As important the songs and dances are, so is the bride’s mehndi ka jorhaa. Period. Your mehndi night is the most colorful function of all and it is one event where you can really afford to experiment with the outfit. From new silhouettes to even keeping the color yellow off the list, it is all possible. Check out these 6 ensembles to inspire you for your mehndi and they are sure to make you stand out and look like the showstopper that you already are, girl!
1. Go green
A green that beautiful, to a plain choli with sleeves to make a statement, and of course the colorfully printed lehnga with embroideries all over. And in case you miss out on the gorgeous dupatta, it is good enough to make you the most traditional mehndi bride ever. Only Ali Xeeshan can create such stunning masterpieces. This very outfit is from his latest De mariée collection.
2. White, who knew?
White on a mehndi? No way. Too dull. Until we saw this droolworthy Nomi Ansari lehnga choli. A tribute to color and festivity, this outfit named “Flora” is a mehndi must-have. The floral multicolored lehnga has our heart and you should too by now.
3. Gharara for a change
Too much of lehnga choli these days. But if you’re looking for something else, go for a gharara. And for this very reason we’re in love with this Umsha by Uzma Babar ensemble. The pink and burnt orange give it a modern touch and this is definitely something for today’s mehndi bride.
4. The good old days
Nimrah Khokar brings back the old days. The almost forgotten angharka paired with a gharara in the tones of carrot red and bottle green is like going back to the Mughal era. And if you’re the bride-to-be who wants that vintage look with modern-day colors, this outfit is for you.
5. The pastel way
You have to be spot-on with your color selection. That’s the rule for the mehndi outfit for sure. An unnis-bees shouldn’t be an option. Check out this gorgeous Élan outfit which takes blush pink to the next level. The peplum paired with plain lowers of any kind, and only a bit of embroidery, will make you stand out for sure. This one’s for dulhans who do not wish to go for bright colors.
6. Colors, fabrics, motifs
That’s what the mehndi function is about, right? A wide range of colors, fabrics and motifs. The House of Kamiar Rokni shows us how to get all the three together, and right. The art here is to let each color, each fabric, and each motif speak on its own. And by looking at this number, you must have realized that everything is so well blended that nothing looks too much or overdone.
