BRIDE WITH KOBBARI BONDAM
Kobbari bondam is an important aspect of the pelli samagri as part of telugu weddings. It is considered so important that there are hundreds of designer kobbari bondam in the market. It is an intricately decorated whole coconut carried by the bride as part of the rituals.
The kobbari bondam or decorated coconut, carried by the bride, is also called sriphal.
Telugu weddings are colourful events composed of many different services and rites such as this. True to custom, the bride carries betel leaves, areca nuts, a coconut or the kobbari bondam, a sandalwood stick and finally, a red pumpkin.
Here are a few photos of the bride with her kobbari bondam.
