Bridal Mehndi ,Weddings, Ceremonies
Mehndi has been a tradition in India to apply to the bride to be and her wedding party a few days before the event in marking the passage of becoming a wife and starting a new life. With blessings to her and her family and friends a bride might do her hands and feet and hide a secret message to her husband to find in her henna design, the idea behind the henna stain is to not do house work or chores until the henna has worn off as a gift to the bride. This is a time for the bride to be waited on hand and foot. There are many symbols that can be drawn for a blessing for long life, wisdom, love, fertility,strength and unity. Then the beautiful henna stain is a gorgeous addition to the brides gown and her bridesmaids for the wedding day. To bring a group of women together like this way is fantastic!
