My Wedding Photobook: Part 2 Yellow saree OOTD

The Guy: "Mom, Aditi is wearing a green saree!!!" (read: NOT the yellow one for which she made us run into so many stores. In reality, we only went to 3 stores in one day and I bought this)
His Mom: WHAT!! How can she wear a green saree? It's not allowed!
When I saw the guy at the reception, I jokingly told him that I changed my mind about wearing a yellow saree. The nervous bride in me was trying to be funny. Wrong timing. The even more nervous groom took it seriously and told his mom about it! His mom is the super coolest maharashtrian mom I have come across so far. Even she was not ok with me not wearing yellow during the pheras. So basically, the yellow saree is a big deal in our weddings!

The whole saree is not visible coz of the dozen of things I'm carrying - garland, shela, oti, a sharp object, flower bouquet (I absolutely have no clue why they made me hold that bouquet all through the rituals!). My mom and MIL were busy talking to the guests. We were only surrounded by my cousins and close friends who were equally unaware like both of us. So keep in mind to be as comfortable as possible.
A closer look at the saree details:
It is a orangish-yellow saree in south silk with a purple border. The best part about this saree is the mild red resham work all throughout which gives the saree a rich look. The purple saree border is a big border which usually does not look flattering on petite figures. Although, this had a big border only on one side which gave it that bridal look. The other side had a medium border with less intricate work as that side is barely seen. Remember this not only looks good but also makes the saree cost effective.
Talking about the price, we had no definite budget for this saree as my mom is emotionally attached to these things. Although this saree is the cheapest saree I bought for my wedding. I got it from Vama, Pune. Store review here.


Marathi Weddings Tip: I have mentioned about a bride/groom supposed to keep a sharp object with them all through the wedding in this post explaining the rituals. I followed it like a child. I kept that nail cutter wrapped in a hanky for so long that one of my aunts had to take it away from me during mangalashtakas on photographer's request. Yes! at least somebody from the overpowering women gang (mentioned in this post) had mercy. That hanky used to wipe the chandan-tirtha-tika-etc definitely does not look good in any bride's hand who strives hard for months to look perfect!! After one year of marriage and many more pooja's, I now understand it is not mandatory to follow all this mundane rituals. The last wedding I attended, the bride was told not to keep any sharp objects with her. So it is all relative - choose what suits you best.


Jewellery Details: I only replaced the Emerald set with the following. Rest jewellery details same as Wedding OOTD Part 1.
  • Ruby Necklace (Earings can be seen in Engagement OOTD)
  • Gold+Pearl Necklace set

Both from Waman Hari Pethe, Gokhale road - Dadar.

    1. Thank you Dia. This is a clip on too! I got it from a store in Pune. You can get it from any Maharashtrian jeweller. In Mumbai, I would recommend Waman Hari pethe and P N Gadgil - multiple branches, Paranjpe jewellers - Girgaum
