Sri Lanka – Saree Fittings & Mahaweli Reach

This day was a free day and we very much enjoyed relaxing and it was also SAREE DAY!

I had been so excited for this day the moment I got my Saree at the start of the trip. My Saree was light and dark blue and made of the most beautiful silk. I had a nice blue crop top to put underneath my top half and a mesh skirt to wear underneath by skirt!

The ladies arrived and it was fitting time!

We were brought into one of the rooms in the hotel and with our saree’s in hand it was hair pin and safety pin time! They used so many safety and hair pins to keep my saree secured and in place and I felt so elegant and beautiful once I was all dressed!

Once everyone was in their saree’s it was time for our final dinner of the trip!

We headed down to Mahaweli Reach for dinner!

This hotel is a beautiful 4 star hotel who hosted us all. A buffet dinner with Sri Lankan cuisine as well as english cuisine on offer for the buffet. There was also a singer for some live music, we are served wine and juice and it was all laughs and bliss.

There was many photo opportunities between us girls and It really made me excited and realise that I had been the whole trip surrounded by some of the most beautiful people I have been so lucky to learn and grow with since starting university. I couldn’t be more grateful for a beautiful bunch of girls.

Enjoy some saree pictures from our last night!

Once the dinner was finished it was TO THE BAR.

Licence to Grill where we had visited beforehand had said the would host us for a party with alcohol even though it wasn’t allowed to stay open past a certain time nor serve alcohol! Every time the police came past the lights were turned off and the music was turned down it was great fun.

As we trekked to the top floor bar and restaurant we were ready to go and enjoyed some drinks and music on the rooftop on our last night. The right way to spend the last night.

Train Journeys Back to Colombo and unfortunate final goodbyes in the next blog post!

  3. I have worn a sari only once, and it was a red and white one. I do not know if I could tie it myself now, though.
    Such a beautiful shade of blue your sari is! I love the darker fringe and how well it looks with your hair.
