The celebration of this ceremony depends totally upon the whims and fancies of the groom’s side.

Take a look at this mustard and pink embroidered lehenga set.The silk fabric adds vibrant to the outfit. You could accessorize this look with Kundan jewelry. Proper fit will make the fabric look exquisite.

Ethnic gown
Empire line dress/ gown silhouettes with ethnic impressions are what brides these days are willing to do. The runway designers such as Anita dongre, Anamika Khanna and Sabyasachi are all putting these ideas in their looks and thus creating a magical dress with Indian weaves.
