Mehndi- An Integral Part of Every Indian Wedding

Mehndi, or henna as some of you may know it, is one of the most important parts of an Indian wedding. Both the bride and groom’s families have their own celebration where the women of the family apply mehndi in anticipation of the wedding. For my cousin’s wedding, the mehndi was one of the first events for the wedding, so everyone was really excited to kick off the festivities the right way. We sang, danced, and enjoyed a live singer who sang old Bollywood songs!

The day after we applied mehndi was more fun, because we all compared how dark our mehndi came out. They say that the darker your mehndi, the better your husband will be…hmm…we’ll see about that.
