"AADI PERUKKU" ,tamil month "ADI" 18th day is the very opt day to get the holy turmeric water" dipped thread changed. but in normal course of time from new moon starts( moon growing preiod) to full moon day any wednesday excluding first, eighth,nineth ( prathamai, ashtami,navami) thithi. plus avoid the nakshakthras of aiyalyam,moolam, pooradam .\avoid kari naal, keel nooku naal, refer panchakam to know the thithi,nakshatra,kari naal, keel nooku naal .chank lalitha sahasranam or lalitha navarathna malai of agastyar while preparing turmaric sacred thread. you shoudl wear it before noon . (because sun will start to get down from 12.oo pm)

Dear Jyotsna,

It depends on the groom's family. Each family got different style of mangalasutra. You have mentioned that you are a brahmin. In South Indian Brahmins, there are different sub sects are there. Take 1. Smartha, Madhwa and Sri Vaishnava. Again in these also there are different subsects. Take in Smartha, Vaidika, Velanadu, Prathama Sakha, Niyogi, Aaruvela Niyogi. Like the same in Sri Vaishnavas also there are different subsects are there. Tengalai, Vadagalai, Vaikhanasa, Hebbaar Ayangar etc.,

Without knowing all these details, it is difficult to tell the details. In case if you want just to wear a mangala sutra, please visit any jewellery site online and have a model.

With His blessings,
