched saree.


Saree itself is one of the favorite attires of Indian women but when the pleats and pallu are already stitched, they give a very sleek and slim structure to the whole body. One can make it western by changing the style of the blouse. Backless blouses are an old story, the recent trend is an off-shouldered or a cold-shouldered blouse which can make a world of a difference to the whole look.


Whatever option you pick, it will be recommended to keep the hair, makeup, and jewelry according to the color and style. If the color is bright then keep the eyes and highlight bold while the lips must be nude. In case the color of your outfit is dull or nude then you can pick a bright shade for your lips and keep your eyes minimal.
