There is absolutely no doubt that Punjabi and Sikh women make some of the finest Indian brides. This may also be true because they have always done things rather differently. Since the Anand Karaj takes place during the daytime in a gurudwara, these brides were among the first ones to don pastel hues on their big day. Many of them even changed the trend of donning a lehenga and going with unique silhouettes on their wedding day. Oh, and don’t even get us started on their fabulous makeup choices. Yes, we told you these ladies do things differently!

That is why, in honour of these ladies, today we have done a roundup of some spectacular shararas we spotted on Punjabi and Sikh brides for their Anand Karaj ceremony. Whether you’re a to-be bride or someone who simply enjoys beautiful clothes, scroll below and get ready to bookmark these looks!

In hues of cherry and plum, Sara looked gorgeous in this velvet kalidar that was paired with coral dupatta, and the motifs that were derived from a melange of vintage textiles, 16th-century Persian carpets and 18th century French Paisley shawls. In addition, her bridal sharara also had pretty intricate zardozi work using Resham, dabka, hand-cut sequins, and semi-precious stones.
