An Indian bride, on her wedding day, wears various ornaments from her head to her toes. Important among these are bangles. Also addressed as Choodis, Bangdya, Kangans (and by several other names), bangles form a vital part of an Indian married woman’s attire.
In fact; as per the Hindu customs, it is inauspicious for a woman to leave her arms bare. Modern women have bent these rules a bit; many opt to wear inconspicuous bracelets instead of elaborate bangles and some have even given them up completely.
That being said; bangles form an important part of the bridal trousseau and are definitely worn by brides on the wedding day.
Wedding Bangles have a different significance in different communities. The colors of glass bangles also have different meanings.
Accordingly, red stands for energy, blue bangles signify wisdom; green is the perfect wedding color that signifies good luck, yellow stands for happiness and so on.
