Choosing a Wedding Saree for Your Big Day - Driven By Curiosity
Choosing a Wedding Saree for Your Big Day
07 th Aug 2014

We know that the most important aspect of your wedding shopping is the selection of the wedding saree. When we say wedding sarees, we know you’re thinking bright colours, rich fabrics, traditional motifs and intricate handwork.

While this is the norm, an increasing number of women are also choosing subdued colours or simple designs that are both elegant and comfortable. The growing tribe of designers are customizing Indian wedding outfits to cater to both the sections of women.

The options when it comes to choosing the wedding outfit are endless and confusing. So how do you go about choosing the right wedding saree which will make you dazzle on your wedding day? We give you a few pointers here. 


Indian wedding outfits have been traditionally associated with bright colours like red, maroon and yellow. With the influence of modern fashion trends, the latest fad in Indian wedding outfits is the use of unconventional tones. Turquoise, pink, fuschia and lime green are all making a splash on wedding sarees this wedding season. While deciding the colour for your bridal outfit, make sure to pick a colour that goes well with your skin tone.

Two tone sarees are also a rage since they let you offset a traditional colour with a contemporary one like this Raakesh Agarvwal saree. It comes with a sequin sheeted skirt and a corset with a one shoulder strap. Beautiful crystal embroidery all over the outfit is enough to turn you into a ravishing diva. 


When it comes to wedding sarees, Kanjeevarams are still a hot favourite among the South Indians while the North Indians are experimenting with newer fabrics in a big way. If you want to make a statement in a kanjeevaram silk saree, pick one with bright hues and offbeat motifs.

Else, you can always go in for chiffon, georgette, tissue or a satin saree that is easier to manage, comes in myriad colours and gives you the chance to use embellishments. Due to the pervasive influence of bollywood on Indian wedding outfits, many brides are choosing sarees with a net pallu and a heavily embroidered border on it as seen on the big screen. 

If you are slightly on the heavier side, we suggest you stick to the silk fabric that will drape well, hide your flab and make you look lean. 


What is an Indian wedding outfit without embellishments? Whether you want to go in for a traditional look or a modern one, a look of grandeur or elegance, you can pick a saree with craftsmanship that reflects your taste.

You can choose pearl, Swarovski or stone embellishments to add some dazzle to your wedding sarees. Zardosi and embroidery are other popular choices for embellishments in the Indian wedding outfits. Choose a pattern that matches your bridal jewellery.

However, if you are going to be wearing a lot of jewellery, then we advise you to pick a wedding saree with minimum embellishments like this shimmering golden number. Wedding sarees like this will form the perfect canvas that will let your blouse, the embroidered belt and your jewellery do the talking. 

In Conclusion, whatever you select, at the end of the day, it is important for you to feel comfortable in the wedding saree and for it to drape well. Before making the purchase, be sure that the colour of the wedding saree will complement your skin tone and that the material will flatter your figure. That way, you can be sure to make heads turn at your wedding.
