12 Anarkali, Suits and Sharara Designs for brides who want to ditch lehengas this wedding season!

12 Anarkali, Suits and Sharara Designs for brides who want to ditch lehengas this wedding season!

Gone are the days when brides limited their trousseau to lehengas and sarees. Brides have found alternatives to these for their wedding ceremonies and I could not be happier (at least for sometime)! With anarkalis, suits, ghararas and shararas flooding the wedding outfit scene, I found a plethora of these stunning outfits donned by brides.


Not only are these easier to pull off, apparently lighter and probably more comfortable; they give the bride an unconventional look altogether. Also, if you are thinking these will fail to accentuate your silhouette or you cannot experiment much with them, I am pretty sure these pictures will burst your bubble BIG TIME!! Brides are not only adorning these timeless ethinic outfits on smaller functions, but are also choosing to wear them at their wedding.


Here’s a list of trending anarkali, suit and sharara designs, which you could take major inspo from:


1. Baby pink anarkali

This sikh bride has adorned a gorgeous baby pink anarkali with a mix of silver and gold embellishments. A perfect pick for your afternoon wedding ceremony!


2. Mint green sharara set

Celebrity fashion stylist, Tanya Vohra, wore this drool-worthy mint green sharara set by Sabyasachi Mukherjee and I am majorly crushing over it!! Love the offbeat hue, the tiny floral embroidery and the gold zari work.


3. Dusty ivory and grey anarkali

Not only did this beautiful bride choose an offbeat style, she also picked an offbeat colour. I am head over heels seeing the heavy embroidery work on her lehenga and the fact that she paired her outfit with a contrasting maroon dupatta.


4. Maroon velvet sharara

For her sufi night, prior to the wedding, the gorgeous bride donned a classy and opulent-looking maroon velvet sharara, paired with dramatic jewellery!


5. Red and gold sharara

For brides who want to adorn an anarkali or sharara and still keep it OTT, this could be an ideal pick!! A dark red sharara with heavy embroidery, classy jewellery and a matching potli purse is a delight to the eyes.


6. Pink and Gold angarkha

You don’t see many bride flaunting this type of bridal outfit, do you? I am super-impressed with this bride’s choice of a bougainvillea pink and dusky gold kalidaar angarkha with gold embellishments.


7. Silver shimmery anarkali

For the bride who wants something blingy, THIS IS IT!!!

A silver, shimmery outfit, which is an instant head-turner and you just cannot miss it.


8. Royal blue anarkali

I am super-duper WOWWWWWED by this royal-blue anarkali with heavy embroidered work, especially the large elephant motifs adding the traditional touch! Not to miss the tinge of pink and green in the outfit to break the monotony!!


9. Mango-coloured angarkha

For an afternoon wedding ceremony, you can definitely choose to go in for a lighter colour, like this mango-coloured angarkha. I love the fact that it has the right amount of bling, owing to the pretty silver embellishments and the gota patti work. She has paired it with purple sharara pants and the dupatta has a pretty ombre of mango, orange, and purple.


10. Baby pink sharara set

For her mehendi ceremony, this bride wore a baby pink sharara set- with a short embroidered top and flared pants!! She paired this with some minimalistic floral jewellery.


11. Cream and red sharara set

This bride chose to adorn a cream and red embroidered sharara set for her mehendi ceremony and I am floored by her choice. If you are a bride-to-be who is looking out for something sober and chic for your mehendi, you can certainly zero-in on this one.


12. Multi-coloured punjabi suit

If you want to stick to something beautiful and elegant yet not too OTT, you can go in for this ehtnic embroidered suit. It is a vibrant and classy pick for the modernistic bride!!


Are y’all ready to twirl in these gorgeous ethnic outfits?
