Fun Ways to add Phulkari to your Mehendi ceremony for a desi-style wedding!

 

Deeply rooted in the culture of Punjab, ‘Phulkari’ work has been grabbing eyeballs over generations. This particular style of embroidery which means ‘flower work’ is patterned on odhnis, chunris, shawls, blouses et al. This style of clothing took a backseat for quite some time, but phulkari embroidery has made a major comeback in style!

 

Although phulkari was seen extensively on dupattas and chunris, it is currently taking over other elements of the bridal ensemble- lehengas, blouses, bags and juttis. As a bride-to-be, if you are looking out on ways to add a desi touch to your mehendi ceremony, you can definitely take to phulkari. This is because mehendi is one such ceremony where you could go OTT with colourful, bright and vibrant outfits, decor and other facets.

 

Here’s me listing ways in which you could up your mehendi ceremony game:

 

1. Phulkari Dupattas

 

You could pair a plain vibrant kurta with a peppy phulkari dupatta with multicoloured large squares!
