My Wedding Day 1 Mehendi

 Hey Girls, I am back!

I apologize for the long absence from the blog but sometimes life happens .... I have been busy with moving to Dallas. I have now started my MBA here at UT Dallas. Also I had my honeymoon at Florida...yay!!! A lot of information for one post ..right??  So I swear i'll be active on the blog now and will be sharing a lot of interesting stuff starting with the long awaited posts of my wedding.

So wedding day 1 was mehendi. I am one of those people who have a very short attention span and cant just sit at one place for more than 10 minutes, so I had a really hard time sitting at one place for hours... other than that I had a lot of fun. I had decided that i will not be putting on a really elaborate design with figures and faces that takes like the whole day... as I feel that the details do not show up as much after the mehendi falls off and plus its so tiring. So I went for a simpler design that looked clean even after drying.

Mehendi was a small function that took place at my home. I just had my relatives and close friends who made the event so much fun and unforgettable.


The best part of the mehendi, I felt was the feet. Even though I always feel my feet are ...umm how do i put it "not pretty" the mehendi wali did a great a job at it.

One thing I was really excited about was the pictures :D :D. The photographer did a really wonderful job and I will have to write a whole other post for the wedding photography.

I wore a bright green halter neck anarkali with a floral embroidered top. I thought that the vibrant color and light weight of the dress was perfect for the event. The hair and makeup were pretty basic and were done by me.

One tip that I want to give to the brides to be is to be as relaxed as possible. I don't know if that is as doable for everyone because I have always been a very chilled out person and a lot of people told me at my wedding that they had never met a more relaxed bride.

I chilled out with my friends, posed for the photographs, chatted with the guests and moved around a lot, although that I would not advice it, as it lead to my mehendi falling off within 2 hours of applying it.

Altogether, it was one of the most memorable, happiest and anxious days of my life as I waited for my groom.... who was about to reach the next morning.

Want to know..what happened the next day ?? Stay tuned, I will post all about it next week.

Do share your comments.. I love it when you do that!
