The wedding season is coming up and wedding without Mehndi is nothing.The Mehendi ceremony is one of the most fun-filled and glamorous pre-wedding occasions in India that generally takes place a day or two prior to the wedding. It is considered to be one of the oldest wedding traditions.
The paisley print is a timeless classic. The curved motifs are done in many forms, like the popular mango design. The design has small and pretty paisleys on the fingertips and larger paisleys on the palm.
This pattern is all floral and completely fabulous. The tiny leaves accentuate the bride’s long fingers and the large flower design is shaded to create depth. With petals and vines of various sizes, the design looks very delicate, yet intriguing.
The domes and floral designs resemble the designs carved into cemented pillars of a royal residence. The major focus of this design is the chequered and split pattern – very similar to a tapestry, but we cannot ignore the paisleys and petals on the wrist and fingers, as they are pretty eye-catching too.
The raja and rani motif is very common in bridal mehndi designs. This design showcases an artwork of a king and queen from the Mughal era. Intricate patterns have been drawn around the two faces to make the focal point of the design stand out.
