The Traditional Bride
Team up your intricately done lehnga with beautiful Kundan or Polki jewellery.

A large accompanying nath or nose ring with shimmering bindis over the eyebrows completes the ethnic look. Don’t forget the maang tikka which is the most essential part of the bridal look.
The Modern Bride
The modern Indian bride is on the lookout for something new and wants to look different. If you’re one of those, go for colours other than maroon in your outfit. Pinks, Oranges, Greens, Lavenders are some of the colours worth a try. You can also try out variations with your hair, flip them to the front in a decorated braid or tie a hie bun with intricate swirls. The kind of headpieces that you wear also make a huge difference to your overall look. Experiment with your dupatta, taking your dupatta like a veil resting way back on your bun making you a chick yet beautiful Indian bride.
