A marriage is held once in a lifetime, and so, people pour their hearts out for celebrating this occasion. The Assamese people enjoy the wedding in a grand manner. They observe all their traditional Assamese rituals and get dressed in traditional wedding attires. The women get dressed in traditional Mekhla bedecked with gold and silver threads. Mekhla is usually created on Muga silk. Muga silk serves as the base material for Mekhla Chadar. It is a remarkable ensemble like a sari, but this is not exactly a sari. Mekhla consists of two or three pieces of clothing, whereas a sari is made with a single piece.

The Assamese bride wears one half of the Mekhla as a skirt or petticoat and the other half as Chadar, which is similar to the anchal of the sari. In addition, the brides also wear blouses below the Chadar to complete the wedding outfit. The skirt of the Mekhla is decorated with a broad border and is thick in its texture. On the other hand the Anchal is light-weighted and is very easy to handle. Therefore the bridal Mekhla of an Assamese bride is a typical combination of Aanchal and Lungi. The Assamese brides opt for wedding Mekhlas of varied traditional colors like red, yellow, blue, green, etc. They also go for several contrast creations of mixed colors such as greenish blue, pinkish red and other charming colors.

Apart from the traditional Mekhlas, the Assamese people also wear Silk Sarees on their wedding. They choose from a wide range of silk Sarees available in the market that comprise of Uppada Silk saree, Maheswari Silk, Pure Banarasi Silk saree, Designer Brocade Silk, Baluchari Silk, Kanchivaram Silk, Tissue Chanderi Silk Saree and lots more.

The attire of an Assamese bride is never complete without jewelry. They wear gold jewelry of various novel designs along with their traditional ones. Jun Biri is one such traditional Assamese jewelry that is entirely made by hand. It is half-moon like in shape. This jewelry is inspired by nature, musical instruments and other Assamese household goods. The main frame of the jewelry is made with silver and covered with thin gold foils.
