Top 21 Monochrome Lehengas For Your Wedding Ceremonies

Aug 25, 2022

Where brides are becoming more and more experimentative with their bridal outfits, with color variations, silhouettes, and fabrics, on the other side monochrome lehengas are also making a slow comeback. First, let us go through what Monochrome is, well, mono means single, and chrome means color; 'single color'. It means something in a single-shade or hue. When it comes to bridal outfits, most of the new-era brides try to go with a blend of shades, and somewhere the use of a single shade for a bridal outfit went out of choice. But when our desi girl, Priyanka Chopra Jonas wore an all-red Sabyasachi-designed outfit for her Indian wedding ceremony and looked ethereal, monochrome started making a comeback with a blast.

Most Beautiful Monochrome Lehengas

If you are the one to think that single shade outfits are boring or monotonous to look at, let us show these monochrome outfits that look nothing, but stunning and serve as an inspiration to those looking to accentuate their bridal outfit design in a single hue.

Very-Peri might be the Pantone color of this year, but as mostly seen, ivory is the color of the year for brides who are open to experiments. Almost every bride has included ivory in her bridal trousseau, be it for pre-wedding ceremonies or post-wedding ceremonies. Do not confuse this color with white as ivory is more of an off-white color.

We have seen brides wearing an all-ivory outfit and totally loved them. You can also take inspiration from the new Bollywood bride, Alia Bhatt who rocked an ivory-colored saree for her wedding day and looked every inch of a royal bride, especially given the captivating jewelry.

As we mentioned earlier, red is a classic color and you cannot go wrong with a red bridal outfit. Whether it is the matte red lehenga, the gold worked lehenga, or the sequinned lehengas, red can conquer all. Red being the auspicious color in the South Asian community, is an integral part of weddings.

To make your red bridal outfit stand out, go for contrasting jewelry pieces like gold temple jewelry, diamond jewelry, or green polkis with kundans - this will look stunning. 

We loved this bride who wore a red monochrome lehenga with minimal work for her wedding day. 

11. Butter Yellow

Love the color yellow, but do not want it to be vibrant yellow? How about this pastel shade of yellow like butter yellow for your wedding ceremonies? Take a cue from the influencer Shloka who chose this beautiful lehenga for one of her wedding events and looked ethereal. 

You can wear this lehenga for your Haldi, Mehndi, Sangeet, or even for your wedding if it's a day event. For a bridal look, add heavy gold jewelry, red/maroon choora (if it's a Punjabi wedding), and customized kaliras. You can choose to leave your hair open, braid them with mogras or marigold flowers or go for a classic bun. 

12. Royal Blue

Named after a fruit, orange is a perfect color for the bride who does not want to go for the classic - red or pink but still wants to wear something similar. Orange is usually known to draw attention because of its unique and bright color. This shade is also associated with excitement, enthusiasm, and warmth. Have a look at this bride wearing an orange lehenga that looks so minimal but at the same, absolutely stunning.

Grey is a very unpopular wedding outfit color but would look great if you are a bride who love to go a non-traditional route. Recently, we have seen brides rocking this color and looking absolutely classy and chic. 

This color is not given the same appreciation as other popular shades like red, pink, and orange, but still a very unique choice for someone who wants to experiment with their bridal look. You can choose to wear this color for your mehndi, sangeet, wedding day, or even reception night - it will look great for any event. 

15. Love Lavender

Lavender is one of the most refreshing and romantic colors we have come across and this shade in a bridal outfit looks elegant. This is that one shade that brides are ditching the brighter shades for and we get why. The soothing ness of this color is something else and it looks dreamy as well as a monochrome lehenga, this is one of the lighter shades that will stun everyone with its elegance and softness.

16. Teal Blue

This shade of blue is trending for all the right reasons. It can almost give you the illusion of a darker green shade but if looked closely, it is blue. You can either go for plain silk or satin fabric lehenga and pair it with some statement jewelry to stand out. You can also choose a teal blue lehenga with small motifs and a sheer dupatta with a border. This color will give a regal touch to your bridal avatar and will also look perfect for a reception night.

17. Blush Pink

You can never have too many pinks!

The color pink has too many shades and each shade is a story in itself. We have often seen brides being sure that they want to wear pink on their big day, but they are confused about which pink. There are many shades of pink to choose from - baby pink, strawberry pink, hot pink, fuchsia pink, but if you are getting married in the day, one of our recommended shades would be - Blush Pink. 

We have witnessed a lot of brides, especially Sikh brides opting for this color for their wedding ceremony, and there is something so gentle and elegant about this color that one cannot go wrong with it.

We are sure, this shade of pink will only add beauty to your dream wedding!

Monochrome lehengas or single-shade color is not boring, you need to get a few things correct to make the ensemble look outstanding and Pinterest-worthy. Factors like if you are selecting silk as a fabric and blue as a color, then you need to figure out what shade of blue would be a perfect match for the silk fabric because believe it or not, with every fabric, shades of color change. The look of sky blue cotton saree and sky blue silk Anarkali would look different from each other.

When you finalize the fabric and shade, the next step is deciding on the silhouette of your whole outfit. Whether you want to go with a heavily single-layered lehenga or tripled-layered, or do you want to add more fabric like a net fabric to go over the top with stones to make it look more glam, sleeves of the blouse, necklines, etcetera - there are loads of things to tick through to get that perfect monochrome lehenga of your dreams. But in the end, you will look confident and stunning with the elements you chose, so do not hesitate and definitely do not come under peer pressure of following what everyone is saying. This is your day, so the selection of outfits should also be yours.
