Bengali Bride Who Follow Their Tradition!
India is a country which is all about diversity – yes, the diversity is quite visible even in brides and their bridal wear. I have often heard my Bengali friends being asked some inane (and illogical) questions about their wedding looks. But I am sure, just like me, you’d agree that Bengali Bride Who Follow Their Tradition! are the prettiest and their weddings, quite fancy.
I have often heard the phrase ‘beauty is in simplicity’ and that is especially true for a Bengali Bride. She is the epitome of graceful and timeless beauty – and unlike modern brides, they try to be as free from artifice as possible.
The crowning glory
Topor is the white coloured tiara that completes a Bengali bridal look. Tradition says that this is a good luck crown of her life.
The topor, also known as the ‘mukut’ is made of a substance known as the white cork (or shola as it is called in Bengali) which lends a dash of elegance and delicateness to the whole bridal look.
Elegance of chandan
Chandan is use for bengali bride’s looks increase. With the chandan and sindur bridal make up is done. You can see how beautiful is this bride with her makeup.
Classic jewellery that goes a long way!
Bengali jewelries are, by a very large margin, quite popular in the market when it comes to weddings, whether the bride is Bengali or not, and with good reason too!
Their different design make her special from other jewellery. It’s little bit looks like south indian jewellery. Every bride wants jewellery and specially on her wedding day. Jewellery is the beauty of bride.
Pola and Shankha – the must have Bengali marital bangles
Many of us don’t know about bengali pola which is called as bangels. This is the tradition jewellery of bengali. Without pola and shankha bridal makeover is nothing.
They are red and white in color and usually worn on the left hand of the Bengali bride. There is another set of bangles called loha (since they are made of iron) that are also worn. Together these three make a very important part of not only the bengali bridal jewellery, but also of the traditional ceremonies!
Invest in a beautiful Bengali saree
To complete your bridal look, every Bengali bride worth her money must invest in a traditional bengali bridal saree. The best bet for a Bengali bride is to go for a heavy work benarasi saree instead of a traditional lehenga, because well, anyone can wear a lehenga including your guests.
