With the ever-evolving times and constantly changing wedding trends, more and more brides are becoming mindful and particular about their choices. They are picking outfits that are subtle, breathable and can let them frolic around with ease. And while we do observe a serious shift towards more comfortable and easy-to-carry bridal fashion, we still end up bumping into brides all bedecked in those overly-embellished, heavy lehengas, who instantly take our hearts on a spin. Yes, that’s the thing about heavy lehengas. They may seem too OTT to some, but it’s true that their quintessence and charm is unmatched. And for those who don’t want to get bogged down by their weight yet infuse a hint of royalty in their wedding day look, can always tick and trick by picking options & fabrics that are light but visually heavy at the same time. Sorted, much?

Well, till the time you decide what’s best for you and what’s not, we put across for you our favourite real brides who sported stylish heavy lehengas on their wedding. Take a deep breath and get ready to save as much inspo as you can!
