Seating Ideas and Inspiration

Mehndi seating has really caught up in recent times- the bridal seat or the couple seat looks really special, with or without a backdrop, and it does lend a special touch to the photos, especially when the ceremony is happening at home. If you're looking for seating decoration for mehndi, then here goes!
