The mehendi ceremony is one of the most imporant wedding rituals that has been held through generations. It is a ritual that goes more than just skin deep, henna is said to have cooling and relaxing properties, therefore, allowing the bride to be calm and serene before she begins a new chapter in her life. It is also said to be a positive omen of good health and happiness, and thus the mehendi ceremony is extremely vital in any wedding celebration. Traditionally, the bride's family will hold the ceremony the day before the wedding day allowing the healing properties of the henna to work their magic on the bride just before the wedding.

As such, most mehendi ceremonies are held at home in intimate gatherings. And that is where most brides get stumped.

Under My Umbrella

Popular for mehendi decor, especially if you hold it out on the terrace or garden/lawn; old umbrellas make for a stylish decor idea. You can add different colour contact paper to liven up plain drab umbrellas if you are doing it yourself, or you can tell your decorator your preferences. Pop of colours goes very well for mehendi ceremonies.

Light Up

If your ceremony is scheduled for the evening/night, break out the fairy lights and hang them around drapes if inside, or trees/plants if outside. If using inside, wrap it around coloured drapes for a lovely mood! Truly sets the scene for gorgeous pictures.
