It has almost been a year since our desi girl, Priyanka Chopra took the plunge and left us agape with her bridal look in a red, monochrome lehenga, but it’s still topping the bridal fashion charts for all the right reasons. Curated with exquisite thread-work, hand-cut organza flowers & some personalisations, the scintillating red bridal ensemble is indeed one of the finest by Sabyasachi. However, what stood out for us was how Priyanka embraced it with such finesse & elegance. In fact, she not only nailed her own look but also inspired a lot of other brides to take the same route & wear red in an ultra-mod fashion. And, guess what? It’s already a trend now! So, we line up today some of our favourite brides who took inspiration from the Priyanka-wala lehenga and looked like legit divas in their red, monotone lehengas.

Real Brides who rocked in their own version of Priyanka-wala Lehenga 

Real Bride 1: Megha

Megha made for a vision in her deep red, belted monochrome lehenga on her wedding day. She smartly fashioned her attire with a bunch of contrasting emerald and polki jewels and further let her makeup do the talking.

Real Bride 2: Vinita

Clad in an all-red, embroidered lehenga and a boat neck blouse, Vinita looked like a royal queen on her wedding. She accentuated her look with a scalloped dupatta pinned on her head and some sparkling jewels that layered her neck and hands beautifully. For the bridal hairdo, she opted for a voluminous, centre-parted bun and rounded off her look with a subtle base and nude lips.

Real Bride 3: Aman

Unlike other brides, Aman opted to go all bold and glamorous with her look. She let her luscious locks loose and sported an all-black smokey eye to go with her red applique lehenga. Coming to her jewellery, just like Priyanka, Aman too, picked the ever-raging polkis to pair with her look and gave us some major fashion inspo!

Real Bride 4:

This real bride struted in style, wearing a phenomenal monotone look on her wedding day and we can’t decide what we loved more! Her beautiful single-tone lehenga, those larger-than-life kaleeras or is it the spaced-out satlada? It’s hard to pick one because every element had its own charm. All in all, we adored her bridal look!

Real Bride 5: Randhawaa

We can’t stop ogling at our real bride Randhawaa’s refreshing wedding day look. She complimented her deep red, tone on tone lehenga with a pair of dainty jewels (*eyeing those pearl kaleeras*) and we were sold at the very first sight! Her glimmering red ensemble suited her pretty well, don’t you agree?

Real Bride 6: Jag

Real bride Jag's heavily laced blouse and patch-worked tulle lehenga is pure goals and must have caught everyone's attention, including ours. We totally loved how she fashioned it with a layered mathapatti and floral kaleeras, completing her look with bold cut crease eyes and glossy lips.

Real Bride 7: Pawan

This bride, dressed in Ejaaz Couture, was glowing on her big day and how! Her red lehenga was embroidered with a plethora of blooms & paisley patterns, and she literally exuded real maharani feels donning it. Whether it was the dazzling outfit, that heavy polki and emerald necklace, the opulent Sabyasachi belt or the quintessential red chooda, everything screamed royalty!

Real Bride 8: Kaajal

A prettily hand-worked peplum blouse with a voluminous embroidered lehenga skirt and a jaalidaar dupatta-now that's sheer elegance! Kudos to real bride Kaajal who brilliantly gave the Priyanka-wala lehenga a hep makeover and curated a brand new avatar altogether. She not only picked a distinctive blouse design but also added a few contrasting emeralds to her look. Swearing by a full-glam makeup, she further amped up her look with bold, red lips and bronzed cheeks.

Real Bride 9: Nav

Who says you can only wear red on your wedding day? Our real bride Nav proved it otherwise by donning a mesmerising red lehenga from Harkiran Basra on her reception bash. Now, all we can do is go gaga over her! She radiated in her monochrome lehenga like a red rose and accessorised her look with a diamond & emerald set.  

And some more monotone looks that you can give a try!

Go sans dupatta and make a dazzling appearance in a beateous threadwork, sequinned lehenga & blouse

Something as sultry as this plunging neck blouse, voguish lehenga skirt & sculpted dupatta for the reception!

Thigh high slits and a sweet-heart neck like this can definitely raise the oomph quotient!

How about this plain-jane bustier blouse and fully bedecked lehenga skirt for your engagement?

Lastly, an elegant threadwork lehenga skirt with a sculpted blouse for the minimalist brides!
