The Evolution of Bridal Style in Pakistan

For a day that’s supposed to set the tone for the rest of your life, a wedding requires a lot of work. There's the ring, the venue, the catering, the invites, the dress, and so much more. In all of that picking the perfect outfit that will make you feel special, look sensational, and stand out in photos can be a nerve-wracking experience.

Whether you want to follow the crowd or embrace your own signature style on your big day, bridal wear trends are a good place to start when thinking about your wedding dress. With bridal fashions evolving much more slowly than those on the high street, many brides continuing to choose a timeless and classic look. Generally, bridal design has become more daring and adventurous in recent years. Brides used to be quite limited to classic red dresses. Today, they can play around not only with color and texture, but with silhouettes and shapes as well.

Here is how the bridal fashion has evolved over the years:

For their wedding attires, most brides go for traditional red. The designers wisely select the color and mix it with other colors to stay with roots as well and to bring innovations to the designs and theme as well. While red continues to be the go-to option for most brides-to-be, designers now offer wedding ensembles in a range of soft and subtle color options like blush, baby blue, pastel purple, pink, champagne, and baby blue. The colorful options, whether bold or bashful, are perfect for a non-traditional bride who wants to make a statement.


Embellishments on a bridal dress are like sprinkles on ice cream. Used decorously, embellishments can add shimmer and individuality to the ensemble. Throughout history, brides have taken to embellishing their wedding dresses. Elaborate beading and embroideries are used to add richness and texture to plain fabric. Small, iridescent sequins and gems are sewn on to add light and give dresses their decorative twinkle. And layers of fringe, crystal droplets, and colorful beading that spills down the gown are all favored flourishes for adding movement. In 2020, old world is new again in the form of fresh embellishments, large doses of color, and statement details that pack a punch.


Wedding dresses are usually made by the combination of different fabrics but before you combine different clothing stuff together, you need to know about these popular fabrics.
Chiffon: It is the one fabric that has been in use by the brides for decades now. This one particular stuff gives a very subtle look to the wedding dress and it has a great fall.
Organza: This fabric is again light and transparent. You can shape it easier and better than the chiffon. This fabric is good for embellishments and makes a good bridal lehenga.
Silk: If you want to wear a beautiful wedding jora then silk is the one fabric for you that is clean and has a very beautiful texture. This fabric is also symbolic of royalty.
In the 80’s and 90’s brides were more inclined towards silk. Most recently, the hottest pick by all designers is organza. Wearing organza dupatta with the bridal lehenga is top on the bridal fashion list, these days.

The most popular bridal wear for  young brides are usually lehengas, heavily embellished ghararas and sarees.
