Scene-stealing, or in this case, show-stopping lehengas, is all a bride desires during the course of her wedding planning. A perfect outfit, that is an ode to the best day of her life, is all they want to ace. And of course, don't we all want these outfits from leading designers? It's not just to gloat about it ( although the bride totally can) but is also about the heirloom-factor and memories that are associated with it.
If you are one of us who loves fashion labels, designers, trends, then we suggest you have a look at these show-stopper lehengas that were present on the ramps of Lakme Fashion Week, that you can totally add in your trousseau.
Prefer soft pastels over bold hues? Then, this powder pink lehenga set with minimal embroidery by Punit Balana is your best bet. We love how the statement latkans steal all the show. Reserve this piece for your post-phera reception.
Since summer weddings are incomplete without some florals, include this uber-chic lehenga set by Mrunalini Rao featuring a key-hole blouse and a floral-printed dupatta. The kali are definitely power-packed and scene-stealing, don't you agree?
Looking for some more motivation to opt for jewel tones? Look for none other than this resplendent purple lehenga with abstract sequin work with attached cape-dupatta by Mrunalini Rao. We love how we saw two of the designer's styles as the show-stopper outfits.
If you're bold enough to flaunt a modern blouse at the wedding, then this one is for you. A white and gold cape-inspired power sleeves by Pooja Shroff is a fun twist to the regular run-off-the-mill lehenga set.

Make your sangeet nights on the dance floor a highlighting affair with this sequin set by Shriya Som. The reason why this outfit made its mark as a show-stopper outfit is because of the almost-off-shoulder cape blouse.
This summer, play with some prints with this resplendent printed lehenga set by Rajdeep Ranawat. If you resonate with a boho-vibe of the outfit, go for it! You can choose to go sans jacket, of course.
SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi
After witnessing Sonam Kapoor's reception lehenga that was chock-full of chevron prints, it instantly paved into our wish-lists. If you are looking for one yourself, then opt for this multicolour jacket-lehenga set by SVA.
Shivan and Narresh
Wonder what made this stunning outfit one of the best show-stopping lehengas till date? It is the pleasant inclusion of spikes on a velvet asymmetrical lehenga. The colour too, stands out from the ceremonial ones. This Shivan and Narresh one is definitely is a contemporary outfit must-have.
