Mehndi function is an exciting, fun-packed customary pre-wedding event for a to-be-bride and her friends as well as relatives. Mehndi ceremony before the wedding is a special day in the life of a bride. Besides, Indian brides are a huge fan of intricate mehndi designs. Usually, the morning of the mehndi ceremony starts with the ritual of haldi. It is basically about applying turmeric paste on the bride’s face, feet and hands. At night, a professional mehndi artist is hired for the henna application. The design could range from being highly intricate to minimalist. Depending on the overall look of the bride and her preferred choice, she can also opt for Arabic or Moroccan mehndi design. One of the most trending designs these days is Indo-Arabic style. Some of the other popular mehndi designs include Rajasthani style, embellished design, and even tattoo mehndi patterns.beautiful-mehndi-designs-41

The most popular motifs that can be selected for winter weddings are:

1. Paisleys: One of the major highlights of an Indian mehendi design, paisleys are a complex pattern of peacocks, flowers, along with various other unique curls and curves. This motif defines a highly intricate design/pattern. With paisleys as a part of the mehndi design, there is a very little scope of space on the canvas (hands; palms; feet; legs).

2. Bride and groom: The figurines of dulha-dulhan (groom and bride) is one of the most auspicious wedding mehndi motifs. Most Indian mehndi designs offer this motif as the centerpiece of the entire design (especially for the hands).beautiful-mehndi-designs-42
