Tamil Brides like to wear heavy Kanjeevaram Sarees. The uniqueness of saree is matched by the bridal jewelery that is mostly in gold. The combination of red and golden color makes the south Indian bride more beautiful.
Bengali Bride in red richly worked upon handloom saree, so well portrayed by Aishwarya Rai, is no hidden secret. The distinguishing feature of a bengali bride is the white head crown. The white color of this crown, against all over red, makes the face of bengali bride glow with beauty.
However, not all Indian brides wear red but yes there is always a stint of red color in their attire. For example, Gujarati brides wear the combination of red and white as their bridal dress. But the fever of red has caught the Gujarati bride too. More and more of them are now dressing less traditionally and wearing red or blue or gold. The above portrait of Rani Mukherjee shows the elegant golden yellow Gujarati bridal wear with a combination of red shade.
Indian wedding is not confined to the wedding day only. There are many other rituals that go along with it spanning many days before and after the big day. In all the other associated functions, the Indian bride loves to wear red which is considered the color of 'suhagan' or the married woman. The above green saree in silk with rich brocade work embellished with sequins, stones, resham and zardosi features the red pallu in crepe with sequins and resham embroidery work- true delight of any Indian Bride.
There are many regions where saree is not the bridal dress but the bridal lehengas are worn like in Rajasthan. However, as the Indian women can't leave the temptation of wearing a red saree, the Rajasthani bride fulfills her wish by wearing red or maroon bridal sarees. This maroon Georgette saree is heavily designed with sequins, stones, beads, zari and floral motifs on the border to give the new bride a feel of Red Indian Bridal Sarees.
