Wow! Congratulations your Shaadi is planned, Are you confused about the colour of your bridal lehenga? So here I am to help you select right colour lehenga for the brides of wheatish, dusky or any Indian skin tone. 

Any bride can get confused when it comes to select her bridal lehenga according to her skin tone. After all, it is all about her bridal look. 

Dusky brides are drop-dead gorgeous, and they can slay effortlessly by choosing the right colour lehenga. Certain colours complement Indian brides of dusky skin tones more than the other shades.  

Bridal Lehenga Colours That will Compliment Your Dusky Look 

So if you’re a dusky bride finalizing her bridal lehenga, take a look through the lehenga colour guide below.

 The Ever Adorable by all Indian Brides- Red


Mostly, brides prefer red for their D- day. I ‘d suggest avoiding a bright red, or a tomato red lehenga for that would overdo the thing. Look for other hues of solid maroons or if you can’t think off red, do it with a tinge of orange and stay happy.
