15 carefully curated modern arabic mehndi designs for brides in 2013

Wedding season is approaching, and every bride wants to look unique and special. Every dulhan wants the most modern and latest look. There are many options available, but while getting ready for karva chauth, I must confess that I fell in love with arabic mehndi designs. What are arabic mehndi designs? Well, in an arabic mehndi pattern, the design is characterised by distinctive floral artwork depicted in a free-flowing structure. The floral shapes recur in a unique geometric pattern that covers a large part of the hand or foot. In short, it looks stunning on a bride.

My recommendation is to give the traditional arabic pattern a modern twist.

So, what is a modern arabic mehndi design?

Modern interpretation of traditional arabic mehndi design involves combining traditional fine middle-eastern artwork with a contemporary/modern tapestry design. These modern designs are all about making a statement and adding to the ornamental effect – to ultimately enhance the jewellery of the bride or acting as an accessory to a bridal lehenga. Please note that I am by no means an expert on mehndi designs, but while doing research for this article, I tried to go deep into understanding what makes a great modern arabic mehndi design.

The image below is my attempt to showcase this fusion. So a modern arabic pattern can be understood by imagining a fusion of a modern tapestry with a traditional arabic textile or architectural pattern. Thinking about it this way helped me get the right inspiration for picking the 15 most modern arabic mehndi designs for 2013.
