If there's one thing we love about desi weddings, it's the freedom to go OTT. However, provided the sweltering summer, we understand that an extravagant, fully crystal-embellished lehenga may not be everyone's cup of tea.
But rest assured, for you can still make a statement without compromising on your comfort by taking inspiration from these A-list Bollywood celebs. From Karina Kaif to Alia Bhatt, here’s how you can sport easy, breezy and oh-so-chic lehengas on your upcoming desi wedding adventures, courtesy of Pinkvilla.
This lehenga is lightweight and absolutely fabulous! We adore the cool blue colour scheme as well as the floral pattern, and we feel refreshed and lighter just looking at this fun, flowery outfit. You won't have to worry about sweating through your choli in this piece, and the cut is simple enough to be replicated without much hassle. So walk into your next wedding function feeling like a soft summer breeze, turning heads in this unique outfit! Accessorise with some chunky jewelry pieces to really elevate this look.
This pink, princess-y number has our hearts! The ruffled blouse adds uniqueness to this look, making it the perfect outfit if you want to go for a soft romantic look at your next wedding function. The floral pattern on the lehenga choli and the soft waves in Alia's hair give this look a youthful twist, and we are loving the little white bag she's carrying! Look and feel like the queen of summer weddings in this gorgeous outfit!
Okay, we know this is the third outfit with florals, but can you ever go wrong with flowery patterns in summers? We don't think so. We love how light the cloth is in this look, perfect for summer parties. Stay cool and collected while oozing elegance and sophistication in this powder pink number. We love Tara's glamorous waves and the fact that she's chosen to ditch any jewelry, really letting the outfit shine on its own!

You can still look regal without all the added extravagance of typical wedding outfits. Take a page from Kareena's book and look like a true maharani. We love the simplicity of this look, with the only added embellishments being the borders on the sleeves, lehenga and dupatta. If you're someone who doesn't enjoy light colours, this dark blue ensemble can be the perfect source of inspiration for you. The kohl-rimmed eyes and black metal choker-jhumki set keeps this look traditional, and you'll be sure to make a summer statement in this outfit.
So simple yet so incredibly gorgeous! Kiara looks as fierce as ever in this plain black lehenga choli, devoid of any and all embellishments and distractions. The choker and tied back hair really make this outfit shine, possibly making this one the most glamorous options on this list. The black tassels on the side of the waist really elevate this look, while keeping it super easy to replicate! The fact that she's gone low-key on the makeup is even better, letting the outfit stand on its own. This one is a must have for the summer wedding season!
