Red lehengas are a staple wedding outfit for a traditional bride, period. No matter the number of wavering bridal trends that try to make an entry in our 'upcoming trend' list, most of them hardly see the light of day. It's no surprise that the ceremonial colour has extensively been a part of the celebrity bridal trousseau as well. For instance, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Sonam Kapoor, and Bipasha Basu had taken resort to a conformist red lehenga as an ode to customary rituals for their wedding. Just like them, we can still experiment with the traditional look in tandem to our personal style.
While we are drooling over the celebs's lehenga preferences, we have outfit options for your own big fat Indian wedding that you can rock with these red lehengas.

Break some stereotypes (albeit not all the way), with some mirror-work instead of the usual zardozi thread work on your bridal lehenga with a decolletage blouse with this stunning piece by Tamanna Punjabi Kapoor.
Bring out your innate poise with this self-embroidered organza lehenga with floral motifs and bead embellishments. To make the look tad dramatic, pair the outfit with red or silver jewellery with a bright red lip.

We love ourselves a lehenga dipped head-to-toe florals. While this lehenga instantly reminds us of Deepika's post-wedding bash look with Frieda Kahlo inspiration, this lehenga is a feminine version where the designer has OD'ed on 3-D floral embellishments on the red fabric.
No one can underestimate the power of an unadorned lehenga with superb zardozi work only on the hem and borders. This red lehenga set with a sleeveless blouse works wonders for a summer wedding if you prefer understated outfits.
