Wedding Diaries : Mehandi Look

Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life , love gives us a fairy tale. And it is every girl’s dream to look like a princess of this fairy tale in all her wedding functions. Also, the wedding dresses must reflect the personality and style of the bride.

Mehandi adorns the hands and life takes on a new colour. Gone are the days when Mehandi was just another household affair, it is a full fledged event in the wedding. Brides are going all out to get the perfect outfit and jewellery for their Mehandi look. Floral jewellery, Gota pati or silk thread jewellery…There are so many options to choose from for the Mehandi day. 

Fun Fact – In some parts of our country, it is believed that the richness in Mehandi colour shows how deep the love or the bond that the couple will share. In other parts, it is believed that the colour defines the relationship of the bride with her mother-in-law 😊

I was super excited to adorn my hands with beautiful henna, also I wanted my outfit to be comfortable given the amount of time it takes for the Mehandi to be applied. 
I opted for a hand-embroidered Lehenga bought from Katha store, Rcity Mall, Mumbai. Since both my wedding and reception dresses were work-heavy, i wanted the mehandi look to be dainty and easy-breezy. The lehenga was super affordable and costed  3000 Rupees. The original Lehenga had a three-fourth sleeve blouse so I bought a separate short sleeves kurti from Shoppers Stopwhich costed 600 bucks. As it was an afternoon affair, I kept the makeup minimal and opted for some light floral jewellery.

Here are the pictures, Do share what do you think about the look .
