Significance Of Mehndi in the Indian tradition
The significance of mehendi in the wedding scene in the Indian subcontinent is great. Application of mehendi on the hands and feet of the bride is considered very auspicious and a good omen on an overall level. This tradition is also followed in our neighboring countries of Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc. Not just geographically, mehendi is significant in different religions as well. Islamic literature states that Prophet Mohammed used to apply mehendi to his beard and it was also used to cure the sick.
Mehendi signifies love and affection between the couple and its colour signifies the depth of the love along with being a symbolic representation of fertility. Mehendi has many medicinal benefits. It aids the growth of nails and has a cooling effect hence soothing stress, headaches and fever. It also protects the couple from any viral disease immediately before the big day.

Design ideas for Mehendi Ceremony
Bridal mehendi can be called a science of its own. It is superbly vast and has many nuances to it. Your mehendi can be designed in a variety of styles and designs, based on your selection. Mentioned below are the broad styles that bridal mehendi can be distinguished into.
- Traditional Indian Mehendi Design is characterized by intricate motifs and elaborate floral designs that cover the entire space of the palms and the arms, usually leaving no space in between.
- In Arabic Mehendi Design flowers and leaves are used and arranged in a particular pattern. Thick outlines of flowers and the leaves are made, and some space is left on the palm in a way that it looks clean and uncluttered.
- Pakistani mehendi designs has a fusion style that incorporate elements of both the traditional Indian design and the Arabic design. Black mehendi is majorly used to make floral and Arabic style leaf pattern outlines. The inner designs are done with red mehendi
- Rajasthani Mehendi Design mainly represent folk, dance, traditions and the colours of the Rajasthani culture. These designs are very unique to look at and make heavy use of flowers and leaves, mainly mango leaves, peacocks etc. for an ethnic look. Another technique used in this style of mehendi design is the ‘mirror reflecting technique’. The designs on both the arms and both the legs are mirror images of each other and hence Rajasthani mehendi designs are touted to be very difficult to make.
- African Mehendi Design includes geometric figures, patterns and mainly dots. This is a less frequently used design in the Indian subcontinent.
- Egyptian Mehendi Design is unique in a way that it is very complex and unlike the designs we usually come across. It has a different looking lines, curves, shapes and patterns that usually have some symbolic significance attached to them.
How do I make sure that my Mehendi stays on for longer?
In Indian tradition and folklore, it is said that the darker the colour of the bridal mehendi, the more love will the girl receive from her husband to be. It is also said that the girl with a deep dark mehendi will receive great love from her mother in law. We have listed a few pointers to take note of, so that your mehendi is rich, dark and the talk of the whole town.
- Try to make the henna paste fresh at home or ask your mehendi artist to make it in front of you so that good quality henna is used to get the beautiful desired results.
- Apply the mehendi at least 24 to 48 hours before the wedding day for best results.
- Wash your hands with soap before applying mehendi and dry the properly. Also put oil or cream on your skin prior to application of henna. The grease in the oil or cream will act as barrier between the henna and the skin and will prevent the absorption of the former into the latter.
- Sit in a place with proper lighting and somewhere that is less crowded to avoid unnecessary disturbances. Also, make sure your clothing is comfortable. Yom will surely be the focus of everyone on your mehndi ki raat but make sure that along with being fashionable, your outfit is comfortable and airy because you will be made to sit in the same spot for hours on end.
- Do not sit in the sun while the mehendi is being applied.
- For a rich and dark colour, warm a few cloves in a pan and run your hands over the smoke. This is called the clove steam process.
- Make sure that the mehendi stays on your hand for 8 to 10 hours or a maximum of 12 hours.
- Never use a blow dryer for drying the mehendi. This might smudge the design and spoil it.
- After the henna has dried off slightly, dab a mixture of lemon juice and sugar on it by making use of a cotton ball. You can also opt for some sugar (preferably powdered) spread on a slice of lemon and directly apply it on the mehendi
- Once the mehendi has completely dried off, you can rub it away and apply a balm (like Vics Vaporub) on the hands and the feet
- Try to avoid water or soap for at least 12 hours after removing the mehendi, for best results
