Chikankari lehengas are all you need for your summer weddings. After all, they are perfect for and come in delightful pastels and brights, which look unique and picture perfect. They were originated in the city of Nawabs, Lucknow, and the word ‘chikan’, literally translates to embroidery.
Chikankari is the unique technique of making intricate designer patterns on a fabric, all by hand. If you’re having a summer wedding, we’d highly recommend wearing a Chikankari lehenga on one of your functions!
Here’s all the info you’d need on where to buy your Chikankari lehenga from!

Love this bright red lehenga with Chikan work- not a lot of budget designers pull them off in brights well!
She has some nice budget picks in nice and pretty shades which look nice and fresh for the Mehendi.

They have a whole Lucknowi collection with a lot of options in a lot of colours! The good part is that they ship abroad as well.
This one has lehengas in pastel shades with Lucknowi work which are subtle and pretty if you’re looking for budget options.
