Years back, the traditional Indian wedding had no hint of the colour white, all because of the orthodoxy attached to it. However, times have now changed and the colour has now become a prominent part of modern Indian weddings.
Brides today are incorporating the colour white in their wedding outfits in so many different ways and we are loving it! After all these years of witnessing brides dressed in bright reds, yellows, and pinks, shades of white are like a breath of fresh air.
A lot of your favourite celebrities have been setting the trend recently and we thought their looks would serve as just the perfect inspiration for you if hunting for similar outfits. Here are some of our favourite picks.

Newly married, Natasha Dalal's pick for her day-mehendi ceremony was a white lehenga which came with intricate embroidered gold micro florals with accents of pastel pink and lilac. Her blouse had crystal tassel on the sleeves. Natasha Dalal's mehendi outfit was completed with a sheer dupatta. She rounded off her look with a statement gold necklace with pastel pink stone drops, matching jhumkas, and maang tika.
