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.

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.
