Ditch the Lehenga for these Chic Mehendi Outfit Ideas | #TSDBridalDiary

Friday 20 April 2018

Hey everyone!
I am really glad that you all enjoyed reading my last post from my bridal diary, and thanks for motivating me to write more in the series.
When I had to decide upon an outfit for my Mehendi function, all I could find online and in stores was a variety of lehengas that I really didn't want to pick as I had already decided upon my wedding lehenga and just didn't want another lehenga that I would keep lying in my closet and I would hardly ever wear again.

That's when I explored a few more options and decided to get an outfit customised that would not only suit the occasion but I would also be able to wear later.

And if you are also wondering about what would be an ideal outfit for a mehendi function which is not a lehenga, here are a few ideas that you can explore :

Hi-low hem dress by Anushree Agarwal
A hi-low hem dress like this teal green one is a perfect pick for mehendi function especially if you are throwing a pool party or having a summer wedding. You can get one customised as per the theme of the function or any colour and design you desire. 
The best part is it can be styled with a pair of leggings later for an ethnic look. 

Off-shoulder top and Dhoti Pants - Prathyusha Garimella
This is one of my favourite outfits I spotted online this summer, an off-shoulder top with intricate embroidery and dhoti pants is a perfect pair for the modern bride who wants to keep it casual yet classy for the mehendi function.
While this is an all-black option, you can choose bright colours especially in contrast and skip the off-shoulder top for a more ethnic style like this stunning asymmetric kurta by Anju Modi.

Shilpa Shetty and Kishwer Merchant sure gave a lot of brides outfit-inspiration for their Mehendi functions when they were spotted wearing this cool dhoti skirt and off-shoulder top. The difference in the skirt is the way the drapes are done, and you can also choose a drape that suits your body type best.
I personally liked Masaba's design better as the skirt is way more structured and fits Shilpa Shetty really nicely. Your beautiful floral/gota patti jewellery would also go best with this outfit as it has an Indo-western appeal.

Inspired by this skirt style, I also got my mehendi outfit customised paired with an embroidered jacket blouse instead - to add more colour to the outfit. I will be sharing more images of my outfit in the next post.

Another outfit option that you can pick for your mehendi function instead of a lehenga is a short skirt paired with either a classy shirt or a blouse; just like this Manish Arora skirt worn by Sonam Kapoor.

Drape saree by Pernia Qureshi

How about getting a pre-stitched drape saree and wear it without the in-skirt for a contemporary look? Flaunt it with a contrasting blouse, a messy bun and ethnic jewellery to be the star of your mehendi function.

So, what's your pick when it comes to choosing an outfit for your Mehendi function? Would love to know your views in comments below!
