Let’s usher in the New Year by talking about the ever unfolding topic of weddings, in association with Truly Bridal by Kalyan. I have seen numerous brides, who have bought their wedding lehenga/ensemble without thinking about the jewellery they’re going to pair it with. From colour and cut to design, each of your jewellery pieces should shine bright on your wedding functions.
I find Delhi-based stylist, Akshita Phoolka agreeing with me in this video.
Here a few points to remember.
1. If you prefer wearing a low cut blouse styles like scoop, halter or sweetheart neckline, chances are your jewellery will be in the spotlight. This is a good choice for those of you who love sporting your family’s lineage with chokar that sticks close to our neck. A Rani haar or a Chandra haar can also look regal. Remember, you should choose universal colours like nude, green or maroon. It’d be ideal if you first buy your trinkets and then proceed towards your wedding ensemble.
2. High necklines and collared blouses are not just a trend, but a non-negotiable statement for many of us. They look great with both sarees and lehengas. In this case, you can either go with antique gold jewellery (ladis) or thin strings of vintage gold or try a Satlaara Haar which is basically seven thin strings of kundan, pearls and gold. Remember, you can pair a small chokar with these. Make your own style statement as per your tastes, and you’ll look wonderful!
3. Lastly, for a simple U-shaped blouse that matches your lehenga, you can also opt for a pendant drop necklace. Now-a-days, most brides choose polka and gold for pendant drop necklaces but you can experiment and choose gemstone jewellery—rubies and emeralds look great too.
4. Remember to complement the rest of your jewellery pieces depending upon your neckpiece. For instance, if you’re wearing a satlaara haar, keep it simple on your ears and hands with small sized jhumkas and bangles.
If you wish to go the minimal way with a chokar, then pair it up with large earrings or moon baalis, haath phool and a stunning nath.
Hope you have a great time picking our necklines and necklaces. Feel free to ask us any more questions in the comments’ section! Also, do leave a comment below and share the awesome videos on Truly Bridal by Kalyan channel.
