Relevance of Mehendi

The custom of applying ‘Mehendi’ to a bride, or as they call it in certain cultures – ‘Henna’, has been an important ceremony in most Indian and Arabian marriages, dating back to as far as traditions can hold. But where most traditions seem like a duty, a bride’s Mehendi ceremony is rather taken-up as another opportunity for merriment. And since the charm of a traditionally clad Indian bride lies in the intricate detailing that adorns her hands and feet, the Mehendi design plays an important part in the ceremony. Latest Mehendi Design, Wedding Planner in India, 2018, 2019

Wedding being the most important day in one’s life, Mehendi has become an ornament for the soon to be brides. There is, in fact, one whole ceremony dedicated to its celebration popularly known as Mehendi Ceremony or Mehendi Ki Raat’. This significance may be attributed to symbolic meaning of Mehendi i.e. fertility.

Mehendi Ceremony is among the pre wedding rituals in Indian weddings performed a day prior to the marriage. Just as Haldi ceremony symbolizes cleanliness, Mehendi signifies beautification. According to popular belief, the darker the color of the Mehendi of bride, the more her husband will love her. As a tradition, the bride is not allowed to work in her marital house till the time her Mehendi does not fade away. This ceremony is primarily a women function, which takes place amidst musical beats of Dholak, with women singing traditional songs for a prosperous marital life of the bride. Among the intricate patterns of the Mehendi will be hidden the groom’s name or his initials, which he will have to later find. This fun game breaks the ice for the couple and creates intimacy.
