The mehendi ceremony marks the beginning of the wedding functions. This is the time when the hands and feet of the bride are decorated with beautiful henna designs. It is one of the most rejoiced pre-wedding celebrations as it involves dancing, music and a lot of entertainment.
Dressing up correctly for this special occasion is very important for the bride as she would be the centre of attraction throughout the function. Begin by keeping your theme in mind when thinking about your outfit. Usually mehendi functions are very lively with bright décor hence your outfit must be such that it stands out but is yet subtle and brings out the best in you. The most preferred colours are orange, yellow, hot pink and green. Red is usually avoided as most traditional wedding lehengas are red or deep maroon.
A simple and elegant ghagra with light gotta, mirror or dapka embroidery is recommended. Another option would be pairing a rather plain ghagra choli with a heavily embroidered dupatta. One thing which is very important while choosing the outfit is that, it must be comfortable as you will have to sit in one position at a stretch for a minimum of three to four hours. Also a ghagra choli, especially a mid length one, is a better option as compared to salwar kameez as it would be easier to apply henna on the feet.
Flower Jewellery for Mehendi Ceremony
Most brides adorn fresh flowers instead of jewellery for the mehendi ceremony. Floral rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces and floral hairdos make the bride-to-be look fresh and vibrant.
