More often than not, colours are given immense importance when it comes to weddings. Ceremonial colours, i.e., hues that are considered to be culturally apt for the D-day, are now slowly being replaced by rich jewel tones and serene pastels. In an ever-changing world of wedding trends, a new one has taken over the industry by a storm, monochrome lehengas. A stroke of colour brushed across the outfit has made the new-age brides and her girl-gang open for experimentation.
Gone are the days where a laboured lehenga set with chock-full of sequins that would overpower the outfit colours. Now, it is more about self embroidery (or even prints, for that matter) that lets that one hue stand out. No matter what shade, this stroke of magic has several iterations at your service. Brides can choose detailed embroidered pieces, whereas the bridesmaids can opt for a minimal fusion one. Here are some of our favourite monochrome lehengas worn by celebrities that you can pin for your wedding festivities.
Alia Bhatt in Sabyasachi
Choosing an outfit for a summer wedding just got easier. This resplendent yellow lehenga set by Sabyasachi is the definition of a classic monotone lehenga. Pair a kundan jewellery set, just like Alia, and steal the scene with this vibrant hue.
Athiya Shetty in Anita Dongre
Want to go with a ceremonial colour? Pick this gorgeous Athiya-approved piece by Anita Dongre with self embroidery that is so picturesque, that we can't help but reserve this for our future wedding. Pair crystal jewellery with a maangtikka to stun as much as Athiya here. If you are inspired by Priyanka Chopra wedding outfit, here's your chance to recreate it.
Sonam Kapoor in Abhinav Mishra
Since we are crushing on monotones right now, why not pick this all-pink lehenga by Abhinav Mishra to satiate our saccharine colour needs? Sonam Kapoor looks extremely regal in this sequin lehenga, doesn't she? Also, we have been on a lookout for the perfect one ever since Anushka Sharma, Mira Rajput and Neha Dhupia collectively inspired us to wear pink at the phera ceremony. Looks like our search is over.
Kareena Kapoor Khan in Manish Malhotra
Almost every Kareena X Manish Malhotra look has made it to our wish-list, hence it's no surprise that this powder blue lehenga too, is one the best monotone lehengas out there. We love how she has worn her dupatta as a cape, so you can experiment with your cocktail party look by giving your own take on the styling.
Ananya Panday in Arpita Mehta
If neon-pastels are your preferred hues, then you should definitely begin your trousseau with this highlighter yellow lehenga set by Arpita Mehta. The kali are the best feature of the outfit and yet they're not TOO detailed. This number is equal parts statement-making and minimal.
Kriti Sanon in Anushree Reddy
Citrus hues, too, have been making waves on the bridal platform. So why not pick this lime green lehenga set by Anushree Reddy that you can pair with a floral tiara to a sangeet? Kriti teaches us how to style it aptly with a minimal choker set with beads and some braids.
Tara Sutaria in Punit Balana
We cannot think of a better choice than this Punit Balana number for our haldi ceremony. It's monotone, breezy and uber-simple. Not to mention that Tara Sutaria in Punit Balana has always inspired us to opt for ultra-minimal outfits. Check out the pastel pink version of this lehenga here.
