Reinventing Pink with Indian Wedding Dresses

Pink is one of the forever colours for Indian wedding dresses. The charismatic charm of pink lehengas makes it a sweet combination of traditional and chic.

However, over the last few years, more brides are opting for off-beat colours like green, ivory and blue. The colour has also gained a reputation for being “too mainstream.”

That’s where we beg to differ.

A versatile colour like pink has a varied range of hues starting from blush pink, coral pink to bright fuchsia. How can it be mainstream?
