10 Wedding Saree Trends You Need to Know

One of India's oldest still-in-use garments, the saree has roots that date back to between 2800 and 1800 B.C. This traditional Indian nine-yard clothing has stood the test of time, getting updated for each new generation while ever losing its usefulness. This time-honored drape is earning the new-age Indian bride's favour since she feels a strong kinship to return to her roots. Its adaptability is clear from the fact that it may be used for the wedding day as well as for pre-wedding events or the trousseau.

"In the past, the Indian wedding scene had become somewhat homogenised. Definitely a spirit of transition right now, according to fashion designer K. H. Radharaman. In the eyes of the upcoming generation of brides, the saree has made a magnificent reappearance. They want to be the proud owners of a genuine heirloom that can be passed down to future generations.

The saree and the lehenga have traditionally been a toss-up for the bridal look for the main day, but thanks to the pandemic's popularity of intimate weddings, the saree has gained ground. Radharaman thinks that brides are more likely to experiment now, not only with their attire but also with other wedding-related details. Therefore, "handwoven sarees with a contemporary twist and a new design language" are just as popular as traditional heritage weaves, which have been a longtime favourite.

What types of sarees may a modern bride choose from? And how may brides update their appearances? Below, we provide the most recent wedding saree trends, thanks to Radharaman.

Tradition Weaves

Every Indian state is renowned for its unique weaving, from Kalamkari to Benarasi. For women who want to pay their ancestry an ode with their bridal repertoire, this is a necessity. Due to their fine craftsmanship and golden accents, benarasi weaves are a particular popularity for the event. For a suitable look, pair it with a classic blouse and uncut diamond jewellery. A handloom saree with a modern twist is another option.

Radharaman continues, "Our new collection, 'The Eternal Sequence,' is woven in a series of contemporary bridal designs that draw inspiration from several cultures.

Heirloom clothing

Do you own a family heirloom saree that has been handed down to you? Nothing better than the wedding to bring it out! For the prayer meeting or welcome lunch, dress in that gota work (appliqué method) saree or Patan Potala (double Ikat weave). The embroidered borders and patterns from a vintage saree can also be recycled and transferred to new fabric for a new aesthetic.

The use of thin fabrics

Indian bridal clothing, which was once frequently heavy, has now slimmed down to take on a lighter, more comfortable persona. Designers are continuously experimenting with textiles to offer light-weight options to brides so they can walk around easily throughout the festivities. While Advaya is renowned for creating the first linen Kanjivaram sarees, Anita Dongre offers a variety of airy organza Benarasi sarees.

Adapted Blouses

Want to give the saree a contemporary twist? A good approach to achieve this is to alter the blouse. There are numerous styles to pick from, ranging from capes to boxy crop tops. Off-shoulder necklines have undoubtedly been a trendy choice for the current season. It's fashionable and gives your repertoire a dash of sexiness. It looks best paired with a choker necklace and a pair of big stud earrings. Alternately, you may go androgynous by layering a blazer or cropped jacket over your pallu (the protruding end of the saree) and finishing it off with a belt.

The Belted Sarees

Tight waist? Please, yes! Consider wearing your saree with an obi belt or your favourite designer logo belt if your style tends to be more modern. Wearing a more elaborate precious or semi-precious belt, also known as the kamarbandh, is the way to go for bejewelled brilliance.

Twin Pallus

Playing about with the drape of the pallu, or better yet, adding another one, is the simplest method to dress up your saree to make it wedding-appropriate. By using a family heirloom or your mother's wedding saree as your second dupatta, you can add an emotional touch to your wedding attire. Selecting one with a contrasting yet complementary tone will improve the appearance as a whole.

Flustered drama

With a dance-friendly saree, add seductive playfulness to your bridal attire. For occasions like the sangeet or mehndi, this resurrection of the classic is a great option. While Bhumika Sharma works with monochrome designs and embellished blouses, Arpita Mehta's signature ruffled sarees feature a lot of mirror work.

Multiple Pastels

Think outside of the traditional red! Despite being seen as lucky, brides are no longer restricted to wearing only crimson for their wedding attire. Pinks are still very popular, but soft pastels in previously unorthodox tones are quickly taking over as the preferred choice. Nothing is off-limits, whether it's mint, sage green, peach, powder blue, or buttercup yellow.

Ivory Colors

Historically, many Indian brides avoided wearing ivory, various colours of white, and ecru. That is no longer the case, as many people are choosing this ethereal shade, especially for weddings that take place during the day. The collections of all renowned bridal designers, including Sabyasachi, Tarun Tahiliani, and Anushree Reddy, offer a variety of choices. Additionally, the fact that they make the ideal foundation for coloured gemstone jewellery helps.

Integrated Silhouettes

The saree 2.0 blends the conventional covering with modern innovations: Consider variations like the saree-gown and the jumpsuit-saree, which are all about making the biggest impact with the least amount of work. While Ridhi Mehra's pre-stitched cocktail saree gowns are as fuss-free as they come, Gaurav Gupta's designs are streamlined, structured, and avant-garde.
