  • Washington DC Wedding!

    Hi everyone! I don't know the Washington DC area very well and I'm hoping someone can help me with recommendations. We're coming for a wedding in July and will be staying near Reston.

    1. Mehndi lady - we are looking for someone to come to the house to apply mehndi for 20-25 ladies.
    2. Formal Hair/MU - we are looking for someone (or a team) to come to the house for formal hair and make up for 12-15 ladies.

    If you know of any vendors that do a good job, please share the contact info. Thank you!

    Hi! I live in Maryland and recently got married as well. Here are the pages of some popular vendors in the area

    I got my makeup done from someone named Malia. I wanted a softer bridal look and didn't want the standard desi bridal look. Heres her page

    A very popular makeup artist in Maryland at least is Mahwish Ali. I've had friends get their bridal makeup done from her. She does a really good job but its your very standard bridal look

    Other Popular makeup artists in the area are:
    Iram Ali:

    Afshan Khan:



    There are many more actually but do your research and try getting a trial done beforhand!!

    As far as mehndi... This was a little bit of struggle for me. Finding someone that did a good job and charged a reasonable price was hard. Here are some in the area:

    I hope this helps!! Good Luck

        Highly recommend @Hennaink.rehma for mehndi!! She's been my go-to for a few years now. I'm always amazed by her work and her speed and the stain is always so gorgeous!

        Also, I agree with all the make up artist suggestions. However, even though Masooma's work is great, she is not reliable. I have heard from many people that even though she agrees to do makeup, she always comes up with some excuse before the actual day to start at a later time than what was originally agreed upon. She ends up coming late and rushes to finish makeup. So definitely not an ideal situation for a group of girls.

        Hope this helps!
