41 Mehendi Outfits & Dresses To Inspire Your Own

mehendi outfits

Given the wide range of mehendi outfits on social media and designer stores, it can be a task to figure out what you want to wear at your own mehandi event. A good piece of advice is to first sort out in your mind what you want your mehendi look to be like. It can be an easy, functional ensemble in saree/ sharara/ printed lehenga and minima floral jewelry or a glamorous bedecked lehenga set paired alongside metal jewelry. Alternatively, it can be a mix of both worlds. No matter the choice though, make sure it’s comfortable. The bridal henna application requires close to 6 to 8 hours. During the application, you’d have to be stiff and even when you get up, you need to make sure the wet henna doesn’t touch anyone or anything. To ease this unavoidable situation, we’d suggest getting leg henna done the previous day. This will help with the long timing and comfort. 

From pastel lehengas to ruffle sarees and shararas, there’s all kind of mehendi dresses on this list. Scroll through for a comprehensive board selection to sift & sort the mehendi look you love the most. 

#1 Given the trend of intimate celebrations, sarees have become a go-to choice for brides for their many prominent events, including weddings. Saree mehendi outfits have also become popular. Since mehandi calls for style, ruffle concept sarees are often given a preference. Decked up in a ruffle green saree and a pair of statement earrings, there’s practicality and beauty in her mehendi look to inspire your own.

#2 Shradha Arya’s Delhi wedding created a buzz in the wedding world recently and so did her bridal looks. She opted for a yellow mehendi lehenga which was infused with shades of green and purple. When you can’t decide on the color palette, multicolor is always the way to go! Plus, a multicolor lehenga also gives you varied color options for floral jewelery designs. You can pick any color to match the attire and look on-point.

#3 Another TV actor, Aish Sharma, recently got married and wore quite a pragmatic mehendi outfit for her henna application. It was a green mehendi sharara suit with dupatta tucked well behind for fuss-free styling. She also tied her hair in a braid to not let anything come in between the comfort of hours of henna application. With just a few tendrils on the face, a contoured bridal Indian makeup looks, and a green bindi, Sharma redefined the practical mehendi look with her simple ensemble.

#8 Who said you can’t wear sky blue to the wedding? Actually, no one. But the customary colors for the mehandi outfits are yellow, green, and pastels. However, brides love experimenting, and the big day is often reserved for playing safe. It’s the mehendi dress planning when you can don your favorite color with no qualms. So, if blue is on your mind, let the color be your pick for this fun day.

#12 Ruffles are clearly the next big thing in the wedding market. They can be widely spotted on traditional wear, especially sarees, but also in lehenga dupattas and sharara pants. Bride Mansi took it a step ahead and introduced ruffles in her lehenga, blouse, and dupatta to add a glamorous effect to her otherwise simple blue lehenga set. And we also love how the mehendi outfit for the groom is also monochromatically complementing the bride.

#18 Bandhani lehengas with gota patti work are the local handlooms of Rajasthan & Gujarat. We certainly don’t need to make a case why the handloom weaves make for the elegant option in your trousseau. Besides the common banarasi, try including some bandhani weaves in your trousseau too. Better, wear one as one of your bridal outfits.
