10 Matha Patti Ideas For The Modern Bride From Real Brides! (Loads of Inspiration Inside)

BY The WMG Bride | 02 Sep, 2015 | 1203 views | 2 min read

Matha pattis are our favourite accessory of the day. They are heavy, classic and ooze loads of sex appeal. And most of all, they are coming back in a big way considering that the past few years were all about keeping it simple with floral crowns and maang tikas. The new bold matha patti is by no means just a traditional jewellery piece -you can kitsch it up, make it funky or keep it classic as well.

1. Pearly Beauty

When in doubt, opt for pearls. You will never go wrong with them because they have the ability to make any outfit sophisticated!

2. Borla and More

Not all matha pattis are made alike - some come with the traditional borla and they simply attain cult status in a jiffy!

3. One Sided

Sometimes, it need not just be a full-on matha patti, it can just have one side strand to showcase it's unique style! Very avant-garde if you ask us!

4. Just Gold

South Indians love their gold and if it's devoid of all stones, even better! Wear the matha patti with rows to offset the kanjeevarams.

5. Kitschy Wonder

Use unconventional ideas and interesting avant-garde designs to boost up your simple but effective kitschy matha patti. And what's more? Let it go around your head instead of behind.

6. Temple Jewellery Ideas

Of course, temple jewellery is the mood of the month - south indian jewellery is making a big big comeback. So look for ones that have rubies, pearls and diamonds to give them an old-school look.

7. Strands with delicate drops



Little drops of polki with a multi strand matha patti = perfection. Everything about this photo we absolutely love- the sunnies, the jewellery and the pink bike


8. The Sabya Mathapatti

You know what we are talking about. The flat, thick mathapatti in kundan/ polki that all sabya models seem to sport.

9. Necklace as a mathapatti

Don't have a mathapatti? Fret not, double up your necklace as one.

10. Diamonds

We adore this diamond mathapatti- it provides an unusual contrast to the traditional fuschia lehenga
