Sheeshpatti Designs Worn By Real Brides

Looks like brides have a new favourite piece of jewellery! Being your ultimate Shaadi BFF, it is our utmost duty to introduce you to everything that’s in vogue. So here we introduce you to a head jewel that is legit everywhere and has cast a spell on our fashionista brides. We are talking about sheeshpattis (or sispattis).

Sheeshpattis have become a raging choice among brides, so much so that they have even surpassed the fad of maang tikkas and matha pattis. It is not us, but our Instagram feeds suggest so. And no, we are not over-exaggerating! This traditional headgear has been in the bridal jewellery scene for long, but it is only now that brides are evidently obsessing over it and embracing the most stunning sheeshpatti designs. 

What Is Sheeshpatti aka Sispatti? How Is It Different From Maang Tikka and Matha Patti?

Sheeshpatti is a Hindi term which means a ‘headband’. Sheesh means head, and patti means a band. In terms of visual appearance, a sheeshpatti is like a concoction of a mathapatti and a maang tikka. A festoon graces the middle of the forehead (just like a maangtikka), and an ornate band covers the head like a hairband. Sheeshpatti bears a striking similarity with mathapattis. But there is a difference. While a mathapatti outlines the forehead, the sheeshpatti is laid on the head but further from the hairline. Even Deepika Padukone wore a sheeshpatti at her Anand Karaj Ceremony. Don’t believe us? Take a look: 

Here is the sheeshpatti design that Deepika wore at her wedding:

Actress Kajal Aggarwal also donned an exquisite sheeshpatti at her wedding. Hers came replete with kundan and multi-coloured stones, and also featured a chandbali-inspired design. 

Read on, as we take you through the latest sheeshpatti designs worn by real brides. You’ll love this traditional headgear as much as we do, we bet!
