Mayoon/Dars Jewellery Guide
– Ideally, the bride must avoid getting bedecked with too many jewels for this ceremony.

Mehndi Jewellery Guide
– Hath phools, maang tikkas, heavy earrings and anklets are the quintessential adornments that a Pakistani bride must wear at the mehndi ceremony.
– Gota jewellery is another option that we highly recommend for mehndi ceremony.
– Personalised accessories are making a lot of noise these days, and we totally root for them!

– Wear gold or polki only if you are wearing a lehenga.
– Glam up things with a voguish hair accessory like a hair crown, embellished clip or dainty embellishments like pearl drops and flowers.
– For the wrists, ditch a full-fledged stack of bangles. Opt for diamond bangles or a bracelet instead.
Dholki Jewellery guide

Baraat jewellery guide
– Chooda and Kaleeras are the real essentials of a Pakistani bride’s wedding day look. They can’t be skipped!
– For the bridal jewels, earrings, neckpiece(s) and a nath are pretty much compulsory. But you can choose between a matha patti or a maang tikka or choose to wear both with a twist. Pakistani jewellery is so diverse and versatile that you can actually embrace both minimalism and maximalist, as per your preferences.
– Layering necklaces is a hep trend. However, choose your necklace according to the type of blouse neckline (or vice versa).

– Stick to the dazzling diamonds if you’re wearing a western silhouette.
– However, you can go with the evergreen polkis and kundan too.
– Remember, the reception is supposed to be a chill event! Don’t unnecessarily bog yourself down with the weight of heavy jewels.
