Welcome to ehealthforum,
The color of the vulval structures depends on genetic factors, ethnicity and local factors like friction, hormonal changes etc. If you are worried about the appearance, consider getting examination done by your doctor/gynecologist to see if the appearance is normal and if pigmentation can be reduced or not. Since the area has delicate skin, skin lightening can be harmful and complicated. The sexual relationship after marriage should be based on individuality and trust and not mere physical characteristics.
Take care.
