Inspiration: The beautiful city of Jodhpur. The bride was very clear she didn’t want the multi color, done-to-death typical mehendi. While driving from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer, we saw these stunning blue and white mud house with silver charpoys and villagers dressed in white kurtas and colorful turbans sitting on them- we instantly knew our Mehendi has to look like that!
Design Theme: Working with shades of indigo, we chose a venue which would resonate the starkness of the Rajasthani desert. The area we chose was an unused/under construction back area with lots of sand- in fact the hotel later added large lily ponds to make them look like the oasis in a desert.
The setting was complete with an Indian bazaar which even had a maalish wala and parrot reader.
Wedding hack: There is nothing more charming then going local and being inspired by the destination/venue you’re in. Plus its cheaper! All the tents were custom printed in Jodhpur, the roses came from Ajmer. We used clay animals bought from the local potter and flowers growing in the hotel lawns to make table arrangements.
