Mehendi is a wonderful herb. We hear, apart from being anti-inflammatory, it imparts a cooling effect that helps a bride curb her pre-wedding jitters.
We can't agree more after seeing Neha enjoying her Mehendi with full gusto. She seemed to be in love with the pretty designs, etched on her palms.
Haldi Function 2
Haldi is another herb which is indispensable in every Hindu ritual. After all, who can ignore the antiseptic skin-brightening properties of turmeric?
The couple's Haldi witnessed a plethora of emotions oozing from their near and dear ones. The smiling faces were often accompanied by misty eyes.
The groom's mother was in a jovial mood as she applied Haldi paste on her beloved son. Rushabh enjoyed every bit of the moment along with his gang.
Getting Ready 3
A Queen in Making
Neha's trousseau was what dreams are made of. The red & gold lehenga-choli, diamante high heels & a variety of jewelry - what more can anyone ask for?
To complete her bridal look, Neha's stylist accentuated her already impressive features. The onlookers were spellbound on seeing the decked-up bride.
The 'Varmala' evoked laughter all around as Neha struggled to put the garland on Rushabh. Despite the funny antics their camaraderie was unmistakable.
Neha looked emotional as her father did her Kanyadaan; a painful ritual for both father & his child, coz a daughter never outgrows her father's heart.
The couple performed all the rituals with great respect. During their Phera, they swore the seven sacred vows which propel towards a harmonious life.
The wedding was completed as Rushabh tied the Mangalsutra & put vermillion on Neha. The attendees cheered & sprinkled flower petals on the newlyweds.
Their post-wedding rituals involved a lot of traditional games. Neha won a majority of them which signified that she's going to rule her man's heart.
After an evening worth remembering, it was time to say goodbye. Everyone wished the couple a lifetime of happiness as they proceeded for the 'Vidaai.'
