It’s been a trying time for everyone. With work-from-home becoming the norm, everything else has taken a backseat. And weddings have been no exception to the long list of things that have been forced to be rescheduled. Those ‘Save-the-date’ cards would have to wait a little longer before they can be sent out. But if there’s a wedding you’ve been looking forward to, then don’t let the gloom dampen your spirits. Make use of this time to carefully plan everything for the big day. Whether you’re a bride who is planning her bachelorette or a best friend who’s searching for the perfect present, it’s time to get your creative hats on and think out of the box.
But before you go around saving all that you see on Pinterest, let’s give you a headstart with our suggestions and we promise you won’t be disappointed.
Gifts for brides
Don’t roll your eyes at sarees and say, ‘Nooooo!’. Sarees are a classy gift and we tell you how. Slow fashion has become the need of the hour, especially with the current situation. Natural fibres are finally in the spotlight and there’s no better time than now to make that switch to sustainable clothing.
Have you heard of sarees made from Banana fibre or Bamboo fibre or better still, Pineapple fibre? You read that right – sarees made from natural fibres which are cruelty-free and animal-friendly. Not just this, nowadays there are also Ahimsa silk sarees which are pure silk sarees made using non-violent methods. Handwoven with utmost care, these sarees come with traditional and contemporary designs, in vibrant colours.
Choose from our collection of ahimsa silk, cotton, linen and natural fibre sarees on www.thephoenixcompany.in/collections/sarees From Ajrakh to Jamdani, variety is what best describes our collection. The beautiful craftsmanship combined with impeccable handiwork in these sarees is sure to attract second glances where ever you go. Whether you choose a mango-yellow ahimsa silk saree or a deep pink pineapple fibre saree, you’ll be making this a wedding to remember with a style statement that has mindful fashion at its core.
If the bride isn’t a sucker for sarees, then we move on to the next best gift – dresses. Dresses have become a kind of staple in every wardrobe. It is unarguably one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own: long or short, full-sleeved or sleeveless, open-backed or fully closed, vibrant and heavy or light and fluttery. Coupled with a smart pair of white sneakers, they’re bound to add to the perfect honeymoon wardrobe!
On that note, check out our latest collection of Ikat, Ajrakh and Kalamkari dresses, that are chic and smart. They are breezy and light, in bright and pastel shades. Visit www.thephoenixcompany.in/collections/dresses and shop for the dresses.
