Bridal Bangles - 50 Gorgeous And Elegant Bangle Sets Of All Time

Bridal bangles are an essential part of every bridal ensemble. They don’t just complete the whole bridal look, bridal bangles are steeped in Indian bridal traditions.An Indian bridal look essentially has 16 components which are called the solah shringaar and bangles are the most prominent of the lot. Bridal bangles come in different shapes, sizes, colours, patterns and materials, just the way you want them to be. You get a gazillion options to choose from when you actually set out to purchase your wedding set. Now, like I always say, every state in India has its own speciality when it comes to the wedding attire. So when it comes to the designs, you just can’t generalise.

Just in case you are confused about what type of bridal bangles to buy for your wedding, here are some options for you to choose from. Take a look.

1. Simple Punjabi Chura

A Punjabi chura is a set of red and white bridal bangles arranged together in a particular pattern. The thickness of the white bangles is more than that of the red bangles. Even though it is traditionally worn by Punjabi brides, these days brides from other cultures too add them to their wedding look as a fashion trend.

2. Bridal Bangles – Fancy Chura With Names And Added Glittery Bangles

Some brides prefer to add special custom-made bridal bangles to their chura with the names of the couple engraved on them. Along with them they add kadas which can either be of kundan or same white material, just in a thicker form with glitter.
