Dear all my lovely readers, Today I am ready with a post on preferable Mehandi designs for wedding Party functions other than for brides. Mehandi is something we all like to put in our hands for any auspicious occasions in India. Let me explain some important facts and definitions of Henna i.e., Mehandi. Mehandi means henna, but it is most commonly used in the west as a term for the designs painted on the hands, feet, or other parts of the body, using henna as the stain or paste. This makes what is sometimes called a “temporary tattoo”.
Mehandi are widely used throughout southern and western Asia and Africa. Sometimes this is to protect the skin from the sun, sometimes for weddings, and sometimes for simple beautification. It depends on the culture and local area customs.
There are many recipes for henna Mehandi, but the most common use some sort of adhesive to hold the henna on the skin long enough to stain it, and acid to set it. Sometimes other ingredients containing tannins or other natural dyes, such as coffee or indigo, are added to the mix to make it darker. A plain, natural henna stain is light orange-brown. Nilgiri oils or kattha will make it a little richer brown. Freshly ground coffee will make it a very rich brown. Beet juice will make it red. Indigo will give it a bluish tint, and black walnut hulls will make it dark brown. With any chemical or dye, even if it’s natural, take care to do an allergy test before marking larger areas of the body.
Indians have a fondness for Mehandi no matter what the age is, kids to old ladies love to put Mehandi in various festivals and wedding functions. Mehandi ceremonies in Indian weddings are very important and considered lucky for would be bride and groom’s happy married life. So during Mehandi functions every woman under the roof applies Mehandi along with the bride.
Generally other than bride, rest of the women and girls put a lighter Mehandi as per their extent of desire to put. Only brides put heavy Mehandi on their hands in the weddings. Today I will show you the lighter versions of the wedding party Mehandi design. These are the latest designs and in vogue.
The traditional round Mehandi are always in vogue. You can never go wrong with them and Arabic Mehandi derived from the Middle East is also an all time favorite. They are easy to apply and hardly take time to put on the hands yet they fill the hands so wellJ. You can also apply foot Mehandi for wedding party but they have to be light & in style, then only it will give the perfect look
Hope you all enjoy them and try out during the upcoming weddings you are gonna attend. Do comment and let us know your views on the same. Shine in the wedding parties and show the world your best hands. Till then cya girls 🙂
