I absolutely love the braid decorated with flowers, and they set the bride apart from the rest of the crowd :D. My friend, in her wedding, not only used flowers in her hair, but used it to accessorize over-all, instead of the main-stream jewelelry. I was quite amazed, but now this is common. This is the new trend which has taken the wedding market by storm,The floral jewellery. Almost every bride now wants to adorn floral jewellery on her Mehendi/Haldi functions. This brings a lot of freshness to the functions, a bridal glow and the biggest plus point is that these functions are mostly during daytime, which makes the floral jewellery even better option. All the brides who are apprehensive of going floral, don’t be! Especially on Haldi Function, when there is a huge chance of usual jewellery getting ruined or lost, floral is a much safer, and easy to carry option.
There is this thing about floral jewellery , I think every girl has her own type of floral jewellery depending on the shape of your face.
Also it is very important to choose the right flowers for yourself, the most common flowers used are roses, orchids and jasmine. Combining small flowers like jasmine and marigold with big ones like roses, orchids also looks good.
Though this pic is from a TV serial, the jewellery just sets her apart, its so elegant and I think anyone can carry it off. I especially like her maang tika and earings. The floral jewellery just imparts the fact that this girl is the bride, so easily.
This is a floral jewellery set, it contains: a maang tika, earing , garland, ring, hathphool. I think the one on the yop left is what worn on the forehead on the side, specially by muslims. I remember watching the queens from the Mughal empire wearing similar stuff.
OK Enough Gyaan :P.. Where you can get it?
There are many vendors who sell floral jewelley , one of the very famous ones being Ferns n Petals, Floral Art (Mumbai).
Floral Creations and Wedmegood has some really nice ideas designs on Floral jewellery, do have a look 🙂
How long do the flowers stay and how much time it takes to make one set?
Don’t Worry about the flowers wilting, these flowers stay good for 3 days with proper refrigeration and also it takes about 2 days to make a full set of floral jewellery, so you can order your set almost a week prior to the function and recieve the a day or two before the ceremony.
Artificial flowers combined with pearls also make a pretty set.
These are the flowers we all learnt to make during school, out of satin ribbons, remember?! Who knew they could be transformed like this 🙂
In the end it all depends on you, how comfortable confidant you are to wear and carry these. Don’t go by the trend, trend comes and goes but your wedding is and will be one of the biggest things in your life.
Personally, I prefer little floral jewellery as it looks very fresh, new and different.
