There’s a global quality to mehndi that makes it great when combining cultures at a wedding. Here a traditional Jewish wedding contract, ketubah, is adorned with henna inspired design. Created by Doodlage.


Mehndi Wedding Bridal Shoes

Custom hand painted wedding shoes can also give you mehndi flair. These shoes were decorated by Love Miranda Marie.


Henna Mehndi Accessories

Incorporate table accessories into centerpieces or special items for your sweetheart table. The hand painted glass is from Mehndi Glass, and the candle is from Redwood Henna. I’ve also seen beautiful mehndi inspired plates and spoons.

Real Palettes: Teal, Fuchsia and Gold Indian Wedding

Posted by in Color Advice, Create the Look, Our Designs, Real Palettes

Indian lotus wedding program in teal, fuchsia and gold

Sometimes it takes experimentation to land on the color palette you like.

We were working on a wedding program for an Indian wedding that originally had royal blue and gold as the main colors. A two color palette works well on invitation design. But often once the reception design begins, more colors are pulled in with flowers, table linens, chair coverings and even tableware.

So the bride came back and added teal and fuchsia to the mix and it really brought the entire design alive.

I love the results, what about you? What colors would you add to your palette to fill it out?
