This is the saree I wore to a friend’s Guyanese wedding this summer. Totally overwhelmed by all the choices of beautiful sarees available, I had a family friend who is originally from India help me find this one. It was custom tailored for me so instead of one long piece of fabric, it had a gathered skirt and a loop to hold one end over my shoulder. This helped us first-time saree wearers have a hope of walking and dancing in all that fabric!
Seeing our sorority sisters in shades of green, blue, pink and purple sarees was a colorfully fun experience. I’m so grateful that the bride encouraged her friends try on a piece of her culture to help celebrate the wedding! What have you worn to a wedding that was a new experience for you?
