Blend the thumkas with the jhumkas
We know you don’t want to ruin that gorgeous Mehendi! It’s best to go minimal at this function. We suggest a stunning maangtika or these classic Jhumkas we found at CaratLane, perfect to be worn for a mehendi function. These Jhumkas will set you apart from the rest as you practice your Bollywood “thumkas”.
You could also put on a pair of anklets to amp up your style. If you like necklaces, then consider wearing an ethnic gold necklace to add sparkle to the already colorful mehendi festivities.
Go simple and classy for rituals
We all know weddings in India are full of religious rituals and poojas. These are also the perfect occasions where you can make the most of those ethnic sets handed down to you over generations. But you also don’t want to go over the top at these smaller functions. Embrace your traditional side with a saree paired with simple gold earrings and a festive clutch to match. Keeping your look uncluttered is imperative, so only wear one or two pieces of jewelry to be able to stand out. You could even try a delicate gold necklace with a pastel colored outfit to get that ethereal look for an auspicious pooja before the wedding.
