The Maroon Bridal Lehenga is a ‘secret stealer choice’ when it comes to wedding lehenga choices for any bride. While most might steer clear of this colour, nevertheless, did you know that it is one of the best colours that compliment the gorgeous Indian Olive skin tone to the T?
Maroon lehenga is also my personal favourite. Somehow, it bought out the bridal glow in me like never before, and the gold jewellery sparkled all the more, thus, enhancing my overall bridal look.
The Maroon Bridal Lehenga is not a new concept; it has been around for quite some time. You might have remembered your mother or grandmother referring to the colour as ‘Katha’.
Not, too long ago, it was the most sought-after colour for the choice of lip shade and nail paint. Eventually, the bridal colour choice shifted to Pastels and Mauve. Now, we the ‘bridal brights are back with a bang’. This includes the likes of Green, Reds, Orange, Yellows, Blue, and yes, the Maroon.
So, now that you have decided upon the Maroon Bridal Lehenga colour, what designs, fabrics, and styles is it going to be? Well, here are our top suggestions to choose from:

Velvet Maroon Bridal Lehenga
This is a classic choice and has been bookmarked in the ‘myMandap Lookbook’. It is ‘the’ choice when it comes to planning a Winter wedding. This look comprises the Maroon Bridal Lehenga attire with gold jewellery.
The Maroon Bridal Lehenga creation is voluminous with a nice broad border in Gold. This offers a Vintage meets ‘Mughal-inspired’ design where you get to flaunt the best of both worlds.
The detailed embroidery on the lehenga fabric is intricate and delicate while covering the entire surface.
Likewise, you can either opt for a Solid blouse fabric or something with gold work all over. The Dupatta is a whimsical creation with a thick border and ‘large Polka’ design in Gold all over.
Chaniya Choli Maroon Bridal Lehenga
This is the quintessential ‘Kali’ model in the lehenga which comprises multicoloured embroidery in an otherwise Maroon fabric. This is a baroque-style Chaniya choli and resonates with most cultures in the country.
This Indian ethnic wear design comprises a beautiful solid blouse with long sleeves. However, the simplicity of the blouse is balanced with the broad border in gold at the sleeves that is in sync with that of the one on the Maroon Bridal Lehenga.
Here, we go with the contrast net dupatta with a border that comprises multi-coloured embroidery much like that all over the length of the Maroon Bridal Lehenga. To complement this look, team it up with Kundan or Pearl jewellery and an antique choker.

Here, we are speaking about the Solid Maroon lehenga for Indian brides. This is a nice deep shade in Earthy tones of Maroon Bridal Lehenga with a nice broad border.
However, the dupatta is a netted creation in ‘the shade of Cream’. As for the jewellery, you need to get yourself a nice Baroque-style Pearl for a complete bridal set.

The White and Maroon Bridal Lehenga
Like the Maroon shade but cannot carry ‘all of it’? Well, why not bring another colour into the combination? Here we are talking about the classic combination of Maroon and White. Trust us when we say, it is ‘one of a kind’, as it easily takes a break from the regular bridal traditional saree idea.
Here. the idea is to bring together the White from the Christian ceremony to the Maroon of the Indian festivities. The result is a striking ensemble that can be worn as party wear for various other events as well.
Here, the main fabric is the Organza lace with Maroon Velvet borders. The blouse is a solid Maroon piece, with a fine White lace dupatta with broad borders in White once again.
The thing about the White and Maroon Bridal Lehenga combination is that it somehow balances out the two very prominent colours. Also, the contrast is so striking in this case, that you can easily wear any jewellery with this one: diamond cuts, Emerald-based, or regular bridal gold jewellery.

Black and Maroon Bridal Lehenga
This bridal wear idea is a perfect excuse for the millennial bride to be able to mix-an match her attire in the future. Here we are talking about the Black Lehenga with Golden embroidery work done on it, while the blouse is a deep Maroon Bridal Lehenga.
When selecting the bridal wear, the new-age bride desires for her attire to be able to be used for the future as well. One for the creative eye, this calls for the pieces to be ‘individually compete’ in themselves.
This essentially means, that the Maroon blouse from the attire can be used with party wear sarees, while the Black and Maroon Bridal Lehenga is as versatile as it can get.
The dupatta is in the same shade as Maroon, with Zari work done at the borders. Once again, this dupatta can be easily used as an individual piece with another traditional Indian attire. However, coming back to the Black and Marron bridal lehenga, you need to team this up with some nice traditional chunky pieces of bridal jewellery.

