Oh! Did we just contradict ourselves by asking you to wear a Kanjvaram saree? No, we did not, as we recommend you to wear this never out of fashion saree with a lacy golden blouse. The golden colour makes you a little flashy while the lace balances the flash with its elegance. Wear a beautiful Kundan set with it and you are all ready to mark your presence as the Mother of the bride.

No matter what your age is, a Patiala suit is something that compliments you always. Wear a heavy Patiala suit that has Gota Patti work as the Mother of the bride.
