One of the most exciting wedding ceremonies for the bride is without a doubt, the mehendi ceremony. Earlier the traditions of mehendi ceremony were that the women of the house would sit and sing songs while the blushing bride wearing an old outfit would sit patiently getting her mehendi done. However, today the traditions have changed. This ceremony holds a great significance in the Indian culture as mehendi is the sign of married woman and as we have heard many say the darker the color of the mehendi the more love she would get from her husband.
We have out together a list of great outfits you can wear while getting your mehendi done:
This is a new trend but is fast catching with the brides today. It’s just like any other lehenga you have worn in the past with one little change i.e. the length of the skirt is just above the knee as it gives the bride relief from holding on to a heavy lehenga while walking.
Crop-Top & Skirt-
A crop-top with a skirt is a really fun outfit to be worn at your mehendi. This new age silhouette is worn without a dupatta making your outfit look super contemporary. This is the most perfect outfit for the bride to wear at her mehendi.
Indo- western Anarkali-
Wear your Anarkali suit with an embellished cape or a jacket and a belt at your waist to give structure to your body. The belt will also make you look slimmer. The best thing about this style of anarkali is that you don’t necessarily have to wear a dupatta. Wear a dupatta or don’t wear a dupatta, it’s totally your choice.
Go Multi color-
Mehendi is a very colorful event in the Indian wedding ceremonies. You can opt for a multi colored light lehenga in contrasting colors to keep in tune with the bright and fun spirit of the function.
Lehenga with a Slit-
This trend is seen on many brides now. If you are having a winter wedding, you can opt for a heavy embellished blouse and velvet or a raw silk skirt in bright colors. Make sure your legs are in great shape before you opt for this style.
A dhoti saree sounds like a perfect outfit for the bride to wear on her mehendi. This is a very low maintenance dress. Give this dress an Indian touch with the dress in a banarsi material or may be brocade material. You can even opt for bold colors like orange and yellow and accessories with kundan jewelry or a maan tikka and lots of colorful bangles!
A straight kurta with a skirt-
If you are someone who doesn’t like experimenting with their style then this is the perfect option for you. Opt for a brocade kurta with plazzaos or skirts and accessorize with well with a big jhumar or a maag tikka. You will look nothing less than a princess.
