NETHI CHUTTI (maang tikka) styles for every bride !
Nethi chuttis make or break a look. Different face structures need to be treated differently. A lot of brides go for the look that their mothers and grandmothers have been portraying for generations as a part of their wedding tradition. But, brides today are re defining the wedding style in contemporary ways.
TRADITIONAL KEMP STYLE –
Now, there are the traditional “kemp nethi chuttis” which are very famous and can be spotted in almost all the tam-bram weddings. It is a super super gorgeous look but may not suit all the brides i.e say if you have a small forehead or a really tiny and round face you may not be able to pull it off. In this case you can stick to the roots of your tradition and experiment with different ways of wearing it.
If you are going to wear gold jewellery for the big day, kemp is your pick for chuttis.
This picture shows the traditional chutti that has been in our indian wedding tradition for decades !
HOW YOU CAN EXPERIMENT –
Now, this is the kind of experiment we are talking about. You could ditch the entire part of the chutti except the pendant. You could wear a big kemp pendant with a traditional design like this one with dangling pearls to keep the kemp look intact.
We SHOULD talk about actress Sneha’s look if we are discussing nethi chuttis. Her Nethi chutti was super super gorgeous in such a contemporary way ! She truly did re-define the look !
This is another look and my favourite ! This look sports both the single line nethi chutti and the Suriyan and Chandran from traditional style on the head. This way brides that have a smaller forehead can ensure that their face doesn’t look too round.
The look with just the reds and greens is another beautiful yet simple look. If your wedding jewellery is dominated with these colors you can go for this look.
Pearls are so classy any day and are an all time favorite ! The best part about pearls is that they never go out of style. They are affordable and they come is so many different varieties. Pearl maang tikkas can be worn either with kundan, pearl or with diamond jewellery.
As we know pearls come in different shapes and sizes. We can pick the right size of pearls that suit your face structure and have them custom-made to your favorite design. If you are a bride that does not love gaudi things, then pearls are your best friends.
You could either opt for a big pendant type tikka with a single strand attached to it or go all out and pick the step or layered types were the pendant of the tikka is attached to several layers that run across your whole head or just the forehead !
GOLD NETHI CHUTTIS – Weddings mean gold, gold means jewellery and jewellery typically means GOLD ! Gold has and will always remain a bride first choice of jewellery when it comes to her wedding. And chuttis that come in gold are so elegant and can be paired with gold and kemp jewellery ! Here are some of our favorite looks !
KUNDAN AND POLKI’S – These seem to be the trend these days. Kundan and polkis are different in nature but look more or less the same. And if you are a layman like I am you sure cannot tell the difference. LOL :p When we were searching pictures to put up in the post, the number of designs that turned up were UNLIMITED !!
They come in so many different styles, designs and sizes !! If it’s a single layered chutti you can pair it up even if gold jewellery, but if it’s dominated by kundan’s and several layers it would look good when combined with kundans !
SILVER NETHI CHUTTI – These nethi chutti’s are sooooooo gorgeous and chic!!! These can be worn for the mehendi or pre wedding functions with huge jhumkis !! The best part about these chutti’s is that they can be worn not only for your own wedding but for other parties as well ! 😀
MUGHAL STYLE – If you wish you could even go back a few hundred years and opt for the mughal style ! This look is really elegant and a little foreign to south indian weddings. But again this look would look good mostly with lehengas in particular. However, this look is particularly known for in muslim tradition
So if you are bold enough to go for this look, go for it ! Don’t forget to send us a picture if you do ! 😀
