Mehndi henna designs have always been used in wedding in India, and they are actually mentioned in folk stories of the past as well. The usage of wedding mehndi has been upheld until today, and in countries such as Yemen, the art of applying mehndi for a wedding would take close to four to five days just to satisfy traditional requirements during the wedding festival. The same could be said in Pakistan, where the brides usually decorate themselves with gorgeous mehndi to make themselves look extra-radiant on their big day.

In today’s modern world, there are numerous mehndi henna design books around that display the numerous mehndi stages to be undertaken to complete the art of mehndi, a clear indication of how times have changed from the times of the past when the art of mehndi was passed on through word of mouth. Nevertheless, the historical art of mehndi continue to captivate millions around the world, and would continue to do so for years to come!

Ever went to an Indian or Pakistani wedding ceremony and marveled at the beauty of the designs and artworks on the hands and the feet of the bride? For those that are not sure of what these are, the artworks are called mehndi, and they are prepared using henna (usually natual henna) which originates from the leaves of the henna plant. Another name for the henna plant is the cypress flower plant, and the word henna itself comes from the Arabic word of hinna.
