Christian Bridal Sarees: 11 Best Of The Best In 2016

Christian bridal sarees are a result of Syrian Christian wedding traditions having evolved over time, having blended in with the local customs, and taking inspiration from certain local rituals that were already prevalent. The Syrian Christian brides with strong local influences preferred wearing a bridal saree in white instead of the traditionally western wedding gown. This practice gained popularity among other Christian denominations such as the Latin Catholics and Anglicans who also followed suit, mostly due to the convenience associated with a wearing a saree – its easy availability versus a white gown. Imagine searching for a gown maker in India centuries ago or even wearing a long velvet gown in a South Indian summer and you’ll easily understand how the saree became a popular option for brides-to-be.

India is a melting pot of many religions, cultures, traditions and ethnicities. In India, every religion over the ages has evolved to become a fine blend of prescribed customs and practices that are inspired by local beliefs. Syrian Christians, for example, introduced Christianity to India as far back as 52 AD, and Christianity was well entrenched as a respected, accepted and widely followed religion with Christians becoming an integral part of India long before Vasco Da Gama’s arrival.
