Red is the default color for Indian nuptials. Even though many brides are moving away to choose other bridal ‘Lehenga’ options like powder pink, ivory or shades of yellow, red is eternal. The origin of the tradition to wear red wedding bridal ‘Lehenga’ has different theories; some say that it is associated with the rising sun and according to astrology it is the color of Mars which is considered to be the planet in charge of Marriage in the Hindu culture. It is also linked with Goddess Lakshmi, the wife of Lord Vishnu who is spotted in an all red ensemble from her ‘Saree’ to bangles. Whatever be the case one cannot deny the charm that vermillion bridal ‘Lehenga’ brings to the table. It is a positive hue that has the power to ward off evil and usher peace and prosperity to new beginnings.
