Dulha-dulhan motifs are an all-time favourite pattern when it comes to bridal mehendi. And there’s no denying that they look extremely pretty. In fact, we recently did a post on the prettiest mehendi designs and most of them featured intricate work and wedding rituals drawn on the hands. And today, we’ve found another 10 stunning designs, but with a modern twist! If you’re looking for something that’s more than just the regular and looks edgy and modern… Here it is!
1. Just a little something

2. Birdie love!

3. Couple portraits!

4. Dancing away

5. Pretty peacock feet

6. Roses are for love

7. Criss n’ cross
Image: Morvi Images on InstagramWe are loving the criss-cross pattern mehendi that this bride chose. And even more interesting is how each finger and the back of her hand have been made to look different from each other while the pattern remains the same.
8. Go in for a jaal

9. Back to basics

10. Something artistic
