(fashion trends) Indian weddings are a celebration. It may amaze some of the western cultures, that how we plan a function which lasts for days and has more than a few thousand guests, to such detail.

Jewellery really plays a very important part in the whole celebrations- to show love, affection, and to make the bride look flawless. We are here to tell you the latest jewellery trends to be a gorgeous bride on your D-day. Be it the bride herself, or her mother, all would find this guide very useful.
