18 Times Brides Gave Us Major Saree Inspiration for Haldi & Mehndi Ceremonies

By Divya Arora .

For the sheer opulence and royal elegance it exudes, a saree is both a wardrobe staple and a trousseau essential for women of all ages and there’s no denying that. In fact, one would often come across brides donning those six yards on their wedding ceremonies sporting an all regal look. And no, we’re not only talking about the engagement or wedding day or reception dinner.

In this age while some brides are experimenting with their outfits the most on their haldi and mehndi ceremonies, we came across some brides reinstating the classics i.e., wearing a saree on these ceremonies too. And because we couldn’t help but fall in love with their looks, we fished out those looks and compiled them here for you for some inspiration.
