Every couple has a love story, so why not have it in your bridal mehendi to make it unique and more you? Let your hands be the canvas of your beautiful love story.
Pick defining moments from your love story, it could be anything - a date that’s very special to both of you, your first dance, how you met and so on. We bet that once your bridal mehendi is done, you would be in love with it, but remember not to smudge it amidst all the excitement!
Some couples love their profession too much to part with it even for a day. Take a look at this couple’s mehendi design and you would know what we are saying. This crazy bride got various elements from their profession like the brain, heart, ECG, and neurons to indicate that this was a wedding between a cardiologist and a neurologist.
Now, you can get as creative and personal like this couple or take subtle elements to make it more appealing. Say, your husband-to-be is a pilot, then including tiny planes in your mehendi design would be a great idea. Or, if you are a software engineer you can have tiny elements of programming language. Just let your imagination run wild for a unique design.
While browsing the Internet for unique bridal mehendi designs we came across a bride who had minions drawn on the palms of her hand! Incredible, isn’t it? You would find it even more appealing after knowing the story behind this minion mehendi.
The bride and the groom i.e. Krupa and Abhi both are minion fans so the bride asked her mehendi artist, who wasn’t a professional, but a close friend of hers, to incorporate them in her mehendi, dressed as a South Indian couple. Aww, we are totally in love with how this bride personalised her bridal mehendi.
Reserve a portion of your hand or arms to dedicate a verse of your favourite poem or song to the groom. It’s a perfect idea for a bride who wants subtle ways to personalize her bridal mehendi.
Choose a beautiful short verse, anything longer than two to three lines would make the mehendi look messy. You can even include a secret dialogue or words that hold meaning only for you and your partner.
Are you a bride who forgets her own wedding hashtag? Well then, you are simply going to love this mehendi design for your wedding. Just include your wedding hashtag somewhere in your mehendi design, genius isn’t it?
Sharing your wedding pictures with the right hashtag shouldn’t be too difficult now. If you want, you can even personalise it further by adding your wedding date to the mehendi.
