Hey girls! The wedding season has finally arrived! Now that Arpita Khan is married, we can talk about other things as well :-p Are you planning to wear a maang tikka on your wedding day? – not all brides do – but good news is you may be surprised to find how many options you have to choose from! From oversized maang tikka’s that are the latest trend to mughal inspired jhoomers to one-tier and two-tier maatha patti’s, your choices are limitless! One cannot deny that the humble maang tika has become one of the most important bridal accessory. While my personal favourite remains the kundan and semi precious maang tikka’s available in different colors, I also adore petite and elegant pendant styled ones and chandelier shaped ones that gracefully fall in place and suit most face cuts.
Here’s a look at 10 different styles of maang tikka’s encrusted with everything from high-end crystals to precious stones. Is it any wonder that brides-to-be immersed in planning their weddings get a little overwhelmed? 🙂
Small Kundan/Diamond ‘Pendant’ Style Maang Tikka
While the best part about choosing this is that it fits perfectly and looks good on all face types, it is also the most common style of wearing a maang tika.
One Tier Maang Tikka
Absolutely love the one tier maang tika also called maatha patti.
Multi Layered Maang Tika
If you aren’t shying away from an overly done bridal look, the multi tiered maatha pati looks absolutely stunning.
Nawabi Style Half Maatha Patti
Inspired by the nawabs, this is yet another regal way of wearing a matha patti.
One of the most prominent new trend this year is the jhoomer style tikka. Gorgeous, I say!
Aishwarya Ria pretty much nailed this traditional Rajasthani bridal look in Jodha Akbar.
Pearl Strings attached to Maang Tikka
Delicate and ethereal, this combination will make you look like a maharani on your wedding day.
Oversized Maang Tika
For the gutsy bride, an oversized maang tika can make quite a style statement. A rather unique headpiece made famous by Sonam Kapoor in recent times, we are big fans of the oversized maang tika. Just make sure it suits your face type. If you have a small forehead, you’d rather stay away!
South Indian Style Maang Tikka
Earring Style Maang Tika
Hope this helps you find your perfect match! Be back tomorrow girls!
