Getting a beautiful latest mehndi design etched on your hands and feet is so much more than just a normal Indian custom. Back in the day, when we were schoolgirls, we would patiently wait for the festive season to run to a mehndi artist sitting with his book full of mehndi in a nearby market, or call mom's trusted mehndi artist home to drench our tiny hands in the beauty of henna. We would watch the beautiful hands and legs of our mother and other aunts at home in awe on occasions like Karwa Chauth and Diwali.

In every step of the journey from adolescence to adulthood, mehndi designs have played a huge role to mark every milestone. In Indian families, we celebrate every occasion, every wedding, and every festive ritual or offering with the touch of henna in our hands. In time, wearing mehndi has been categorized as a symbol of 'Solah Shringar' in Indian women and has always been crowned as the 'auspicious mark' to celebrate traditions or a new beginning.

Bridal mehndi has also witnessed the trend of elegant Arabic mehndi design patterns evolving, while traditional full hand mehndi with portraits of the bride and groom continue to stay evergreen.
