Today’s modern Brides are going for the more minimalistic designs and trends. We can see this in their jewellery as well. As for the bride’s bestie, it is best to stick to this trend and keep your jewellery to a minimum too. Go for singular statement pieces rather than chunky, multi-thread pieces. Read more about the jewellery trends below to get a fair idea of what you can wear.
Jhumkas, Jhumkas, Jhumkas. There are so many designs and styles for this traditional earrings that they are easily the most versatile of all jewellery.

While the Bride may choose from a wide variety of Maang Tikkas – the over-sized maang tikka, the side-swept Jhoomer of the muslim bride or the conservative style of the South Indian bride with the one-tier matha patti – you, the best friend of the bride have some good choices too!
Check some of these styles of simple and elegant maang tikkas that can add a dash of charm to your wedding-day outfit. It would be wise to pick out a simple, single-thread gold or silver maang tikka that ends in a small pendant style borla.

Some pointers to remember when picking out your jewellery
- Stick to the theme – silver, gold, rose-gold, temple jewellery, white stones – whatever style you pick, just stick to the theme and pick out all the jewellery along the same lines.
- Do not overdo. Sometimes with a large jhumka, you need not wear a neck piece. Remember that less is more, when it comes to jewellery.
- Jewellery colors need not always match your outfit colors. Think contrasting shades, think complementary shades, think out of the box. Try not to wear all-pink and end up like a flamingo at the party.
- Choose jewellery that fits your face shape and structure. If you have a big forehead, the maang tikka is perfect to adorn your forehead. In this way, choose jewellery that will actually add to your natural beauty.
