11 Pretty Ways To Decorate Where The Bride Sits on Her Mehendi (that are not just jhoolas!)

Nidhi Chaudhary, 22 Feb 2017


Your mehendi design is picked. You know what you’re wearing. You have made DIY origami birds to hang at the entrance! But have you figured out what the backdrop is for the area you’re sitting in to get your mehendi applied?

Don’t make the mistake of the bride sitting on a boring sofa or chair waiting for her mehendi to dry.  It needs to look pretty as well because you’re getting most of your photos clicked there! Whether it’s a jhoola decorated with marigold flowers (although, we have even better ideas in this post!) or the cushions that will support your arms and back - everything needs to look picture-perfect. And don’t forget the backdrop!

That’s a lot of things to keep in mind, haan? Don’t worry, we’ve got 11 super pretty Mehendi set up ideas from real weddings for you to pick from!

Tip: The bride is going to be sitting for hours (5-6 hours). So, not just pretty will do, make sure the sitting arrangement is comfortable enough (with pretty cushions, mattresses to provide long sitting hours support for the back and the arms of the bride)
