Intricate patterns and the cool refreshing of the henna being drawn on the hands and the feet bring back sweet memories of a wedding at home.A house bustling with activity, women huddled around the bride and the never ending teasing that erupts in laughter reverberate through the years to where you are now.
Mehendi, an ancient form of body art originated in India is popular in South Asia and the Middle East. The Mehendi ceremony is an essential pre-wedding celebration when henna - a red-orange color is applied on her palms, the back of her hands and her feet. The event is held just a day before the wedding. Many believe that the darker the color of the bride's mehendi, the happier the marriage will be. The henna designs symbolize various blessings, luck, joy, and love, and usually hidden in the design is the groom's name.
You miss the sense of camaraderie, the feeling of togetherness and the echoes of laughter in your home during the time of a wedding. Gather your friends and family to celebrate a mehendi day or a mehendi ceremony to enjoy togetherness and to bring back memories of happy days.
