Haldi Dress For the Bride
The bride is the undisputed showstopper of the wedding saga. More than the groom, it’s the bride who has every guest’s attention. So while picking a lehenga for Haldi (you could pick a suit too, but going by the trends these days, we highly recommend you pick a lehenga), make sure it is pretty, elegant yet not too much over the top.
While accessorising the look for the bride, we’d recommend to not go with gold or diamond jewellery at all. The primary reason being, the haldi applied will get terribly stuck in it and the secondary being that it’s just not the raging trend these days for a haldi function! Instead, go with some basic floral jewellery.
Many people prefer customising their haldi ceremony floral jewellery in real flowers- and we have to admit, it does look like a scene straight from the fairy tale!
Preparing the Haldi paste: Here’s a quick tip- add a few dried petals of roses to your haldi paste. You could either just crush and mix them in the paste or could buy ground rose petal powder and add it. This will enhance the glow on the face of the bride and the groom and will also feel very cooling to the skin!
These days, more and more people opt to hold a combined haldi ceremony for the bride and the groom. This way, both the families are spared the hassle of organising separate functions and together is so much better, no?
Make the Function Quirky!
You can always add some fun elements to this traditional ceremony. Keep the décor in sync with haldi ceremony- floral decoration will go the best along with yellow backdrop.
You can make the function all the more enjoyable by organising a hald holi function- where not just the bride and the groom but all the guests in attendance also play with the haldi paste.
You can make a dreamy entry of the bride and groom by arranging for flower rains- it looks really magnificent and you also don’t need to spend a bomb. Plus they make for a mesmerising photo shoot!
Make customized badges and placards- they will absolutely make the function go rocking and will also have the guests and families from both the sides bonding real well!!
And for all you lovely friends of the bride, the bridesmaids and the sister of the bride- we have some lovely haldi outfits for you too.
And this lovely kurta for the groom for haldi!
