Why Sarees make for great wedding attires?

Many women love sarees for their fluidity and comfort. Sari can be draped in numerous ways, and thus, leaves a lot of scope for experimentation.
These precisely are the reasons - Sarees have been an Indian wedding staple, since ages. It is a beautiful way to mark a girl’s journey to being a woman. As aforementioned, other important women in the family or bride’s/ groom’s friends also often wear sarees on marriages, as sarees are suitable for women of all ages and body shapes.

Wedding Sarees are available in tons of styles, fabrics, weaves, embroideries and embellishments, and that is why, they never fail to capture one’s imagination. You can choose your bridal saree in the most traditional fashion like a Bridal Panetar Saree, Gharchola Saree, Banarasi Saree, or a Bridal Kanjeevaram Saree, or may choose from trendier styles like Net Bridal Sarees, or go the mid-way in Silk Bridal Sarees.
Styling a bridal look in sari is a treat. That is why many women still prefer to wear sarees, instead of lehenga choli, on their D-Day.

You can also experiment a lot with blouses and odhanis, if wearing a Bridal Saree for your special day.
