10+ Offbeat Mehendi Designs We Spotted On Real Brides!
You are a modern day bride & your mehendi design should put across the same message, shouldn’t it? So we went through a LOT of mehendi pics to see if brides are opting for something more creative & unique these days and the results were pleasantly surprising!
More and more brides are now blending traditional designs with quirky, contemporary elements, bringing out the cool side of them in their henna designs! There were a few who opted for totally offbeat mehendi patterns that are different, gorgeous and perfect for a modern 2018 bride!
From classic to unusual, let’s take a look at some real brides who gave us major #MehendiDesignGoals:
1. Including your proposal in your mehendi design:
London Eye and London Bridge hold a very special place in Masoom Minawala's heart as that's the place where Shailin, her now-husband, proposed to her, and she incorporated the same in her mehendi!

The design is pretty close to reality, isn’t it?
3. Wearing your mehendi as jewellry:
This is such a cool way of wearing jewellery - get your mehendi in the design of a bracelet or an anklet. It might also mean completely doing away with real jewellery so as to not overshadow these striking patterns.

6. Minimalistic Designs:
Sometimes less is more and these minimalistic henna designs completely prove so! These designs are nothing more than delicate tattoos on fingers, a single vine at the back of the hand or elegant swirls around their wrists but definitely make a sight for sore eyes!
7. Checks and balances:
Checkered design has been in trend for quite sometime now and they still make for a great henna design! You can balance out your intricate and complex mehendi pattern with a simple checkered design to make it really eye catching!

8. Keeping the hashtag game strong:
It’s a very popular yet age old tradition of hiding the groom’s name inside the intricate mehendi pattern. This trend being a little jaded right now, you can also opt for including your wedding hashtag in your mehendi design.
9. Vintage rose patterns:
Well rose patterns are not really in trend now, but these designs were sooo pretty that we just wanted to include them in our list! :D
10. The baand baaja baraat scene:
This bride's unique Mehendi design has her entire baraat and doli scene making it look totally awesome!
11. The sole affair:
Getting the henna design done on your feet is just so passe. These brides decided to have the mehendi design done on the sole of their feet and the results are just ah-mazing!
