Mehndi ~~

Mehndi ~~ A tradition of India and Pakistan

Hearing the word “Mehndi” there are two things that comes to our mind. One is the occasion that is celebrated in a Muslim Wedding and the other is the word that can be applied to hands and foot on different occasions and festivals..


The festival of Mehndi is also being celebrated in Hindus Wedding and it is the most important and enjoyable function of any wedding. 

Applying Mehndi

Applying Mehndi now has been widened in this modern world and the girls are now applying it to arm, neck and even shoulder. The bride however confined herself to use it on hands, arm and foot only.  

Today my post is going to show some of the designs to give the idea, so that brides to be can have the idea and other girls can also choose the design to be applied next on any occasion or generally if you are addicted to it :P Check below the designs <3

The traditional mehndi looks much better if it give the proper color. When it was unable to give the proper color then comes the trend of red and black mehndi, which has become popular.
