Traditional Pakistani Mehndi with a Twist

I love traditional Pakistani Mehndis!  They are so fun and have an incredible amount of color, singing and dancing. My personal take is not to spend a ridiculous amount of money on my Mehndi because I’d rather it be budgeted towards the wedding, to have a spectacular wedding because that’s the best part of the events.  But, I can always dream!  I made this cute little inspiration board on Project Wedding, and thought I’d share ideas for a fancy, colorful and traditional Pakistani Mehndi:

I remember going to Mehndis in Karachi when I was younger.  They would close off streets with bright tents, the bride’s cousins would dress in matching yellow and green outfits, and girls would be wearing glass bangles up to their elbows. I feel like I saw a ton of Dahlias and Jasmine flowers, and of course, as pictured here, the bride’s hands were covered in Henna.

I think a perfect outfit for a bride would be this Nomi Ansari peshwas, which is a traditional outfit that never goes out of style.  Nomi Ansari showed this outfit at Pakistan’s Bridal Couture Week in November 2010.

I love that it has shades of orange, yellow and bright pink on a crinkle chiffon type outfit.  Love it and I think it goes so perfectly with my traditional Mehndi dream event.

There’s a tent company called Raj Tents that rents out luxurious Moroccan and Indian style tents.  Super pricey… which is why this event will just remain a dream for now.  How fun would one of their tents be for a Mehndi though!!
