Zainab Shabbir - Truly Covetable

This repertoire of mehendi-ready outfits is young, colourful and regal at the same time

We all know how Pakistani weddings can be taxing because of how long they lasts. Pakistani weddings mean endless rituals, countless fun moments, innumerable dishes that would never leave your taste buds unsatiated, and hours spent in decoration. One of those many functions or rituals in desi weddings is mehendi.

As Eid comes to an end, it’s the official beginning to most of the bridal events.

This definitely calls for you to plan your attire for your mehendi ceremony. With everybody’s focus on you, you’ve got to be the eye candy in the room. So, why not look like a dream while you get ready to apply henna on your palms?

As one of the first functions on the wedding itinerary, the mehendi often sets the tone for the revelry to follow. A laid-back event to get the festivities rolling, the mehendi is also the perfect event for girls to skip the expected ornate route and experiment with their ensembles instead.

 Whether you’re the bride or a friend or family, curating a winning wedding wardrobe is a mammoth task, so we don't blame you if you're in a fix over your mehendi outfit.

That said, it doesn’t matter if your taste buds tingle for modernistic fusion or vintage classics. Every pick ranging from sophisticated to edgy, we’ve got the fashion police verified for them all. Also, mehendis are license to play with stop-and-stare hues, and no shade is off limits. From subtle to neon, choose one that ties in with your personality and function theme. From showstopper lehengas to high-impact anarkalis, take inspiration from these outfits on how to be the best-dressed guest always.
