Traditional Maharashtrian Bride
Dressed in a beautiful yellow saree with a golden border, hair tied in a bun and decorated with pearl ornaments and gajra, she is a gorgeous Maharashtrian bride. Unlike the other Indian communities, where the brides usually wear red, this saree, traditionally a Paithani, comes in very typical colours of golden yellow, leaf green or aubergine.
Apart from the attractive sunshine yellow of the saree, what sets her apart are the traditional ornaments that she dons. Maharashtrians mostly prefer blending in pearl jewellery along with gold, which has several references in Marathi literature and poetry as well. Here are the typical adornments of a traditional Maharashtrian bride.
