The modern-day bride has a cornucopia of fashions to select her wedding dress. And each culture has its own way of dressing up the bride for the wedding day. From lehengas up North to sarees down South. From the Patiala suit of the Sikh bride to the gowns of the Christian bride, the options are endless! And the sharara-gharara style suit that many Muslim brides opt for is another brilliant idea for your wedding trousseau.

If you are not sure of the difference between a sharara and a gharara, fear not! Both were made popular in the Mughal era by women of the court donning this style for special occasions. The only difference between the two styles is the pants - a sharara comes with flared pants, almost balloon-like and a gharara has pants that are fitted to the knee, and flare out from under the knee only!

We have bookmarked some elegant Muslim brides that completely blew our minds with their sharara-gharara selections! Take a look and get inspired!
