Henna drawings are a traditional part of Indian marriage proceedings, but this modern bride has taken the concept up a notch. Chaitalee Patil decided not to wear a blouse on her special day and have it drawn on her chest, shoulder, and arm with henna instead. This daring decision resulted in gorgeous wedding attire and the images spread quickly throughout the internet!
The Henna Tradition Modernized
The gorgeous bride Chaitalee Patil is an Instagram freelance model and was the winner of Mrs. India Empress of Nation 2019 and Mrs. India Top Model 2019. Also a fashion influencer, Chaitalee has certainly inspired future brides to make bold and unconventional choices, as hers ended up being such a hit! The Mehndi ceremony is an ancient and honored Indian wedding tradition in which the henna paste is applied the night before the wedding, typically to the bride’s hands and arms. The paste itself is a natural product that’s associated with good luck and positive spirits. The color washes away over time which makes it perfect for temporary body art, and the application of the paste requires patience and precision. The ceremony of applying the paste is a way of wishing the bride prosperity, joy, and good health as she begins her marriage journey.
The Images Are Trending Across the Internet
On her wedding day, Chaitalee was wearing a yellow lehenga with a wide border. It was paired with green bangles and a bandhani dupatta. The matching earrings she chose are a stunning accessory. The Mehndi followed the shape of a traditional blouse and had an intricate floral pattern. Her daring choices delivered stunning results and might have inspired future brides to do the same. She upheld tradition but added her own flair to it and certainly made a statement. Will other brides decide to follow in this beauty queen’s footsteps in the future? Only time will tell!
Epic Ways to Celebrate the Big Wedding Day Even After Postponing
The world has been turned upside down over the past few months, and there’s no doubt about the fact that prospective newlyweds have found themselves in a sticky situation. However, just because you’ve had to cancel your dream day or postpone it to a later date doesn’t mean that you can’t still celebrate what would have been. You can still have fun with the love of your life, you know.
Organize A Drive-By
It can be hard to deal with the fact that you won’t see your friends and family on what was supposed to be the best day of your life, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t see them at all. One of the best ways to celebrate your postponed wedding day is to organize a drive-by, where all of your loved ones drive-by your house at a specific time to give you a wave and a honk of the horn.
Indulge In Your Wedding Cake
It can be easy to cancel everything when you realize that your big day will no longer be going ahead when you planned, but why not keep something in the mix? Instead of canceling your wedding cake, have it delivered to your home so you can indulge in the different layers and the beautiful decoration, and eat your feelings at the same time.
Plan Your Honeymoon
Just because you have also had to postpone your honeymoon doesn’t mean that you also have to postpone the next planning process. While there are travel restrictions across the globe at the moment, there are also some seriously cheap deals. So, why not plan your honeymoon for next year and feel the excitement burning up once again?
If you’ve had to postpone your wedding due to the ongoing pandemic, then you’re probably pretty upset. That doesn’t mean that you have to mope around, though. Celebrate your wedding day in style, even if you can’t get hitched.
