Mysore silk

Coming from the State of royalty and regal lineage, the Mysore silk is a beautiful piece to adorn for an occasion such as this. Go for deep reds and cold blues. Accessorise with the traditional jasmine flowers and gold bangles to add to the ethnic factor.

Kerala mundusilk

The lovely combination of white and gold will make you look no less than a goddess figurine. The Kerala silk will look exquisite with gold jewellery and an up bun with flowers. Go for elaborate bindis to add to the look.
