We are all set to woo your hearts with a line-up of some utterly gorgeous heavy kaleeras! The rustling accessories aka kaleeras make for an imperative part of a bride’s overall wedding look in North India.

Being the bride, you better give heads up to your clan and tell them the kind of kaleeras you want for the wedding.
