You don’t have to be a Punjabi bride to sport a maang tikka on every wedding function. Whether you’re a Rajasthani bride who loves her borla, or a South Indian bride who will pick a gold nethi chutti, you needn’t restrict yourself to wearing a hair accessory on solely on your wedding day.
Artificial hair accessories or oversized maang tikkas on the Mehendi ceremony to small diamond maang tikkas on the Sangeet that are easy to dance around with – there are SO MANY options out there for you!
While Kundan maang tikkas seem to be the most popular option, there are plenty of beautiful designs in other materials to match your diamond or meenakari jewellery set as well.
