So, it is advisable to go for something that is evergreen. For instance, take a look at the newlywed Anushka Sharma’s outfit and accessories of her Reception in Delhi. They will look good many years from now too!
#1. Simple Banarasi Saree
For her reception in Delhi, Anushka looked splendid in a red banarasi saree that had intricate golden motifs and a thin zardosi border, designed by renowned designer Sabyasachi. According to the designer, “I don’t think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions. Anushka decided to wear red on her reception. And much to my absolute delight, it would be a red Banarasi saree.”
He also said, “Bollywood can play a major role in spreading awareness about Indian textiles and handlooms. And I must say the occasion couldn’t be better. I know copies of this sari will flood the entire country in the next few months to come, which also means that a million weaver’s children will be back at school. All I can say is thank you Anushka!”
#2. Choker Set
Anushka teamed up her red saree with an uncut diamond set - Jhumka choker set and matching jhumkas. The jewellery was also from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewelry collection. It seems, Anushka trusts him for all her outfits. From the wedding in Italy to the reception in Delhi and Mumbai, all of Anushka’s outfits and accessories have been designed by Sabyasachi.

#3. Traditional Indian Bun
Instead of getting a typical elaborate hairdo at a salon, Anushka opted for the traditional Indian bun. She looked magnificent with this hairdo and it added to her personality. It didn’t look artificial unlike other hairstyles like a high bun or curls. The center parting with the sindoor showing, complete the look of the traditional Indian Bride.

Not only did Anushka look great in her saree, she also enjoyed a lot and was able to move around comfortably, unlike the case of heavily sequined lehngas and gowns. Sarees are pretty easy to carry and this has been proved by the fact that Anushka danced to the songs of Gurdas Mann with a currency note in her mouth!
