Mehndi Designs can be no Indian & Pakistani wedding without the Mehndi. The bride’s hands are always decorated with the reddish orange hue of the mehendi. The traditional pattern involves a lot of delicate detailing with fine, thin lines for lacy and floral. This covers the entire hands, forearms and feet and can be a little time consuming. Traditional Mehndi patterns have seen an evolution of late. Henna is also known to have a cooling property when used on skin and can also be used on the hair to get a tinge of red.
