Tamil weddings (Hindu ones, at least), embrace the use of gold, red hues and pay attention to all the small details. Every minute thing included in it has its origin and importance dating back centuries. One such tradition that has been passed for generations is the koorai pattu for brides. The color of the koorai pattu differs for each family, with the most used color being red. It symbolizes the beginning of life for the bride. Over the years a lot of things have found its way in and out of this tradition. Every generation has its own trendy things that they would have tried for their wedding day.
The newest to this trend being designer wear to match the koorai saree. Most of the koorai sarees were worn with plain contrasting blouses, but now that aari and zardosi works have been introduced to make them more attractive and special, a whole new concept of the "bridal blouse" has emerged.
You might think why such a fuss about a blouse? Of course! Many women have been dreaming about this day since their childhood, shaping every little thing for their special day needs to be perfect. This bridal blouse concept has not only created a buzz in South Asia, but also in the Tamil community across the globe. The hand embroidery, along with stone and zardozi, adds the silver lining. From matching the blouse design and pattern to adding little details to make it more personal by adding initials to the latkans.
