Ahmad Bilal is a Pakistani designer. A couple posts ago I showed some of his dresses that I think are a nice twist for mehndi outfits; this is the promised bridalwear post. I just thought I should also mention that this blog probably wont have the blue/seagreen and limegreen/seagreen combo lehngas because I think they are vile.

My amazing friend Ayeshia told me about this Toronto based henna artist, NJ Henna, I like almost all their bridal designs. On my Nikaah I had henna bridal henna done on my arms (got asked about feet and thought it was too much ha!) and although I thought it was okay, I think these are much more beautiful. They are beautifully intricate designs and hope I'll be able to find someone as good over in Islamabad when I go for my Rukhsati.

I like the idea of having customised mehndi thaals (sp?) so I had a route around the web to find the ones I though were nicest and most inspiring. I particularly like the ones with flowers and petals on.

I'd much rather bridesmaids be dressed like this than in matching uniforms. Or three colours/shades. Some variation please!
Monika and Nirmala are the two women who came up with the concept of creating the perfect ambience for a wedding night (or any other romantic occasion) and created their company Canada based: A Night of Romance. Here are some of the before and after images of their magic touch. Pretty beautiful.

Suneet Verma is an Indian designer who has teamed up with Judith Lieber creating Indian inspired luxury/designer handbags. This is the only one of those bags that I personally like.
The pattern on the clutch just reinforces the floral trend that a lot of designers are including in their bridal wear.
