Just because you're having your Mehendi at home does not mean that it cannot look super Insta-worthy and fun. There are so many fresh new ideas that you can incorporate to make everything look a hundred times more amazing, and many of these ideas can even be DIYed to the best of your abilities. While most of these ideas come from professional planners or decorators, they are also quite practical to pull off by yourselves, or with professional help at home. And if you have a garden, then nothing like it! So go ahead, and get inspired!
Have a photobooth which doubles up as a bridal seat
If you have something like this, then you don't need a separate photobooth and bridal seat, you can combine the two into one. Get something grand set up, or something simple can also look super pretty when done right.
Make the seating for the guests special too!

Or decorate the swing at home to make it look cute!
