Bling It On: Embroidery And Sequins That Best Suits Bridal Attire

Updated on February 1, 2016

Indian women have an inborn talent for carrying off embroidery and sparkling sequins in a myriad of colors, be it on clothing, jewelry, bags, and shoes. Every proud Indian loves to flaunt their rich ethnic heritage by adorning artistic embellishments, using zari work, motifs, and sequins. Craftsmen are spoilt for choice with so many traditional techniques related to Indian ethnic wear like zari, resham, stone-work and bead work. So, when there is a wedding around the corner, brides obviously want to look and feel like royalty in their Indian Wedding Sarees and lehenga, reflecting their inherent elegance, grandeur, and femininity.

If you are an Indian bride-to-be, can you imagine wearing a saree that has no embroidery and sequins work done over it? Impossible! Indian wedding attire is simply incomplete without embroidery and sequins done all over it or, at least, on the pallu area. The best part of Indian wedding attire is that you can choose from various types of embroidery and sequins work done over it. So, let us have a look at the embroideries and sequins that best suits a Wedding Lehenga and sarees.

Amazing embroideries for wedding attires


Gota Patti

Gota Patti border gives sparkle to bridal lehenga designs and sarees, which are perfect for special occasions. This metal embroidery originated in Rajasthan cities like Jaipur, Ajmer, Udaipur, where craftsmen used an applique technique with metals like gold and silver. So, this embroidery would definitely look good on bright colored fabrics like pink and bright red. Even today, Rajasthani Gota work is commonly seen on dupattas and ghagras that belong to Rajasthani women.


Resham embroidery

Resham embroidery is a very common form of embroidery that is found in India, which combines golden and colored thread (zari or brocade) on silk or georgette fabric. Sometimes, to make the resham embroidery look, even more stunning, some designers add stones along with the reshma border to increase the sparkle, especially on a bridal lehenga choli.


Awadhi embroidery

Awadhi embroidery mostly consists of floral motifs in zardozi. In Awadhi embroidery, the floral motifs are embroidered in pure golden zari with salma, sitara, and other precious stones, mainly on a piece of velvet. This embroidery looks really luxurious, and brides who will be donning a lehenga or saree having Awadhi embroidery would look simply stunning.


Sizzling bridal sequins

cutdana sequins

Stones that have been cut into specific angles in order to facilitate the reflection of light are called cutdana. These sequins are really trending, and almost every bride in Indian craves to get a saree or lehenga that has cutdana sequins done all over the body. Some brides separately purchase dupatta that has cutdana sequins sewed on them. These sequins are sewn into the fabric using thin threads to create different designs.


Mirror sequins

Mirror sequins were originated in Persia, but we Indians are so much in love with it that we use it on almost every weddings saree and lehenga. Mirror sequins come in different shape and sizes, and to sew them on the fabric the designers interlace threads, followed by button stitching them.
