While most brides-to-be choose mehndi designs for hands well in advance, they often forget about the foot designs. Selecting the foot mehndi design isn't a task that you should leave for the very last minute.

Mainly because you want to book a mehndi artist who can work their magic, and make the desired designs for your ceremony. Furthermore, having selected a few favourite mehndi designs only makes the process easier.

You can see whether the artist has the talent and experience required to make the selected design on their Instagram or any other social media where they present their work.

So if you or your BFF are getting married soon, read on as we share our top 21 simple foot mehndi design ideas to help you make a perfect choice.

Though minimal, this simple foot mehndi design is of contemporary nature. The classic Mandala is linked by the dotted chain to the patterned finger design. This gives a much-needed makeover to the regular Mandala round mehndi design.

Beautified with the tiny rose buds amidst the straight jacketed chadar design, this simple foot mehndi design is pretty and perfect for a cheeky bride-to-be. The fine lines are used brilliantly in a way that they lure the eye to focus on the more prominent elements of the design.

With a fine Jaal design neatly drawn between floral vines, this simple foot mehndi design is super chic. Even though its simplicity might cause someone to ditch it for heavy design, the new-age bride-to-be would go for a design like this in a heartbeat.

The Mandala is comfortably positioned in the centre of the foot between the Jaal design which extends towards the fingers and the heavy henna design that is wrapped around the ankle to create a modern design using classic elements.

The lotus motif makes for a simple foot mehndi design. It symbolises the purity of the relationship that the bride and groom are heading towards. The detailed wreath around this design creates a retro look for the modern bride.  

12. Mehndi Anklet

When you don’t want to follow the ongoing trend of wearing floral jewellery at your Mehndi ceremony and wearing a Payal is just too much work, this mehndi anklet design is perfect. With heavy detailing and precision, this simple foot mehndi design eliminates the need for an actual anklet or Payal altogether.

13. Mandala Pattern With A Floral Twist

We love how the Mandala pattern is surrounded by the delicate never-ending leafy vine loop. And not to forget the small bindi design that covers all the free space. While you can choose not to get this bindi design done, we think it makes this simple foot mehndi design look different than the oh-so-regular Mandala pattern focused designs.

14. Paisley Design

Paisleys have always managed to find their way in even the most simple mehndi designs - they either grace the finger mehndi or become the dominant element of the design. Here, the finger design is half a flower made of swirls, while the paisley is the focal element.

15. Shade It Right

The design that starts from the edge in the form of a folded pattern goes on to become an intricate bel of flowers and leaves that reach towards the ankle. The fine detailing of the design makes this classic look manifest as a chic and bold design.

16. Swirly Patterns

The dotted mehndi anklet design has an inverted dreamcatcher branching from the top as an eclectic element. The centre of the foot has been covered by a contemporary Mandala which is adorned by petals on both the ends. The finger design is minimal and doesn’t take away from the sheer artistry of this simple foot mehndi design.

17. The Floral Magic

This simple foot mehndi design is all about heavy florals and a connected petal pattern. The minute work done in this design creates a semblance of a heavy and more traditional mehndi design. The finger design has multiple elements meshed together to complement the intricacy of the overall design.

Inspired by the peacock feather and the buntings pattern, this simple foot mehndi design has flowers at the heart of it. The anklet flows into a bel punctuated by whirlwind style motifs. This design is a go-to for the vibrant brides-to-be.
