Lehenga? Check! Jewellery? Check! But wait, are you missing something? Almost no bride remembers her mangalsutra until the last minute, yet it’s the only piece of jewellery you’ll wear after your wedding, aside from your engagement ring. Previously, mangalsutras were only available in a few classic styles, but nowadays, many women choose varied patterns and materials to reflect their personalities while also ensuring that their mangalsutra is suitable for daily wear. So, if you’re planning a wedding this season, take a look at these hot new mangalsutra designs, which are suitable for both conventional and millennial brides.

Mangalsutra with a Zodiac Essence
With her looks and costumes, Sonam Kapoor provided us with plenty of wedding inspiration, but it was her mangalsutra design that we couldn’t get enough of. Her mangalsutra was adorned with the symbols of her and Anand Ahuja’s zodiac signs, as well as a solitaire in the centre. This is one of the most unique designs that Sonam Kapoor wore.
A Personalized Design
Personalization has never been more prevalent in Indian weddings. If you’re looking for a personalized mangalsutra that includes both your and your spouse’s names, this is the one to go for. In the infinity-shaped gold pendant, the couple’s name is elegantly etched. This is becoming an increasing trend where the bride tends to wear a design containing a name of the combination of both the better half’s names.

Take a look at this one-of-a-kind mangalsutra with leaf-shaped diamond clasps on one side and a typical triple thread of black and golden beads on the other. This is one of the most beautiful types of mangalsutra that not only is unique in its design but also enhances the show of the design as it tends to stand out amidst the other types of jewellery worn by the bride. It is an apt example of a combination of modern design and ancient traditions.
Heart Mangalsutra Design
You can choose this wonderful mangalsutra design that boats of ‘all things love’ to show your undying love for your partner.

This mangalsutra design is enhanced by a delicate heart etched with a short string on the principal pendant.
Paisley Pop Mangalsutra Design
The paisley pattern may be found everywhere in Indian weddings, from mehndi patterns to the bride’s lehenga embellishments. And here’s a mangalsutra with a noticeable embossed paisley motif on the large square gold pendant that’s worth admiring. This mangalsutra design has a lot of interesting components. The pendant’s borders, for example, are embellished with floral designs, large gold balls dropping, and ‘jaalidaar’ work in the middle.
