Owing to the royal feels and unparalleled ethnicity that the timeless nine-yard lends, a lot of brides are switching from bridal lehengas to sarees for their big day. While some are swearing by modish sheer & lacey drapes, others are sticking to the conventional patterns. However, of all the existing types, the one that is raging big time is the Classic Silk Saree!
Silk sarees are undeniably a hep outfit choice for brides. Even though a silk saree has forever been a wardrobe staple for South Indian brides, it seems to have found an equally special place in other brides' trousseaus as well. Be it bloggers, stylists or celebrity brides, almost everyone is approving of this traditional garment and styling it in such unique and versatile ways.
