Yellow is easily the happiest of the staple hues that we generally see on Indian brides. However, for some reason the colour remains confined to the pre-wedding events, rarely making it to the D-Day festivities. However, of late, we have been spotting quite a few brides embracing the mango hue for their wedding finery and the results are equal parts refreshing and gorgeous. Here's a round-up of seven such brides who took the mango route for their wedding outfits:
Think yellow looks are good only for mehendi and haldi? Here are seven brides that will have you re-thinking with their mango-yellow lehengas:
Only a few colours light up the caramel skin tone as well as mango-yellow and this glowing bride is proof enough. Devika Puri recently tied the knot in a Jayanti Reddy ensemble and the vintage beauty of her outfit will have you swooning. The silver pittan work on the yellow silk lehenga has a certain old-world charm about it. We also love the scalloped edging of Devika’s dupatta and how the lehenga has been provided a classic appeal by staying clear of the OTT flounce and can-can. Also, don’t miss out on the garnet accents of her jewels and the perfectly done smoky eyes.
Harpreet tied the knot in a peaceful gurudwara ceremony earlier this year and you’d want to bookmark her Patyala Royal Couture lehenga in case you happen to be a 2021 bride. Ditching the regular blouse, the bride opted for a modest kurti instead and we think it’s quite a look. The mango-yellow lehenga features zardozi and golden thread work. In addition to the first dupatta, a breezy net veil has been added to the look which is giving it an ethereal appeal. This is a great summer wedding outfit and totally reminds us of sunny days and mango juice. We recommend that you give due consideration to headgear when opting for a sheer second dupatta like this bride.
The Marwar Couture lehenga on bride Palak Pasricha is as unique as the Kesar mango--glorious yellow fading into a gorgeous scarlet! The ombre effect of the skirt is here to die for and so are the detailed panels. The antique handwork has been beautifully amalgamated with multi-coloured thread embroidery to embellish this beauty and we are truly smitten. Details are everything in this look and we are particularly digging the scalloped blouse hem and the mango-yellow organza dupatta.
We are totally in love with how beautifully Pratibha has incorporated the mango hue in her bridal Kanjeevaram. The classic combination of mango-yellow and magenta is of course to die for. Also, don’t miss out on her silk blouse’s yellow embroidery. We are lovestruck. WBU?
It really does not get any more regal than this Marathi bride and her mango yellow nauvari. Look carefully and you’d notice that a hand-embroidered dupatta has been added to the zari saree for an extra layer. This is one hell of a wedding look if you ask us.
Have a taste for the just-in-season khatta meetha aam? If you answered that with a “yes” then Divya Thathi’s Rimple and Harpreet Narula lehenga will surely catch your eye. Featuring the designers’ signature multi-colored hand embroidery, the lehenga has our heart for its unique green and yellow contrast.
Dr. Ismeet Kailey’s striking green lehenga is definitely reminding us of kachcha aam! I mean look at the outfit--it is statement, unique, and oh so refreshing. From the mirror embellishments on her scalloped dupatta to the foil print of her Archna Studios skirt everything here screams summer freshness. This is a great look for a day wedding and kudos to Dr. Ishmeet for daring to think out of the box.
Is it just us or did this round-up totally had you craving for some mangoes as well? *BRB* gotta whip up a mango smoothie!
