Maroon is a colour that represents excitement, passion, love, strength, confidence, warmth and beauty. This makes it the ideal colour for your bridal lehenga. If you don’t want to deviate too much from tradition, but you don’t want to go with the regular red or crimson, then this is an excellent option. The colour maroon is a popular choice with to-be brides because it never goes out of style. You cannot go wrong with a bridal outfit in this rich, gorgeous colour. Maroon gives a graceful and opulent look to any outfit, for it is the colour of royalty. A bride decked in a maroon wedding lehenga will stand out and look resplendent on her special day.
Maroon bridal lehengas come in a variety of shades and hues. You can choose from shades such as wine, currant, burgundy, cherry and many more. Maroon can be paired with a variety of colours to add to the beauty of your wedding outfit. Champagne gold, salmon pink, emerald green, midnight blue, sea green, orange are just some of the many colours that go well with maroon. You can have a maroon wedding lehenga with a contrast dupatta or a contrast blouse. You can even choose a contrast border on your outfit for a contemporary take on your beautiful bridal outfit.
It doesn’t necessarily have to be the colour of just your bridal or post-wedding outfits. You can also wear it for your sangeet or any other pre-wedding functions. It also doesn’t have to be heavily embellished. Floral prints are the current trend and impart a young and carefree look to the wearer. A floral print maroon lehenga can be worn for an evening function and even for a day-time occasion. A Benarasi lehenga in this rich colour is also a wonderful choice for a bride-to-be. All you need is the right wedding accessories and bridal jewellery.
Bridal lehengas in maroon are generally made in fabrics such as velvet, silk, satin or net. Brocade is also a very popular choice for bridal lehengas. They can be embellished with stones, zardozi work or other kinds of embroidery. The general perception is that those who want a more traditional look generally prefer maroon lehengas. However, maroon is a very rich and royal colour and the look that it gives depends on the styling of the lehenga. For example, for a more contemporary and indo-western look you can choose a corset style blouse or a fishtail lehenga.
Maroon is very versatile. Most types of jewellery goes well with these bridal lehengas. Rubies, garnets set in diamonds or gold are an excellent choice, as is gold temple jewellery.
