#Trending: Embellished Coconuts at South-Indian Weddings!

BY The WMG Bride | 14 Mar, 2016

The things that need immediate attention at South-Indian weddings: Is all the gold on the bride? Is the grooms outfit in place? Enough Marigolds and a large basket full of banana leaves? Yes siree! Nowadays, there's a new question - Is the coconut the bride carries shiny enough? Errr...what??? Yes, that was us too. We wondered why this question popped up until we saw the new cool wedding coconuts that are doing the rounds at South-Indian weddings. Call it the chic addition but embellished coconuts is as nutty an ideas as it is cool. 1451756720_11421511_10207283649748362_665389299_n coconuts1 What are embellished coconuts? Well, they are those coconuts the bride carries with her as she proceeds to sit by the homam or the fireplace at the mandap. And as coconuts are an inevitable addition, these days they are being embellished with new and fun designs and precious stones. Boy, are these designs cool or what? Wedding coconut decoration or sriphal decoration is very famous in South India. coconuts1451756713_11402638_950579115006053_5348534521804014044_o What kind of designs are we talking about here? You can embellish them with stones and Swarovskis - add in a nice hand-painted design. Also embedd names of the bride and groom if you want. Put on a flower net on top with gajras. Get mythological characters painted or just names recreated beautifully. It's a piece of art so you can go crazy! You can even make them into ducks, swans and things - just ones that go along with the shape of a coconut. And add sequins, stones, pearls, gold beads...you name it! Add your favourite God into the mix and keep it sweet. 1451756726_11722440_411960218994394_4791906826954234880_o 1451756710_IMG_20150203_WA0054 Where can we get this now?
