The theme of this Mendhi party was « vintage Indian wedding ». I didn’t have any idea of what was a modern sari or a vintage saree.  It was my first Indian weeding and I haven’t been disappointed. It was so colorful ! All those people sharing their tradition and their culture.

Each bridesmaid was dressed with a different color. The jewelery and the accessories have been chosen with a lot of taste.

 

Powerful mix of orange and violet, brightened-up with golden jewels.

By tradition, a bride has to wear a green saree because it is the islamic color .

Getting ready is an important stage for the Indian woman. The saree is wrapped by a dresser because there is a special way to wear it.
