Here are the season’s top bridal wear collections—explore them and get your mood board ready so you can finalize your outfits on a single shopping expedition!  

#1. Sabyasachi – Sultana 

Every Indian bride dreams of wearing a Sabyasachi on her wedding, and the maestro’s latest collection is the millionth reason why. With stunning craftsmanship and styling, it simply transports you a Maharaja’s court. However, with a small wedding, if you’re not looking to splurge on the massive price tag, or are looking for something simpler, there are many inspirations you can take from the designer’s collection. 

What we love most: The color palette! From stunning turquoise to a rich olive, this collection features a unique palette that will totally make you stand out. An intimate wedding is a perfect place to deviate from the traditional reds and pinks and try one of these breathtaking shades for your outfit.

#2. Anita Dongre’s Trunk Show

Amidst the epidemic, the designer did a virtual trunk show, showcasing her collection for the season. The designer also encouraged brides to have video calls and online meetings to finalize the outfits. Her bridal wear collection included everything, from bridal couture to trousseau essentials and statement silver jewelry. 

What we love most: The use of print. Given the reduced scale of the celebration, most brides would want to avoid very heavily embellished outfits. Firstly, this satin lehenga with a floral print looks rich. Secondly, it is lightweight and impactful!

#3. Manish Malhotra – Taban

He’s the man who makes Bollywood dreams come true and if you’re the filmy bride, you have to have Manish Malhotra on your bridal wishlist. The designer launched his latest collection Taban on Instagram recently, and it’s truly as glamorous as we expected!

What we love most: Silver foiling. A trend that’s carried forward from last season, this foiled look not only adds glamour to your bridal wear but is also considerably lightweight. We love this modern alternative to traditional embellishment!

#4. Shyamal & Bhumika – Rhapsody in Spring

Known for their bridal couture, the designer duo’s latest collection is a sight for sore eyes. Embodying the colors and elements of spring, the collection is all about soft pastel hues combined with contemporary styling. 

What we love most: The modern silhouettes! This collection focuses more on statement cuts and styles to create an impact rather than on heavy embellishments. Given the smaller scale of the celebration, we think this is a winning idea!

#5. Ekaya Banaras – Heavenly Creatures 

The new collection by handloom luxury house Ekaya is breathtaking. Capturing the magic of twilight hours, the hand-woven Banarsi saris in this collection are something that must make it to every bridal trousseau. 

What we love most: The stars! This collection enhances the beauty of twinkling stars and reinterprets this classic design on all its pieces. And when the sky is overcast with troubles, much like this year, a shining star is always a good thing!
