So-Saree Readers Speak - Priyanka G

It's time for another So-Saree Reader feature.
And today we have Priyanka G. sharing her love for sarees and So-Saree along with a story about how she picked the perfect saree for her engagement.
Over to you Priyanka..!


Wow! Thanks Aditi for letting me a part of your blog which I have been reading for so many years. Be Indian or western, formal or casuals, your sense of fashion is superb and elegant. Most importantly it’s sensible and easy to follow for any woman. So-Saree helps me to be updated with new trends in market.

I think any Indian girl/woman loves to see herself draped in a saree more than any other dress. I remember when I was a kid; my mother bought me a ‘Kalpana Saree’ specifically made for kids. I use to wear and flaunt it in style on Dashera, Nag Panchami, Sankranti with suitable accessories to complete the dressing.
Saree is such an apparel that suits any event anywhere in the world. All you need to do is  play a bit with accessories and you are done. For the past so many years, I have been wearing sarees but my most memorable moment happened recently during my engagement. As per Maharashtrian tradition, the bride-to-be gets a green saree from her in-laws which needs to be worn for engagement rituals and ring ceremony. My mother-in-law suggested that my fiancĂ© and I should go together and get a green saree of my choice. I was very sure that I wanted a typical Marathi Mulgi look on this most important event of my life. Accordingly the type of saree, jewelry, make-up and hairstyle was clear in my mind.
So, we both went for shopping two sarees – a green saree and another another one from my maternal side. I explained to the sales person at the saree showroom that I was looking for a Maharashtrian style green color zari saree. Within a few minutes, I had finalised my sarees. A peacock green silk saree with zari border and blue pallu from my in-laws side and another turmeric yellow saree with zari border for the maternal side. Surprisingly my shopping was done in 20 minutes and my fiance was astonished at this feat.
I teamed up my saree with heavy golden jhumkas, choker style necklace, banunath (nose ring) and golden todey (bangles) with green chooda and red chandrakor bindi gave the perfect Maharashtrian bride look I had imagined.
I was nervous as everybody’s eyes were on me and my fiance's relatives and friends were curious to meet his choice. Thank God! My equation of saree and accessories was a hit. My fiance and everybody at the ceremony just couldn’t stop complimenting me. And with this I breathed a sigh of relief.














Priyanka, I have now words to describe how stunning you look. And thanks for all the love and appreciation.
