Indian weddings are best known for their gorgeously dressed brides. The fact is, some brides want to keep it to the minimal. We instead, insist you on choosing all your ‘solah shringar’ because it is your wedding, and you have to be as royal as possible.
So while you’re busy shopping till you drop, we’ve made a list of wedding jewelry you simply cannot afford to miss – however simple you prefer to be:
1.Maang tikkas: If you’ve to look like a queen, start from the crowning glory itself. Maang tikkas are very much the trending favourite of brides and bridesmaids this season. From Padmavati’s exquisite maatha patti to a simple maang tikka in Alia Bhatt’s bridal look in 2 states, choose a headband that suits your face shape and size.
Wear a golden tiara or a bejeweled thick maatha patti, but absolutely do not forget to style your hair in a way that the jewel on top fits perfect.
2. Nosepieces: Many brides prefer small neck pieces or false nose rings for their big day. We say whatever it is, do not miss the neck piece. Wear the big sized Mughal style or a tiny nose piece but keep it on your list. Nose pieces are one such ornament that mix tradition with the latest fashion statement so combine both for a drop-dead combo.
3. Finger rings: We’ve included finger rings because some brides prefer flaunting a one-piece wedding ring or an entire five-piece ring bracelet. Our dearest brides-to-be, we advise you to make the most of your fingers. Enhance the shape of your fingers by wearing huge rings – from colourfully stone studded to pure golds. Just make sure your mehndi isn’t the only thing drawing attention to your hands.
4. Waistbands: ‘Kamar bands’ or waistbands almost vanished but they’ve once again entered the Indian fashion scene as more and more brides want to deck themselves up for the big day carrying all they can. You can choose from broad to slimmer waistbands, depending on your body structure. It not only covers the bare torso area but adds grace to the bride’s overall appearance.
5. Dainty toe rings: When you walk down that flower-path with the man of your dreams – make sure you’re a head-turner. Colorful toe rings will grab people’s instant attention and keep them staring at the beautiful henna on your feet which generally get ignored.
6. Anklets: Payal or anklets are another traditional piece of jewelry which have returned to fashion thanks to the variety of designs available in markets. Make sure your ghungroo keeps your groom waiting for you eagerly as you approach the mandap to take the precious oaths of a lifetime!
