Spread the love

In India, the art of applying henna to the body is called Mehndi and it’s one of the oldest forms of body art in the world. Applying Mehndi before a wedding, one of the oldest Indian traditions signifies the love and affection between the couple and their families. A few popular beliefs surround the tradition: The darker the mehndi, the deeper the love between the couple. The color also represents the love and understanding between the bride and her mother-in-law. Long-lasting mehndi = good fortune and prolonged happiness for the newlyweds. It’s also a symbol of fertility.
