Traditional mehendi designs for every kind of bride

Femina
Mehendi is an integral part of any Indian wedding. Brides across the country have their own ways of getting intricately-designed palms. Check out the designs that are not only traditional, but have now become popular, transcended borders and can be seen in one form or the other all across the country.


Marwari mehendi style
Spectacular, intricate and finely-detailed, the mehendi designs from this region are showstoppers in their own right. With designs reaching your upper arms and calves, covering any exposed skin, this mehendi can take hours to draw.


Love story style
We know how extravagant a Punjabi wedding is, and the mehendi is no less. You can literally see a story on your arm with kings and queens, a baraat, musicians and even birds and animals at times. Carry your wedding on your arms! The tradition of hiding the groom’s name in the mehendi originates from here.

Arabic style
Influenced heavily by the ancient cultures of Persia and Middle East, these mehendi designs incorporate delicate floral motifs and are drawn like bands around the hand in vines running around. They fill in only the fingertips. This is predominantly seen in Muslim brides.


Bangle style
Kashmiri mehendi designs have a mandala-like circle on the palms and the fingertips also have intricate designs rather than being fully filled in.

Minimalist style
Using mehendi as means to cool the body rather than decorate, these are classic designs originating from dance forms like Bharat Natyam. Simple yet elegant, these are plain filled circles on the palm with dots around and filled finger tips. Bengali brides use alta in the same design. This is red in colour, and matches the red borders of the traditional bridal sari.
