So the Mehendi is one function when every bride should have as much fun as she can! Of course, you have to look gorgeous and easy breezy while doing that, and that's why we decided to put together some great ideas for your mehendi outfit's dupatta- alternatives and draping styles which not only look great, but are perfect to have fun on the occasion!

Alternatives to Dupattas

These are styles you can consider if you don't want the hassle of a dupatta on the Mehendi- styles that are trendy, and look very unique!

This one is a more formal way of doing the cape- and looks quite regal and elegant yet trendy at the same time!

A cold shoulder cape style perhaps?

This one involves having long sleeves that look like a cape- and a cold shoulder to make it stand out even more!

Here are some draping styles to consider for single dupattas which are perfect for the Mehendi!

This one also looks pretty classy, and is a good way to hide the waist if that's what you want!

This one involving a waistbelt

A waist belt not only looks pretty, but keeps the dupatta in place- whether you do the normal drape or the seedha pallu one!

This one which is a more structured drape

This one is a more structured drape if you're looking for the dupatta to be perfectly in place the whole time!
