    Dhulhan's lehanga

    Guys!!
    I just dont understand why is it Red or Pink (Dhulhan's lehenga). Why can't there be a different color? On Valima i have seen different colors. But on Baraat its always Red. why?
    Life became all Gray! But NOW i have decided to paint it all over again.

          Nia, they can wear any colour in this day, there's no hard and fast rule, although red is still the preffered colour. I've seen brides wearing a bronzy/brown colour, or red with lots of green.

            It really depends on whats the IN colour at the time - years and years ago it was horrible flurosent Pink or sureece (s/p)

            Then it was sort of blood red ..

            Now its more Maroon - Gold and Maroon was in for a while..

            I have seen Blues and Greens too...

            Personally I dont think Asian brides suit the white english style wedding dress!

            One wedding I went to the bride wore a lovely sea blue - turqoishy (firozi) coloured lehenga - that was gorgeous!!

            I Think I'd wear Maroon & Gold myself..

              OK, do you wnat to know the real reason behind wearing red? Well one of my lecturers was once talking to me about the link between colour and symbolism. Red is meant to symbolise the virgin blood on the wedding night. Bet u'll not ask that question again in a hurry

              So, verily, with every difficulty, there is relief:

                It may have been to hide bloodstains. But I think tah the colour red had a lot of symbolism behind it. Red is considered a happy colour - think of teh alternatives!

                White is considered a symbol of purity in western culture, but in the east is represents, in many cultures, the concept of a void. Black is also not considered a festive colour. As far as I know the various shades of red are all considered festive or auspicious, but other colours are also accepted and sometimes preferred. I have seen brides wearing just about any colour... so I guess that it is basically dictated by tradition.

                    I assume that lehanga is a gharara or sharara type of thing that bride wears on wedding day.

                    I remember my aunt wearing cream colour gharara on her wedding day. I really don't know the reason why they have to wear red. Perhaps, it is to make the guys aware of the danger coming ahead.

                      Both my Bhabhies wore brownish/Goldish colors!

                      Red sure has been the one used mostly ... but I think the trend is changing.

                          Trends come and go, what stays is classic traditional colours and outfits. As Mem mnetioned t/ trend about Hot (ugly) pink eons back!

                          Red will always be t/ colour of bride, as white is and will be t/ colour for Western brides, eventho styles may vary w/ t/ passage of time.

                          Red for wedding and golden are my favourite. My sis-in-law wore Red for wedding and a beautiful aqua blue on her Valima. It was winter and t/ colour went very well according to t/ weather!

                            I never really payed attention much... My cousin's wife was wearing a blue lenga on their wedding day. I know of a few people who wore white lengas.

                            Hm...wats with lengas n e ways?? Can't we women wear a classic shalwar kameez and look elegant and bride-ish all at the same time??

                              Well the Lehnga could be yellow and with golden phool bootay ....Lady is gonna wear it only once in her life time.

                              The question should be why does it have to be so expensive? Lets hear some justifications....
