Bridal Mehandi Biography
Mehndi is made from the henna plant, or lawsonia inermis, the leaves from the henna plant are finely ground and is mixed with lemon juice and oil. The mehndi is only temporary and when washed off shows an orangish-brown color. It is completely safe and painless and has been used for over 5000 years. This art is now popular all around the world.In the design of the mehndi, the groom’s name is usually added upon the brides’ design where his name is to be found by the bride or couple. Each design is very intricate and usually covers up the entire hand. It takes a couple of hours for each mehndi to be completed depending on how detailed it is.
Plan your Henna Night two days before your wedding. It takes around 24 hours for your mehndi to reach its best color.
-If you have a lot of guests arriving, make sure to start your mehndi 3 hours ahead of time.
-Get all your pre- bridal beauty work done before so that nothing will get ruined.
-It takes around 15 to 20 minutes for your mehndi to dry. Once dried, you need to apply lemon sugar solution to help enhance the color. It will start crusting off after a few hours leaving an orange stain to your hands. Keep it away from water for about 10 hours to help last longer and it should last around 2 to 3 weeks.
Mehndi is a great way to bring your relatives and family together a few days before the wedding to enjoy each other’s company and have fun while getting hennas. It is a very unique idea added into the wedding ceremony and can be used for any type of wedding.
