Brides of today are finally giving the due attention to their bridal dupatta styling and we are loving every bit of it! Whether it is the color combinations for double dupattas, the draping styles or the dupatta designs, contemporary brides are making fashion-conscious choices when it comes to their bridal dupattas and how! Recently we spotted the beauteous trend of bandhani bridal dupattas, and you all went gaga over it. Much to our delight, there's one more gorgeous bridal dupatta trend taking over our Instagram feeds that we can't wait to share with you guys.

So, continuing our ritual of bringing forth new bridal fashion trends, today we introduce you to the jaalidaar bridal dupattas. The regal dupattas with jaalidaar aka checkered patterns that once relished a special space in the wardrobes of our moms and grandmoms have made a superb comeback in the bridal fashion scene. The hypnotic patterns of maze-like jaalidaar work spread all over the dupatta's expanse instantly lend a traditional touch to the bridal look taking us back to our cultural roots whilst looking fashionable at the same time. We spotted a lot of brides amping up their bridal avatars with fashionable jaalidaar dupattas on their D-day and thought to brim you with the mandatory dose of inspiration.

Jaalidaar or Checkered Bridal Dupattas

Blogger Bride's Traditional look in Red

Famous fashion blogger, Karishma Yadav recently tied the knot and reinstated our faith in the checkered bridal dupattas. She opted for double dupattas and a monotoned red bridal look with highlights of golden. We love how the jaalidar dupatta veil is falling in front on one side and accentuating the overall ensemble.

However, her bewitching bridal dupatta is yet another aspect that we can't stop eyeing. The heavily repleted gota-patti checkered patterns are winning our hearts.
