Have you been eyeing your mother’s antique saree? Or your grand mom’s string of pearls? You’re not alone. These are not just any pieces—but heirlooms that were once worn by the women who shaped your personality and childhood.
Welcome back to our last special with Be For Beauty and Truly Bridal by Kalyan Jewellers. A tradition that has been valid for generations, heirlooms is an important part of a wedding. It is essential to carry a bit of your family’s values with a vintage piece – Wedding Special. Here is Sanna Vohra’s video to reinvent a few key pieces.
- Traditional weaves like Phulkari or prints like Kanjivaram and Banarasi prints are great to pair with a contrasting crop top and skirt. This is a great balance of the old and the new and would be great for a Mehendi or a Sangeet ceremony.
- It’s always a good idea to pair a traditional sari (embroidered or printed) with a modern blouse.
- Opt for a knotted, katan or backless blouse, or even an embellished blouse piece that adds more glamour to your ensemble. If you’re a fan of full sleeves, you can tell your tailor to make it with net sleeves giving it a twist.
- When wearing an heirloom lehenga, make sure you hire a tailor or designer to ensure of no faux pas, on the big wedding day. You can make changes to the choli or just go for another blouse with contemporary embroidery of your choice. She recommends working with fabrics like raw silk, jacquard or brocade.
4. Palazzo pants are back in style, which means it,’s a great moment for us to wear our long, tapered kurtis—an ideal outfit for wedding dinners and reception parties. Pair with traditional gold jewellery.
5. Finally, if you’re not a sari or a lehenga person, make the most of these heirlooms by making them into salwaar kameez or beautiful anarkalis.
