Selecting the right bridal saree

Each woman has her own way of picking up sarees for herself. For instance, some may go by colours, some by fabric, others may go for sarees that suit their body type or depending on the designs available.
Here are some important aspects that we need to keep in mind before wedding shopping:
Plan Ahead: Start planning 2-3 months before the wedding -so that you will have the time to browse and choose the perfect saree!
Budget: Budget plays an important role when you pick silk sarees. There are many different varieties in different price ranges that are available. Therefore, to make your choices faster, it’s best to finalize a budget for your saree shopping.
Time of the event: It is very important to make sure you shop according to the time of the event. The day events lighter fabrics and shades are preferable. If you go for shades like black and brown for a day event, you might look overdressed.
Whereas, if it’s a evening/ night function ( reception or sangeet) saree s with rich look and heavy embroidery, stone work and zari work are suitable. Silk Sarees such as Banarasi Silk Sarees, Mysore Silk Sarees, Kancheepuram silk, Georgette, etc. are perfect!
Fabric:  The fabric of your saree can enhance your beauty on the special day. The choice of fabric can make you look slim or bulky accordingly. It also plays a role when it comes to comfort. Kancheepuram or wedding silks are on the heavier side, whereas silk cotton and soft silk are not too heavy and make sure you get a classy look!
Color: We would recommend going for colors such as yellow, red and pink for weddings. There are also other gorgeous colors that one can go for based on their skin tone.
Zari: The design, embellishments and work on the saree is also something that needs to be paid attention to.  If you are choosing a saree or lehenga for a sangeet, then go for designs that are not too heavy as they are comfortable. Sarees with heavy embellishments are perfect for a reception look as you won’t be moving around too much.

The perfect bridal lehenga

An ideal wedding dress is a dream for every bride. The Lehenga is a traditional ensemble that has been trending in recent times. There are different types of lehengas from which you can choose. While choosing lehenga for your wedding reception, there are some things that you need to keep in mind. Such as:
Color - Choose a color that will suit you perfectly
·         Very Fair Complexion: If you have a fair skin tone, opt for bright or dark shades such as blue, red, pink and orange. You can also experiment with shades like white and cream.  Avoid grey and brown shades.
·         Fair Complexion: Avoid neutral shades and go for shades such as cream and other pastel colors. Shades of yellow, blue and light pink look gorgeous too!
·         Wheatish Complexion: Most colors suit best on people who have wheatish complexion. Go for colors that complement your skin tone such as red, fuchsia, maroon, neon shades and greens.
·         Dusky Complexion:  Classic blues, bronze, silver, metallic shades & brick red are colors that will look perfect on you. Avoid bright shades like neons.
Body Type
·         Slim: Thin/Slim brides can go for heavy / fluffy lehengas with many choli patterns such as backless choli, deep neck choli and netted shoulder choli or one-sided choli. Zari work & zardosi work are some options that you can look for at your lehenga.
·         Hourglass Shape:  This is the perfect body shape that can pull off any lehenga. Materials like velvet and georgette with any type of cut are best suited on this body type. A-line cut and fish cut also looks lovely on this shape!
·         Heavy on top: Lehengas with jacket and layering at the top using jewelry or dupattas are the best for this body shape.  Go for straight and cuts that are simple and preferably small prints.
·         Curvy: Go for long top s and fluid fabrics. For these shapes avoid pleated or flared clothing and go for sharara cut lehengas or bold prints in single colors.
