The only attire that can beat the charm of bridal lehengas is a wedding silk saree. Even among those, wedding pattu sarees are what really take the cake bringing in all the grace and elegance needed for the big day. Their contemporary designs and use of bright colours set these sarees apart from any other kind of silk sarees. To save you the hassle of having to choose from the variety of colours, designs and motifs we’ve put together the ultimate go-to list for wedding pattu sarees.
1. Pink and Gold hues
A bright and stunning shade of pink with gold zari motifs through the saree accompanied with a thick gold border is one of the most stunning combinations for a wedding pattu saree. Team this up with light jewellery since the saree itself is so ornate and complete your hairstyle with fresh flowers. This is a look that is sure to leave your groom stunned. The bright shade of pink is more contemporary but the embroidery gives it the touch of tradition that makes it special.
2. Maroon and green
Maroon and green are traditional colours for wedding pattu sarees. These colours are said to be auspicious for the bride to be and so, they are the most widely available. While this combination might be traditional you can certainly set it apart by picking a design that has motifs of peacocks, mandalas, flowers or deer. These motifs are created out of gold zari and are usually designed for the length of the saree. For the blouse, you can pick a green brocade design with an embroidered border.
3. Green, Gold and Pink
A wedding silk saree must have golden zari work, what sets each saree apart is the design that the zari is embroidered into. A creeper or plant-like weave with petals, leaves and flowers on an off-white base makes a subtle statement. The added colours of pink and green which are considered auspicious, give it a twist of tradition. The signature broad gold border is always a winner. To make this look stand out more you can team it up with a bright hand embroidered blouse that gives it a pop of colour.
4. Red and Gold with an embroidered border
An ornate red and gold pattu silk saree is breathtaking. It is bound to look beautiful and to stand out in a crowd. While many brides may pick this combination yours can be different with the right design. Pick a saree that has a dense gold weave, this may sound like it’s too much but on the gold silk, it fits right in. For the border choose a design that tells a story like a traditional wedding scene with the palanquin escorted by the wedding party. Since the saree itself has so much work and detail keep the blouse, jewellery and hairstyle simple. This will allow the saree to be the star!
If you're having trouble deciding what colour to wear, why not get a wedding pattu saree that is multi-coloured. You can easily find various motifs woven into the saree with different colours such as this one. Since it will already have a lot of contrasting colours, you need not find a contrasting blouse and can simply use the same pattern for it. This will be your way of treading away from convention while still being a gorgeous traditional bride.
