How to choose the perfect wedding saree

Auspicious melodies, fragrant garlands, memorable festivities and six yards of sacred hues make a wedding all the more magical and special. However, finding a Wedding Saree that you like, which flatters your body, expresses your style and personality is not very easy. Here is a step-by-step guide that will help you choose your wedding saree. 


Fabric 

Silk is the most common type of fabric chosen for weddings. The beauty of India is that we have a rich weaving tradition and are home to a variety of silks ranging from Kanchipuram Silk Sarees to Banarasi Silk Sarees. Since you will be wearing the saree for a long time, opt for a fabric that does not crease easily and allows you to move around comfortably. 

Colours 

Colours represent an important aspect of culture and heritage. While there is an extraordinary range of colours available, from kili pachai to MS Blue, there are a few factors to consider while choosing the colour of your bridal saree: the time and decor of the wedding and your skin tone. If it is a day wedding, you can go for colours such as yellow, green, violet, maroon or pastel shades. Otherwise, for an evening or night wedding, you can pick darker shades such as red, gold, orange, fuschia pink etc. Keep a few colour options in mind before going to the store so that you will have a lot of possible alternatives to choose from. 

Design

Design plays an important role while selecting a bridal saree. If you are a minimalist bride and do not like wearing sarees with heavy embellishments, you can choose a royal Mysore Silk Saree or Soft Silk. If you love dressing up, you can pick a rich brocade Banarasi Silk Saree or Kanchipuram Silk. Some of the most popular designs for weddings are Shikargah, kattam, Aathi vazhai and motifs such as parrot, annam, peacock and iruthalai pakshi. 

Things to remember 


Weddings are an emotional affair and the wedding saree is a treasured garment that helps us relive the bittersweet moments of this big day. Here are a few more suggestions that will help you pick your Bridal Saree.  


  • Before finalising a saree, you can request the salesperson to help drape it around you so that you have an idea of how it will look
  • If your saree is very grand, opt for simple blouse designs and makeup
  • Once you purchase your saree, jewellery and other accessories, we recommend booking a trial session with your makeup artist
  • Wearing a petticoat with the right fit, length and colour will also help to enhance your overall look
