Morning lovelies! Here are some ideas that will make your mehendi and sangeet one that will be remembered forever…
EXPERIMENT WITH BOLD AND WARM COLOURS
An Indian Sangeet is so much fun. Family and friends will dance, sing and celebrate the start of your wedding festivities. Since the environment is homely and casual; brightly coloured fabric will not only give the event an exotic and festive flair but also add warmth and intimacy.
An easy and cheap way of transforming the space for your Mehendi or Sangeet is by bringing in bold and fun colours such as fuchsia pink, lime green, yellow, blood orange and red. Using such colour palettes will also make your venue cosy and welcoming for your guests. For more drama and a solid colour scheme you can match the table and chair runners with the colour of the drapery. If you have gaddas as a part of your seating arrangement, throw in some brightly coloured tiny pillows as well.
Lately, we have also used neon as a colour palette for many mehendi and sangeet functions. Neon is fun, funky and oh so chic!!! Opt for fluorescent pink or neon green for the ultimate wow factor.
HAVE FUN WITH TRADITIONAL ACCENTS AND ACCESSORIES
Highlight the space with easily available and fun accents. You can use pinwheels, colourful pots, kaleeras (Punjabi wedding kaliras), temple bells, traditional rajasthani puppets , lanterns and even colourful diyas.
USE TRADITIONAL FLOWERS LIKE MARIGOLD, GERBERAS AND JASMINE
Traditional flowers are easily available and much cheaper than using western flowers. You can use marigold for a bright orange effect. The space will look cheerful and colourful as well as traditional and ethnic. Such a pleasing combination!
RANGOLI AND TRADITIONAL URLI
Rangoli and Traditional Urli can be used to create a dramatic entrance. Rangoli can be made with flowers or by using powdered colours.
RESERVE A COLOUR CODE FOR THE BRIDAL PARTY
Add loads of drama to your festivity with this simple idea. Ask your bridal party to dress in yellow for the Haldi or Green for the Mehendi! Or any other colour you love!!! The photos will look stunning!