Blue and Maroon Bridal Lehenga
Sounds strange? Well, not at all. This is one of the most unique combinations and stays unique to the theme. If you are a bride who wishes to look different from the crowd, then this is one great idea to opt for.
Here. once again we are going to be playing around with a fine combination of two leading fabrics: Velvet and Cotton Silk. As you might have noticed, these are some of the leading choices that offer the right kind of confidence you require to be a ‘beautiful bride’.
The bridal wear comprises a fine Blue Velvet Skirt with handwork done at the bottom length of the Maroon Bridal Lehenga. The needle and thread work is done in Gold to offer a rich contrast to the Navy-Blue fabric. Likewise, the Blouse is a creative delight in the same handwork, colour, and fabric.
However, the heavy Maroon Bridal Lehenga with dupatta is the centre point with a broad border in Gold. There is a delicate shimmer of glitter work interspersed across the surface of the dupatta, offering you the kind of glow in the light of the special evening.
Complete your look with the bridal jewellery of your choice; we recommend classic Gold, as it will balance the contrast in the two colours occurring.

Didn’t see this one coming, did you? But wait till you check out the final result. This is a great idea to implement the concept of ‘Color-block’ into the bridal theme. The subtle Peach manages to finely balance the richness of the deep Maroon.
The colour combination has been able to make it to the ‘myMandap look book’ for this wedding season 2022. Here we are talking about a ‘statement blouse’ in Maroon Cotton Silk. The design comprises a frill one-shoulder design with a sleeveless base. All, over the blouse we have fine handwork done in Gold embroidery.
The Lehenga is a Silk fabric creation with intricate embroidery done in Maroon threadwork at the very base of the skirt. The contrast is beautiful and surprising at the same time. A Maroon dupatta with Golden thread work and broad borders completes the look.
Wear this wonderful creation for your Sangeet or Cocktail, and you will know exactly the impact it has on the event. Complete the look with chunky earrings and bangles and we suggest you give the necklace a miss altogether.
The Pakistani Maroon Bridal Lehenga
This is a wonderful choice if you wish to go traditional all the way. However, it is a perfect choice for the bride who is not afraid to go OTT. While the excitement of the wedding can take a toll on your energies, the richness of the bridal wear manages to offer you the ultimate relaxation of triumph.
The Maroon Bridal Lehenga is a self-woven kind, with detailed embroidery filling up the entire surface of the fabric used. The needlework is done on Silk for this attire with Gold work glaze over the Maroon shade. The Blouse is a thigh-length Kurta with similar thread work adorning the entire surface.
The border of the neck is a broad tear-drop-shaped one with Zari work done on it. The final piece is the Peach-colored dupatta with a Maroon border in Georgette fabric. Here, a beaded border offers a fine finished look that frames the face and the head when draped in the typical bridal style.
As for the jewellery, go for the Princess bridal set and you are ready to take the evening by storm.
Green and Maroon Bridal Lehenga
This is the final creation and is a perfect choice for the Contemporary Bride. Here instead of the red lehenga, we have the Maroon and Green lehenga choli design. However, this is anything but traditional.
The Bottel Green ‘Skirt-style’ lehenga is in Silk fabric and comprises glorious floral designs done in colour and Metallic thread. However, instead of the regular blouse, we have the Velvet Turtle Neck top in deep Maroon colour.
The Leather belt completes the look on this one and offers a style statement. Complete the look with the Messy bun, stylish Gold Jewellery, bangles, and even nice head jewellery. Try keeping the makeup subtle.
Maroon is a rich colour and makes the perfect Bridal choice in colours. It offers the perfect festive look one expects from a bridal attire, and even a simple Solid piece of fabric is good enough to instantly transform you into a bride.
However, as the colour is so rich, it is advised to be sensible when it comes to your makeup and jewellery. Usually, pieces in Kundan, Polki, and Gold are the perfect choices. But, you can also go for the contrast altogether. Fine jewellery in green Emerald or even classic diamonds is great.

The Makeup can be completely in sync with the colour theme or go subtle on this one. While a nice bold Maroon lip colour is a perfect fit, for the Maroon bridal wear, going with a pastel Pink or even Peach-based makeup is great.
As for the dupatta, you can do the latest double dupatta trend that has caught the fancy of the modern bride like never before. However, be sure to keep one dupatta in delicate fabric and the other outer drape to be of the heavier kind.
Maroon is the colour for all seasons and for every reason. It is one colour that remains as traditional as tradition can be. The best part about this bridal hue is that it suits all skin tones, and every culture and can be carried out in most events. The colour is the symbol of richness and depth, something that the young Indian bride has oodles of.
