If you’re a bride-to-be then India Couture Week 2016 must've felt like heaven. All anybody could talk about was the grand ensembles that flounced down the runway. Once a year, a select number of Designers (like Manish Malhotra, VIVA-LUXE Designer Anita Dongre, Gaurav Gupta and Tarun Tahiliani), get to show us just how luxurious their clothing can get, and it all comes out in the form of exquisite bridal finery. From sarees and anarkalis to lehengas and suits, there’s a whole lot to choose from.

 

So if you are about to tie the knot, or even attend an elaborate wedding, here are 5 sarees and 5 lehengas from India Couture Week that you’ just have to hunt out!

Anamika Khanna’s experimental and edgy style is something we look forward to every season. Her saree gown paired with a jacket to match is definitely a keeper.

Varun Bahl stayed true to his love for all things nature and presented a ‘Vintage Garden’ for Couture Week. Since that floral trend isn’t going anywhere, this is one you’ll find yourself wearing over and over again.

He’s on every bride’s wish list and the lehengas Manish Malhotra showcased at ICW were to die for, as expected. Deepika Padukone’s off-shoulder blouse is definitely something we love right now as it's so on trend.

Reynu Taandon and Rimple & Harpreet Narula added that contemporary factor in the form of a cool drape to their otherwise traditional lehengas.

If you’re a bride who likes doing things a bit differently, Gaurav Gupta’s ‘Scape Song’ is a collection you need to see. We loved the structured jacket he paired with his lehenga instead of a conventional dupatta.

Manav Gangawani’s showstopper, Kangana Ranaut walked out in a gorgeous, glimmering lehenga and yet another off-shoulder blouse to match. It’s safe to say the trend is here to stay!
