We get it, the shine of the customary red lehenga is unmatchable, but if you are a bride who is looking for a subtle upgrade, then you are in the right path. No, we don’t mean matching your lehenga blouse with hot shorts but going for a slightly untrodden path as far as wedding day lehengas are concerned. Sure, we love the intensity of a red one, but have you ever wanted to wear white on your D-day? Chances are, even if you had always wished to, there would be some or the other person telling you about the age-old taboo related to it. “It is considered inauspicious”, “It won’t suit your skin tone”, “Brides don’t wear white, not if she is wearing a lehenga”, we are sure you have heard it all, and if you in for challenging the status quo of the society and wouldn’t mind experimenting with white, then here are 5 white lehenga inspirations, that you’ll love. Psst… they are all worn by real brides!

Plus, it can be worn as a separate with other solid coloured hues too.
