10 lehengas to pick from for your best friend’s destination wedding

If you haven’t bought your lehenga yet, have a look at these 10 lehenga sets that might just work for you!

The pandemic hasn’t affected your best friend’s wedding in terms of dates? You’re still looking for lehengas to wear at their wedding? Well, even if the novel coronavirus has changed the destination of your best friend’s wedding and it’s now in Maldives instead of Malibu, the truth is that you still need a lehenga! At your best friend’s wedding, since all eyes are on the bride, you gotta look your best because you’re almost always by her. So your lehenga needs to be the second best lehenga at the wedding, of course after her. Look no further, we’ve got you sorted!

If you thought lehengas always need to be an affair of couture, you may want to rethink your priorities. While it’s true that nothing can replace couture, what’s also true is that you may have to walk a lot in Maldives and dragging a heavy lehenga with you is going to be a task! Also not to forget that your body may just have more wine than water at this wedding. In that situation, you may want to opt for Punit Balana’s fuss free block printed lehenga, paired with a heavy gota work blouse and comes in a beautiful rapture rose colour or Ri Ritu Kumar’s peach and turquoise lehenga. Both may look heavy from a far but trust us, they’re super light to carry! When Tara Sutaria walked for Punit Balana at the Lakmé Fashion Week earlier this year, she said, “When you wear a lehenga, it can be difficult to walk and dance in. But wearing Punit’s clothes have always been very effortless and stylish at the same time. I think they’re simplistic and effective in their simplicity and that’s why I love to wear Punit Balana.”

But if you want to go the heavy lehenga way, the options are endless! Amit Aggarwal’s signature metallic flowy lehenga that comes in a beautiful fuchsia shade, Anushree Reddy’s classic lehenga set with intricately embroidered patterns and motifs, Torani’s blush pink silk organza and chanderi lehenga that brings forth old world charm and sophistication with a modern outlook, Jayanti Reddy’s short tunic lehenga set that comes with a unique style of two dupattas, Mrunalini Rao’s bright yellow raw silk lehenga with hand embroidered zardozi work and Sawan Gandhi’s stunning three-coloured lehenga with heavy and intricate work all over which comes with a stunning blouse, and is a standout among all – they’re all worth the investment!

And then there are lehengas between heavy and not-so-heavy. Tarun Tahiliani’s black printed chanderi lehenga with badla work and diamonds to highlight the print is exceptional! As is Anita Dongre’s emerald green lehenga that comes with her signature gota patti work detailed to the T!
