South Indian Brides Who Wore Pastel Colored Silk Sarees

The story of the Kanjivaram silk saree is intertwined with the history, culture and mythology of South India. The Kanjivaram or Kanchipuram pattu weave dates back 400 years to the small village of Kanchipuram in Tamil Nadu.


It was the King Krishna Devaraya of the Vijayanagara Empire who patronized the art. It is said that two Andhra communities – the Devangas and the Saligars relocated to Kanchipuram to be able to use their weaving skills in bettering the craft.

Even in 2020, the craze for the Kanjivaram silk saree has not diminished a bit.


Pastels can be perfectly defined as a colour tone that doesn’t need to scream to be heard. The subtle hues of pastel shades are fast replacing the bright, jarring colours because of their sheer elegance. In recent times, we have observed a major shift in the choice of colour palettes at our Indian weddings and they all point to pastels. No, it’s not just wedding guests and bridesmaids but even the brides themselves who sport various shades of ivory, mint, and coral shades for their weddings.

When it comes to accessorising, both cool toned and warm toned jewellery work like magic with this palette. Hence, white gold, platinum, diamonds, emeralds and antique jewellery alike go so well together with pastel shades!

Here’s a look-book we’ve put together just for you so you know exactly how to wear this dreamy shade right!
