Assume you head over to your relative wedding and spot pattu sarees on pleasing shades. You begin to wonder where these women get such wonderful selections. Out of curiosity you even inquire on the shop details.
And then you forget conveniently!
Next time, when you walk into a shop for your next silk saree purchase, you are in the same old dilemma of which one to choose among the hundreds of sarees when they all look equally good.
You have no hint which color you want. You even try to remember the saree which you felt crazy on that wedding party. To your dismay, nothing comes to your mind to ease out the decision making.
That’s when you fell to the trap and settle with the hue that you are comfortable to wear. In other words, without exploring, you once again end up shelling your bucks on saree color which you might already have in your closet.
And the next time when you attend a bridal event, the same cycle continues.
How many times do you regret your choice of pattu saree colors -considering it is rather expensive- that you should have picked something new instead of trying the same shade again and again?
Don’t worry, to help you with the right color choice, we dug deep to a wedding portal and unearthed the primary color choices that are being fancied by South Indian brides right now.
If brides badly want this, then you should know it is of something. So nothing wrong in checking out why they feel so.
Ahead, you can see 30 unique pattu saree color combinations that will solve your dilemmas when you shop next time. Scroll down and take a look.
Remember, the world of pattu saree doesn’t exist if you don’t give in to this classic shade. The vibrant red with an embellished blouse wins attention without you having to do much on other aspects like makeup and stuff.
One thing though, choose the right red that flatters you. Wrong shade will completely wash you out.
Sea Blue, Fuchsia & Yellow
Sometimes too much of zari tend to bore you down. We can completely empathize with you, even we do feel the same. That’s why keeping zari off, you need to focus on other vibrant colors that can stand out without any glittery work by its side.
A good choice would be to pick rare shades like sea blue attenuated with fuchsia pink and mustard yellow like below. Then pick a heavy embroidered blouse, without zari details if possible, to balance the saree.
Peach and Parrot Green
If you are safely treading on maroon and deep greens, time to bring a spin to your closet by opting for pattu saree shades that are totally unique and colorful.
Do you mind trying out a peach with parrot green border? It might not be so exciting when you spot them on a shop, but in reality it is a killer duo that you can’t escape but lusting over on the first sight!
Classic Green & Purple
If you take pattu sarees, there are few classic colors that are going to stay FOREVER. If you ask, the list will have deep green in the first five places. That doesn’t mean you can’t add a new dimension to this evergreen shade.
Next time when you can’t escape the beauty of a lush green, pair them with purple blouse. Oh…yea, you will surely be admired for your choice of blouse!
All Gold with Hint of Maroon
The glittery gold sarees infused with zari border still remains the hot pick among brides. What creative details you can add to make them even more enticing?
Include shades of maroon in the form of blouse, stone work or even via your jewellery. Implement this trick and see how your gold pattu saree is totally mesmerizing.
Mustard Yellow & Muted Red/Pink
Another vintage shade, next to red and green, is obviously yellow. That being said, yellow is not for everyone. Especially if you are conscious of your skin tone, it might be little intimidating to try out this color.
But you don’t have to miss out this beautiful color any more. Try mustard yellow instead of more daring tone, and pair them with muted red/pink to further mellow down the look.
Royal Blue & Red
This combo needs no introduction. Remember the wedding party where you will fell for some saree on the first sight itself and keep inquiring about it. This duo has the tendency to make you feel that way.
Still many miss to pick this color mix on their shopping. Do us a favor; please include this one on your shopping agenda ASAP.
Black & Pink
It’s hard for many that the sassy black is often left out in the pattu saree radar owing to the auspicious factor and all. But seriously this color is so hard to ignore due to silly beliefs.
Anyway, if you don’t heed to such reasoning, do pick a black with pink blouse. Wear it with matt finish bold gold or silver jewellery. Lady, you will be the showstopper or sure!
Pink & Green
Sometimes, you don’t even need to buy a new saree shade to prove the point that you are in the experiment mode. All you need is, grab the classic colors out from your closet, and try them with contrasting blouse choices.
Do you like to give a try? Then take that pink pattu saree out and wear it with a parrot green blouse.
Blue on Violet
Some women just love blue. In fact, all shades of blue. They can’t stop bringing some form of blue to their outfit. Ask them why? Why blue all the time? They say in one word, ‘Refreshing’.
Blue tones are as spellbinding as any other vibrant saree color. But many tend to pick up wrong blunt monochrome blue and look totally void. Don’t do that. Try mixing blue with violet and opt for silver zari work instead of gold. See the magic by yourself.
Simple Pink with Gold
Like to play safe and want to keep a distance away from all the daring loud colors. It’s perfectly fine. We understand your down-to-earth nature. Pick a muted pink and wear it with gold blouse. Opt for a hair bun and antique jewelleries to rock this style.
Red and Green

This is the most trending bridal color of this season. So if you are the bride, you know what you should keep an eye on.
Pink And Blue
Your pre-wedding ceremonies need new colors that are quite lively to keep the momentum going. Stay away from yellow, red, green and opt for other less explored hues to make a difference.
