Accessory Dos for the Bride-to-be

Try heirloom jewellery

Heirloom jewellery is making the most noise these days. A lot of brides are pairing gorgeous heirloom jewels with their bridal lehengas. And so can you! Just give your mommies' and grannies' royal chests a thorough check before heading for jewellery shopping. You never know which antique piece might just go with your bridal lehenga. You can even get a few changes done in your heirloom pieces to turn it into a brand new one!

Wear hair accessories

Just how you can't miss pairing your lehenga with suitable bridal jewels, you can't miss adorning your bridal hairstyle with some elegant hair accessories either. It's a must. Even if it's an accessory as small as a beaded hairpin, it can add gobs of charm to your bridal hair.

Pick your accessories first

Confused about whether to buy your jewellery or your lehenga first? Well, first things first, buy your accessories before splurging on your lehenga. One, it’s a huge investment. Two, you will not have to worry about your blouse neckline going wrong.

Wear a lot of hand accessories

As a bride, you just can't skip on those traditional hand accessories. Especially when it's the only time you have the liberty to wear as many as you can without looking out of place. So, get it all, right from contemporary haath phools, edgy bangles to statement rings and adorn your beautiful hands with it.

Accessory Don'ts for the Bride-to-be

Don't overdo

When you are the bride, there is no such thing as too many accessories. You can very well opt to go the OTT way with your bridal accessories when you know you can carry them well. However, in case you're not sure if you'll be able to pull off say a maang tikka and a passa altogether or them gaudy layered necklaces, it's always safe to go light on the jewellery.

Don't carry clutches

Why do you even feel the need to carry one when your darling BFF is there to take care of all your necessary stuff? There's hardly any bride who prefers carrying her clutch to the stage or during the pheras. However, if you still wish to carry one, pick a lightweight one, like a potli bag that doesn't weigh you down. 

Don't just mindlessly go by the trends

rrespective of what is trending-whether it's those fancy choker necklaces or the tasselled accessories, don't invest on it if you know you won't feel comfortable wearing them. After all, it's your big day and you sure don't want to end up feeling all uneasy & fidgety throughout your wedding day rituals.

Don't wear a watch

With your hands all covered with your bridal chooda and other traditional bangles, there'll be little or no space for you to adjust your watch in between. But even if you still manage to wear it somehow, there are great chances of you damaging your delicate beauty with those heavy bangles & their pointed embellishments (You obviously don't want that right?). However, if you're a person who can't do without watches, wear it on your reception/cocktail party.
