A lehenga is traditional Indian attire worn for wedding celebrations. Unlike western wedding ceremonies, brides avoid wearing white, as it’s a symbol of mourning. Instead, they opt for a colorful sari that reflects their region of origin. Typically, shades of red are popular colors as they represent happiness and good luck to the married couple. More modern brides, though, want to stand out and have been choosing other colors like blue, tangerine, green, gold, and coral. These colorful lehengas are embroidered with intricate gold designs made from 24 karat gold thread and adorned with crystals. The bride is then draped with an extravagant head scarf and a large amount of jewelry.
