Mehndi Artist for the Day
Not only was this star-studded mehndi function a hoot, but it was also a beautiful intimate ceremony upholding all the safety rules and regulations as the need of the hour. The veteran mehndi artist Veena Nagda was seen getting the beautiful palms decked up for the wedding bells. Veena Nagda has been the mehndi artists for many generations of Bollywood brides right from Karishma Kapoor, Farah Khan, Suzanne Khan and so on. She is much loved by the tinsel town brides and it is no secret why!
Who She Wore
Mehndi ceremonies are almost always long and a tad bit uncomfortable owing to the fact that you will have to be seated in one place for long hours. To keep it stylish yet simple, Nidhi Dutta was seen in a peach asymmetrical kurta with Gota Patti and sequin embroidery. Paired with simple dhoti pants, this set is a bliss from the house of Vvani by Vani Vats.
The georgette kurta makes it perfect for the summers in Bombay and the knife pleat hem just makes it stand out. The groom, on the other hand, was seen in a dapper Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla outfit.
The decor for Nidhi Dutta's mehndi was brought into life straight from her fairytale mehndi ceremony by Blushing Bells. Keeping the decor vivacious yet blushy and adorable and cascading some love and happiness to the mehndi ceremony, the decor was just perfect for some new beginnings. While mehndi is always known for colours that pop out, this pastel themed mehndi is a charmer.
The Mehndi Design
The intricate mehndi design seen on the bride-to-be's hands were a mixture of Arabic mehndi designs and traditional mehndi designs. The dome-shaped designs with the lotus in between are typical of an Arabic Mehndi design and the figure of Lord Ganpati gives it the essential traditional Indian touch.
