Bridal mehndi is possibly one of the most recognizable and iconic elements of a South Asian bride — aside from the amazing fashions of course. And now, this beautiful tradition has evolved into a wedding day trend for spiritual brides of all faiths across the globe! From her fingers down to her toes, a decorated bride is always looking for unique ways to set herself apart by adding meaningful designs into her henna. From initials to bursts of color, if you look closely, each and every mehndi work of art is as individual as a snowflake. Over the years, you can bet we've seen our share of some of the most brilliant mehndi designs. We even dedicate an entire week every year to seeking out some of the most spectacular mehndi masterpieces from around the world! Below is just a sampling of some super memorable designs that we thought we'd share with our fav Maharanis once more — because let's face it, we can never get enough of all of this heavenly henna! Check them out!
Didn't that just take your breath away? We'll be back tomorrow with another amazing wedding event that you simply won't want to miss!
