The ‘Traditional’ Bengali Bride
Anandita looking resplendent in her traditional Bengali attire. Red ofcoursis is considered sacred amongst Hindus and therefore a Bengali Bride attires her marriage dress in colors of red.
Everything, from the sari, jewelry, footwear to the make up – had to be perfect! Usually in traditional Bengali marriages, the ‘bou’ or the Bengali bride dresses up in a benarasi sari with a wide zari border.
After a long time it was great to attend a quintessentially Bong wedding where all the rituals / dresses (and importantly food!) was arranged in the traditional Bengali way ;)
