When Geet from Jab We Met said, “Bachpan se hi na… mujhe shaadi karne ka bahut craze hai, by God”, we all agreed.
When the special day is here you should want nothing below the finest. We absolutely swoon the beautiful OTT bridal jewelry sets. Layering the bridal lehenga with chokers, maang tikkas, stack of bangles and so much more but rarely do we pay attention to the significance of each piece of jewelry adorned by the bride.
Introducing the beautiful tales of long lost traditions of the gorgeous jewelry the bride adorns on her special day so you don’t miss out on the important pieces of jewelry.
1. Mangalsutra- The mangalsutra is a symbol of marriage worn by the wife. It indicates love and commitment the couple has for one another. It is known to ward off evil to protect the married couple.
2. Chooda/ Bangles- The bangles are an inseparable part of the Indian wedding culture, Bangles are traditionally an integral part of the solah shringar of the Indian bride. It is essential for newly wed brides and would-be-brides to wear bangles made of glass, gold or other metals as they signify good fortune and prosperity.
3. Kalire- The Kalire signify happiness and never ending love between the couple and serves as a reminder of the family’s love she is leaving behind. With this, comes a beautiful tradition of the Kalira ceremony. The bride showers the kalira over her unmarried bridesmaids, and if the kalira falls on any of them they are in line to get married next. Isn't it fun?
4. Maatha patti- The matha patti gives the bride will, power and wisdom to handle her new journey in life. It protects her from evil eyes and negative energies. It is a symbol of the union between the bride and the groom. You can go with the OTT matha patti to make a bold statement or the simple maang tikka for the minimal look, because less is better.
5. Nath- The Nath enhances the elegance and beauty of the bride. It is an essential part of the Shringaar and has a special place in the bridal trousseau.
