Fashion is never constant and with changing times, the quintessential lehenga choli has been through many transformations with the multitude of accessories available today. The bridal lehenga adds grace and charm to the glowing bride’s look, but the accessories that go with it also speak volumes about her individualistic style.
Other than the usual necklaces and earrings, here is a list of other must-have lehenga choli accessories you need to start shopping for.

You could go wild with the varied types of maang tikkas. Brides looking for something unique in women accessories are ditching one-tier matha pattis and choosing other options like the double or multi-tier mattha pattis, a jhoomar or passa for the nawabi feel. Even the over-sized maang tikkas (worn by brave brides who can handle all the weight) add a touch of elegance.
But what’s grabbing attention of trendy jewellery seekers is the borla, a Rajasthani maang tikka - suavely worn by Aishwarya Rai as seen in the movie Jodha Akbar. Another piece of the latest fashion jewellery is the nawabi-style half matha patti, worn in a side-swept style, which creates a majestic look.

One of the easily forgotten pieces of lehenga choli accessories is the bridal bindi. These tiny bindis represent a woman’s strength and energy. The fashion industry has replaced or we’d rather say redefined bindi’s with over-sized maang tikkas. You’ll notice modern brides ditching this accessory just so they do not have to deal with adjusting the placement or fearing it will come off during the function. However, Weddingz recommends you give your bridal look a traditional touch with a bindi. Based on your face cut, you can experiment with the numerous designer bindi styles available.

A nathni can completely transform your look and is quick to grabs one’s attention. From small dainty nose pins to large, loosely hanging nathnis, chic brides are going all out to ensure the spotlight is only on them. Make sure it is added in your must-have lehenga choli accessories list.
South India’s most popular ornament, a bajuband or an armlet/arm patti is worn on the upper arm. It gives your arms a dressy-look and spruces up your gorgeous mehendi. When going for bajuband shopping, you could easily get confused with the plethora of designs available in the market. Available in gold, silver, diamond and precious gemstone designs, you can find a variety of options to match your jewellery set. Other than the design, there are many options when it comes to fitting. You can opt for a clutch style, a chain style, a thread style, a bangle style or a choker style. Go, explore!

Highlight your svelte figure with a traditional kamarbandh. This piece of women’s accessory works well to maintain the position of your lehenga’s dupatta. It also gives you the freedom to experiment with the style in which you’d like to carry your dupatta. You could have a look at how Esha Deol’s waistband perfectly suits her lehenga and works well to fix the placement of her dupatta. One of our real wedding stories features Neha wearing a furbished waistbelt, matching her choli and we must say she looks fabulous! You can have a look at it here: Neha and Sahil

Your selection of footwear is the biggest and smartest decision you could ever make when planning your bridal look. Since many rituals would require you to walk barefoot or stand for long hours, opting for wedges or flats rather than pencil heels is the wisest thing to do. When it comes to footwear, achieving comfort should be your main focus.
