Tamil Brahmin brides opt for a silk kanjeevaram which is nine-yard long with gold border and bright colors whereas the non-brahmin brides go for the standard six-yard ling saree. Odiyanan (hip belt), Vanki- armlet, Manga Malai- a mango shaped necklace completes the entire tamil bride look.

  • Earrings: Brides go for golden jhumkis traditionally styled with a string.

  • Necklace: Multiple layers of neck pieces are worn by the south indian women in their wedding day.

Temple jewellery is pretty famous down in South India with intricate designs that are worn by the brides on their wedding day. Pendants with fish, lotus, serpent etc motifs are also part of the multiple layering of the neck pieces.

  • Waist/Hip Belt: Oddiyanam also known as the waist belt which made up of gold which keeps the draped saree in place. It is offered to the bride along with a silk saree before her wedding day.
