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!

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
5. Nothing but the look
We admit, we love this pic mostly because of the jewellery. While the bride keeps to traditional gold jewellery otherwise, the maangtikka is simplicity itself, letting her beauty shine through. Source: Tanjiltamuli on Instagram
