‘Din shagna da chadheya, aao sakhiyon ni vehra sajeya’

As the traditional wedding song echoes in the backdrop and the bride makes her grand entry, she experiences a gust of emotions. Adorned in resplendent hues of crimson and gold, she takes each step towards the new chapter of her life. The atmosphere is charged with an ineffable energy, a blend of joy, nostalgia and the excitement of new beginnings. The emotional bridal entry becomes one of the most important events of her life and her ensemble narrates a tale of love and commitment. Donning red on such a momentous occasion, which symbolises the culmination of a beautiful love story, is truly befitting. Add to that a touch of gold, and the ensemble becomes a manifestation of not just love but also timeless elegance.

The red and gold combination casts a radiant glow on the occasion, much like the warmth and brilliance of the new journey that the couple is about to begin together. The classic red and gold combination becomes more than just a colour palette; it is a reflection of the love that radiates from the couple and the blessings that surround them on this special day.

If you’re looking for red and gold sarees designed for wedding celebrations, your search ends here. Take a look at some recommendations of traditional bridal wear featuring the luxurious pairing of red and gold.

Regal Banarasis

The quintessential choice for a bride on her momentous wedding day is the glorious Banarasi saree, draped in a rich crimson shade. The choice of the colour adds layers of significance to the bridal attire. The rich crimson hue symbolises love and passion, while the signature golden zari weaves of a Banarasi saree add a touch of regal opulence to the ensemble. The red Banarasi saree, thus, becomes a canvas upon which the bride's emotions are vividly expressed in the form of the gorgeous zari weaves.

As the bride gets set for the big day, the golden zari weaves gracefully dance on the crimson Banarasi saree, as if choreographed by the hands of skilled artisans with generational talent. Each glimmering thread tells a tale of craftsmanship, tradition and timeless beauty, intricately intertwined to create a mesmerising tapestry of elegance. The handwoven patterns on Taneira’s range of bridal Banarasi sarees include florals, paisleys and geometric patterns like stripes, squares, diamonds and checks, among others. These motifs not only make each saree a wearable piece of art but also a symbol of tradition making it a cherished choice for brides-to-be and newlyweds.

Timeless Kanjivarams

From the careful selection of pure Silk threads to the complex weaving process that interlaces the silk threads with the zari, the entire process of making a Kanjivaram saree is a blend of artistry, tradition and precision. The result is a saree that is a stunning work of art that reflects the cultural heritage and craftsmanship of the weavers. Draped in a magnificent Kanjivaram saree, the bride becomes a vision of timeless elegance. Thus, a Kanjivaram saree becomes the epitome of bridal sophistication.

Kanjivaram sarees are complete with borders and pallu that adorn elaborate zari embroidery in gold. While the motifs on the pallu range from florals and paisleys to peacock-inspired designs, the borders often stand out with a display of solid gold. In other words, the bold and regal gold borders provide a striking contrast to the deep red tones of the saree and complement the symbolic motifs on the pallu. The intricate storytelling on the pallu and the resplendent borders collectively contribute to the allure of the saree, making it a treasured heirloom piece.

Pristine Paithanis

The Paithani saree is much loved for its rich Silk fabric, vibrant shades of red and elaborate zari work on the pallu and borders that incorporates other lively colours to create exquisite patterns. The distinctive charm of the peacock and floral patterns on the pallu has elevated its appeal, drawing admiration not only in Maharashtra but also across the diverse landscapes of the country. Handwoven with precision and care, the zari work adds a touch of opulence to the ensemble, framing the bride in a radiant glow as she steps into the new chapter of her life.

A red Paithani saree indeed makes a stunning choice for the bridal outfit. The gold zari work shines like a ray of sunlight on the deep red Paithani saree. With every fold and pleat, the Paithani saree whispers tales of cultural richness and heritage, weaving a narrative that transcends time. The bride can thus honour tradition and embody grace as she dons her one-of-a-kind Paithani saree for the special day. As she walks down the aisle, the peacock motifs on the pallu seem to dance in celebration and the florals make the entire setting seem flawless.

Ethereal Jamdanis

For the brides who like to go off the beaten path but still incorporate traditional elements in their wedding attire, Jamdani sarees are a wonderful choice. Jamdanis, with their delicate Muslin fabric and meticulously hand woven motifs, allow for fluid movements, creating a fusion of comfort and regal aesthetics. The deep red hue, reminiscent of love and auspicious beginnings, forms the perfect backdrop for the intricate gold Jamdani weave that unfolds a tale of timeless craftsmanship.

What makes a Jamdani saree stand out are the intricate weaves and artistic motifs crafted through a labour-intensive handloom weaving process. These motifs not only add to the visual appeal of the saree but also carry cultural and symbolic significance. From a wide range of florals, paisleys and folk art inspired designs to bird and animal figures, geometric patterns and elaborate lattice like patterns, the diversity of these motifs contributes to the uniqueness of Jamdani sarees. Choosing a Jamdani saree for your bridal outfit is a thoughtful decision, encapsulating a blend of tradition, artistry and sheer elegance.

Elegant Tussars

A Tussar saree is a mark of elegance, making it a stylish option for the bridal ensemble. Taneira’s collection of sophisticated Tussar Silk sarees in red and gold showcase intricate handwoven motifs that you’re sure to fall in love with. Tussar Silk sarees often flaunt motifs that draw inspiration from nature, folklore. What’s more, the slightly coarse texture of Tussar adds depth and character to the saree and the natural sheen of the fabric creates a lustrous effect that complements the bride's radiance.

While Tussar sarees look stunning in every colour, the hand woven motifs truly come alive on the striking red textured canvas. Each motif gracefully moves across the radiant red fabric, harmonising with the brilliance of gold, creating a breathtaking choreography of design. The opulent touch of gold embroidery and embellishments not only enhances the luxurious texture of the Tussar Silk but adds a regal touch to the saree, making it perfectly suited for a bridal ensemble.

Styling Tips for Wedding Sarees

While the styling of wedding sarees depends on individual preferences, here are some recommendations to help you dress up on your big day:

  • Since red and gold is a very traditional Indian combination, traditional Indian jewellery goes best with it. Opting for pure gold jewellery is always a great option and depending on the embellishments on your saree, you can even try out kundan jewellery with a touch of colour with rubies or emeralds.

  • Experiment with the colour of your blouse and even the style. A traditional round neck with doris or a long koti style blouse will look beautiful with a heritage saree.

  • Choose makeup that complements the colours of your saree, opting for a balance between bold and subtle. A well-matched bindi can also enhance your bridal look.

  • If you’d like, you can wear a gold waist belt over your saree to add a touch of royalty to your outfit.

  • When it comes to draping styles, you can try out different regional styles depending on the saree you choose. Or, feel free to experiment and add a modern twist to the traditional saree.

The evergreen colours of red and gold are indeed perfect for the bridal outfit. Taneira boasts of a rich collection of sarees in these classic bridal colours and you’re sure to fall in love with each and every one of them.
