Indian weddings are all about that jazz and 2018 set the wedding must-do trends for 2019 so you can plan the beginning of your happy-ever-after.
Maharashtrian Bridal Wear Trends
When it comes to weddings, Maharashtrian brides do prefer traditional over trendy. The colour palette that is in season is pastel shades, including floral designs, embroidered lehengas and sarees.
The Maharashtrian brides always favour the traditional look of brightly-coloured silk saree with elaborate gold borders of the Paithani style or Kolhapuri style. The preferred colours are the age-old marigold-yellow, green, purple with gold borders.
Alternatively, other options like the Uppada Silk and Kanchi from the southern states, Kota silk from Rajasthan and Banarasi silk.
Wedding jewellery for your big day
Flower jewellery is in trend nowadays for the unique and natural look they provide. Brides nowadays wear intricate yet simple floral jewellery for Haldi and Sangeet functions.
Both Marathi brides and grooms wear the traditional mundavalyas which is a strand of pearls tied on the forehead with two strands of pearls falling on either side of the face.
Like the mundavalyas, the nath is also a traditional Marathi bridal jewellery that you can’t do without. The nath is a type of a nose ring which has fancy pearls and jewels stringed together in an intricate design.
The Marathi choora is also very distinguished from the red choora worn by brides from the northern states. The Maharashtrian choora is a set of dark green glass bangles set contrastingly against the bright three to four gold bangles. A few green bangles are separated by a thick gold bangle. Green is a sign of fertility and therefore you can see a lot of green hues in Marathi bridal look.
The Marathi bridal makeup
To finish off the Marathi makeup for the bride you need to emphasize her natural beauty with a look that includes soft pink hydrated lips (or with shades of red to coral). A natural blush highlighting the apple of her cheeks and a crescent-shaped red bindi is required to complete the traditional yet timeless Marathi bride look.
The Marathi Bridal hairstyle
You don’t need complicated twirls to make a hairstyle look good. A simple bun can be made eye-catching by adding Mundavayla or by simple hair accessories or flowers. There is also the option of simple hair braids.
