A major trend this season for bridal saris has been silver zari brocade. As some brides choose platinum jewellery for their wedding trousseau, a silver brocade sari is the perfect companion to achieve a stylish bridal look. It is a refreshing way to include metallic sheen to your bridal ensemble, while moving away from the traditional gold look. An all over silver brocade pattern on a pastel shade of silk, works best.

5. Embroidered tulle sari, worn over embellished churidar

Tulle is a favourite fabric for bridal dupattas. For this bridal sari look, tulle has been used to its best advantage for an amazingly modern silhouette. The sari is styled with a choli and draped over a fitted churidar. The churidar follows the body’s natural form and is decorated with matching embroidery as the choli. The transparency of the sari allows for a play of light and shadow, gently revealing the embellishment on the churidar bottom. This look is clever in how it showcases the bride’s figure, while still being very conservative. The pastel colour palette also gets big thumbs up, as it lends an uber feminine feel to this creation.

6. Traditional sindoor-red satin sari, with silver zardozi embroidery

This look is for the bride who wishes to embrace the traditional shade of red for her bridal ensemble, but still wants to add a trendy twist. Sindoor-red is the natural colour of choice for the Indian bride. In this sari, two elements add a stylish turn to an otherwise classic look. The first is that the sari is made in silk satin, which gives it a fantastic drape and fall so that it swathes the bride in its liquid luxury. The second trend-based element is that the sari is decorated with metallic silver embroidery. Silver is the new colour de jour for bridal outfits as modern brides embrace platinum for their wedding jewellery. Chic and super elegant, this sari is a perfect combination of tradition and modernity!

Indian bridal fashion is evolving organically in a completely unique direction. While traditions and rituals retain their importance, brides are increasingly looking to include modern trends in their wedding style. Saris will always remain an evergreen option for brides on their wedding day, but new age trends have breathed fresh life into a classic silhouette.
