1. Sequin it like Deepika


The memorable midnight blue sequined saree worn by Deepika Padukone, paired with a sleeveless blouse of the same colour, would make you the ultimate glam queen. Make sure that you go minimalist with your jewellery as well as make-up to keep this look flawless, clean and elegant. This sequined look is perfect for evening weddings, as beautifully depicted by the fashion icon, Deepika.

2. Cape’s the Way to Go

Actress Hina Khan doesn’t go the conventional saree way and chooses the ever-popular cape. A perfect addition to your outfits during winter weddings, the cape can also help if you love to mix and match your outfits and stand out from the crowd.

3. The Saree Dress

 Inspired by the belted saree look of Manushi Chhillar, the latest trend of draping your saree as a dress has made the internet go crazy. Sarees made in silk and thinner materials are not only worn as gowns and dresses in India, but the trend has gone popular in the west, too.

// The Season of Flowers

Celebrity Anushka Sharma has never disappointed when it comes to rocking the Indian traditional outfit of saree, and we see this in her choice of this pistachio green floral saree with a minimalistic embellished border. Beautifully complimented with a pair of Chand Baalis, Anushka established her timeless elegance.

5. Keep it Clean with White

Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiyawadi established her image as the saree-clad queen, both on and off the screen. While the B-town hottie wore a majority of white sarees throughout the movie, she also pulled off the clean, elegant look while promoting the movie across the country. Paired with minimal or no neck pieces, flowers in the hair, and statement jhumkas helped Alia kill at all press appearances.

6. Back to the Basics

Taking cues from Kiara Advani and Pooja Hedge, the Indian wedding saree industry has gone back to the original designs of chikankari and mirror work, popular during royal times. Giving a modern twist, such as a new blouse or accessories, can help you reuse that old saree lying at the bottom of your closet, which you thought had now become ‘outdated.’

To End With

Sarees are a go-to for every wedding function, be it as an attendee or a bride. The traditional Indian garment has only gotten popular over the years, quite visible from these celebrity wedding dresses. Today, it has been adopted by Bollywood celebrities into a stylized yet chic outfit that is formal yet fashionable. For this year’s wedding season, Femica suggests that you should definitely consider investing in a beautiful saree that will last you for years to come! Team this up with Femica skincare products, Femica haircare products and Femica Makeup products for a perfect look every time!

1. What is so different about a Sabyasachi Saree?

The Sabyasachi saree uses modern techniques, designs and traditional, high-end and luxurious Indian clothes. The designer also ensures that designing methods of Indian sarees, such as gota work, bandhani, block printing and hand dying, are used to enhance the modern silhouettes of his clients, who are usually Bollywood stars.

2. How do you know if a saree is of good quality?

For a silk saree, Femica suggests that the burn test is perfect for checking the quality of the material. Burn one small corner of the saree or a few stray strands, and you will identify a smell. If the silk is of good quality, this smell will be similar to that of burnt hair, something that you will notice in a good Indian wedding attire

3. How much is the length of the saree?

Since the traditional Indian saree is draped around the waist and over the shoulder, the length of the saree is more. It can vary from 5 to 9 yards (4.5 to 8 meters) in length and 2 to 4 feet (0.60 to 1.2 meters) in width. For a wedding celebration, people prefer more authentic, long sarees.
