Hailed as one of the most essential and beloved accessories in Indian weddings, Jaimalas (charmingly known as Varmalas) signify the commencement of a new chapter for the bride and the groom. Worn around the necks, these pretty adornments are no more those basic Indian wedding garlands. They have come a long way and are available in gobs of designs and patterns-right from bejeweled ones to the ones made up of fresh blooms or artificial flowers.
However, the ones that are making the most noise of late are the dainty and lightweight jaimala designs. Because, one, they don’t weigh you down when you’re already too decked up on your big day. Two, “less is more” is the new mantra that is ruling the Indian wedding scene.
