But usually, it’s a gorgeous golden lehenga with golden and stone jewellery, making the bride look like a million-dollar doll. This look can also vary from absolutely heavy and regal to modern and light.
Gold goes with all skin tones, but if you are on the duskier side, or have a warm skin tone, this look is going to look a whole different level of amazing on you, so don’t forget to consider this option!
The Pastel Bride
This look, as it suggests consists of pastel outfits. Pastel colours like powder blue and lavender are becoming increasingly popular as bridal colours. This colour palette gives a light and airy vibe, making the bride look youthful, bright, soft and heavenly. 2021 has been seeing a lot of pastel brides, as people have started to realise the magic of these outfits.

This look is for all those brides who aren’t afraid to experiment a little with colours and rock bright and beautiful colours that aren’t typically part of bridal wear.
