Many Choices for Southeast Asian Bridal Wear

A wedding is the most sought-after special day in a woman’s life and girls dream of this special day with much desire and expectation. Wedding attire is one of the main players in a Southeast Asian wedding. As the event nears, though, it becomes more and more difficult for the soon-to-be bride to decide what to wear.

The brides of Bangladesh, India and Pakistan wear sarees, lehenga, sharara, and lately gown-type dresses at their weddings. For centuries, red has been the predominant colour for bridal wear in these regions, but the latest trends in bridal attire around Southeast Asia include a great variety of bridal styles and colours. Enjoy this gorgeous collection of photographs of the latest bridal lehenga designs and other bridal couture.

Bridal Wear in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan

Bangladesh. Brides of Bangladesh traditionally wore wedding sarees in shades of red. But the bridal scene in Bangladesh is changing, and lehengas, shararas and even fusions of western and eastern wedding gowns can be seen adorning the brides of Bangladesh.

India. It's difficult to generalize about Indian brides. Historically, brides of different regions of India wore different attire. Brides of Bengali origin, in Kolkata and South India, wore sarees at their weddings more often than not, while brides from more metropolitan areas like Bombay often wear lehengas at their weddings.

Pakistan. Pakistani brides generally wear gorgeous bridal shararas (a type of lehenga with a long upper blouse) or heavily embellished salwar kameez at their weddings.

Common to all three countries is their love of zari work, stone work, zardozi, and other embellishment. Bridal attire in Southeast Asian countries is a grand affair. Bright colours are traditionally preferred, as a sign of happiness, but lately pale colours and pastels have been a trend.

Different Styles of Lehenga Skirts

A lehenga is three separate pieces of clothing: the skirt, the blouse and the dupatta (a big shawl-like piece of material that drapes over the head of the bride).

A bridal lehenga comes in different shapes nowadays; it is no longer just a skirt with lots of gathering. Lehenga skirts come in the following shapes:

  • Traditional circle-cut lehenga skirt. These are flowing and voluminous skirts, very beautiful on brides of medium build and height. Full skirts generally look more "bridal" than narrow or mermaid-cut skirts, and have more options for embellishment.
  • Straight-cut lehenga skirt. These skirts fall straight from the waist to the hemline at the feet.
  • A-cut lehenga skirt. As the name suggests, these skirts are in the shape of an “A,” tapered from a narrow beginning. They create a beautiful silhouette.
  • Mermaid-cut or fish-cut lehenga skirt. Mermaid-cut or fish-cut bridal lehengas are very “in” in bridal couture, and they look exceptionally gorgeous on tall and fit brides. These lehenga skirts create a very sexy hourglass silhouette.

Bridal Lehenga Blouse Styles

Indian Brides tend to pair wedding lehengas with short blouses which reveal the midriff and navel of the bride. Bangladeshi and Pakistani brides wear a lehenga with a long blouse covering the stomach area. Pakistani brides take the lehenga to the next level, called a sharara, a type of lehenga with a longer blouse, a knee-length or longer kameez-type shirt.

Fabrics Used to Make Bridal Lehenga

Lehengas are made with a variety of fabrics, such as net, chiffon, georgette, silk and even velvet. Velvet skirts became popular in bridal couture recently because of the deep shades that can only be achieved in velvet material. Bridal lehengas are heavily embellished with beads, sequins, zarodozi work, patchwork, and zari embroidery.
