1. Classic Red
Number one on our list is the classic red lehenga.
This list is in no particular order but if it were, true red would top our list.
Especially if you’re a bride, this color is timeless and perfect year-round, including Winter. What’s also really great about red lehengas is that every brand has them and at every budget, so you’re sure to find something you love.
Even if you’re not the bride, red lehengas are a great option. If you’re afraid of upstaging the bride in a super embroidered, heavy red lehenga, then opt for something less voluminous and not as embroidered.
Where to Buy the Best Red Lehengas?
Like I mentioned earlier, finding the ultimate red lehenga is relatively easy because most brands have this color with plenty of variety.
Luxury Red Lehengas
If you have the budget to spend a bit more on a red lehenga, I would highly recommend it because they’re classic, never go out of style, and are great for formal events.
Here are some brands and lehengas you have to check out for luxury red lehengas!
- Sabyasachi has some of the most beautiful lehengas I have ever seen. BUT, be warned, they are very, VERY expensive. Plus, it’s really hard to guess their prices because they are constantly coming out with new clothes and they never post the prices on their site, so it’s hard to plan the budget you need to afford one of their lehengas. Here I’ve linked an article where I talk about the average prices of Sabyasachi lehengas and sarees for 2020. They’ll help you give a rough estimate of what you should expect to pay for a Sabyasachi lehenga.
- Anita Dongre is another fabulous luxury Indian designer with some stunning lehengas. Here’s their Adhisree Lehenga ($5,338) and Kalki Lehenga ($2,077), which are a part of Anita Dongre’s luxury bridal collection.
- Seema Gujral has some stunning lehengas AND they aren’t nearly as expensive as Sabyasachi and Anita Dongre. This Persian red embroidered lehenga is a little more than $1,000, which, YES, is A LOT, but is very reasonable compared to other Indian luxury designers like Sabyasachi, Manish Malhotra, and Rohit Bal.
Here’s another magical Seema Gujral lehenga. It’s $2,453 and gives us major Manish Malhotra vibes! This ruby red lehenga with floral embroidered motifs and matching embroidered blouse is a great winter lehenga for brides.
And here’s another scarlet red lehenga from Seema Gujral because I can’t get enough of them! Like the other lehenga, it’s $2,453 and also has floral embroidered motifs and comes with two dupattas. If you’re looking for a bridal lehenga option, then this is another wonderful option. Plus, two dupattas are so beautiful on lehengas – it looks regal and so, so elegant.
Affordable Red Lehengas
Now let’s be honest, spending thousands of dollars on a lehenga is a bit crazy. That’s why these affordable red lehengas are great options for Winter weddings if you’re on a budget!
- Net Embroidery Lehenga Choli – $199
Considering that a classic red lehenga by Rohit Bal can cost you almost $25,000 – YUP, $25,000 – this $200 lehenga is such a steal! Plus, you have the option to have it unstitched, stitched, or even customized.
- Taffeta Satin Lehenga – $40.53
This is a great party-wear lehenga at an incredible price point! It’s bright red, youthful, and has the option to be customized.
- Red Silk Readymade Lehenga – INR 6,350
This bright red lehenga is a lot more simple and plain but the embroidered and sequined dupatta with the tassels on the blouse make it super fun and a great party lehenga.
If you’re looking for lehenga colors for Winter weddings, you can never go wrong with a classic red lehenga.
PRO TIP: Be careful when you’re looking for clothes on more budget sites, because a lot of times they use designer photos of clothes to sell their own replica versions. It’s best to read reviews and check their return policies so that you are prepared for what you might receive and have the option to return it if you want.
Browns, beiges, chocolate browns. BROWNS! BROWNS! BROWNS!
Brown is such an underrated color for lehengas and if you’re looking for lehenga colors for Winter weddings, you have to consider this color. It’s unique and different and you’re sure to stand out in this color – whether you’re a bride or a wedding guest.
What’s so great about brown lehengas for Winter weddings? There’s so many shades of brown to choose from. I think that when most people think of brown, they think of mud.
But when I’m talking about brown, I’m talking about beige, light brown, caramel, chocolate brown, and every other color that falls under the realm of brown.
If you want to stand out at a wedding, try a fun, brown lehenga and you’ll be sure to turn heads.

