8 Brides who chose Sarees over Gowns for their Reception!
Owing to the grace and panache this versatile six yards extends to a bride’s overall look, a saree is a must-have in every bridal trousseau. Whether it is an understated and minimalistic one or a gaudy and flamboyant one, the saree has always been a bridal favourite. Although there are a substantial number of brides who are flaunting beautiful gowns at their reception, there are many brides who have ditched other outfit options for the timeless saree.
From the fancy sarees like georgette, chiffon and those with heavy embroidery and zari work to subtle and more traditional ones like Kanjeevaram, Benarasi, Patolas and crapes, brides have an array of sarees to choose from for their reception ceremony.
Here’s me listing 8 sarees that I completely fell in love with in the first glance and, I am sure you will too:
1. Ethereal Chikankari Saree
