Traditional Sarees for Karwa Chauth

A traditional festival for married Indian women, Karwa Chauth is observed in order to ensure and attain marital bliss. Karwa means an earthen pot which is symbolic of good fortune and Chauth means ‘the fourth day’ as it is observed on the fourth day after Full Moon Day in the Hindu month of Karthik. Even though it is a Hindu festival, it is primarily observed by married women in northern and western part of India. At the same time, unmarried women also observe this fast for their beloved or fianc├ęs or in order to get a good husband. However, married women belonging to eastern and southern part of India do not observe Karwaa Chauth since it’s not a part of their custom and practices.

The prime highlight of Karwaa Chauth is its rather rigorous fast kept by all married women throughout the day which denies the intake of even a single drop of water. Married women keep this fast in order to wish and pray for her husband’s well-being, prosperity and long life. The main ritual of Karwa Chauth is the breaking of this fast in the evening after women look at the moon and their husbands through a sieve. Since Karwa Chauth is all about ensuring marital happiness, Bridal Fashion is the key theme during Karwaa Chautth. Married women opt for extremely gorgeous traditional Sarees or Bridal Sarees in rich shades of red or maroon. These are further accessorized by gorgeous and ornate Bridal Jewelry in order to impart a beautiful bridal look that is necessary for Karwa Chauth. When a newlywed woman observes her first Karwa Chautth, she is usually decked in her Bridal Saree, Bridal Salwar Kameez or Bridal Lehenga Choli along with her Bridal Jewelry. The evening ceremony during Karwa Chauth with women adorned in gorgeous Karwa Chautth Clothes performing rituals is indeed a beautiful sight!
