Stunning Silver Lengha


Kate Middleton's reception dress was a simple white flared dress. This all out South Asian Lengha is a rendition of that same shape cut into two pieces like a typical lengha.

The silver chain and silver stone work accompanied by zari and sequins on top of net and silver woven fabric just adds the right South Asian touches to a western style dress. Definitely for the Indian bride who wants to go completely glam for her reception!

This gown is a lovely twist on Kate's wedding gown. The bottom of the mermaid skirt is complete with a back train royal enough for a princess. The heavy South Asian embellishment work is high end consisting of pearls and Swarovski crystals, all fit for a Royal Wedding.

This off the shoulder dress is as pure white and elegantly body hugging as Kate Middleton's wedding gown. The off white Katan silk tier mermaid skirt has amazing floral work all over the skirt with a net layer finish from the inside. The chiffon dupatta with small ornamental motifs scattered all over adds the perfect South Asian touch to this dress. Not to mention, the jewelry and shoes are stunning!

Although this dress is not white, the style of the dress is very similar to a western bridal gown.

This pure white silk wedding gown with blue stones and thread work with a gold touch is a colorful recreation of Kate's simple reception gown. You're guaranteed all eyes will be on you when you're in this gown!

Long Sleeved Pakistani Bridal Wear


Kate's wedding gown was unique in that it was elegant and conservative, but still incredibly fashionable. Treading along the same lines, this gorgeous chiffon outfit also recreates the same idea of elegance with a dash of glamour using the concept of long sleeves accompanied by a flaring long skirt. Perfect for a Pakistani bride searching for something conservative and elegant!

Romantic Jute Silk Sari


This handloom jute silk designer saree would be the traditional South Asian counterpart of Kate Middleton's wedding gown. This sari incorporates its own rendition of the lace used in the sleeves of Kate's dress.



This sari would also be a great outfit to be worn by the maid of honor. Similar to Kate's sisters' gown, this sari has short sleeves and is simple enough to not take away attention from the bridal gown.

Sexy Lehnga with Corset Blouse


This gown is nowhere near as simple as Kate's outfit, but the long train and the conservative yet fashionable corest top is perfect for a princess. 

This royal gown features swarovski crystals on top of a white charmeuse silk bustier. A beautiful shawl accompanies this lovely gown with a long split front and a back train.

Fitted White Lehnga with Train


This lengha is the epitome of high end royal fashion. It meshes two cultures together using the silhouette of a typical wedding gown and then breaking it into two pieces and adding gold embroidery.

The shorter train in the back is similar to Kate's choice in length in comparison to the long train worn by Princess Diana on her wedding day. 

The tiara adds the extra princess touch to this outfit!

Magestic Long Sleeved Churidar


The big question before the Royal Wedding was whether Kate would opt for a modern wedding dress or stick to a traditional conservative outfit. She emerged with a combination gown that incorporated both an old and modern feel simultaneously.


Similarly this South Asian wedding outfit perfectly imparts a very majestic feel and is sure to turn a lot of heads.

This crinkle chiffon and charmeuse silk dress uses beautiful modern material to glamorize a typically olden look by adding rich stone work using swarovski crystals and high end bead work. The dupatta head piece invokes the same romanticism as the veil worn by Kate as she walked down the aisle.
