Saree certainly is a good investment for every other occasion though "I do" only for Indian weddings because it is quite troublesome when nature calls. Still, saree holds you in beauty and an affordable wisely selected gold thread saree is forever a fashion statement, unless you are trending behind Aiswarya Rai, Hansika Motwani and Nayanthara. Their sarees are sponsored whereas we have to cough out our own money.
Sarees by far are colourful. Bright colours suited for fair skin whereas mild colours will tone down dark skin. And by the 50s, you should know your colour or "color match" the saree with your skin to be on the save side before buying. Also, with fancy sarees, better to volume down on accessories, make-up and hair style (Sarees On Red Carpet) regardless whether you want to out shine the bride or not.
