Has anyone worn a mangalsutra with an “american” style white gown? Please post pics. I’m thinking of a gujarati style mangalsutra with black and yellow gold beads.
Any suggestions on a white wedding gown that would look good with yellow and black beads???? :-/

If you are going to wear it then I’d consider going with a custom design. You can minimize the black beading by making it mostly pearls broken up with a few gold and black beads. Then use some black accents on the gown, such as a sash. Of course, family willingness to deviate from pre-made mangalsutra-ey mangalsutras comes into play. they don’t HAVE to be as black-beady, all depends on your mom/MIL (as the case might be) and her views on that. I know my mom wanted to drop a few black beads in a hiddy pre-existing coral/pearl/gold necklace she gave me at 10 and call it a day.
