A major part of any Indian wedding are mehendi tattoos, otherwise known as a henna tattoos. A henna tattoo is created from the dye found in a henna tree. On the day before or day of the wedding, it is customary for the bride to get a henna tattoo on her hands and feet.
Mehendi and henna designs are a fun and beautiful way of complimenting and enhancing the overall bridal look, as well as representing the love between the bride and groom. It is believed that the mehendi ceremony will awaken the bride’s inner light and so the sun is an important symbol and is traditionally included at the centre of the mehendi design. Some also believe that the degree of darkness of the final mehendi design, represents how much the groom will love his bride. So the darker the mehendi, the more love shared between the bride and groom.
