BY Sakshi | 18 Jan, 2018 | 14191 views | 3 min read

Every bride is unique, but there are somethings that are common to all, and that is the bridal jewellery or accessories- while of course you can choose to wear whatever you want, we made a bridal accessory checklist for every bride just in case... you can never be too prepared when you're the bride!

Engagement

  • A pretty embellished pin to add some charm to a bun or hairstyle! 
  • Dainty earrings that are understated and pretty! Long studded ones work great!
  • A simple necklace to bring the look together- we love diamond and emerald ones!
  • Dainty hand jewellery pieces that are elegant, but don't steal the ring's thunder!
  • A nice studded bracelet or bangle that's always classy!
  • An embellished or studded clutch. 
  • A classic pair of heels. 

Mehendi

  • A funky head accessory- be it a Mathapatti, a Maangtikka, a zardozdi hairband or a simple head chain- you can go as boho or colourful with it as you want!
  • Fun earrings- be it gota ones, floral ones, meenakari or even long tassel ones! Ear cuffs are cool too!
  • A choker necklace- gota or floral ones work well!
  • A floral armlet or waist belt if you want one!
  • Bangles and Kadas that are bright and funky and go with your overall look! Haathphools or hand harnesses look great too!
  • Gota rings or enamel ones look great for the Mehendi!
  • A pretty anklet or funky Payal looks good too!
  • An ethnic colourful clutch or pouch.
  • Juttis or kolhapuris to complete the kitschy look!

Cocktail or Sangeet

  • A simple maangtikka, passa or mathapatti which isn't OTT if you're wearing a lehenga. Nothing like that with a gown.
  • Tear drop or elegant long diamond earrings which are a showstopper- perfect for a gown.
  • A diamond necklace or a beaded embellished one with a gown and a pretty Kundan or polki choker with a lehenga.
  • Bangles and Kadas with a lehenga and a bracelet or cuff with a gown- you can even choose not to wear any!
  • A cocktail ring and your engagement ring.
  • A clutch or wristlet to go with the lehenga or the gown.
  • Bridal heels- stilettos or wedges!

  • A statement bridal mathapatti or maangtikka with or without a jhoomer. 
  • Jooda pin for the bridal bun or hair accessories for the braid for South Indian brides.
  • A Nath with or without a chain if you want to wear one!
  • Statement earrings with or without a support chain.
  • One heavy or multiple layered polki or Kundan necklaces. Choker or bib necklace layered with long ones.
  • Your engagement ring and/or a cocktail ring.
  • Chura or bangles with kadas and haathphool.
  • Kaleere for North Indian brides and armlets for South Indian brides. 
  • Waistbelt- fabric, gold, chain or embellished one if you want to wear it.
  • Pajeb or paayal- heavy ones for the wedding.
  • Bridal shoes- wedges, stilettos, juttis, flats or sneakers- whatever rocks your boat!

  • Tear drop or elegant long diamond earrings and a matching diamond set with a single or few strands.
  • Bangles and Kadas with a lehenga and a bracelet or cuff with a gown- an elegant watch also looks great!
