Indian Mehndi Artists
Every Maharani bride knows that the mehndi party is one of the most fun and meaningful parts of getting married! The iconic ceremonial art form of mehndi dates back to ancient Vedic tradition and is an integral part of the 16 bridal adornments that make up the solah shringar. The love, health, beauty, luck, and prosperity that will define your marriage are even believed to rely in part on the lasting color of your mehndi after your wedding.
In Indian wedding traditions henna or mehndi parties take place the day before the wedding and serve as a fun and casual gathering of family, friends, and other relatives. Though the artistic process of applying henna itself is painstaking and time-consuming, for the perfect most ornate Indian bridal mehndi design, it is totally worth it. Plus, it’s believed that applying henna to the hands and feet calms the nerve endings there and effectively helps relieve any stress the bride has before her big day. And nowadays, Indian brides incorporate a little more pomp and circumstance into their Mehndi parties with music, dancing, food, and gifts.
Traditional wedding mehndi designs include symbolic Indian motifs like peacocks, detailed floral and paisley patterns, Hindu gods, and replicas of the bride and groom. Many Maharani brides also like to hide the initials of their husband-to-be somewhere in the intricate and elaborate designs. Your Indian bridal mehndi design should truly be unique to you so make sure to choose imagery and coverage that matches your aesthetic sensibility, embraces your family heritage, and compliments your bridal outfit.
A professional Indian wedding henna artist will bring a skillful and artistic eye to your designs as well as know the latest mehndi trends and tips and tricks for making the henna take on a darker hue. After all, according to custom, the darker the final product, the more love your marriage will have. Even though the body art continues to darken in the days after it is removed, it is still recommended to keep it on your body anywhere from 6 to 8 hours.
