Women have worn brooches and pins with wedding sarees for a long time, but their use has always been limited to an ornamental role. A small pin above the left shoulder seems to be the best way that brooches and pins are to be worn. The ’60s and ’70s saw brooches worn at the waist to hold the pallu in place. Over the past couple of years, however, sarees and brooches have become almost inseparable. It has become extremely trendy to find different uses for brooches and pins. Brooches are no longer just ornaments to decorate the saree, but have become instrumental in pinning them in place, adding colour and even helping to achieve a slimmer look. Here are a few places to strategically pin a brooch and the types of brooches and pins that will suit each place.
Before you go on, however, there are Five Golden Rules you must know when it comes to wearing brooches.
- Sari Wedding Brooches Rule No. 1: Never wear more than one brooch at a time.
- Sari Wedding Brooches Rule No. 2: Always match the style of your brooch to your sari.
- Sari Wedding Brooches Rule No. 3: Never wear a brooch with a heavily decorated saree.
- Sari Wedding Brooches Rule No. 4: Rule No. 3 doesn’t apply if the brooch is on the saree.
- Sari Wedding Brooches Rule No. 5: Never wear a gold brooch with embroidered silver or a silver brooch with gold saris.
Now that you know the Five Golden Rules, you’re ready to continue.
