This is a perfect Mallu bride. With heavy gold jewelry. Try to layer your jewelry till the part where your waist band is tied. More layers tends to make it way overboard.

If you are confused about your jewelry layering, these are some easy pointers. Yellow gold with temple jewelry works. Only temple jewelry or temple jewelry mixed with antique gold jewelry works very well. If you are layering your diamond jewelry or thinking of mixing your gold and diamond jewelry go for it, but make sure one kind of jewelry does not go above the other. Create a balance. Make sure your garlands do not block your jewelry out. So essentially have a statement choker.
