5 Amazing Ethnic Wear Styles To Wear On A Mehndi Function


A wedding in India is a whole different world in itself. So many ceremonies from Sangeet to Mehndi to engagement, so many rituals such vibrant colors that you get to see. Every girl dreams of her wedding day and she wants everything to be perfect from the dress to the decorations and almost every single thing. Well, when it comes to deciding upon the perfect dresses for all the functions including the wedding, nothing in the world is as confusing as that.

Well, same was the case with my friend. She called me yesterday and was in hysterics. She was babbling about not having enough time to find a dress or get ready. Well, she was partly worried partly excited. How could she not be? It was her big day. She was getting married and her mehndi function was only after two days. And she still hasn’t got a dress to wear. So, she called her so-called designer friend (I am not a designer just have a good fashion sense) that’s me and barged me about the latest ethnic wear options to wear at her mehndi function. Let’s look at some interesting options we explored in the category of online ethnic wear collection and considered for her mehndi function.

  1. Capes

Capes are one of the most popular trends in the market right now. Capes might seem like a strange thing to wear on a mehndi function but they really do look great and unique to be worn on a mehndi function. Capes can be paired with a lehenga, a dhoti pant, a churidar (with a long cape), a palazzo and a gown.

  1. Dhoti Pants

What used to be an element of traditional attire has also made its way in the bridal wear collection. This attire has both the traditional as well as the modern element and can be paired with a kurta or with a peplum & crop top or a jacket or a cape.

  1. Dhoti Saris & Pant Saris

Sound intriguing, right? A dhoti with a sari! Well, this is a really uncommon look to wear for a mehndi function. What I love about this look is the combination of the sari and dhoti, it’s indeed refreshing.

  1. Crop Tops & Skirts

Well, this is another trendy look one can consider for her mehndi function. A long skirt with a crop top will give you a classy as well as a chic look. You can either go for a plain crop top and a skirt embellished with intricate work or vice versa.

  1. Long Kurtas and Lehengas

Well, this is one of the classiest looks one can choose to wear on a mehndi function. This look definitely has a royal touch to it. Find some great color combination of both the kurtas and the lehenga and paired with some great jewelry.
