The best thing about Indian weddings is the number of different fun occasions that lead up to the wedding, which gives women the ability to have fun playing dress-up.
One of the most fun and casual, laid back yet fun events is the mehendi ceremony, which is essentially the day the bride and the female members of the wedding party put henna in their hands and pick out bangles and other goodies for themselves.
The mehendi ceremony is usually one of the more intimate ceremonies in comparison to the sangeet, wedding or reception; however this in no way means that one is any less dressed up. In fact, since the theme of the mehendi is usually fun, colorful and vibrant, and is usually an outdoor garden party of sorts, one can wear bright colors and pastels or florals, which would otherwise be a bit underwhelming for the grander functions of the Big Fat Indian Wedding.
One of the best designers who makes the most beautiful clothes that are fit for a mehendi are Varun Bahl's designs. His trademark grand florals speak for themselves, and are sure to make you look like the belle of the ball!
This trouser with floral top is a contemporary take on the traditional mehendi outfit.

Simple and elegant.
This rather simple lehenga is accentuated by exquisite embroidery.
Why should the men be left behind, and who said men can't wear florals.
