The wedding saree or Bridal saree is given a lot of importance in India. Indian Saris come in different fabrics from cotton to silk, from georgettes to crapes. Jewellery obviously highlights the look of the bride but the wedding saree is given a lot of emphasis. In India, Pakistan and Bangladesh there is no greater event in a family than a wedding. Bridal sarees can range from a few thousand to a few lac rupees. There is no limit as far as variety in Indian bridal sarees are concerned.
Apart from the traditional prints and weaves, nowadays designers are creating fresh and innovative designs. They also are altering the way the Indian saree is draped over the shoulder. It all depends on the kind of work done on what is known as the “palav” – this is that part of the saree, which is thrown over the shoulder.
Today in 2010, saris have a lot of work done on them. Zari, embroidery, organza, zardosy, sequence, cut work, mirror work, patchwork, pearl work, kasab, kundan, are all different kinds of work, which beautify the saree.
