Jaimala ideas for the millennial couples

Context: Buying the right jaimala (aka varmala) is essential to up your styling game for your D day. Yes! We totally believe jaimala should be taken seriously… Take it from our celeb couples who are always colour coordinated with the right jaimalas.

Now that we have talked about why we need it – let’s dive into the “which” part of choosing the right jaimala.

Dark to light and vis-a-vis, if you are opting for a dark colour for your outfit then choose light flowers for the jaimala that way it won’t camouflage, and it will complement your outfit.

Fun fact: Jaimala goes way back with its mention in Vedas; it has significance in Hindu culture – it is believed that the Hindu gods married by exchanging garlands. Thus, it became part of every Hindu wedding irrespective of caste and religion. Jaimala is also the first ritual of the wedding ceremony.

Pro Tip: Pick a jaimala that stands out/contrasts and does not camouflage your outfits. Make sure your flowers are fresh, or it will kill the look of your outfit as its the second thing catching everyone’s attention. Don’t opt for bulky as it will hide your gear and accessories and can get really tricky. Check for any allergies you have. Last but not least it should also go with the wedding theme.
