10 phoolon ki chaadar clicks which are so noteworthy, you just cannot miss them!

 

There is something about bridal entries, which is always exciting and enigmatic! Although brides raising the bar rather high with their offbeat and experimental wedding entry ideas, the phoolon ki chaadar always remains my personal favourite!!

 

Whether it is a simplistic chaadar, or an extravagant one covered with different-hued flowers, phoolon ki chaadars have a mysterious charm and the moment when the bride enters under it is definitely worth capturing.

 

Here’s me listing the best phoolon ki chaadar clicks which I have come across:

10 offbeat mangalsutra designs for the new-age bride!

Managalsutra or auspicious thread is a symbol of marital status for Hindu brides. Usually a mangalsutra is made up by stringing nine black beads and nine gold beads. It is an ornament which the groom puts around the bride’s neck during the wedding ceremony. New-age brides aren’t looking at a mangalsutra only as an auspicious ornament anymore, it much more! It has become a statement jewellery and something that can be flaunted, on the D-day and thereafter!

 

Mangalsutras are getting styled and customized like never before. From sophisticated designs including diamonds to dramatic, oversized traditional ones, a bride has a wide array of designs to choose from. While I was browsing through the internet, I noticed that there are oodles of mangalsutra varieties, in different sizes, lengths and styles.

 

Here’s me listing the most unconventional mangalsutra designs I came across, for the quintessential new-age brides:

 

1. The mangalsutra with the paisley design!

This mangalsutra has a beautiful and dainty paisley embossed on an oversized gold square, with beads at the end. A great pick for a bride who wants a balance of ethnic and modern!!

 

2. Heart-shaped mangalsutra

3. Contemporary mangalsutra with diamonds
