Bridal Archives Vol.3: How to Choose a Mehindi Design for Your Wedding

Hey Everyone!

The Mehindi ceremony is one the awaiting and important ceremony in the Indian Weddings. A Wedding is incomplete without a mehindi ceremony. Here the Mehindi/Henna patterns are drawn in bride’s hands and feet, even the family members, friends and relatives get lovely patterns on their hands which are the symbol or mark of the “celebrations”.

The bride’s mehindi design is the center of attraction here! As I’m a Tamilian (South Indian) here we don’t celebrate a separate mehindi ceremony in weddings but in recent days people started to enhance the idea and mehindi became important do for every bridezilla. Mehindi brings love and happiness and as for me mehindi is mandatory till arms :)
