Surya-Chandra Hair ornaments

Surya-Chandra Hair ornaments or Suryaprabha-Chandraprabha

Can you imagine our Pellivadhuvu without sooryudu chandrudu??

Life on earth is sustained due to almighty of sun and peaceful cool moon. Sun governs soul and moon rules emotions and feelings.  

For the Bride: Chandra-prabha (the Moon) and Surya-prabha (the Sun) which are fixed on the left (the Moon) and the right (the Sun) sides of the hair parting with the purpose of endowing the bride with their beauty and shining of sun and moon and to have a balance over emotions and feelings in married life.

Remember: "The Surya billa (Sun) is to be worn on the right and Chandra billa (Moon) on the left."

Sun-Moon hair ornaments almost disappeared in Telugu weddings, but still Tamil brides follow it closely.

Here i'm showing some of the pics of beautiful brides who embranced Surya-Chandra Hair ornaments for their wedding.



 Celebrities :

 My Inspiration to write this blog is "Soundarya Tanikella" after seeing her wedding pics, i could not stop admiring sooryudu-chandrudu and nattu which gave a traditional look to her wedding attire

Tips from Pellipoolajada:
1. Select Pin-type sooryudu chandrudu, than the thread type which looks more like a hair band
2. Puffed hair, with papidi (partition) or without papidi, where to fix soorydudu chandrudu, all depends on your face cut. Ask for trial make-up with all hair accessories to make sure your hairstyle is perfect

& For the hair: Dont forget to order Pellipoolajda, 2-3 weeks in advance

Thanks to all the beautiful brides who wore soorya-chandrulu on their wedding and photographers for capturing them beautifully

Bride and Bondam

Telugu Wedding is a sophisticated affair and is made up of a variety of rituals and ceremonies that expand over several days.
