Indian wedding dresses can vary in style depending on what region of India you are in. Even in other countries like Canada, where many Indian communities are quickly growing, you can see where women wear colors and styles synonymous with their regional and ethnic roots.


Traditionally, Indian women would wear elaborate and magnificent saris on their wedding day. Nowadays, women are looking for more modern and contemporary styles that still reflect their heritage and allow them to be beautiful and feminine. Alluring Indian wedding dresses such as lehenga cholis are in high demand, as it allows the bride to be sensuous and regal looking.


Younger Indian women are also now turning to salwar kameez for their wedding day attire as well. Indian dresses are available for all wedding ceremonial activities, from the sangeet party to the mehendi party. And, while red still remains the choice color for weddings, Indian women are bringing other colors to the table. Turquoise, yellow, rich greens and deep blues are all quickly becoming the new image of the modern day Indian bride.


There’s no need to sacrifice traditional wear for anything less than a jaw-dropping Indian dresses. The dress of your dreams is now just a mouse-click away. Cbazaar offers to-die-for wedding sarees, salwar kameez and Indian wedding dresses like gangra choli and lehenga choli, mesmerizing fish-cut lehengas. Wedding sarees are still beautiful and worthy piece attire, but women are now stepping outside the box and enjoy expressing themselves through an array of styles, colors and patterns.
