Check out top 10 gorgeous designer sarees to wear on weddings. Now, look stunning this wedding season.
We are in love with Indian weddings. Aren’t we? Food, music, fun and all the dressing up. Besides, for us ladies, it is that time of the year when we indulge in sheer gorgeousness. We try and look the best, wearing pretty Indian attire, lehenga, saree, salwar kameez, Pakistani suit flaunting our lovely jewels, we put on a bindi and beautiful bangles that complement the outfit and wear those stunning heels. Ah! Indian weddings are so much fun!
If you ask me, for a wedding, I will always choose to wear a saree over any other Indian outfits. Saree is graceful, can be draped in different styles, can look modern yet traditional, suits all occasions and there is one for each season. From sleeveless blouse to a corset, from bandhgala to a deep neck, from a super traditional silk saree to a designer saree-lehenga, saree is such a versatile outfit!
To make your life simple, Zuri brings to you top 10 designer sarees to wear on weddings. The collection is beautiful, stylish, trendy and has a designer touch to it. They can be purchased online as well. Check out some really lovely colors in fine fabrics, such as champagne georgette sari that can be teamed up with a turquoise blouse which has sequins work or off-white net saree with patta and resham work with peacock motif on the pallu and booti work on the border. Besides, butter crepe and chiffons with a bit of a twist are also a big hit this year. The trending colors belong to a softer hue family, such as off-whites, beige and pastels. Take for instance Monisha Jaising’s ‘World Bride’ theme which is inspired from the French Rococo style of the 18th century. What we liked in particular was this cocktail saree with an embroidered corset in golden beige color. This year, golden and shimmer is going to be in vogue. Sabyasachi Mukherji’s sarees have a sparkly gold finish which has been carefully chosen to go with a dull black, thereby giving it a nouvelle look altogether. Then, there is an awesome combination of green, cream and blue lehenga-saree which is perfect for a bridesmaid! And let’s not forget Tarun Tahiliani’s dark blue, sky blue and orange georgette that can be gracefully worn with a sleeveless blouse with a zip at the back of the blouse.
1. Dry-cleaning is a preferred option: Whether it’s a silk saree or a designer one with embellishments/zardosi/resham/sequins work, it is preferred that you get them dry-cleaned.
2. Hand Wash is OK for certain fabrics: Silks can be washed but be careful: Its fine to hand-wash certain silk sarees such as raw silk, tussar silk, Shantung, dupion and China silk. One needs to be careful with the drying process. It is recommended that you roll it in a towel and then hang on a hanger neatly to ensure it doesn’t get too creased-up.
3. Satins: If the stains are hard, such as those of gravy, ice cream, chocolate, lipstick etc. (which often get greasy after a wear) it is advised to get the saree dry-cleaned. But, certain stains such as those of a nail polish can be easily removed by rubbing acetone on the stain.
