Intimate Mehndi Ceremony is a happy and joyous occasion to get your happy face on. Incidentally, the cost of an Indian wedding may go up to Rs 5 to 50 lakhs and above. When you employ the services of an event management company, the cost can go up more.
Not everyone can afford that kind of budget, and for intimate ceremonies, it is not needed. So, let us get to know a few décor ideas for an intimate wedding and related ceremony.
The mehndi ceremony
The ceremony of Mehendi is a ritual as well as a get-together where the friends and family, usually only female members come and share the bride’s happiness before the actual marriage day. Here the main program is the painting of intricately detailed drawings by an artist using henna.
The costs of a DIY Mehendi goes around Rs. 50000 only with family and friends. You can get some savings on the décor by giving it a touch of your own.
Some of the ideas
Apart from the cost, the occasion also gets a personal touch from the intimate décor. The occasion, the merriment, and the presence of the loved ones make for all that is needed.
Using things available to you, or more or less personal to you can make for a personalized vibe. Here are some of the décor ideas you may look about for your special day;
1. Using old trunks
Got any old trunks lying around from your parents’? Why not get them painted and stacked in an artistic way? This type of décor will be personalized and also be a little quirky.
You can also get a great frame for the photos and the selfies you take. You can also make them as a surface for other decorative items and trinkets.
2. Using nature
Got a garden? Or a driveway lined by trees? You can create a comfy, intimate setting using garland of marigold flowers or any other flowers you like.
Using the foliage and plants and making them a part of your décor too will work. Although, try to avoid plastic flowers in this setting as much as you can.
3. Old glass bottles are unique embellishments
You can also use old glass bottles as a decorative piece? Hang them, wrap LEDs around them, use them as the centerpiece for flower decoration, or even as stands for candles, whatever suits your fancy.
You can also paint them or cover them up with jute ropes to make them more interesting.
4. Origami background
Remember those paper swan and triangles you used to make in your childhood? You can use your origami skills to make for a peppy backdrop for your mehndi function.
Use different colored papers, ribbons, and glitters also if you need dramatic effects.
According to reports, the cost of decoration and make-up/ henna artist comes to 7-11% and 3-8% of the total, which means about Rs. 50,000 at a minimum.
Going the Intimate mehndi ceremony route can reduce these costs, so taking the help of a friend with an artistic eye for the choice of décor will be a good step.
