Now let us move on to some more heavy silk sarees, that are not Kanjeevarams, but can be equally beautiful. India is a land of different textiles. While people down South do not try out Banarasi much, they have surely warmed up to it in the recent past.

We love these warm hues of these Banarasi sarees- be it the engagement or the Muhurtham a Banarasi is equally traditional and classy as a Kanjeevaram. The bride can also wear similar jewelry too!!

The next heavy silk saree that has been literally “adopted” in South Indian – especially Telugu wedding sis the Paithani silk. We have told you already how Telugu brides are slaying their Muhurthams in Paithani weave. It is unique and a perfect choice for the Muhurtham if you are looking for something special. Take care to pre order this as a handwoven Paithani takes a couple of months minimum to be done.

A patan patola saree in double ikat is actually something unique. Woven and protected by just a few groups of weavers, a patan patola saree would be something that would make a meaningful addition to your trousseau and also give a different dimension to your look. We love the way the patan patola has been styled to give a modern vibe!
