Most Indian weddings are as dreamy as a Bollywood movie- a beautiful amalgamation of entertainment, emotions, colours, sparkle and trends. Each and every detail of the wedding is carefully planned over months and the bride's OOTD sits right at the top of that list. 'Cuz let's admit it, she is the centre of attention.
From her lehenga, the makeup, hair and jewellery, every bride wants to be the best version of herself on this special day. And the most expensive decision out of all of the above is the bridal jewellery. No Indian wedding is complete without exhibiting the best of jewels. And if you are going to spend such big bucks, might as well be aware of the latest trends, right?
From heavy chokers to naths, everything's making a comeback and both traditional and contemporary brides will love it.
While minimalism is a rage, brides seem to be in no mood to dial down the extravagant vibe of their neckpieces. After Sabyasachi introduced statement chokers, there's no doubt that this will be the biggest bridal jewellery trend for 2019-20 brides.
Too flashy? Don't care. Oversized rings add drama to your look while keeping the traditional vibe intact. They also help draw attention to your beautiful mehendi adorned hands. In fact, after Deepika Padukone wore rings in all her fingers, that's become a huge trend too!
Taking lessons from the South Indian brides, are we? South Indian brides love temple jewellery. The elaborate and unique motifs featuring gods and goddesses make it one of the most popular trends for brides across India. Made in gold and chunky red and green precious stones, temple jewellery is also considered to be an auspicious form of jewellery. If you're planning to go for temple jewellery on your D-day, pair it with a Kanjeevaram sari to complete your royal look.
Most brides are choosing shoulder dust earrings because of their contemporary design. They also flatter your long neck and look stunning with off-shoulder blouses and gowns. For the new-age bride, shoulder dust earrings are the alternative to chaadbaalis and jhumkas this year.
If you're not wearing a chooda on your wedding day, we say you try out a handcuff with your bridal lehenga. For a contemporary look, swap the gold bangles with a statement handcuff. It could be a plain gold-finish piece or one with pretty jewels to match your lehenga. If not the wedding day, you can always adorn a handcuff on your cocktail night.
Nose ring, one of the oldest jewellery trends in India, was at the verge of fading before Sonam Kapoor Ahuja walked the Cannes red carpet sporting an oversized nath with a saree. The trend further became popular after Anushka and Deepika wore oversized nose rings on their wedding day. Undoubtedly then, it's going to be a rage this year and the next.
