If you’ve been to a wedding recently, you’ve noticed it. The clothes are changing. Bright colours & anarkalis have given way to tassels and shararas, and greys and whites. If you’re still in last season’s clothes, it’s time to revamp your wedding wardrobe.
Whether you’re getting married in 2018 or attending a wedding this year, take inspiration from what the top bridal wear designers in the country showcased at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2018.
There were a lot of whites, minimalism, frills, the use of silk, flowing lehenga skirts etc, and a stray from heavy designs. Here is the best of Lakme India Fashion Week for brides to add to their trousseau and for wedding guests to pick pieces from.
#1 Anita Dongre
Her Songs of Summer collection was incredible. So many great picks for a summer bride’s Mehendi & Sangeet! And lehengas for the sister of the bride or groom.
#2 Ridhi Mehra
Her Cinco collection, with its frills, ruffles and faux fur, is definitely for the modern bride and fashion-forward bridesmaid.
#3 Anushree Reddy
If you just HAVE to wear red or pink, she’s your go-to designer!

#4 Jayanti Reddy
With a modern colour palette, her collection is perfect for the bride and bridesmaid who want to make a fashion statement.
Known for their spin on chikankari, Meera & Muzzafar Ali continued their streak with a gorgeous bridal wear collection. We loved what Sushmita Sen wore the most – an elegant bridal look!
This designer’s forte is minimal yet festive outfits. Perfect for wedding guests!
#7 Gaurang Shah
Known for his saris, Gauran Shah gave us some pretty options on the runway. This pastel blue pick was our favourite for brides to add to their trousseau.

#8 Shyamal & Bhumika
Kangana Ranaut walked the ramp for this show, and we found some pieces that would work great for a Cocktail and Reception.

#9 Payal Singhal
She’s on every bridesmaid’s Top 5 designer’s list. This season, she gave us greys and pale blues with a generous dose of silver in Indian wear to love.
#10 SVA by Sonam
Two words for their collection – insanely gorgeous! Bridesmaids will find a ton of great options here, but these 3 were are absolute favourites.
#11 Shloka Sudhakar
We loved the colour-blocked pastel lehenga! It’s a great choice for a bride to wear on her Mehendi, or for the sister of the bride or groom to wear on one of the smaller functions.
#12 AARBEE by Ravi Bhalotia
Karisma Kapoor gave us #WeddingGoals with this one! The friends of the bride and groom can easily wear this on one of the wedding events.
#13 Punita Balan
Red + Sharara = another stunner we loved! Wear this to your bestie’s wedding.
#14 Ashwini Reddy
For a younger cousin to wear on her big sister/brother’s wedding.
We hope that we’ve at least made some part of your job easier, with a peek into the latest wedding fashion trends for 2018!
ProTip: While creating your bridal trousseau, go for unique outfits and remember that you want a variety of different outfits, even if you have to ditch some of your favourites because they might end up looking too similar. The same concept applies to creating your wardrobe to attend weddings in 2018!
