How to Style Summer Wedding Sarees: Guide to Choose the Right Fabric

Oh, my Gawd, you are getting married in the Summers of the Indian continent - that will be a killer. With the scorching heat pouring down the sun showers right overhead, we know that the summer wedding dates are also very auspicious, as per Hindu mythology. 

Moreover, the vegetables to an abundant supply of meat all occur in the Summer, which is very different from the winter weddings - but think of the bride, those heavy ornaments, and the traditional heavy work banarasi - she won't be a showstopper but rather a sweat missile!

When deciding on a saree for a summer wedding, where do you even begin? The last thing you'd want to wear on a hot July afternoon is dark hues and luxurious fabrics like silk or velvet.

So, let us see what are those fabrics we can choose - 

Revive the Tissue Banarasi

The tissue is definitively sheer, suave, and soothing! Pick a tissue georgette saree in hues of the early morning sky with gold butis for a stunning addition to your summer wedding wardrobe, or own a Tissue Banarasi silk saree in sunset hues with a floral jaal and an elaborate pallu to make a striking splash at the wedding ceremony.

Oozy Organza Banarasi

Ooze oodles of oomph in a classic organza banarasi saree. Choose an esthetically embellished with sequins in pastels to keep your woes away on balmy days. Opt for an organza Banarasi for the perfect symphony between garnished and gossamer.

Timeless Muga Silk Banarasi 

Muga silk sarees have remained a timeless tantalizer for the ages. Choose from beautifully ornamented and light zari work sarees with motifs inspired by the milieus of the season, gilded with intricate details in warm, vivid hues to brighten your fashion quotient.

Summer-Favorite Crepe Kanjis

Airy fabric and effortless draping make crepe kanji silks an everlasting summertime favorite! This wedding season, select a crepe saree with an all-over zari weave effect and kanji-inspired designs to personify class and comfort.

Charm of Lighter Kanjeevarams

Kanjeevaram is an eternal favorite with brides and their families, as well as even the bridesmaids. For summer celebrations, opt for lighter variations, such as Organza Kanchi and Tissue Kanchi, that defy the age-old notion of ‘heavy’ Kanjeevarams in shades of the season. If design differentiation is what you are looking for, check out Banarasi designs on Kanchi sarees to experience the best of both worlds.
