Anupriya Khanna, 17 May 2019

Brides opting for new-age chooda designs in offbeat hues like fuschia, peach & white is no longer an alien concept. The voguish trend has been around for quite some time and a lot of brides seem to have approved of it with their peculiar choices. However, just when we thought there wasn't anything more to it, we bumped into these beautiful brides who completely ditched the age-old accessory and opted for stylish chunky bangles.

Wearing bangles & kada sets over the quintessential choodas is a trend that's currently taking over the bridal fashion scenes and how beautifully!

So if you're yet to get all done & dusted with your jewellery shopping & are all tempted to try out this trend, we've got some inspiration for you.

Down here we unleash how some of our favorite brides ditched the choodas and perked up their hands with a glimmering set of bangles. Scroll through and make the most of it!
