47 Mathapatti Designs To Complement Every Bridal Style

Mathapatti

As we move towards the 2021/ 2022 wedding season, the trend of intimate weddings has dialed down the maximalist style on the big day. But the one thing that it hasn’t changed is the brides’ staying true to their individualistic style. While picking elements for their bridal look, they’re holding their vision to the highest standards. From the wedding dress to jewelry to makeup, each component matters. And if you want to spruce up your D-Day look, the one element that can do that perfectly is a bridal mathapatti. 

The traditional headgear not only adds a dramatic, old-world charm to your ensemble but goes with all kinds of bridal styles – from elegant, minimalistic, to OTT. Don’t believe us? These 47 mathapatti designs will change your mind. We’ve fished out the most gorgeous ones from the Internet to serve you some inspiration and help you sort out your big day look better. 




At the end of the blog, find some links to purchase this theatrical headgear online. 

#1 Starting off the list with this viral bridal look which remains relevant to this day. Samridhi’s OTT bridal jewelry came with an exquisite mathapatti design that added the perfect glam to her maximal bridal style. Paired with a bold bindi and a red lehenga, a timeless, elegant wedding ensemble doesn’t get any better than this.

#2 If the golden kundan mathapattis doesn’t quite radiate your style, then this fuss-free polki one will awe you. The key is to balance your wedding jewelry to create the look you want. In this case, the bride opted for simple headgear to let her dramatic choker & rani haar set stand out. We recommend the same if you want your neckpiece to be the crowning glory of your ensemble.

#3 Shining bright like a diamond on her D-Day with blingy elements. From her golden heavily-sequined lehenga to the shining polki set, every part of her bridal look screams that she is a glitter lover and embracing the same. Owing to the repeated details of the headpiece, your jeweler would be able to replicate this piece well too.

#4 Unlike what the popular notion says that there’s a mathapatti for a certain face shape, we believe you can find your preferred style no matter what face shape you have. All you have to do is hunt down your favorite stores and try them in person. Like this bride picked a traditional Rajputi style mathapatti for her pheras, complementing her royal Rajasthani look well.

#5 A ghungroo-style mathapatti with pearl hangings looks gorgeous always. And no matter what lehenga hue you’re wearing, it will complement the shade well. Here’s a bride in the traditional red wedding getup to inspire those who love the conventional style more than anything. And yes, Deepika’s Sada Saubhagyavati Bhavah dupatta is still trending and can add a celebrity charm on your wedding day.

#6 A Rajputi-style mathapatti consists of a band that goes in the middle of the crown of your head rather than around the hairline. While this style is common in Rajasthan, it’s catching up in other parts of India too (it was a part of Deepika’s Sindhi wedding look as well). If you’re fascinated by this style, here’s a pearl-style Rajputi Mathapatti or sheeshpatti to inspire your own wedding headpiece.

#7 While there’s no dearth of dramatic elements to add to an Indian bridal look, elaborate headgear certainly can make for a great one. Love how this bride added an ornate one to her otherwise simple styling choices and left us all with a winsome wedding look.

#8 The debate that a maangitkka or a mathapatti suits a certain face shape better is the one we don’t agree with. According to us, brides with any face structure can carry any of these headgears elegantly. Take a look at our heart-face-shaped beauty sporting an embellished mathapatti with utter grace. Keep scrolling and you’ll know that a mathapatti can look amazing with any face structure.

#10 The pretty pearls in her jewellery are a gorgeous addition and adds a charming elegance to the otherwise kundan bridal set. Besides the headgear, this bridal portrait is also pin-worthy because of the winsome simple nath design and charming bridal makeup

#11 This gorgeous bride punctuated her zardozi embroidered lehenga with a kundan bridal mathapatti. The chunky strands with an oversized jadau tikka look gorgeous in this side portrait. Don’t forget to get a shot like this to commemorate your classic bauble picks.

#12 We know you’re distracted by the appealing neckpiece in her portrait (we are too!), but that polki mathapatti design sure takes some attention too. The blue in her jewelry adds a romantic touch to the monochrome golden lehenga. Who knew this color combination would look so perfect? If you’re wearing golden too, definitely consider this striking pairing.

#18 A mathapatti for a haldi look isn’t a common choice, but a good one nonetheless. Look at how bride Rashi paired her yellow Abhinav Mishra lehenga with a distinctive mathapatti made with chunky pearl strands. A superb pick for brides who want to experiment with their bauble choices on the wedding revelries.

#24 It’s your wedding day – your most special day and it deserves all the over-elaborate attributes you can possibly infuse. The bride pictured here did that with a gorgeously embellished blue meenakari mathapatti with an equally elaborate tikka.

#29 A heavy kundan mathapatti gracing the hairline well and aligning with other trinkets is just the inspiration a bride-to-be needs. To let the piece really stand out, pair it with a sheer veil and attach it a few inches above the top of your head.
