BY Twinkle | 25 Apr, 2019 | 177399 views | 4 min read

Mehendi is all about colour, fun, music and some craziness! It signifies the start of the wedding functions, making it a very important day for the bride. While most brides have gone the traditional way of wearing a lehenga for this occasion, new-age brides are opting for offbeat styles. They’re exploring options that are fuss-free, comfortable and yet not too light for their big day. Are these points in your mehendi-outfit checklist too? Don’t worry, we have got you covered. Here are 10 outfit ideas that could serve as an inspiration for your purchase:
