Fabrics: The greater preference seemed to be for natural and organic fabrics including silks and chiffons. The luxury element in fabrics was continued with more vibrant colors of velvet like mint or olive green and bright turquoise lehengas as opposed to the deeper shades like maroon, black and midnight blue being used before.
Colors: While red did seem to appear again inspired by Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra Jonas's red wedding lehengas, the pastel trend continued and went a step ahead with all white, blush and desert rose shades.
Another new color trend that made its presence felt was vibrant multi colored outfits whether it was about sarees or lehengas. Multi colored outfits seemed to be resurfacing after a bit of a hiatus last year.
Embellishments: Embroidery in vivid colors rode the multi colored trend. While sequins and zaree were not surprisingly ubiquitous, silk thread embroidery with chunky semi precious stones added as embellishments was the new addition.
Motifs: The floral trend was omnipresent and it made an appearance in neutrals, multi colors and in a variety of styles including traditions Mughal motifs to more modern and simple flower motifs.
Silhouette: The big winner this year was the saree and there were several versions of this silhouette that did the rounds as pre-draped, pre-stitched and ready to wear sarees. Ruffled sarees, florals and new drapes adorned this timeless outfit giving it a completely new and desirable avatar altogether.
Mood: The themes were both serious and luxury oriented with muted colors as well as vibrant and bohemian for the unabashed bride.
Styling: Customization was a continuing trend with new additions inspired by Priyanka Chopra Jonas's Ralph Lauren wedding gown that had personalized embroidery and even a piece of her mother in law's wedding gown sown into it.
The wedding lehenga finally became a document of symbols for people and memories special to the bride.
Jewelry: The chunky jewelry trend went up a few notches with most jewelry houses displaying over the top jewelry with large chunky diamonds or emeralds being some of the most popular designs that gained favour among the show attendees.
