Mehndi is an official beginning of all other wedding preparations!

A gorgeous mehndi outfit with beautiful jewelry makes a perfect attire for your mehndi ceremony. 

Indian wedding fashion trends are viral among the to-be brides and for all the right reasons. These trends keep changing, and the brides-to-be have to keep up with these styles. But don’t sweat, we are here to keep you updated and notified with these always varying trends! I’m sure after endless researching on the internet, you must have stumbled upon this blog. And don’t you worry, we’ve put together a list of the best mehndi outfits for you!

One thing that we have noticed in the recent trends is that, to look elegant, you have to play subtly. So, for your mehndi outfit, don’t go all out with embroidery or sequins; keep it sober and simple. Mehndi is one function where you can dress a little casual and be comfortable with what you are wearing. All other ceremonies involve heavy lehengas, Anarkalis, and rigid traditions, but your Mehendi can fold out to be casual and relaxed!
