While we can firmly attest to the fact that sarees will never go out of style, and never so for an Indian wedding, we know how browsing through hordes of styles can make you feel like you’re looking at the same old patterns and fabrics.
Caught in a rut? So were these brides, until they decided to overhaul their Indian wedding saree with a fresh new look!
Check out this finely curated bridal saree lookbook for an inspirational style that- and we really mean this - you can refurbish and wear over and over again!
1. Saree in Red
A red saree has never failed a well-meaning Indian bride. As long as you want to keep it minimal and chic, a bright red saree is your go-to. Reinvented as a cocktail saree, the quintessential red saree can be super sexy and alluring, paired with an understated neckpiece!
2. Printed Saree
Prints are in and how! Printed sarees aren’t just the stuff Satya Paul is made of, though. You can look up Masaba Gupta for more inspiration on how to rock the ultimate printed saree with some pretty chic antique jewellery.

3. Net and Lace
Think net and lace and intricately weaved Parsi sarees with a retro ‘70s updo and a bold red lip comes to mind. But the modern bride has reinvented this classic by throwing in bolder colours and bigger borders to polish the elegant look.
4. The Little Black Saree
Need we say more? Go for a heavy silk and rustic silver jewellery to make a statement! You might want to experiment with the blouse and pair it with a bold lip for a nighttime soiree!
A dhoti saree has multiple benefits- not only does it look minimalist and retro, it is also perhaps the best way to incorporate a South Indian element into your trousseau. While you might be tempted to opt for statement temple jewellery pieces, try thinking out of the box- go for a polki set instead!
6. Pop on Pastel
Throw in some pop colours on pastel and your saree will be ready for just about any day function! Don’t forget to accessorize with a nice clutch!
7. Sequinned In!
A saree with mirror work is an instant favourite. You need only to look at Rajasthani bandhej for inspiration, but don’t let that narrow your approach! Try looking at pallus with heavy mirror work, leaving the rest of the saree relatively plain.
8. Metallic Drapes
A metallic drape is best known as the modern bride’s biggest weapon. You might think this one isn’t for you, but the right colour and a complementing blouse will make you reconsider.
9. Saree Gowns
Are you on the fence when it comes to gowns? We know a bunch of brides for whom the glamorous gown is a bit much, and not traditional enough. Try weaving the pallu of your saree into a casual dupatta with your gown and you have the best of both worlds!
10. Breezy Pastels
Breezy, summerish pastels in chiffon or georgette can be your best bet for a summer wedding, unless you want your makeup to melt off your face!
