#BirthdaySpecial: 5 Sarees Mother of the Bride or Groom can Flaunt Like Rekha!
“In aankhon ki masti ke mastaane hazaaron hain
Mastaane hazaaron hain
In aankhon se vaabasta
In aankhon se vaabasta afsaane hazaaron hain”
A true-blue fan of Bollywood classics would sing along to the lyrics and start reminiscing about the beauty of this film and how one was left mesmerised watching the actress dance so gracefully. Of course, it was Rekha, the ever-green beauty and veteran actress who brought the titular character of Umrao Jaan to life and left people short of words to describe her performance, the film and more.
Even today as she turns 65, Rekha still has the same charm and elegance. Aisi nazakat aur dilkashi - haaye! One thing you can learn from Rekha is how to carry off a saree with such grace. In fact, every time the lady makes an appearance, people wait with bated breath to see what stunning ensemble will she turn up in! Moreover, Rekha proves that age is just a number and that beauty, style, grace and elegance are all a state of mind.
Surely, the mother of the bride or groom can take a leaf from her book of style - they obviously need to look stunning for the wedding and sarees are a great way to achieve that. Here are 5 sarees that mothers can don:
1. Who said bright colours are only for young people? If Rekha can be seen sporting a myriad range of vibrant colours, so can you! As the mother of the bride or groom, purple is perfect - a colour that exudes luxury and royalty.
2. Since the Sangeet generally takes place in the evening, warm and dark colours are preferred. The mother of the bride or groom can go for a blue and gold Kanjeevaram saree that exudes an elegant and festive appeal, perfect for the wedding celebration.
3. For the Haldi, the bride or groom’s mother can for a beige and muted gold saree. It’s subtle and while it’s not exactly yellow, it fits into the general ambience of the pre-wedding ceremony.
4. Personally, I think green is a beautiful colour that can be worn for every Indian wedding ceremony. Just imagine walking in wearing a gorgeous green Kanjeevaram saree - WOW!
5. If colours are not your thing, you can always go for the monochrome look! The black and white combination is a forever classic that can look good for any and every occasion!
