Mehendi in Wedding Celebrations

Posted by Khush Singh-Celebrity & Indian Bridal Makeup Artist

In India, Mehendi is used in celebrations like weddings and other special occasions which are traditionally associated with transcendence and transformation. It is a common tradition for Indian bride to get together with her close friends and spend hours applying mehendi on her hands and feet and get marriage advise in tandem. The mehendi patterns used for wedding are much more intricate and time consuming and therefore bride’s friends have lots of time to give her advice and tease her about the coming wedding night. The bride’s henna must be more beautiful in intricate than anyone else’s to make her stand out on her special day. Bride has to look after her henna carefully till it becomes dry and ensure no accidental spill over.

Mehendi designs have traditionally fallen into four different styles. The Middle Eastern style is made up of floral patterns similar to Arabic textiles, paintings and carvings. The North African style follows the shape of the hands and feet using geometrical floral patterns. Indian and Pakistani design encompass more than just feet and hand and generally extend further up the appendages to give illusion of glove and stockings which are made up of lines paisley pattern and teardrops. Lastly the Indonesian and Southern Asian styles are a mix of a Middle Eastern and Indian design using blocks of colour on tip of toes and finger.  All of these styles remain popular today but have also been joined by popularity of Celtic designs and Chinese symbols.

Going with recent trends, the thick line Arabic mehendi is really popular with young girls these days; however the bridal mehendi girls still prefer the fine line style of traditional embroidery mehendi. The green mehendi with coloured stones is in vogue this season. The coloured stick- on stones are matched with the ensemble of the bride and used in patterns of the mehendi to add to the look of the bride. To add more luxury to your henna, Swarovski stones can also used in the motifs of the mehendi to compliment the diamonds in the bridal jewellery.

Have fun with the designs and experiment with them until you find something that you feel really passionate about. To get more insight on the mehendi designs in vogue hire a reputed henna professional.
