The Ultimate Bridesmaid Sarees Inspiration for 2020

Bridesmaid sarees have never been so easy! Keep reading for the ultimate saree inspiration for bridesmaids.


Colors for sarees is very easy because virtually any color looks beautiful on a saree! A trendy and beautiful style tip is try to use contrasting colors that will make you look like you like a movie star with minimal effort. For example, my favorite color combinations on a saree and desi fashion in general, is pink and red. Nothing says sexy but flirty and youthful like a soft pink and a fire red, like these sarees by Sabyasachi:

Like the image above shows, blue and red is also a beautiful color combination. In general, most contrasting colors look lovely on sarees.

A classic saree color – especially for the spring and summertime – is YELLOW! Yellow is such a youthful and happy color, and perfect for a bridesmaid. Yellow looks especially beautiful against a tan, making you look glowy and like you’re about to step into a Sabyasachi photoshoot.

Sequined sarees are a great way of saying “I may not be the bride, but I’m a VIP” lol. Sequins are perfect for day and night weddings, and especially suitable for a bridesmaid because they’re formal and heavy enough to indicate you’re close to the wedding party, without being so formal that you overshadow the bride. Sequined sarees are also relatively easy to prepare, as you just need sequined or sparkly sparkly and a matching top. Contrasting blouse and skirt for a sequined saree is possible, but sequined sarees are already so loud, it might be overkill. If you do want a contrasting top, though, try finding fabric that isn’t fully sequined, to balance the look! These three sequined Sabyasachi sarees have our hearts:

In the above partially sequined saree, we see a turquoise sequined net saree, balanced by a coral blouse. In this case, the look is perfectly balanced because the partial sequins and contrast top balances together, withouting looking overdone.


Prints are such a fun and colorful way to bring life to your saree and make your outfit more playful and inviting. Nowadays, printed sarees have almost overtaken regular color blocked sarees, with Sbyasachi’s floral printed saree collecton taking over the formal event scene, but florals aren’t the only prints you can wear as a bridesmaid. Sabyasachi took a cool spin on his own floral trend and incorporated darker tones and sequins with abstract floral patterns to create the perfect nighttime summer saree:
