Brides love to customize and amp up their bridal look in every which way. We have seen quite a few gradual changes in the overall bridal avatar with time. And the newest one on the list is bridal bangles! Brides opting for traditional choora designs and altering it to add their own personal touch isn’t new. We have seen many gorgeous bridal bangle stacks with choora, so today we wanted to explore in a different direction.
The newest rage among brides-to-be is to add different designs and statement kadas to their bangle stack. The variations can range from silk thread bangles to lakh to plastic choora embedded with beads. Adorning your pretty mehendi laden bridal hands with bangles has been going on for ages! New brides also wear them in the few days following marriage. On the plus side, choosing a non-choora design will make your bangles useful after the new bride phase passes.
So if you are bored of the traditional choora design and want to explore something else, down here we list 25 brides who wore gorgeous bridal bangles on their wedding that aren’t chooras!
