Heavy border sarees look very regal and they are a bride’s best friend. They come in a variety of options like a heavy gold zari border that makes you soak in bling and gives you that oomph when you pair it up with antique gold jewelry.
The contrast borders are equally fabulous and they give you that pop of color that you are looking for. You can try out multiple blouse options with such sarees like a contrast color blouse, a gold blouse or even a two tone blouse that features both colors of the Kanjeevaram saree.
