Be it the mermaid silhouette, structured adornments or a dash of bling, these brides made us stop and take note of their stunning gowns selection.

Anddd *drum rolls* here are not just team WMG's but also our readers' most loved cocktail gowns that oozed all sorts of elegance. Scroll & save now!!

Structured over a Pastel palette

Gurnoor left us mesmerized in this staple Gaurav Gupta gown! Those cascading curls & dainty jewellery pieces complemented the outfit beautifully.

Dipped in Gold

We loved everything about this glimmering Gold gown! A statement piece in itself, the bride chose to balance its maximalism by styling it with just a pair of earrings. On point, eh?

Boasting of scintillating details

This Sabyasachi gown is ideal for brides who wish to keep it conventional with a touch of bling. Everything about it spells elegance and luxe, and we wouldn't think twice before putting it on our 'top three favorites' list !

Exude radiance in Red

Obsessed is an understatement! Since Ayushi chose to ditch 'red' on the wedding day, she served some major goals in this Gaurav Gupta gown for her pre-wedding festivities.

Level up with ruffles

We're low-key fans of ruffled gowns as we feel it effortlessly adds a quirky aesthetic to the whole ambiance! And Aarushi dressed in one looked fiery, to say the least (extra points to the sleek hairdo).

Keep it minimalist

This is a sign that your wedding cocktail gown doesn't really have to be OTT every time! Prajeeta legit wowed us with this one.

Jeweled tones have always been a hit

A blend of tradition & modernity

Falling hard for this pastel-hued gown adorned with subtle embellishments! We loved how she paired it up with bold jewelry to set a flamboyant statement.

So simple yet so dazzling

Kudos to brides who like to blend comfort with style, and this gown had the best of worlds. And as Eesha said, "I love the sparkle, the fit, the comfort of my cocktail outfit. It was everything that I wanted to make me look great for the night."

All about Emerald

Honestly, we've seen so many brides donning a gown in this stunning hue, but the vibe of each and every look has always been unique. Maybe, there's something special about this color. We'd suggest you pin this one right away!

Of ball gowns and volume

Just when we thought ball gowns are a passe, our real bride, Tanvika walked in and took us by surprise.

Impeccable fashion statement

This drool-worthy, slit gown is downright gorgeous, and Ekakshra definitely took it a notch above with her perfect styling! She looked like a dream in this Prakriti Chawla outfit.

Bedazzle in a flowy silhouette

Hasgun gave those Indian princess vibes in this grey-hued gown. She paired it up with a statement hairpiece along with an emerald bridal set and totally nailed the celebrations!

Asymmetrical game on point

Our list of pin-worthy cocktail gowns would have been incomplete without this gown! While Aditi's wedding wardrobe boasted of a myriad of impressive outfits, this one surely stole the show for us.

All things metallic

Can’t decide what we loved more - the exquisite craftsmanship or the mermaid silhouette? Rhea wore a perfectly fitted metallic gown for her Cocktail with pristine diamond jewellery that added oomph to the whole look.

Starry nights

Sequinned wedding outfits are our weakness, and this one right here is ethereal beyond belief. Saroj's choice of a glimmering cocktail gown should be instantly bookmarked.

Grab attention in Ivory

The groom's reaction to this piece of art is exactly how we felt when we first this wedding gown! Corset git, intricate bead work and Steevie's flawless styling made this one look class apart.

Gorgeous In Grey

A voluminous gown with cape-like sleeves, glistening ruby jewellery and a million-dollar smile, what more could we ask for?

Oh boy, we weren't expecting chikankari work on a gown, but when we say our brides never fail to knock us out, this is what we mean! Nisha wore an ivory princess gown and teamed it with exquisite diamond jewellery and simple makeup. All hearts for this one!

Falling for the peachy tint

Image via Shreya & Yash / Outfit via Shantanu Nikhil

Shreya chose to give classic hues a miss and picked this unique gown in a totally unexpected color palette. Sans jewellery and a messy hairstyle was definitely a safe bet when it comes to styling a piece like this, and she aced it!

Offbeat feels
