Your family’s wedding function is round the corner. Haven’t you selected the jewellery to wear yet? Or still confused what to buy? Let’s make your task easier for you.
You will need different jewellery for different functions like Mehendi, Godh Tika, Sangeet, Wedding and finally reception.
Most of all, the kind of jewellery you choose to style majorly depends on the dress you have selected for various functions related to wedding.
Here are the styling dos and don’ts you should bring in your consideration!
Merry while mehendi on hands! Mehendi night is one of the most prominent wedding functions. Be watchful for you may end up ruining your mehendi dancing around. Hence, it is better to go minimal during this function. We suggest, wearing a maangtika sets you apart from the rest when it comes to styling yourself in jewellery.
While you choose to wear maangtikas, the pair of earrings and anklets would just add to the glam.
If you are really keen on wearing a necklace, we suggest to go for antique one.
Whatever outfit you choose, the styling for Mehendi will go for all types of outfits!
Godh Tika is a function where we see two cultures meeting together for the first time. Hence being culturally dressed is the best way to show love and respect for the event.
Since you are an invitee, you need not to go overboard. Allowing a piece of tradition to become the highlight would garner you the attention and admiration from the groom and bride parties, both. Or let that piece of jewellery be the Rajwada style maangtika for the pre-wedding function glory. It is a true attention grabber!
Whether you are wearing saree lehenga or saree or an indo western gown or even anarkali, these piece of traditional polka or kundan earrings will match upto your style at all levels.
Or go for jewellery having red or green coloured stones embedded in it.
Do not forget to wear bangles or bracelet.
In most cases, women love to flaunt a full necklace set, in that case we suggest you to opt for a trendy designs than going for a mundane one. Thewa necklaces would be the best, since it won’t look heavy on neck yet trendy and traditional to go with your chosen earrings and bracelet. Polki and Kundan Stones are very much in!
THE WEDDING NIGHT
Since the showstopper of the night is anyways going to be the bride, which doesn’t mean that you should settle for any less! *wink*
Paasa is so much in the trend! Wearing it will make you stand amongst the best of most stylishly dressed!
As for jewellery colour, anything with red/maroon, green and white go really well with any wedding outfit unless until you are opting for off the trend colours like blue, orange or peach. However, you may get the jewellery in any choice of coloured stones. Just keep a keen eye for it.
How about stunning everyone with your coin necklace? Coin necklace has been a part of South Indian culture, where bride is supposed to wear it. However, donning the golden coins with deities inscribed is gradually becoming a good trend among fashionistas! Would you like to be ahead in this trend?
Pair it up with antique bracelet.
How about wearing coin rings too?
If you are wearing a heavyily jewelled saree, then adorn it only with a pair of crystal or diamond earrings. If diamonds is out of budget then you can opt for the earrings studded with American diamonds. They look as sparkling as the real diamonds.
Aha! This is the moment when you can go absolute indo western like wearing a gown or achkan worn with sharara. Wear some funky accessory with the outfit. Add a pop of colours in your dressing style.
