Top Colour Choices for Mehndi Outfits For Brides-To-Be

New clothes, new jewellery, new makeup – of course us girls will be excited. Whilst the pressure of finding the ‘right’ outfit is on, the excitement of choosing the outfit is overpowering! The race to look for the best colour for your mehndi day begins and often results in all your mobile battery life going in search for it. But worry not, because here we bring to you some colour ideas for your outfit that will inspire you to decide on yours.


Our first pick is the colour yellow; a bright, bold colour, reflecting freshness and happiness. This is perfect to enhance all brides positivity. Although yellow is traditional for the haldi ceremony, it is not imperative to remain for just that, it can be worn to the mehndi ceremony. The outfits preferred for the ceremony are usually simple, soft colours and not too flashy, so perhaps a light yellow may be preferred.

Our next pick is the colour green; a colour which symbolises faith, freedom, prosperity and youth. Faith creates the stage for a harmonious life between the couple. So why not wear a green dress with a mix of magenta and yellow for your mehndi, and perhaps top it with a bit of floral jewellery.

An alternative colour is red; a colour which represents the symbol of love, passion and romanticism. It indicates determination and passion, so ladies if you’re feeling a little fiery, why not go for a splash of red in your mendhi outfit, perhaps a red dress or salwaar kameez. Remember that the mendhi is a day before your wedding day, so perhaps opt for a light red to avoid overdoing it or alternatively opt for a softer colour with red embroidery.

Another gorgeous colour that can be worn is the colour orange: signifying joy and creativity. So, ladies if you would like to a have some fun with your mehndi outfit, perhaps opt for a soft orange colour or alternatively, an outfit with a splash of orange decoration. It radiates happiness, which is perfect for celebrations before your big day!
