No bride wants to look average on her D-day. To have a Rajasthani look, a bride needs to wear a Ghaghra choli with a long odhani (dupatta). One end of odhani should tuck on Ghaghra, and the other should cover the head. This is the ritual of Rajasthani weddings. Ghaghra is a long skirt usually made of Chunari and mothra prints with zardozi work on it. Ghaghra can be of any colour because Rajasthan is a land of colours and traditions.
