Maharashtrian weddings or lagna (in Marathi) are as lavish as you can imagine. If you have attended a Maharashtrian wedding you can relate to us well. If not, let us walk you through some Maharashtrian bridal looks to give you a glimpse.
The attire is mostly a traditional saree such as Nauvari (nine yards), Paithani, Shalu. Some brides do opt for other heavily embroidered sarees such as gorgette but their overall bridal look is same.
You will find the Navari (means bride in Marathi) sporting mehendi on her hands which are beautifully adorned by green bangles. Maharashtrian brides wear a green chuda for their weddings that are odd numbered green glass bangles. They are usually mixed with real gold bangles like tode, patlya.
While we refer to odd numbered green bangles they can be anything in number of 6, 9, 12 on each hand. For my wedding I had adorned 23 bangles on one hand and 24 on another (the addition of both bangles should be odd, usually for the bride).
The jewellery a Marathi bride wears is traditional. It can include kolhapuri saaj, vaki, nath (a maharashtrian nose pin), thushi (traditional choker necklace), mohan maal ( string style necklace), painjaan (silver anklets). Once married the bride wears a vaatya mangalsutra and jodavi. Also the wedding is incomplete without mundavlya, chandrakor.
Without wasting much time let us check some awesome Maharashtrian Bridal looks.
