How to wear a Banarasi Saree for Wedding

Banarasi Wedding Sarees


Imagine, a beautiful bride with all her natural glow, bridal jewelry, floral gajras and mala, and everything looking perfect owing to a beautiful vermilion-hued silk saree with gold or silver zari work… Enchanting! It is. The beauty of such a Banarasi saree lies in the grandeur and opulence with a timeless charm and yet giving the natural beauty of the bride to outshine every golden threadwork that it carries on itself.

Do you still wish to know more?

For brides who love chic and suave statement look where nothing outshine their own persona, Banarasis are their best friends, especially if it has generational blessings. Believe not us, but even the ace Indian designer, Sabyasachi Mukherjee in an episode of Band Baja Bride quite eloquently professed his love for a bride adorned in a timeless Banarasi saree. And he is not the only celebrity who professed this love, two beautiful 2021 brides wore these handloom yards for their dreamy weddings. Much to her affinity for all things handloom, Diya Mirza wore a beautiful red Banarasi saree with heavy gold motifs on it and caught all eyes on her because the handloom Banarasi saree added the perfect blush to her glow.

In a similar ode to the handloom weaves, Yami Gautam became a Banarasi-clad bride where her saree in a darker tone of red had a heavy golden zari border, balanced with subtle work on the inside was a ‘something borrowed’ with her mother’s blessings. The charm increased manifolds as she wore the traditional jewelry.

Tips for Banarasi Saree look for Wedding

If you wish to know ‘how’ to wear a Banarasi Saree for Weddings for best bridal look, we will take you through a couple of examples.

Play with Pallu, bring it to the front:

Bengalis and their love for a Banarasi is a story well-known. Their shola work topors and gold jewelry, chandan-kumkum face art and a Banarasi saree where the pallu is beautifully draped in the front in pleats and covers her bosom, adding as a natural backdrop and adornment along with her gold jewelry and fragrant blooming phool haar. In a courtyard filled with tales of the yesteryear, such a bride is sure to remind you of all the regal times where queens and wives of the landlords would glow as the sun would beam up their saree’s zari motifs.

But what if the pallu is really grand and deserves a place and mention of its own? Well then, go for the simple seedha palla with maybe a contrasting silk blouse and see the easy to move bride take the pheras without thinking twice about the saree making her weigh pounds heavy. If what we hear is true, a seedha palla where the border and the palla have ornate story telling in Paithani or Baluchari trends, then even minimal jewelry cannot take away the Bride’s majestic look. Imagine dancing to the dhols with your own man and families and cherishing the day for years to come.

The open pallu:

A bride with a white trailing on the aisle creates that princess charm. Feels like fairytale! Let the fairytale come alive as you wear an ivory Banarasi saree (like Aliya) and add a Banarasi organza dupatta as the veil and the soft white reflections through an elegant translucence. Imagine this in the church’s holy vibes creating that pristine aura, making your groom say ‘I Do’ with each look at your divine glow.

Double the yards and create newness:

You are a lehenga enamoured bride but do not want a regular style. No worries. Get a cancan layered skirt ready if you want that pouf. Now pleat and add a Banarasi saree in a red in the half and use another Banarasi saree in a contrasting colour, say a tissue. The double saree look is in trend and you can obviously use both sarees later. Add an organza dupatta and you are a sassy zardozi lehenga bride with reusable sarees.

Banarasi Tissue Sarees

The belt adorned Southern drape:

Saree is a very dynamic attire, be it the Coorg style bridal drape, or the simple Tamilian or Kannadiga bridal saree or a Mangalore yellow adorning bride with crisp pleats and heavy temple style or kundan or rock cut diamond jewelry, a Banarasi saree can blend in all of it. If a manga mala just lovingly touches a temple jewelry gold kamarbandh (belt) you will only look more feminine and empowered like every challenge is under your belt. The fleur de lis patterns or beautiful ambi pattern or geometrically aesthetic brocade work on a mustard yellow or pista green katan silk banarasi handloom saree will only set you apart while adding the perfect royalty to the bridal attire.

Reception with a statement:

It is your wedding reception and while you try to blend in with the new family, you want to keep your own statement alive, worry not. Wear a midnight blue meenakari uppada katan silk handloom Banarasi saree. The dark background with the shining zari work is finely balanced with the subtle colour pops of the meenakari. You can match jewelry matching with the meenakari, or the timeless kundan heavy earrings, maang teeka and bangles. Let your mangalsutra shine in sync with sindoor. Add a floral pop with Gajra for the perfect charm!
