Beautiful! We’re doing the same. Did you do it all in one day or separate days? We’re doing a 10 am Christian ceremony, then lunch and pictures, then an afternoon Hindu ceremony, then cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. It’ll be a long day!

It looks like you didn’t do henna, I’m not planning on doing henna because I don’t want it in my Christian wedding pictures. Was your husband’s family okay with you not doing henna? I hope my FI’s family will be okay with it…

If you have any advice at all on how to pull this off, I would really appreciate it!

@sah612:  Stock up on your favourite bottled/sparkling water.  You’re the bride; you shouldn’t drink anything from a tap that day, other than some craft beer!

@Mumbles88:  I’m doing the same thing – so nice to see other people who have also had two ceremonies!  I thought my fiance and I were the only crazy ones 🙂 We are doing our Hindu ceremony on a Friday morning, and a Jewish ceremony and reception the next afternoon/evening (Saturday).  I’m probably doing henna on my palms only, as well. Your pics are beautiful!!  If you have any tips please do pass them along! 🙂

@Mumbles88:  Very beautiful pictures!! Congrats!! I also had two cermonies. We had a muslim ceremony where I wore a sari and had henna done on both my hands and feet. Then we had a destination wedding in Cuba where I wore a traditional wedding dress and had a bridal party. It was really fun to have two different ceremonies but it was twice the work!! The henna washed off in time for our Cuba wedding because it was within a week of each other thats why I chose to have it done

@Mumbles88:  You look gorgeous in both dresses! 

 

 We did a Hindu ceremony with a western reception afterwards.  I did have mehndi done on my palms, inner forearm and feet.  I also LOVED wearing two outfits 🙂

@Mumbles88:  The henna was soooo fun! I loved getting it done but I was ready after awhile for it to wash off. I know have tan lines of the pattern on my feet because of the sun at our destination wedding. Below is my favourite picture of the henna I got done
