Wedding Times: The Silk Kanjivaram Saree - Kalyanam Saree

Kalyanam in tamil means marriage a holy bond. India has diversified cultures and so are the traditions. The Punjabi Bride wears a Suit, Rajasthani Bride wears a Lehenga and a U.P. Bride wears a Saree.

Tamil brides wear beautiful Silk and Kanjivaram Saree a traditional saree which is weaved by craftsmen 
of Kanchipuram and look extremely royal as they weaved along with gold zari thread and sometimes with real gold and silver thread. Therefore these sarees are very expensive, A single Kanchipuram sari can cost anywhere between INR 2,500 (US$38) to INR 10,0000 (US$1,500) or more depending upon the intricacy of work, colors, pattern, material used like zari, gold thread etc.

Kanchipuram saris woven with heavy silk and gold cloth are considered to be special and are worn on occasions and festivities only. Many people think that only south Indian brides wear it however even I have a few Kanjivaram sarees which I would love to wear on any festive occasion. North Indian women enjoy wearing these sarees as much as women from the southern India.

Palam Silks was the official sponser for the move Chennai Express. If you have seen the movie Deepika Padukone is wearing one of the most beautiful Kanchivaram Silk Sarees and Half and Half Sarees created by them.
