A traditional Indian bride wears predominantly red; nevertheless, the fashion industry has defied several wedding traditions. The next big step for most actresses has been to abandon red in favor of white colors. We are now witnessing modern brides boldly wearing white wedding gowns. 

Hindu customs prohibit new brides from donning white for the first year following their nuptials. But, modern brides are defying convention and choosing peaceful white for their wedding celebrations. White hues are timeless colors that exude sophistication and elegance while remaining incredibly fashionable. Let’s look at some famous Bollywood brides who choose to wear white lehengas on their wedding day.

Ananya Panday’s sister Alanna recently tied a knot with his long time boyfriend Ivor McCray. Alanna opted for a non-traditional look, opting for a stunning white chikankari lehenga ensemble by Manish Malhotra, which became the focal point of the event. The outfit consists of a blouse, a lehenga skirt, a dupatta, and a veil. The choli, on the other hand, has a plunging neckline with delicate chikankari embroidery, sequin embellishments, and a fitted breast. Alanna accessorized the wedding appearance with a similar chiffon veil and an embroidered net dupatta.
