When in doubt, opt for something as timeless as a Silk-kissed Six Yards! You can never go wrong with a Jamdaani, Benarasi or Patola. You can go contemporary or absolutely traditional to look absolutely gorgeous. You can incorporate an urban Blouse design like a Cold shoulder or a Cape. Team this up with neatly pinned hair and a tiny rose in your hair.
- Palazzo Plaza
Palazzos are currently dominating the Ethnic fashion world. Palazzo suits seamlessly blend style and sophistication into one attire and are the perfect Wedding accompaniment.
