Diwali Look - Rajasthani Bridal Lehenga Choli

Have you ever attended a Marwari or a Rajasthani Wedding? In case you havent noticed that the  Rajasthani Bride wears very colourful Gaghra Choli. Generally in India the bride wears a saree or a lehenga according to the region. Marwari Brides wear colourful clothes on their wedding. The colorfulness of the wedding dresses reflects an elite appeal. The lady and the husband to be are wearing the most excellent approach to look best upon the arrival of their marriage. Wedding outfits are typically red in color, yet fluctuate and can additionally be in shades such orange, pink and brilliant yellow.

Rajasthani wedding bridal wear comes the impressive gems of the lady including Gold Anklets, Hanging Studs, Chooda, Bajuband, Bichhiya, Nath, Rakhri. The term Marwari once referred to the area encompassed by the former princely state of Marwar, also called the Jodhpur region of southwest Rajasthan in India.

Red is considered to be the most auspicious color in among Hindus. While saree is preferred as the bridal dress in South India which is a really long piece of cloth. Most brides of northern parts of India prefer Lehenga, Gagra Choli and Odni as bridal dress.

Indian wedding rituals and clothes make the wedding as much as that of the bride and her groom. Both look their splendid best in gorgeous clothes. Not just the couple, but the guests attending the family and the relatives are often seen dressed up. The bride is dressed up in auspicious colors, whereas the bridegroom is dressed look regal. The bridesmaids and best men are often dressed on a par with the bride and the groom. But they are toned down a bit because the day belongs to the couple. All the folks attending the marriage are adorned with gold jewellery. Ladies are additionally adorned with henna all over their palms, hands, forearms, legs and feet. Sometimes henna patterns are replaced with alta designs which are short lived and easily removable.

Indian weddings generally tend to continue for several days and new attire is worn each day. All these dresses and the color symbolize the meaning of marriage and marital life. Indian wedding is one that gives more importance to details like different rituals and the various attires one wears to attend them.

 Alta Feet

Mehendi and Alta are almost the same thing and certainly build on the same design principles, though they are applied differently and are made out of different ingredients. 

The origins of this tradition are very ancient.  The painting of the finger tips and toes red came before painting of nails so I think it would be safe to say the tradition began in India and took on many variations as it made it's way today to a red nail polish.

This tradition exists in India today as a celebratory ritual done mostly for weddings and dance performances. The specific designs can be very subtle, taking all of five minutes to create. There are many books that have recently been printed that have many examples of traditional and modern patterns as far as I know alta is only available in India. It goes on fast and comes off in a day or two, unlike henna.

Henna would work but takes at least an hour to dry and doesn't usually seem dark enough until you keep it covered and do not apply water for atleast 24 hours. You need to heat your hands with covered mehendi over hot tawa, keep it warm you can also apply lemon and sugar syrup over it if you want to become really dark, whereas in alta you can apply it in the morning of your event take about few minutes. If you don't have alta, red food coloring works well. 

Traditionally Alta was squeezed out of these leaves, later sindoor and kum-kum were also dissolved in water to create this dye. Today chemicals and lac are used to manufacture 'Alta', which one must use with precaution. Red Lac (like Indigo) is one of the most ancient of natural dyes, it was the dye used to produce crimson for Persian carpets.

In certain areas of India there is a tradition that after the wedding ceremony, when the bride enters her in-laws house for the first time, she steps in a plate of Alta before crossing the threshold with her right foot, leaving red footsteps behind her. This ceremony exists in India since the beginning of time.


The Mojari originated under the Mughal Empire, where it was decorated with colours, gems, and other ornaments. They are said to have been popularized under the Mughal King Saleem Shah. They are also commonly worn with Shalwar Kameez Choli. Leather shoes have been worn for over 5,000 years by various civilizations, they should not be confused with Mojaris, because Mojaris are unique in their ornamental style, shape, and appearance. it  has evolved through the centuries and is being produced by individual artisans, products vary in designs and colours. 

"This Mojari is made out of cloth embellished with sequinces and is one of mu favourite!!"
