We are also seeing a lot of brides experiment with Portrait Mehendi Designs. Whether you get your own pictures drawn on your hands, or your parents', or even your dogs, they are all over Instagram!
Another trend we are noticing (personally, this one's my favorite) is that of Caricature Mehendi Designs. When we first came across this bride who got Simpsons Characters in her mehendi , all we could say was- "WOW!". From Minions to Shinchan and even logo of the to-be-husband's favorite football team, brides are experimenting with a variety of themes in their mehendi designs!
Apart from these, we also saw brides get their favorite food items drawn in their mehendi because DUH! It's about keeping your priorities right, isnt it?
The team at Aksha Shah Mehendi Designer believes skyline designs have been one of the biggest trends throughout 2018! Looking at these pictures, we know why! Don't they look stunning and so unique!
Just when you thought that it's, wait! We've got more! Shalini Mehendi Artist believes minimal mehendi designs are fast catching up with more and more brides wanting to go for these fuss-free designs. Know a bride-to-be who's not the biggest fan of mehendi? Well this one's sure for them!

How Can You Customize Your Bridal Mehendi?
Every mehendi artist we spoke with agreed that bridal mehendi customization is never a problem! You can always sit with them ahead of your functions to discuss what all you can include in your design.
Some mehendi artists like Raju Mehendi Artist GK believe sharing a design with them 10 in advance helps the mehendi artists prepare for it with precision so it looks exactly like the original. They can then even share a rough draft with you once their team has practiced the design you wish to include! WOW, now that's some commitment!

Does Mehendi Customization Cost Extra?
Yes. Since customized mehendi designs involve the artists to practice your chosen designs, they tend to cost a tad bit extra. Prices go up depending upon how intricate your chosen design is.
Can You Book The Same Mehendi Artist For Your Family As The Bride's?
Yes, why not! Mehendi artists ideally come in a team of 5 or more members who can cater to both the bride and her bridal party. While you can be sure your bride will be getting complete attention when getting her mehendi done, even your friends and family will not be left behind. Aksha Shah Mehendi Designer believes that's the USP of her team. While basic packages for their bridal party bookings start from Rs 200 per person, you can avail packages that range from Rs 250-300 per person that guarantee that every member of your bridal party gets a unique design, without any repetition!
PLEASE NOTE - this amount is for Mumbai brides only.
Be Aware Of Extra Expenses You Might Have To Bear
If you're having a destination wedding, and you aren't booking local vendors, be prepared to bear conveyance and accommodation expenses.
