At POPxo Wedding, we are fans of all things bridal. Our latest crush is on kanjeevaram sarees. This handcrafted nine yards of silk looks so elegant on any bride. And the vibrant colours make us drool! These girls and their kanjeevaram bridal silk saree styles are giving us all kinds of inspiration. There should be one, at least, in your wardrobe!
1. The traditional red
Yes, almost every bride wears red on her wedding day. And why not when it looks this pretty and regal. We love the simplicity of this look and how the heavy, green-flecked jewellery adds the right amount of contrasting colour. Plus, check out the bold, red lip colour!

2. Violet symphony
Didn’t we say we love colour? This bold violet kanjeeavaram is so different! The gold of the jewellery goes so well with the gold in the saree!

3. Orange you gonna join us?
When you want to stand out, why not go with a contrasting blouse like our bride here? The sleeves match the saree but she chose a contrasting purple - with heavy embroidery - for the body of the blouse. No matchy matchy here! Also, how much fun is this photo?

Another traditional bridal colour and another beautiful bride! The coloured gemstones and pearl jewellery is such a refreshing change - it totally adds new colours to the look. And how can we forget the kaasumalai!

4. Rani pink FTW!
I know, wrong language, but isn’t it appropriate? Let’s count the colours in this one saree - orange, gold, yellow, pink and green on the sleeves! This is another picture which is just so much fun!

5. Rang de tu mohe gerua
6. Marooned in love
This saree kind of proves why everyone is crazy after kanjeevaram sarees. It is ornate. From the intricate gold and maroon weave on the pallu and the borders to the subtler self-design on the rest of the saree - we love every bit of this. And how can we not drool over the beautiful hair jewellery and matching maroon and sandalwood flowers!

7. Simply beautiful
When you want to go minimalist, this is the way to do it! Forgoing the traditional heavy gold jewellery and bridal bun, this bride’s open hairdo is a refreshing change!

8. One man, one hue
If you want to go monochrome, this is how to do it - down to the jewellery and bangles!

9. Go green!
And how! This photo is giving us a hit of colour! It’s a refreshing change from the usual pinks and reds. And how much do you covet the stunning jewellery?!

10. North meets south
Brides don’t usually cover their heads down south, but we love how this girl bridges the North-South divide! Not just that, the kundan and pearl jewellery is also a nod to northern traditions.
