A bride doesn’t just want to look perfect on her wedding day, but also on the ceremonies that take place before that, such as haldi, sangeet and mehndi. The idea is to shine brighter than everyone while wearing something comfortable and according to the occasion.
When it particularly comes to mehndi ceremony, you want to sport something that doesn’t ruin your shagun ki mehndi while walking, dancing or doing any other activity for that matter. Therefore, it is best to go with something short, instead of a full-size lehenga that can make you uncomfortable.
Nowadays, knee-length lehengas or short lehengas have been trending a lot among brides. Even a few celebrities and fashionistas were seen exuding glamour on their mehndi ceremonies in short lehengas. If you are looking for some trending pieces, check out some of these options!
