Why A Bride Wears Wedding Chura?

As mentioned, a set of wedding Chura signifies the newly-married status of a bride. Earlier, it was mandatory for a bride to wear a set of 21 or 51 bangles. But now, the women get to choose a set they are most comfortable with wearing.

Another change that has come with time is, that traditionally the wedding Chura sets were supposed to be worn for a whole year post marriage, till the first anniversary or till the time they get pregnant (whichever happens first).

But now, the new brides are allowed to wear wedding Chura for 40 days and then gets to replace them with lighter bangles by performing a Puja ceremony for the same.
