When it comes to an Indian wedding, sarees and lehengas are usually the favorites. A perfect blouse always builds the saree or the lehenga look. So, Indian winter wedding dresses need the accent of a sleeved blouse to enhance the glamor.

Lehenga with pockets

As the designers constantly keep on experimenting with various styles, the Indian bridal wear witnesses a lot of new trends every year. And, one such amazing variation in the traditional bridal wear that we saw in the recent past is the lehenga with pockets.

Isn’t that a really cool way to keep your hands warm during wedding? The best part of these outfits is that the addition of pockets does not diminish their beauty or elegance, and they look as glamorous as any other lehenga.


Royal jackets

There is off course no need to explain the warmth that a jacket can provide you. But, what you need to know is that you can wear a jacket even on your wedding and still look like a super-stylish bride.

While many brides prefer to keep the color of the jacket and lehenga to be almost similar, you can also go for a striking contrast between the two.

Mix And Match

You can also mix and match beautiful western tops in your wardrobe with ethnic outfits to create some out of the world Indian winter wedding dresses. Here are some fusion suggestions that will not fail to impress.

Warmth Of Anarkalis

Anarkalis with their long floor-grazing lengths, churidar pants and stole make for perfect Indian winter wedding dresses. Long sleeved, and collared or high neck, Anarkali’s are suitable for lower temperatures. The Anarkali look can be taken up a notch up with well-paired jackets or shawls.


Cover Up With Shawls

The Indian outfits like lehengas, anarkalis and salwar suits look incomplete without a stole. The stole can be replaced with beautiful shawls to stay warm during cold winter nights. You can also opt for heavier brocade or velvet stoles, which will keep the chills away.

A Karachi dupatta with woolen thread work will look mesmerizing, when thrown over any matched outfit. To add interest and warmth a beautiful Jamawar pashmina shawl with elaborate patterns, is also a great choice. Shawls are a great way to transform any outfit into Indian winter wedding dresses.

Warmer Fabrics

It is better to consider warmer fabrics like silk, satin, thick georgette or velvet for Indian winter wedding dresses. These fabrics will offer the needed warmth, giving equal regard to the festive look that you intend to put on. The dual benefit can also be achieved through fabrics like brocade for a winter wedding.

Even if you are opting for lighter fabrics like chiffon and net, feeling partial to their stunning cascade, ensure that the attire uses thick lining materials to keep you warm.

Western Inspired Fusion Outfits

Outfits with western silhouettes can also become picks for alluring winter wedding looks. Jackets or tunics with leggings, trousers or dhoti pants and long skirts paired with trendy winter blouses can become wonderful Indian winter wedding dresses.  Another great option would be floor length gowns with sufficient conceal on the top


Never wear open shoes as they are not a good option for winter weddings. If you have decided to go for western wear, then boots are your best bet for the climate. The other smart option for Indian wear is to wear a nice pair of pumps.

Don’t Forget Beauty Prep.

Chapped lips and dry skin are inevitable come winter. Keep your lips moisturized in the run up to the wedding (I highly recommend Elizabeth Arden’s 8 Hour Cream) use a good face moisturizer and have a chapstick in your clutch on the day.

Other ways of keeping warm

  • Wear a leg warmer underneath your lehenga to keep yourself warm. Just make sure you wear it slightly below your knee so that it is not visible to others when you lift your lehenga.
  • Keep a pair of socks close to you so that if during the ceremonies your feet are unbearably cold, you can immediately stop your body from losing any heat by wearing them.
  • Keep a shawl that goes with your outfit handy. And whenever you feel the chill, just wrap it around so as to feel the warmth.
  • Keep having warm drinks, such as tea or coffee as it will help you to maintain the normal body temperature.

For fashion to be sustainable, comfort and wearability play important roles and the Indian winter wedding dresses aim at optimizing these factors.
