How many times have you scrolled through Instagram looking for the perfect wedding ensemble or to choose the most fabulous bridesmaid outfit for your friend’s wedding? While the season’s favourite continues to be the sacred red, sometimes skipping the regular vermilion hue can help you elevate the glamour of wedding festivities. 

Scintillating golds are viewed as a passport to accent wedding wear through threads and details. However the hue is not just limited to enhancing the garment, wedding lehengas in glistening gold have turned into an acquired taste among the masses. Thanks to celebrities, this statement-making tone for the wedding season makes quite an awe-grasping look.

It should come as no surprise that sparkly and metallic golden lehengas are the memo of this year’s wedding festivities. Sometimes, a high-shine lehenga comprising a bralette blouse, voluminous skirt, and dupatta—and adorned with intricate craftsmanship—is how you can reinforce modern femininity. If you don’t believe us, just take a look at Ananya Panday in a Kresha Bajaj set that she wore for Armaan Jain and Anissa Malhotra's wedding reception.

While glittering lehengas are always a mainstay, weaved golden lehengas - imagined in Benarasi or Jamdani fabrics with applique work and zari make for a nuanced wedding ensemble. Invest in an understated lehenga set that you can pair with just about anything. Aditi Rao Hydari in this Sailesh Singhania muted gold lehenga at Lakme Fashion Week 2019 gave use goals.
