If you ask us, a mehendi outfit should be simple and pretty. By simple, we don’t mean an outfit which doesn’t have any work, we mean an outfit that is easy to walk around and manoeuvre in. You cannot afford to wear a heavy lehenga that needs to be lifted every time you walk or an extra-long chunni that keeps falling down – your wet mehendi hands won’t be able to manage the outfit! Secondly, a mehendi outfit needs to be pretty and impactful. After all, you’ll get some of your best candid photographs during this event. To make your life a little easier, these are some of our favourite mehendi outfits that are sure to look gorgeous on you..
