Indian weddings are a billion-dollar industry, and this isn’t even an exaggerated number. The sheer amount of traditions, outfits, events, trousseau and gifts have made the Indian wedding a phenomenon worth experiencing. It is a matter of great pride that we, as Indians, get to experience these beautiful events in our lives. The purity, auspiciousness and love embedded in each of the events are simply beautiful and exuberant.
The Indian wedding has three main events: the haldi, a function where the bride and groom have applied a brightening and illuminating lepam of haldi. This is an auspicious event and filled with fun and frolic. The second event is the Mehendi, wherein the bride applies the auspicious paste of crushed henna leaves on her hands, posing and twirling for the photographs. The final event is the pheras, the night when the girl and boy come together in one married union. While there are other events too, such as pooja, Roka, bidaai and receptions, it’s Mehendi that always takes the cake. It’s truly an event where all the family members get together and adorn themselves with the beauty of intricate Mehendi patterns.
However, a perfect Mehendi is one where we get decked up in the best of outfits and bedazzle the world. So, whether you are a bridesmaid or the bride herself, the following mehendi outfits make for the perfect Mehendi dress. Let’s check them out:
