Wedding Lehgna Style | Bridal Lehnga Designs in Gold Colors and Tones
The color gold has always been associated with wealth and royalty due to the expensive metal that it mirrors. It used to be that only royalty would wear gold colored clothings, some of the clothings would be embroidered using actual gold threads. But today that has changed, and gold clothings are accessible anyone willing to spend money on it!
You will want to be picky when choosing your gold colored wedding outfit. Certain gold tones on different materials will take on a different look - you do not want a gaudy, or tacky gold wedding dress outfit! Always be sure to check the wedding dress outfit in natural light, and under artifical light so that you can see how it looks to the eye under different lighting situations.
This article focuses on bridal lehnga designs of a gold toned color. When in doubt, gold is a great color choice for your bridal outfit. This is because gold is a universal color; gold looks great on everyone regardless of their skin complexion - fair, tanned or dark.

This is a great example of an exquisite bridal lehnga that is really lovely. The gold is of a muted tone, and the contrast embroidery makes the outfit stand out. There is not much heavy stone work on the light silk material, so the outfit is not excessively heavy to wear. A perfect wedding outfit that a bride can wear for her dinner reception where she will be taking lots of photos with her family, friends and guests.
This is a modest bridal lehnga with long sleeves. It is an outfit that is suitable for Muslim women of South Asian descent. The top piece is a long blouse, and almost all of the embroidery work is on the blouse. The skirt is a full one with a small border at the hemline. This is a demure look that I rather like. It is not as flashy as most Indian bridal lehngas today are, but this one is very suitable for a Muslim nikkah ceremony where religious sentiments of modesty have to be considered.
This bridal lehnga has a contrast look - a gold full skirt and a golden veil, with a lovely sea-green choli (short blouse). This is a good example of how it is possible to add different colors into your gold toned bridal lehnga. Usually, contrast embroidery is used throughout on the gold material (as in the first picture), or embroidery, stone work on the blouse and borders of the skirt.
If you think having too much embroidery is much too gaudy or ostentious for your liking (today's brides seem to prefer a demure and elegant look), then you can limit your embroidery and stone work to the blouse piece, as seen in the above picture of the sea-green bridal lehnga.
