Weddings, Bachelorette Parties, Mehndi & Sangeet Nights, Anniversaries, etc.
Traditionally, brides adorn their hands and feet with breathtaking patterns that mimic the embroidery in their bridal gowns & jewelry. The palms are decorated with the most intricacy because they come out the darkest. The backs of the hands can be just as detailed but usually tend to be a little more subtle on the hand and more detailed on the arm. Most brides decorate their arms to the elbow so that the henna can show through the bangles which often cover half of the forearm. The feet are similarly decorated and can cover as far as the knees. These fine-detailed patterns can take 2-6 hours depending upon intricacy and coverage.
Today women of all cultures are adopting the beauty of the henna body painting and Indian rituals (wearing saris, bindis, etc.) in their weddings as well as other special events. The reddish-brown color of the henna not only looks good with traditional costumes but is quite gorgeous next to a white or off white wedding gown. And the designs are not limited to hands andfeet but, depending on the dress, may flow well on an upper back, chest, arm, etc.
