Sarees are also spelt as Sari or Shari. The Saree is a traditional Indian garment worn by women. The Saree is made up of one long piece of fabric which is at least 5 meters long but may be as long as 8 meters, it is usually between 60cm and 120cm wide. It is wrapped around the body and draped over the shoulder. One of the best things about Sarees is that you dont need to worry about getting the right size one as if there is too much fabric you can just wrap it around one more time!
What Colour Saree to Wear to an Indian Wedding
When Saree’s are worn day to day the colour will often be chosen based on the colour of the mood which the saree wearer wishes to express on that particular day. However as a wedding is a day of joy and celebration the saree you wear should reflect that so don’t be afraid to go for bright, bold coloured sarees that will stand out. However make sure you don’t wear a white saree as they are traditionally worn to funerals, it’s also a good idea to avoid Red too as this colour is usually worn by the bride.
