Every woman, at least once in her life wants to dress up in a Sabyasachi outfit especially when she is about to live through one of the most important day of her life, which is her wedding. It is the rich detailed embroidery, the royal colours and the opulent fabrics that set the House of Sabyasachi apart from other bridal designers. Right from Anushka and Virat to Priyanka and Nick, no celebrity wedding is ever complete without Sabyasachi’s touch. However, everything beautiful has its price and these bridal looks are certainly not what every one of us can afford, so here are some trends which you must keep in mind when you curate your wedding trousseau, if you want to look like a Sabyasachi bride.

The signature reds:

As India’s leading designer, Sabyasachi is someone who we all look up to when it comes to fashion, and he makes sure that he never lets us down with his impeccable designs and exquisite colour choices. However one thing about him that is classic is his love for red, which can be seen in a lot of his work throughout his graciously interminable career.

The classic bold red is exactly what makes his designs beyond tempting and what makes the bride look beyond beautiful. A red outfit is a must have for every Indian bride as it the colour of love and passion, and you should definitely don it at least once during any of pre-wedding ceremonies, if not your marriage.

The unusual pastels:

If not anything else, it was definitely a mad frenzy that we went into when we first saw Anushka Sharma wear a pale pink Sabyasachi lehenga for her wedding. We can surely credit him for changing the typical Indian tradition of wearing bright bold hues on the wedding day, by introducing elegant and graceful pastels into the world of bridal fashion. We recommend you to opt for pastel colours if you want a simple and not too over-the-top look. You can also choose to wear these colours for your pre-wedding ceremonies, and then proceed onto a heavier and much bolder look for your wedding day.

Pastel or hue, florals are the way to go:

Whether you choose a red lehenga or a pastel pink one, a bride can never look dull in a floral print or embellishment. You can opt for flowers as they not only look refreshing, but they also add a lot of drama to the lehengas and enhance the bride’s glow.

The must-have Banarasis:

Sabyasachi has always spoken about how he likes to stay rooted to the ethnic and the pure cultural traditions. He loves the conventional materials and designs and is someone who has brought a lot of dying Indian trends to life. One of his most famous love affairs is his love for Banarasi sarees and lehengas. He is responsible for bringing them into mainstream fashion industry and showing people how a Banarasi saree is an essential for every bride’s trousseau.

I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions. Anushka decided to wear red on her reception. And much to my absolute delight, it would be a red Benarasi saree. From the by-lanes of Peeli Kothi in Benaras. I was particularly excited about this look because I have seen an entire generation of Bengali women getting married in red Benarasi sarees. The red bindi, the sindoor and the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful. She chose to wear heritage uncut diamond choker and jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. Bollywood can play a major role in spreading awareness about Indian textiles and handlooms. And I must say the occasion couldn’t be better. I know copies of this saree will flood the entire country in the next few months to come, which also means that a million weaver’s children will be back at school. All I can say is thank you Anushka! Virat chose to complement his new bride in a very subtle and elegant manner. He wore a black textured silk signature bandhgala with the house buttons in 18k gold and a white silk kurta with hand-woven brocade churidaar. He teamed it with mojris from the Sabyasachi accessories line and a hand-embroidered antique Pashmina shawl from our ‘Kashmir Revival’ project. @anushkasharma @virat.kohli @bridesofsabyasachi @groomsofsabyasachi @tajdiplomaticenclave For all jewellery related queries, kindly contact #Sabyasachi #TheWorldOfSabyasachi #SabyasachiJewelry #AnushkaSharmaViratKohliReception #Virushka #AnushkaSharma #ViratKohli

The alluring Embroidery:

Embroideries are not only appealing to the eye, but they also make an outfit look rich and luxurious. You can opt for light embellishments, but nothing is as beautiful as the heavily embroidered Sabyasachi gowns. In case it sails your boat, here are some majestically embroidered Sabyasachi gowns for your reference.

Accessorize like it’s nobody’s business:

As a bride one of the most important things is how you accessorize your bridal outfits. From chokers to long layered neckpieces, Sabyasachi has taught us that nothing is too much. More than the amount of jewellery you wear, what is important is how you style them with each other.
