Maang Tikka Or Matha Patti – What To Wear For Your Wedding? While the lehenga is going to be the most attractive element of your attire on your wedding day, everything else you wear is only going to complement it and enhance its appearance. You need to choose everything from your lehenga to your jewellery, makeup, hairdo, mehendi, and footwear very carefully. Speaking of jewellery, every single piece of jewellery will count. You may be focusing on your neckpiece, earrings, bangles, and rings the most; but don’t forget that it is your headpiece also that counts the most. After all, the “sindoor” is the most significant part of the wedding ceremony. A wedding is incomplete without the man filling the lady’s maang with sindoor. This makes everyone’s eyes focusing on that part of your head too. So, you need to choose your headpiece very wisely too.

Confusion! Confusion! One confusion here for every bride is whether she should opt for a maang tikka or a matha patti. Both these elements are equally alluring with the best of designs available. Their individual appeals make it really hard for the bride-to-be to choose her favourite. But, unfortunately, you “have to” choose just one out of the two. You can't wear both of them! So then, which one do you choose? Can't decide? Worry not, we are here to help.


The headpiece is an important element First and foremost, you need to understand that the headpiece is not just a piece of jewellery; it defines your face in terms of shape and size. It either makes you look amazing or average. Making a wrong choice will not only affect your look, but also your photographs – the album that you should be cherishing lifelong. After all, the most focus in the photographs will be on your face.

Factors to consider Now, let us get back to whether you should choose a maang tikka or a matha patti. There are quite a few considerations you need to make carefully before deciding upon which one to select. We have listed down some of them here.  The shape of your face – The shape of your face will immediately help you decide which one of the two you should select. If you have a round face, you must refrain from wearing matha pattis, as they will only make your face look rounder. Thus, you should opt for maang tikkas with certical tikkas to create an illusion of a longer face. On the other hand, if you have a square shaped face, a matha patti is the better choice as it will give your face a little roundness. But, for those with an oval face, the confusion remains, because an oval shaped face looks great with both maang tikkas and matha pattis.  The size of your forehead – If you have a short forehead, you must choose a delicate maang tikka. Avoid any kind of oversized headpiece. But, if you have a big forehead, you can have a big headpiece – again, with a confusion whether you should don a maang tikka or matha patti, as both will look great on your big forehead.  The width of your face – If you have a long narrow face, you must opt for a chunky matha patti, as this will add some width to your face. In contrast, if you have a broad face, you should choose a dainty and delicate headpiece – any of the maang tikka or matha patti. Overall, if you have a small face, opt for a maang tikka; and if you have a big face, you can experiment with big baubles. Whatever your choice, you can always have the best gold jewellery in Bangalore designed to suit your face, customized as per your choice and preferences only at Aura Jewels, where a team of skilled designers and craftsmen await your presence!
