Oriya wedding’s distinctiveness comes from the rituals and customs. A series of rare traditions are seen at The Oriya Wedding.
However, like all the Indian Weddings, Oriya Bridal’s Attire is a topic of much interest!
Traditionally, Orissa Brides wear yellow saris with flaming red borders and side work. These Sarees are called Baula patta.
But, modern-day brides in Orissa prefer Kanjeevaram, Banarasi, or Ikkat Silk Sarees.
One of the essentials of the Oriya Bride Ensemble is Uttariyo or Dupatta. This embellished piece of cloth is full of zari work and sequins.
She accompanies it with headgear and appealing gold jewelry.
Next comes the Bangles or Shankha Pola that comes in a red and white combination.
The fourth most important component of the Oriya Wedding Trousseau is the Mukuta.
It is adorned by both the bride and the groom on the wedding day.
Apart from these, uniqueness lies in the way it is being celebrated over the years. While most Indians apply Mehendi on their wedding day. Oriya Brides prefer Aalta.
What makes an Oriya Bride look different is her makeup!
When it comes to makeup, Orissi Brides opt for sober yet elegant makeup!
Start with setting proper base. First use concealer to hide blemishes and then use a foundation suiting your skin tone.
Next, choose a nude or peachy blusher. Then apply it on the apple of your cheeks. After this, use a highlighter to enhance the shape of the face.
Eyes are a significant part of the overall makeup. Therefore, work on making the eyes as expressive as possible.
Some Orissi Girls opt for small red and white bindis surrounded all above the eyebrows.
Then, use a primer to set a base for the eye makeup. Now choose an eyeshadow of your choice and apply a thin stroke of eyeliner on the outer line and water line.
Complete the eye makeup with kohl kajal and mascara.
Finish the look by choosing the lipstick of your choice.
