The Chambhar bride like any other bride is a thing of beauty. The bride wears traditional Hindu attire on her wedding day like any other Hindu community. The customs followed in their marriage are like the marriage customs followed by any other Hindu communities. On the engagement function or wedding day, the Chambhar brides are decorated like any other Hindu community bride and they wear glass bangles of green which I a tradition followed since long. They believe that the green bangles enthuse new life and creativity in one's monotony since the color green signifies life.
