This Bride DIY-ed Her Entry Chaadar & Lehenga With Hand-Painted Promises & Family Wishes

BY Anupriya | 01 Jun, 2022 | 1 view | 2 min read

If you’re the kind of bride who wants to go all-in on the trend of including personalised details in her wedding, this blog will be right up your alley! While we have seen quite a few brides customise their lehengas with initials and go high on personalisations with their wedding decorations, here’s one who took it a notch up by not just DIY-ing her mehendi outfit but her bridal chaadar as well.

Meet Nidhi Dokania, the proud co-founder of Womenaura, who hand-letters and creates personalised gifting options & wedding favours for a living. So when it was her time to be the bride, she didn’t let her creative instincts go to waste. Firstly, she steered clear of the usual phoolon ki chaadar and DIY-ed one with ghungroos and laces and hand-painted it with her personalised promises to self. Additionally, she also got her family to pen down wishes for her on it.

Sounds interesting? Watch this BTS video to get a glimpse into the entire making process and her idea behind it.

Spilling the beans about designing her Mehendi outfit, she shared, “Right before my wedding functions were about to start, I was tested positive, and everything seemed to fall apart. We first had to move the venue from a different city to our own, and then postpone the dates. Everything seemed to be not the way it was supposed to be and to keep myself sane while I was quarantined, I decided to paint the outfit for my Mehendi.

First designed it digitally before I could move to the fabric. I painted little memories of us (me and @its.insidemyhead )on it starting from school, to the long-distance and everything else. The 7 days went by and it started feeling right. I was overwhelmed to see how it turned out to be.
Don't forget to spot my groom groove on a bandi that I painted for him as well.”
