Marathi wedding, bridal saree and jewellery
Typical Maharashtrian bridal saree colours are yellow, green and purple. These sarees are usually called Paithanis and they have a golden border. The hairstyle is usually a bun adorned with mogra flowers ("gajara"). Nose ring or "Nath" is worn. The bindi is typical and shaped like a crescent moon with a dot below it. Bangles are always green in colour with interspersed gold bangles in between or on the sides. Marathi style of wearing a saree is called "Kashta" or "Navari" saree and is usually when the saree is tucked from in between the legs.
