Bridesmaid is a woman, usually one of several who accompanies the bride on her wedding day. To help her with her bridezilla moments and keep her calm when those butterflies start to flutter too much. The pee-helper, teeth-checker, shoulder to cry on and shopping buddy!! Gone are the days when the bridesmaides had to wear tacky dresses to oblige the bride. Today’s modern bride is a confident woman who knows that she will look more picture perfect surrounded by beautifully dressed up bridesmaides.

Now, someone who comes in a definition like that deserves to look glamorous on the wedding day! More than getting dressed for ones own wedding, it is far more exciting to get dressed for a friend’s/ sister’s wedding! Choosing outfits for all the events and deciding the jewellery and stuff is way too exciting. The best part then, as bridesmaids, is getting the big days’s outfit. After the bride, bridesmaides or the “saalis” are the ones who are looked upon, so they need to look stunningly well. Don’t you think so? Signifying poise and grace, a saree marks the beauty of a woman. Do you also share the same emotions for Sarees like I do? Then we have hit the right note and you are going to love what I have in store today! Here’s a look for the bridesmaides to sweep of one’s feet on the wedding day!!

With a plethora of ideas to choose from, you don’t have pick from the usual floor length gowns for the bridesmaids’ look. We guess no one can ever say Sarees are too mainstream. However, I do believe it won’t give the hit if worn in the same clichéd way like we used to in 90s. No offence to anyone, but ­gone are the days when sarees full of work defined elegance. Plain sarees with a beautiful fabric and an elaborate border are sheer elegance, specially for the young and beautiful bridesmaids. And when these sarees are draped in a unique style, it adds more to the look. This wedding season, ditch the usual wedding colours and go for a beautiful black saree that stands out. Generally, people avoid wearing black on weddings but how about rebelling and setting a new trend?

So, in case you are looking for that perfect bridesmaid’s outfit, Strawberry Fashion Studio by Aditi Jaggi Rastogi has a variety of trendy and unique designs for each one. The wedding season is in and every woman who is to-be-bridesmaid is going gaga over her outfit. It is rather important for the bridesmaid to look her best and stand out in the crowd. Try something different this wedding season and go for a readymade differently draped saree. It is something out of the box because not many bridesmaids pull off this outfit for their dear one’s wedding. Carrying this saree with grace can do wonders to your bridesmaid’s look. This draped saree is kind of unique and looks great on anybody from average to tall in height. It is easy to wear and carry. This style screams of the huge bouts of experimentation that have undergone in the saree fashion arena. If you’re looking to make a strong fashion statement, then a draped saree by Strawberry Fashion Studio is the way to go!

Accept it girls, most of us are scared wearing a saree because we don’t know how to actually drape it. But we all love the six yard piece of elegance. And at some point in life, we do wish to wear a sexy saree with the stunning drape highlighting our curves in the most beautiful way. But now no more staying at mercy of moms to help you get one draped because at strawberry Fashion Studio, you get this exclusive stitched saree draped beautifully. If edgy and sexy is what you wanna go for, then Strawberry is a great label to consider! Their outfits are so effortlessly sexy and flawless in some trendy dark hues! Perfect for the bridesmaides.

And, my MUA, Simran Taneja helped me a lot to get ready for the bridesmaid’s look. She highlighted my eyes with glitter and gave me a red shade on my lips which complimented the black saree perfectly. Coming to the hair, she gave me loose curls that added much volume and looked beautiful. Kudos to her super amazing skills!

Last but not the least, do not forget to wear your confidence high, combined with a nice fragrance and trust me you’d just stand a class apart in the crowd. This wedding is special for you since you are the bridesmaid, and you should be enjoying every bit of it. It is all about feeling important, you see! Because you are worth it!
