Amongst the most traditional Indian attire for women the bridal lehngas are important. Some communities have special ones that are made days in advance before the wedding. Ideally the girl will prefer to select a bridal lehnga herself as she will be wearing it and it should honor the solemn occasion. There are many events that lead up to the wedding day for the bride. She has a choice of wearing the most diverse kinds of lehngas for each event. Of course the one that she wears on the wedding day will be the most elaborate. Since the new generation of girls like a touch of contemporary color and cut, she is likely to choose the beautiful mermaid cut for the ring ceremony. It is doing very well in the section of bridal lehngas. For the main day she can choose one that has hand embroidery and sequin work. The bride chooses red or maroon as it is a fertile color for the Hindu bride. Now for the ring ceremonies and the receptions girls are choosing pink, orange, green and indigo blue. While the customs and rituals remain the same the styles of bridal lehngas have evolved. They no longer come with long sleeves. Short sleeves are common too.
With the emergence of new designs, girls are proving that they can handle the traditional with the modern. They are also not willing to exchange their Indianness despite adopting western influences in their clothing. This innovativeness has made bridal lehngas popular.
