From South Indian brides beautifully decked up in Kanjeevaram to larger than life decor whilst being minimal and intimate, their each and every element make you fall in love! The sheer elegance and charm of a bride in sarees in unmatched. Not only Bridal sarees are extremely comfortable but, with modern brides not shying away from experimenting, they're also easy when you wish to create an unconventional look. We spotted bunch of  brides who totally nailed the south Indian look be it because of traditional south Indian bridal makeup, hairstyle or the bridal jewelry! Scroll down and have a look. You're bound to get mesmerised.

The Brides Who Added Magic Of Minimalism

We have seen a lot of millennial brides going the minimal way! Their bridal looks are all about about dainty South Indian bridal jewellery, light makeup and a simple yet elegant Kanjeevaram saree with a South Indian bridal Hairstyle. She’s taken a few pastel colours and transformed into one saree which makes it a perfect south Indian wedding look for a day wedding. While such looks are more suitable for a day wedding, but after looking at these photos we cannot deny that our brides know how to bring out their best at anytime of the day! See and decide for yourself.

To keep her look minimal, this south indian bride chose a pastel hued saree and paired it with sleek diamond south indian bridal jewellery! While these are two different shades all together to be matched, they contrast super well and our bride turns out to be a traditional south Indian bride. Stunning, to say the least. Also, can't help but praise her heavily kohled eyes with clear gloss on the lips.

Kudos to this bride for keeping her look minimal, despite of sporting a vivid hued south indian bridal saree! This bride is giving out major traditional goals wearing the colour red with gajra bangles and of course a saree. She managed to balance it by keeping her jewellery light with a no makeup look, ditching the traditional south Indian bridal makeup and hairstyle. A simple south Indian look indeed.

This south indian bride skipped the extra by giving her traditional bridal jewellery for the hair a miss! Easy peasy hairdo and a pop of red on the lips to match with her attire was her drill to keep her look minimal. Look at that south indian bridal make up. Amazing, right?

While a white south Indian bridal saree in itself is sufficient to keep your bridal look simple, but to ensure it stays that way, bride avoided experimenting with her make up. Simplicity at its best, this bride chose the perfect combination of off white and pink looking absolutely beautiful. And instead of going for a darker shade, she styled her white Kanjeevaram with a bubblegum pink blouse (psstt.. . with no embroidery)!

The Brides Who Kept Their Hair Game Strong

The Brides Who Kept Their Makeup Subtle

We love when brides play it light with their makeup. Like, who thought brides would move past the heavy Traditional south Indian bridal makeup one day and look their natural, stunning self on their big day. This trend became a rage in north India and now, this storm has also hit the south Indian brides.
