Bengali bride's first choice is mostly Banarasi saree of red colour for the wedding day.

For the unversed, Anushka Sharma had sported a stunning Banarasi saree for her Delhi reception. The saree was designed by Sabyasachi and it looked marvellous. Earlier, Banarasi was made strictly maintaining the typical patterns, but now Zardosi work is also added on it to enhance its beauty. Are you looking to buy this type of saree for your wedding? Then read on to know what you should keep in mind before the purchase.

1. There are many variations in banarasi saree depending on its style and design. Some of them are Katan banarasi, Shattir banarasi, Kora banarasi, georgette banarasi, jangla banarasi, tanchoi banarasi, cutwork banarasi, butidar banarasi etc. So, first, do some research on which you like the most and which will suit you well.

3. Don’t forget to consider your body type. Because the saree exhibits your body type and complement your key features.
