Brides, it is time to get over Phulkari Dupattas! No no, we are not saying that they are a passe now! But it is time to slip into the upgraded version of the Phulkaris, i.e. the Phulkari Lehengas. And kudos to the real bride Shobha for putting forth this fresh trend on the table! 

Haven't we all just loved the ever-so-vibrant and traditional Phulkari dupattas? The traditional craft from Punjab has always been a rage among girls, especially in the form of dupattas. But ever since we saw Shobha's mehndi look, we feel that Phulkari Dupattas are more relevant for bridesmaids whereas the brides must pay attention to the oh-so-stunning Phulkari lehengas instead. One look at her mehndi lehenga and you would be smitten too, we promise. And oh, how much we love the way Dipak Studio captured the zestful mehndi ceremony!

Shobha's Vibrant Poolside Mehendi in a Phulkari Lehenga

Meet Shobha, a Delhi bride who is a fashion designer herself and has set a new trend for a perfect mehndi look. She had a poolside mehndi ceremony at the Hotel Seven Seas, Rohini which was truly a peppy affair. Colourful tassel decorations lent the quintessential mehndi ceremonies. And of course, her lehenga was also in itself a beauteous storm of colours. 

The designer bride chose a full Phulkari skirt and teamed it up with a magenta blouse and a simplistic yellow dupatta. A naturally flushed makeup and half-tie tresses rounded off her lovely mehndi look. That's not all–grooms can also seek some inspo from Shobha's dapper groom who clad himself in a voguish pleated kurta set with a printed blazer. And her floral dupatta made of fresh flowers is another element worth eyeing!
