With the changed times, the style of dressing of a traditional Indian bride has also undergone a huge change. There was a time when a new bride would only be seen dawning beautiful Indian sarees, but today, from the very next day of the wedding, and even during the various wedding functions, the brides can be seen wearing western gowns and other western dresses. Irrespective of these changed times, there are still a few typical Indian sarees, which continue to be a must have in the wardrobe of an Indian bride.
These rich and exquisite sarees are woven in Varanasi. These sarees have heavy and intricate brocade and zari work done on silk. These sarees are mostly available in darker shades of red, pink, purple, etc. and they are considered to be a must have for not just every bride, but every woman.
These lightweight sarees are a blend of cotton and silk. These sarees have a very unique translucent feel to them. These sarees make the most comfortable wear during the hot summers of India.
The tie and dye design of these sarees comes from Rajasthan and Gujarat. Every saree has a unique design. These tie and dye prints can be made on any material and, therefore, you can find bandhej sarees available in every material and in every color as well.
These sarees are pretty simple sarees and belong to the southernmost state of India, Kerala. The entire saree is pure white or off white in color and has golden threads woven into its borders. These sarees are available in two forms, in one form, these sarees come in two parts, the lower part and the upper pallu of the saree is separate, and in the other form, it comes in one piece like a typical saree.
Heavily designed using traditional motifs like flowers, shells, etc, these sarees are made using warp tie and dye, which is done before the weaving process.
These sarees are also a blend of cotton and silk and belong to Madhya Pradesh. The cotton makes these saree lightweight and easy to carry, while the silk gives them a shine.
