Gone are the days when all brides wore plain golden kaleeras. Brides these days are going for all sorts of varieties and unique designs when it comes to these pretty adornments. They are going for tasseled kaleeras, ones with pom-poms and even floral kaleeras.
The Punjabi ritual that denotes good luck and blessings to the bride-to-be, has beautifully evolved into a trend of its own. Although they are a part of the Punjabi bride’s trousseau, women from all cultures are now opting to accessorize their bridal look with these gorgeous trinkets that are mostly worn along with a chooda. If you too are a soon-to-be bride and want to give a heady uplift to your traditional kaleera designs, then you must check them out on these 15 brides for some solid inspiration.