Lehenga colors for Winter weddings is always a tricky situation. You want something warm and appropriate to the seasonal colors, but you also want something fun and festive – after all, you are going to a wedding!
And teal screams FESTIVE! Bring some light into Winter by wearing a teal lehenga to your next wedding.
How is Teal Different from Other Shades of Blue?
Teal is a shade of blue. It’s a dark greenish-blue color that is still very much blue, but a bit on the darker side. Turquoise is also a shade of green-blue, but it’s lighter than teal.
So, teal is a greenish shade of blue and teal is darker than turquoise.

I know, I know. Black for a wedding? Sounds fishy.
But black lehengas are some of the most elegant and regal lehenga colors for Winter weddings I have ever seen.
Black lehengas are also really versatile. You can add practically any color to black and it will look good. Plus, black looks beautiful on all skin tones. Black is also a great color to make you look slimmer and taller.
Though most brides are probably be scared of black, it’s a great color for wedding guests. And if you are a bride, give black a shot! If you’re afraid it’ll be too dark and depressing for your wedding day, try pairing it with a colorful and heavily embroidered blouse and dupatta. Even black lehengas with embroidered skirts are an awesome bridal idea.

Gold and silver metallic lehengas are perfect for Winter weddings because they are icy, cool, and very luxe.
Metallic lehengas are perfect for brides but you can totally wear them if you’re a bridesmaid or wedding guest, too! If you’re not the bride, just wear metallics that are a bit more toned down – instead of wearing both a lehenga and blouse that is metallic, just choose either the top or bottom. Or you could wear a lehenga where the metallic detailing is on the bottom of the skirt – it looks funky and great for parties while also not stealing the spotlight from the bride.

Most of the luxury lehengas have special work on them or extra embroidery with jewels and sequins and crystals to give them an extra shine.
But if you’re looking for more affordable metallic lehengas, I would recommend buying a silver or gold lehenga where the fabric is already shiny and metallic. That way, you can save money with less embroidery while still rocking a metallic lehenga!
But of course, if you can find a lehenga that has embroidery, that’s great! At the end of the day, wear the lehenga you feel most beautiful in – whether it has no embroidery or heavy emrboidery.

6. Dark Purple
Purple seems like a summery color and certain shades of it, like lilac and light purple, are. But when looking for lehenga colors for Winter weddings, try eggplant or a deep, rich purple.
Dark purple is perfect for Winter weddings, whether you’re the bride or a guest. It’s elegant, regal, and fun!

8. Maroon/Dark Red
You can never, ever go wrong with dark red on your wedding day. In terms of lehenga colors for Winter weddings, it’s timeless, elegant, and season-appropriate.
I think wearing maroon for Winter weddings, whether you’re the bride or a guest, is always a safe and pretty option.
What’s also really great about maroon lehengas is the VARIETY. Because it is such a classic Winter wedding color, most designers and stores have plenty of options of maroon lehengas to fit any budget or style.
How to Wear a Maroon Lehenga as a Bride
As you can see from the photos above, too, most brides wear maroon or dark red lehengas in a very distinct way.
Here’s the classic way to rock your dark red lehenga:
- Velvet: this is such a popular way to wear maroon lehengas. It’s also really great for the Winter time because it will keep you warm. The dark red color also looks a lot more rich and luxurious against velvet.
- Gold: gold and maroon is a match made in heaven. It looks regal and royal and is great if you’re more into the traditional vibe. If you want to switch it up but still be classic, having silver embroidery and work on your lehenga is an awesome idea.
