Getting ready for a wedding can be a maddening rush; and if it’s your own wedding it’s madness multiplied by 100! Right from the mehndi, attire, makeup and yes, the hairstyle, the bride needs to organize so much. The perfect bridal look is achieved when all these elements are well thought of, planned and executed by professionals. Each element of ‘getting ready’ is a mix of comfort, choice and trends.
