An Assamese bride looks divine in mekhala chador! It’s a garment that is essential to an Assamese wedding and is so hatke. We love these Assamese brides’ take on the traditional mekhala chador and how they’ve made it their own. Take a look!
1. Red is the best!
Is there any other colour that is more associated with weddings than red? We love the completely traditional look of this bride - from the mekhala to the makeup. Bodiya!Source: Srinayana on Instagram
2. Demure and divine
The cream mekhala and red chador make an arresting colour combo.

4. Doin’ it right
When you want to go super traditional but not let the heavy mekhala chador overwhelm your look, this is how you do it. We love the pretty pink details and the jewellery - maangtikka, bangles, necklace - that are just perfect with each other.Source: Darshana_gohain on Instagram
