Well, here are some ethereal choices for maang teekas worn by the following Bollywood actresses at their real-life weddings. Hope, they will be able to help you decide the right maang teeka for your wedding day.
Shilpa Shetty gave onlookers a glimpse of the enormous rock which her fiance Raj Kundra gave her to officiate their relationship. So, when it was her wedding, her fans and the wedding guests were bound to expect some over-the-top bridal jewellery as well. And, she did not disappoint anyone at all.

This actress's dressing sense has always been simple and beautiful. And, this motto of hers was completely visible in the choice of her maang teeka at her wedding.

It is the perfect choice for any bride who wants to keep her look understated yet, beautiful.
Kareena Kapoor got married to the chote Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan, in her mother-in-law's (Sharmila Tagore's) bridal dress, an orange sharara.
