Traditional Chaniya Choli- The Essence Of A Bridal Wardrobe

Introduction

These dresses have their roots in the Mughal Era. They define Indian values from the core. Notably worn by the Gujaratis and Rajasthanis, they are being adopted nationwide now. Chaniyacholi is a local name for Ghagracholi. These are mostly meant to be worn during marriage functions. If you are a bride you have a myriad of choices to style yourself.
Dupatta is the most crucial section of the attire. In a bridal outfit dupatta is the first thing one notice. These outfits come with a lot of mirror work and embellishments. In order to look stunning and beautiful, here are a number of ways how one may create a style statement out of the dresses.

The Lehenga Style

In this case the dupatta is held over the head and another side of the dupatta is carried across the arm. A little heavy make-up with this kind draping does not do much harm. Bangles go very well with this. One must make sure that the cheeks blush and lips are matched accordingly with shades of red or pink.

Pakistani Style

This style is famous among Pakistani brides but is slowly being adopted in India as well. It is pleated well and draped over arms. Maangtika over the forehead is a must with this kind of draping style.

The Bengali Style

This is another desi bridal look. Inspired from the Bengali tradition, these ChaniaCholis have heavily embellished dupattas taken over the forehead and is pleated on the shoulders while coming to the front. Bengali brides are seen wearing mukuts (crowns) on their special day and the make is usually kept bright with heavy accessorizing.

The Criss-Cross Draping

Taking the dupatta and cris-crossing it over your lehenga is an old way of carrying your bridal outfit. It can be a little uncomfortable for a bride to carry it that way. But one needs to make sacrifices in order to make your special day look extra special.

Punjabi Style

This is the most conservative style worn by North Indian Brides. It has a heavily embroidered dupatta taken around the shoulder like a shawl. Because the attire itself is heavy, not much make-up is required.

Conclusion

Whichever may be your pick, see that it goes well with your body type. Make sure that the dupatta does not hide the entire choli, and it should bring out the best in you.
