No Indian Wedding is ever complete without the Mehendi. Whichever part of the country the bride may be from; her hands are adorned with the lovely red hue of the Mehendi.
MEHENDI IS ASSOCIATED WITH A LOT OF THINGS:
- A good dark design is a sign of good luck for the marital couple.
- It is common for the names of the bride and groom to be hidden in the Mehendi design; and the wedding night cannot commence until the groom has found the names.
- Some examples of popular traditional images used in Mehendi designs are the Peacock, which is the National Bird of India, the Lotus Flower, and an Elephant with a raised trunk, which is a symbol of Good Luck.
- From adorning brides' hands, to being used to make hip tattoos on arms and bellies, Mehendi or Henna has gone cosmopolitan thanks to the attention it gets through stars like Maddona, No Doubt and Bjork.
