Sarees will always be a woman’s favourite garment to drape. And your bridal trousseau isn’t and cannot be complete without a few beautiful, embellished and classic sarees that you’ll wear for many ceremonies and occasions! In fact, in so many Indian cultures, brides get married wearing a saree instead of a lehenga. Your mother will definitely have a treasure trove of sarees, each having a story woven along the occasion she wore it for.
But do you remember the last time she wore it? Probably not. Sarees bought for your trousseau often never see the light of the day from underneath your cramped closet after your wedding functions are over. But here are a few bridal trousseau sarees you can re-use, re-wear and re-purpose again and again, long after your wedding functions are over!
Can it look any better? A saree with pastel accents. It’s not only sophisticated but can also be re-worn without a second thought. You can wear it at your friend's sangeet, and even for someone’s reception party!
