15+ Gorgeous Bridal Outfits We Found On Sonam Kapoor’s Wedding Guests!


You’ve seen plenty of best-dressed celeb lists for Sonam Kapoor – Anand Ahuja’s big fat Indian wedding. But if you’re a bride-to-be, you might have noticed that there was PLENTY of bridal fashion inspiration to take from what these celebrities wore! After all, they’re wearing designer labels from Sabyasachi to Manish Malhotra, the same designers’ brides wear to their very own wedding functions!

Here’s our round-up of which outfit you can wear to your wedding events:

16 Best Outfits for Brides

I. Mehendi

Neon green lehenga

Yes, you probably won’t pick Sabyasachi for your Mehendi, but the neon shade and light-weight embroidery makes it perfect for a smaller wedding function.

This is from Sabyasachi’s Spring Summer 2018 collection.

Organza Floral Lehenga

Karisma Kapoor in Sabyasachi

Yet another piece from the same Sabyasachi collection, this floral lehenga was styled perfectly by the actress – a statement choker and the right-sized maang tikka. It doesn’t need any more accessorizing. In fact, her entire look is so perfect (the makeup, accessories, hairstyle, outfit and draping) that you can copy it exactly as it is for your Mehendi (or even Sangeet) ceremony!

It’s the first lehenga here

White & Gold Lehenga With Neon Pink Blouse

If you’re looking for something simpler and lighter (on your pocket as well!) this Masaba Gupta lehenga with that bright pop of pink for a blouse is a great choice! A bride could accessorize with a head accessory (matha patti or maang tikka) and hand jewellery to make it more “bridal”.

Don’t think twice about wearing white to your Mehendi/Sangeet ceremony. Bride Sonam Kapoor has made it amply clear that it’s a good idea! Whether you like it or not, Indian brides in whites on their main wedding events is a trend that just keeps on getting bigger every year.

Chikankari All-White Lehenga

Even more white options for brides! Sneakers are optional 🙂

White Sharara with Multi-Coloured Floral Threadwork

And one last white recommendation for the bride to wear to her Mehendi. This one’s a sharara that has a nice touch of colour through the threadwork, and that dupatta with gold polka dots? The perfect addition!

II. Sangeet

If you’re going to stand out on your Sangeet in white, you might as well pick this! The embroidery on this lehenga is decadently beautiful.

II. Cocktail

Strapless Blouse & Embroidered Lehenga For Princess Vibes

While the exact colour of this outfit is hard to make out (looks rose pink in one photo, pale lavender in another), there’s one thing you can’t deny – it’s GORGEOUS. Designed by Pakistan-based Faraz Manan, it’s a piece that’s already on bridal lust lists everywhere. You can’t go wrong with this on any occasion, honestly, but it suits a Cocktail evening best.

Pastel Blue Lehenga With Multi-Layered Dupatta

Another option for a bride who wants to give off princess vibes in a sparkling pastel blue lehenga!

Navy Embroidered Lehenga

Arpita Mehta in her own Label

This is a colour most people associate with a cocktail event, and this piece is a great option for a fuss-free bride! You should, of course, add accessories to make it look more “bridal”.

III. Engagement/Roka

Silver Floor-Length Anarkali

It’s a simple Anarkali, that gets its bridal flavour from the heavy silver embroidery. Just drape a dupatta over one shoulder like Mrs. Bachchan, and you’re set to get engaged!

Baby Pink Lehenga

Kareena Kapoor Khan in Anita Dongre

This is such pretty pastel for your engagement. Add more jewellery and you’re set as a bride!

Star Motif Blush & Beige Lehenga with Off-Shoulder Blouse

Shanaya Kapoor in Tarun Tahiliani

Beautiful hairstyle for a wedding function (soft waves & baby’s breath in a floral half crown), star motifs embroidered all over the lehenga and a bright pout – everything about this look is steal-worthy for a bride! It’s not a typical loud style statement. It’s a subtle one, but it’s a style statement nevertheless.

IV. Wedding

A Pink Gota Patti Wedding Lehenga

Jacqueline Fernandez in Anita Dongre

While Jacqueline Fernandez wore this Anita Dongre lehenga to Sonam’s Wedding Day, the heavily embroidered pink lehenga is also perfect for a bride to wear to her wedding ceremony! It’s incredibly gorgeous, and for a bride who loves a bright pink lehenga, this is a great option.

Jahnvi Kapoor wore this killer multi-coloured lehenga by Manish Malhotra, that’s perfect for the bride who is having a day wedding. The hint of pastels combined with pops of candy colours makes it a unique and lust-worthy pick!

V. Reception

White Lehenga with Dramatic Cape Sleeves (Isabelle Kaif in Manish Malhotra)

Katrina Kaif’s sister wore this beautiful white lehenga that a bride with a modern taste in fashion would love. You have, of course, the option of going more modest with the blouse neckline, and adding diamond or contrasting emerald or blue sapphire jewellery to complete the look. We’re a big fan of the hairstyle, though, so maybe consider a messy ponytail like this as your Reception hairstyle!

Pastel Blue & Gold Lehenga

This was one of the most gorgeous, sober lehengas we spotted at Sonam Kapoor’s wedding. If pastel blue is a favourite colour of yours, we highly recommend this lehenga for your Reception evening!
