Welcome to our new identity. Welcome to WeddingBazaar!

The new year calls for new bridal fashion trends. And guess what, we are all set to uncover the biggest bridal trend of 2022! A saree styled with a veil on the head. Sounds familiar already? We are sure, it does. Brides have been embracing this since time immemorial but it has recently made a major comeback and how! Even celebrity brides like Katrina Kaif and Dia Mirza approved of it during their wedding celebrations. Traditional with a whiff of contemporary is the mantra for most modern brides and slipping into a saree with a veil on the head resonates with the same quite well. Moreover, this also fits the minimal bridal look aesthetic, which is going to take the lead again due to the onset of intimate weddings.

To help you ace this subtly traditional look at your wedding, we fetch you inspiration from none other than a few real brides who nailed it in the recent past. Let's get started already!

Real Brides Who Stunned In Wedding Saree & Veil 

Lightweight Yet Heavy On Emotions

Fashion influencer Tarini Manchanda broke the internet with her repurposed wedding look. She opted for her mother's old red chiffon saree and got it upcycled with a border from her great-grandmother's saree. For the jewels, the diva bride looked no further than the precious heirlooms. A personalised veil, featuring excerpts of letters she got from her grandparents, completed her look. Minimal but heavy on emotions, her bridal glory garnered oodles of love on social media and validated the comeback of the saree & veil duo.

Modern Look With Traditional Touches

Alia Bhatt's school friend Meghna Goyal, who runs a fashion label, recently tied the knot in a lavish Mumbai wedding. The diva bride beautifully blended modern and traditional aesthetics for her wedding look. She donned a printed ruffle saree and teamed it with a flowy scalloped red veil. An embroidered blouse, heavy gold kadas, and a statement choker lent the traditional dulhan feels! Gorgeous is an understatement to describe her bridal repertoire, believe us.

Keep The All-Traditional Charm Intact!

If your heart yearns for a traditional bridal look but your mind is already dreading the extra kilos it comes with, you ought to take cues from Patralekhaa Paul who recently got married to Rajkummar Rao in an intimate Chandigarh wedding. Her bridal look came drenched in old-world charm but in a fuss-free style. She opted for a red Banarasi Sabyasachi saree and styled it with ornate jewels. A sheer veil with a personalised veil was the perfect finishing touch.

Minimal Elegance!

Ever-so-gorgeous Dia Mirza too took the minimal route for her intimate backyard wedding with Vaibhav Rekhi. A red silk saree from the label Raw Mango and a minimally-adorned veil was her choice for the D-day. She even went low-key with her jewels and ditched the ornate baubles with dainty ones. Everything about her bridal look screamed elegant and graceful.

In case you want to add a contemporary spin to your saree and veil look, we sure now know where to seek inspiration from!

Channel The Maximalist Bride In You!

Here's yet another bride who rocked a bridal saree at her wedding and amped it up with a veil on her head. Heavy traditional jewels, contrasting green bangles, and minimal make-up rounded off her look. You can go maximal as well as the minimal route with the saree-veil combo. And Shambhavi proved how to ace the former style.

Bring In The Vintage Appeal

Last but not the least, the newlywed Katrina Kaif too gave a thumbs up to this trend as she slipped into a floral sheer saree for one of her wedding celebrations. This ensemble was an ode to her mother's British roots. And it was a dramatic flowy veil that completed her look.

Final Words

Moreover, you can style it any way you like - intact with traditional touches or infused with a modern vibe - whichever better screams your style.
