India

Ghaghra choli is the favourite female attire worn during weddings, festivals and special events in India, especially in the North. It is usually made a silk or another quality fabric, and heavily decorated with embroidery, whilst the brides will additionally decorate themselves with bridal make-up, jewellery, including a nose chain (fig.), and apply mehndi (fig.) to their hands and feet.
