You can save really big on your mehendi if you follow this tip when it comes to finding the venue. Mostly, the mehendi ceremony is an intimate affair with very less people present. So, it’s better to arrange your mehendi ceremony at your house garden or terrace. If none of these are available, then you can look for other options like your colony’s park, club etc. You can even ask a relative or friend if they have an empty apartment. It will be a great start to planning your mehendi on a low budget if you find a venue for free, isn’t it?
