Such lahangas made out from the fine clothes with its matching choli duly having extra ordinary zari or other traditional or semi-traditional work done on it. This is again the costly affair. In the ancient times our grand parents used to believe that only the RED or the GREEN and the WHITE colors were auspicious and accepted the most for any holy festivals or rituals like wedding. 

So in other words the brides were directed to choose their wedding saree or costumes made out of any preferred clothe but had to be of any of the three stipulated colors. The civilized society currently thinks of going for even brighter color shades with floral or geometrical design patterns. The most preferred colors by the reputed designers and even the young brides nowadays include purple, orange, blue, pink or deep green or the combination of multi-colors as and when the stipulated design demands. 

It is universally believed that the fashion always repeats or rather the old is gold. The younger generations today prefers wearing their mother's saree or even the grand mother's saree duly redesigned with various additions and alterations. Even the extra ornamental accessories are fitted like precious stones, zari, mirrors or elegant satin or silk boarders with heavily embroidered on it. All these together makes the old piece of saree exclusively comparable with the modern saree yet look rather more attractive. With such sarees the semi-traditional accessories looks charming and adds to the glory of the bride. 
Fresh floral accessories especially made for the Indian bride's hairstyle decoration has an extra ordinary impact in terms of look. 

The Hindu brides usually have to put on two different sarees one over the other, of which one is from her parent's side and the other ritually given by her in-law's side. This very sarees are of quite importance while attending the wedding functions of the close family members. It adds to the glory of the lady making her the centre of attraction.

The wedding saree has to be well preserved because as per the ritual formalities the lady when dies her body has to be covered with the very saree on the way to her funeral-pyre.
