Glam Guide to Fabrics for the Beautiful Indian Bride

Glam Guide to Fabrics for the Beautiful Indian Bride

Style, embroidery, texture, drape are all important factors in determining the best fabric for a wedding outfit. Here are our recommendations on best fabrics for your varied events and personal preferences!

Classic Banarasi Saree

Known for their gold and silver brocade or zari, fine silk and opulent embroidery, the special characteristics of Banarasis are Mughal-inspired designs.

Think floral motifs, leafy patterns, gold work embroidery and other exquisite details to make you feel unique on your special day!

Silk Blend Silhouettes

A stylish blend on the traditional silk for the bride that wants a fitting yet flowy outfit. Mostly worn as lehengas with embellished cholis but the colors and patterns as well as some of the latest fusion designs will spoil you!

Tease ’em With Tulle

The light, net-like fabric that has moved from only ballerina tutus to the perfect fairytale reception outfit – easy to wear for hours on end but leaving you looking dazzling the whole time.

The sheer open weave of the fabric allows you the chance to incorporate lace designs, thread work and even intricate beading for an opulent effect.

Brocade Brilliance

A richly decorative fabric a class all its own. Brocade is mostly seen in colored silks, gold and/or silver threads optional.

Perfect for Mehendi as well as Sangeet ceremonies, and easily enhanced with the use of precious and semi-precious stones as well as sequins.

A Vision in Velvet

Once considered fit for royal robes, the most magnificent textures of medieval times were Italian velvets…and you can see why!

The fabric looks grand, feels royal and exudes an aura of ethereal – everything a regal bridal wants for her wedding day look.

That Gorgeous Georgette

Crepe-like and super lightweight, georgette is often made of polyester or silk.

The dull or matte look is a good choice for warm weather weddings because it is sheer but not entirely transparent —a plus when all eyes are on you!
