30+ Bridal Naths For Every Kind Of Bride
BY Soha Kala | 11 Jun, 2019
Let us tell you a fun fact!
Naths were an important part of a bride's look during our grandparents' time. You're really lucky if you have ever had the opportunity to go through your grandparents' wedding pictures. Trust me, mine wore jewellery that I cannot even name now!
Then, I saw my mother's wedding pictures and while most of the things remained the same, she didn't wear a nath at her wedding. Nor did my aunts, or their friends!
But thank God for our generation, bridal naths are back in trend and how! A nath not only adds character to your look, but also accentuates it like nothing else- a sure shot way to draw all attention to you and ensure that no eye ever leaves your side! Oh, how I wish I could wear one of those gorgeous pieces my grandma wore at her wedding and show you!
Well, if you too, drool over those large, chunky vintage naths like we do, but don't think you can sustain all that weight through the celebrations, then here's something especially for you! We made a list of different types of naths that you can probably choose from!
For your convenience, we divided this post into the following categories-
- Minimal Naths
- Oversized Naths
- Vintage Naths
- Motyanchi Nath or Guchhedar Nath Or The Marathi Nath
- Unique Naths With Colored Stones
- Floral Naths
- Tiny Rings/ Ringlet Naths
- Naths With Strings Or Latkan
- Abstract Nath
- Lightweight Naths
Whoosh, now that is one long list! If you don't know the difference between a Nizami nath versus a Guchhedaar nath, then there are only two ways to know. Either you let Sanjay Leela Bhansali explain with his movies, or well, let us do it for you! :P
So, here's looking at a nath style for every kind of bride!
