i wore a sari to a wedding recently… I got two while I was in India, and so I love any opportunity to wear them!

Thanks for the link!  The tool for filtering sari based on color is extremely helpful.  For my Hindu ceremony, I’m just requesting that all my girls (not limited to bridesmaids) wear indian clothes in chartreuse. I have a few outfits in the color in case there’s someone who doesn’t.  But then again, nearly all my sahelis are south asian. 

For the evening ceremony, in which the bridesmaids will walk, I’m having them wear matching purple, preferably bandhani, saris with blouses that they’ve designed themselves.  That way, a bit of each bridesmaid’s personality shows.  The only person in a different sari will be my matron of honor.

I’m letting everyone change into whatever they want after introductions are made during the reception merely because it’s not easy to dance in a sari.  I don’t even like wearing them for receptions!

Fun topic! My bridesmaids are also wearing sarees and I’ve given them the option of changing or not for the reception, depending on what they feel like. Like you, sonipapdi, my bridesmaids are wearing different colors because I felt that making them all wear the same one just wouldn’t be as flattering. I’ve chosen plain sarees in five colors and they have all have a gold border which ties them all together. My fiance’s groomsmen are all wearing the same colored kurta sets and I hope that it all looks good together!

I really like this idea… Saris are gorgeous.

Way to be creative!
