How To Be A Contemporary South Indian Bride!

BY Sakshi | 20 Mar, 2018 | 27429 views | 4 min read

North Indian, South Indian, the divisions are sort of blurring these days a little, with both brides really getting inspired by one another- and with all the '2 States' weddings we are having these days, there are a lot of fusion brides we are spotting who are really taking things to the next level. So if a contemporary South Indian bride is what you desire to be, then take a few pointers from our list below! 

Pick a kanjivaram with a cool motif

Whether it's an animal motif or butis that you like, kanjivarams with cool motifs really stand out well!

... or in a cool colour combination!

Cool colour combinations to make you really stand out- there is no limit to it and so many amazing options out there!

Try a new draping style!

The can can drape looks super cool, as do other alternative styles! Check some of them out here

Or just wear a Kanjivaram lehenga instead in a modern way!

Kanjivaram lehengas are our new love, and we love how modern yet traditional they look! This works especially well if you're having a North meets South wedding!

Try a cool blouse design with that traditional saree

I mean, that's like a piece of art! Blouses with interesting backs are trending these days, and God motifs are quite pretty! 

Or you could even choose to personalise your blouse!

Now this is another cool idea that we are seeing brides adopt- just make your blouse personalised and special!

Or a completely contrasting blouse on a plain saree which pops so well!

Contrasting blouses with modern designs against the traditional gold sarees- so pretty!


Carry a dupatta with your Kanjeevaram saree

This works especially well if you're having a North meets South wedding!

You could also add a pop of uniqueness to your saree with your jewellery

Notice how this bride's saree has a pop of maroon via jewellery to really make it unique? Yep, we love how it adds to the charm. 

Pick new age jewellery- diamonds with emeralds or rubies...

No bride can go wrong with diamonds and emeralds or rubies- especially if you're picking a monotone or gold saree- looks so so amazing! 

Or go for a twist on the classic with modern temple jewellery

Try some glam bridal makeup with highlighting and contouring, or a smokey eye or an extremely bold lip, do not hesitate to experiment with your bridal makeup- but make sure after a trial!

Or your hairstyle!

Whether you choose to keep them open or in a bun, there's no harm in trying something new as opposed to the floral braid!

This Baahubali look is oh-so-popular and we think you can add your own twist to it!

You could go nuts with the blouse design: With temple jewellery and chains
