There are few other cultures in the world wherein it is customary for the bride to dress as lavishly and flamboyantly as it is in Indian culture.
From her clothes and make up, to her jewelry and shoes, every Indian bride looks no less than a princess on her wedding day. And talking of Indian bridal jewelry, well, who can dispute the tradition of wearing beautiful Indian bridal jewelry with a lavish wedding lehenga or saree. Over the years, the trends in Indian bridal jewelry have also seen more room for variation and while the usual OTT gold or diamond bridal ensemble is beyond ever going obsolete, definitely a number of other styling variations have evolved to suit every pocket and taste.
Bridal fashion has also changed and from the usual saree-lehenga duo, the bride has more options to pick from for her wedding and other important pre and post wedding events. As you would expect bridal jewelry designs have also for their part kept pace with the Saree gowns and Shararas while still flattering Kanjivarams and Banarasi sarees.
However, as the wedding day draws closer, the pressure to find the perfect dress with the perfect jewelry begins mounting and it can be quite overwhelming to pick the right jewelry which is both trendy as well as complimentary to the outfit.
