Chanderi, Paithani, Kanjeevaram, Patola and Baluchari sarees from different parts of India can be selected for wearing in various wedding occasions as designer pieces.

  1. The Golden Bride

Gold is a gorgeous color and it totally dominates the choice for picking it as wedding saree. It is graceful and at the same time quite subdued. Look different by picking up a sheer Georgette saree in this color, buy a saree with heavy gold embroidery on a neutral base fabric or pick a heavy Kanjeevaram designer saree in this hue to glitter as the bride.

  1. Wear sarees with unusual color and heavy embroidery

Reds and pinks are very much obvious but wearing whites and any pastel shade is definitely unusual for brides. If you want your wedding saree to be a complete designer piece then you should wear any light colors with heavy embroidery on them. Zardosi work, mirror work, stone and bead works will be perfect.

  1. Sarees with heavy border

Pick a sheer net saree and attach a heavy border of a Banarasi saree to it and see the look of the saree transform into some other level. Heavy Gota patti borders, Zardosi work or sequined border attached to any material or fabric and then made into a saree can be a real stunner and an experimental designer piece.

  1. Sarees in Lehenga or gown style

For creating a stunning look in your wedding reception or at the mehendi and cocktail party of your wedding functions, you can pick sarees stitched in the pattern of lehenga or gowns. These sarees come ready and are very much easy to drape. This is a great option for a designer ensemble.
