A Lightweight lehenga is becoming more than a trend as weddings become more intimate and more brides opt for comfort than grandeur. For that gram-worthy twirling moments, a large number of brides, bridesmaids, and wedding guests are choosing for larger flared lehengas with less weight tugging them down, whether it’s for sangeet or the wedding itself. Some of these lightweight lehengas are more popular than others, and they’re also ideal for the subcontinent’s balmy tropical weather. They’re the ideal pick for nailing a twirl-worthy style for the upcoming festivities.
Floral lehengas, both embroidered and handcrafted, exude a renewing aura, making them the most popular option among light lehengas. The dreaminess of the lehengas’ classic flare is enhanced by the vibrant bold blooms’ youthful ambience. Although floral lehengas appear appropriate for any occasion, their affinity with natural elements makes them particularly appropriate for daytime events such as garden weddings or outdoor festival parties.
Mirror work, which is widely used in historical artistry such as kutch and Rajasthani embroidery, usually ensures more bold and distinct motifs than detailed ones. As a result, lehengas that are often simply minimally adorned look fantastic. Mirror lehengas are generally more appropriate for celebrations with normally lit decor, with lights glinting off of them giving the entire ensemble a surreal appeal. They can also be worn for daytime parties, but choose mirror lehengas with less detailing, allowing the colour of the lehengas to get more exposure to the sun.
However lightweight lehengas do not have to be light in colour, there is something special about pastel palettes that makes light lehengas appear even lighter and more appealing to the eye. Peach, baby pink, mild blue, grey, mint green, and coral are the most popular pastel colours for light lehengas. All of these hues bring out the billowy appearance of traditional lehenga silhouettes, giving your twirls a distinct fairy tale feel.
Chiffon is one of the lightest and softest fabrics available, making it an excellent choice for a lightweight lehenga. Chiffon lehengas, which are frequently printed with vivid colours, may easily give you that dreamy, wispy gossamer effect while yet preserving the twirl-worthy flare of a classic Indian lehenga. Simply match your delicately embellished chiffon lehenga with an elegant blouse, and you’ll have a stunning look for any occasion, from sangeet to garden reception.
