This is one of my favorite sarees. However, there is a very interesting story behind how this saree made its place in my wedding trousseau. Traditionally, blacks are a no no in wedding trousseau. I spotted this saree while shopping for my engagement saree along with hubby (then fiance), mom and mom in law. It was love at first sight for me, mainly due to the lovely black embroidery and sequin work. I knew mom in law would reject it as black. However, my mom read my face and quietly signalled the salesman to pack and bill it separately. While hubby later told me I could have asked him to get it for me, this saree ensured mom in law never stopped me from buying or wearing black again!
