Getting married in Spring? Then this is the simple mehndi designs for back hands you should get on your hands and feet! If mother nature is in full bloom then so should your mehndi be!

Another one of the oldest and prettiest traditional Mehndi elements, the traditional circular pattern. The size of the circular ring might vary, but you can incorporate both in full circles or semi-circle and they will both look just as gorgeous. Most of the brides usually go for a circle in the centre with bigger concentric ones working around it in different motifs and patterns. However, this unique design stands in its own right, with smaller circles incorporated on the side of the hand instead of the centre. Not to forget the generous sprinkling of vines and paisleys.
