A DIY Mehendi in Mumbai from start to finish

BY The WMG Bride | 27 Mar, 2015 | 1797 views | 2 min read

Everything in this adorable mehendi at home has been DIY'ed by the bride and her sister. Right from the outfit where she picked up fabrics and gave it to a local tailor, to the backdrop behind the bride's chair with paper fans and all the cute detailing around the house; the wishing tree, the advice cards, and all the fun shoutouts- This colorful mehendi is proof of the fact that all it needs to create a memorable affair is a bit of extra effort and a lot  of friends to help you out.

We have been always creating  backdrops every year for Ganpati festival at my place.So, we decided to not hire anyone for mehendi and eventually got the decor done ourselves,  in our backyard. We use colored paper fans to create a backdrop for the chair where I sat, and we added a few details around the area. A chalkboard sign which said "Wishing tree" where guests could write wishes for us. We even had an 'Advice' section where we hung cards from the trees and let our friends and family give us advice. Apart from this we printed out our own photo booth props with placards and sayings.

We always envisioned for a wedding decor start up , but its not as easy as it sounds as I have a job I cant quit (WMG Tip: Girl, you need to leave that job and start RIGHT NOW. There are n't too many affordable but classy decorators out there)  For my outfit, I gave my own design and bought a mango yellow and pista green fabric and gave it to my tailor. If you give him fabrics and designs, he executes them well :)
