We’ve seen our share of Sabyasachi lehengas and drapes, and we loved them. From minimal embroideries to heavier designs, the ace designer manages to make every bride showcase her own style of individualism. This week, we put together a unique list of brides who opted for saris instead of the quintessential lehenga.
It’s a known fact that most South Indian women prefer the ubiquitous kanjeevarams and a large percentage of North Indian brides go for a lehenga. We found the ones who chose the path less travelled – brides who picked out subtler, effortless dressing in stylish Sabyasachi saris. Take a look and pick our your inspiration because each one is a testament to a bride who knows her mind and dares to be different.
